Quip is a mobile productivity suite that provides a way for people to collaborate across nearly any Internet-connected device. Combining features like online chatting, document storage, and checklists, Quip has been embraced by users in a variety of industries.
Although Quip offers dozens of productivity tools, it’s the application’s document collaboration capabilities that most people will notice first. Using Quip, you can edit the same version of a document with colleagues or collaborators. Rather than forwarding multiple attachments and creating separate email chat threads, you can upload a document to Quip once and chat about the progress of that document in the chat thread that appears along the left-hand side. You can also create a checklist that includes all the items that need fixing before your document will be complete.
While most Quip users will collaborate on text files, the application also supports collaboration on spreadsheets. The entire Quip productivity suite is accessible both online and offline, which means users can work on their documents (and even send messages) whether they’re in the office or in the air. Any work that’s done offline is synced immediately when the user’s device is once again connected to the internet.
