I think Glip's ideal usage is as a central communications hub.  To that end, i agree with many posts above calling for a RC superapp that mergers Glip with the Softphone.  That would allow the removal of all sorts of redundancies between the two:  calendars, message vs. internal text, multiple apps, HUD.  In addition to this, I would add a WIKI service to Glip, OR make the Glip File contents searchable (the way evernote works) in the general search.

I would stop there to preserve the integrity of the communications hub idea and prevent the usage from becoming too specialized on Glip.  Getting a team to hop onto the Glip way of communicating will be enough of a company culture challenge. 

From there, I would suggest the following integrations (vs. API):
  • Project Management (Basecamp, Asana, Zoho, IMeetCentral)
  • Email (all common cloud systems, Exchange, Apple)
  • Outside calendars, including scheduling software (calendly, doodle)
  • Storage:  Dropbox, Sharefile, Google Drive
  • Evernote

This would allow teams to incrementally incorporate larger systems of communcations with out affecting the core use of Glip.

Our team uses Slack and if Glip could work more seamlessly with RingCentral then it might be worth changing for my company and many others.
