The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we work as a team and, even after entering the period of deflation, many companies still adopt teleworking strategies. If organizing a project among the different members was complicated before, the distance certainly did not make the process easier.
Quip wants to help teams that get lost between chains of feedback emails and documents that are always changing from title to variant of final version. The application combines characteristics of platforms such as Google Docs and Slack, allowing you to create live documents and facilitating collaboration.
As a team creates a document about a future project, members can give feedback to each other and discuss possible changes or aspects to consider in an in-app chat. In order not to lose the thread, you can also point out all the important points in a to-do list.
The application provides several templates for documents, whether they are just plain text, presentations or tables and graphs. It is also possible to import files from storage services such as Dropbox, Google Drive and Box, as well as from platforms such as Google Docs and applications such as Evernote. All the content produced can then be exported to Microsoft Office or to PDF.
Quip has a free version available for Android, on the Play Store, and for iOS, on the App Store. The application also features paid versions for small and large businesses, with prices starting at 10 dollars a month.
