Our team uses Quip to collaborate on content and ideas.
We now use Quip in conjunction with Podio; we create a project or task in Podio, and when a document, presentation, image, or spreadsheet needs to be worked on, we use Quip.
Quip makes the document a living document…it keeps track of all changes, comments, and it’s all right there on the screen.
So much easier than using the review function in Word!
