I really like HipChat, not only because it's available on whatever "machine/device" you use but it has a ton of add-ons that you can integrate in you chat room that keep you and your team constantly aware of what's happening with your business.
hey tried to signup but after i entered my phone number i never received an activation code. tried twice. let me know when it's ready - am looking for this service for a project we're working on: firstname.lastname@example.org
Hipchat provides a comprehensive and searchable chat system for development and customer relations. It is integrated with GitHub and JIRA so our developers can have specific rooms for each project, and we also have rooms for each customer tied into their Twitter feeds so we know what is relevant and can track issues via Nagios alerts.
Everyone in our company uses HipChat. From our help center to our engineering department, we do most of our internal conversations in hipchat rooms. Also as a remote engineering team, it is super useful to have a service like this so that conversations are logged and in the open.
Part of our team are spread over cities and they are connected by chats or conference, sharing insights, alerts and tech discussions.
I use HipChat to communicate with group members. I like that I can hop on and catch up on any conversations that I missed.
Team communications and notices, such as when a test suite has run, when commits have been made to one of our git repos.
Perfect solution for rich content group chat plus self hosted secure IM solution.
