What is HipChat?
HipChat (http://hipchat.com) is a private group chat and IM client for businesses. It has features like file sharing, video and voice chat, and cool emoticons.
Why should I try it out?
We love the idea of people using AgileZen along with other tools that focus on collaboration and communication. Our integration with HipChat allows AgileZen notifications to be displayed within your team's chat room. This lets users stay up to date on the latest in AgileZen, even if they don't have the board open. If a user finds that they want more information, there are links in each notification to the project or story card, so they can follow up.
