TEAM CHAT SOFTWARE
From across the office or across the world, sharing a quick comment with an individual or an entire team is easy. Smart notifications make it even easier to see the lightning-quick comments they're sharing with you.
CHAT IN (YOUR) STYLE
Use video, audio, and good old text messages to chat with co-workers privately, in teams, and alongside project content. We promise, whatever communication style you need at the moment, we've got it dialed in.
CONNECT IN CONTEXT
Pages are the ultimate collaboration tool. They allow your team to share, develop, and track changes to content alongside streaming conversation, so you can get a birds-eye view or dive into the details all in the same place.
COLLABORATE WITH ANYONE
Chat and share content with team members, clients, vendors, contractors - anyone inside or outside your organization. Robust sharing options and permission levels make it easy, all without hopping between a bunch of different apps or hunting through your cluttered inbox.
UNIQUE APPROACH TO TEAM COMMUNICATION
"I highly recommend Samepage! It is easy to navigate and has multiple features that are useful in organizing my webinar handouts/presentations."
"Our team could not live without it. I wish I would have found this sooner. It has been extremely valuable in sharing information in one place with our team."
TEAM CHAT IS THE CENTER OF A GREAT WORKFLOW, BUT...
It's true. As a faster, more informal, and more distraction-free form of communication, team chat tools have become the center of any modern-day team workflow, but teams rarely survive solely on simple chat streams. They're often forced to hop between separate apps for their chat, video conferencing, file sharing, and task management needs.
When they've had enough hopping around, they come here

VERSATILE TEAM CHAT TOOLS
There are plenty of ways to communicate with your team on Samepage. Sharing quick updates - no problem. Commenting on tasks, files, and more - done. No matter what style you prefer, its always just a click or tap away.
One-on-one text messaging
Group & Team text messaging
Page & threaded text messaging
One-on-one audio & video chat
Group & Team audio & video chat
SMARTER THREADED CHAT
Samepage helps you keep conversations organized and attached to the project assets your team is talking about. You can see comments about specific content as part of the overall project discussion, or you can drill down to the comments made about any particular content.
Of course, if you move a file, task, or other asset to another location, the conversation your team had about it stays attached. Learn more in our blog post about why threaded chat is better on Samepage.
CHAT SECURELY WITH ANYONE
Communication and real-time collaboration aren't confined to the members of your organization. You can also connect with vendors, clients, contractors, and other outsiders by inviting them as Guests.
It's easy to invite Guests to specific pages or teams so you can share quotes & invoices, mockups & final design files, tasks & updates - you name it.
Because Samepage is built to handle simple and complex projects alike, you can rest assured that even when you need to connect with co-workers and external contributors on a project, you can do it with enterprise-level security from any device.
Samepage keeps your notifications organized on every device you use, so you can filter real-time updates down to what's really important. Anytime. Anywhere.
Communication isn't the only thing that happens in real time on Samepage. Your team can simultaneously co-author documents, edit spreadsheets, draw diagrams - pretty much anything your collaborative hearts desire.
When you need to point others to your collaborative masterpiece, simply @mention the asset in a chat message and Samepage will convert it to a link. Don't forget to respond with an emoji when someone @mentions an asset and makes your life a little easier

Why teams are beginning to prefer more complete software over the trendy Slack beast
SIMPLE CHAT STREAMS CAN'T COMPETE
Being hit by a wall of overnight chat comments about every project under the sun can be a pretty rough way to start the day. If you're still in pre-coffee mode, it might be hard to mentally unpack that chat stream and reorganize it into something understandable. Fortunately, Samepage does this for you in multiple ways.
- Samepage has Teams and Sub-teams to organize conversations within departments or projects
- Within Teams, Samepage has Team Chat for the small stuff and Page Chat for bigger projects
- Pages each have their own chat stream but also allow you to drill down to threaded conversations on specific text, files, tasks, images, videos, and more
CHATTING DOES NOT EQUAL PRODUCTIVITY
Most team chat apps help you communicate. That's great but its only half the battle. Unfortunately, the other half is often fought in other apps. Tasks, files, calendars, code, and other co-authored assets shouldn't be separate from the conversations you're having about them. That's why Samepage is here.
"It just works! Tried 30 plus different systems - it is the perfect balance of simplicity and power. The philosophy is profoundly elegant and intuitive."
"We have a team across 6 locations in 4 countries and this is our only collaboration tool. It has replaced email and kills any of the other project management tools. We had used 6 other online tools before this one and they were all so clunky. Setting up a project in other tools is not intuitive, whereas Samepage takes less than a minute."
"Anyway, Samepage is nice. Cool interface. Works very well. If you could make my irritating client a little less irritating though, that would be just super."
"I tried many collaboration apps for my team (i.e. Slack, HipChat, Ryver, Spaces, etc.) and none can come close to what Samepage can do. Samepage has amazing features, integration, user-friendliness, speedy support."
"First -- the customer service. One-on-one personalized support with a dedicated support person. Karla was amazing -- personable and very knowledgeable."
"Ultimately if you need a central 'hub' where you can share and communicate without jumping through hoops - Samepage is everything you need wrapped up in a very powerful package that makes my work life that much easier."
"Our team has people from multiple countries. Samepage is the only collaboration tool we need. It's as if we are physically sitting next to each other."
"It's been a blessing to have this product in our organization. I'm really looking forward to see how Samepage can continue to help us work together!"
"The ease of use and efficiency is what makes Samepage standout from other team collaborative tools."
"Samepage provides a very cohesive platform, and has promoted collaboration, transparency and a sense of team. Inviting customers as guests to participate is a real plus. It integrates seamlessly with all our cloud storage solutions and is super easy to use."
"I just decided to switch off one of the more popular platforms. So far my experience with Samepage has been great. Great customer service and I find it much easier to concentrate on each project since everything is literally on the SAME PAGE as your work."
"From the beginning to the end Samepage has won me over. It has made organizing projects and workflows manageable and real-time internal and external collaboration simple."
"There's so much to be said about collaboration tools and the differences among them, but my absolute favorite thing about Samepage is how intuitive and familiar it feels right from the start."
"I honestly don't know what to do without the Samepage platform. It is so fun to use too."
"If you are at the end of your rope with your reliance on email, give Samepage a try. You won't be disappointed."
"We have long needed the functionality of a product like Samepage and since implementing it in both our head office and geographically distant companies, we have increased our efficiency and significantly reduced the amount of time spent emailing, calling, and sending files."
"Samepage is perfect for what we need. I love Samepage and I'd definitely recommend it."
"Following the implementation of Samepage, a typical team member has seen internal email volume drop by 75%."
"I love everything about Samepage. My team loves it. It has increased our efficiency and organization level 10X. No joke."
