        Hall works great with services such as github, crashlytics, bitbucket etc to give your team real time information on activities going on in those sites without having to visit them individually. It gives our team some peace of mind knowing that all our information to coming directly to us when we need it!

        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.

        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.

        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.
