    Hipchat provides a comprehensive and searchable chat system for development and customer relations. It is integrated with GitHub and JIRA so our developers can have specific rooms for each project, and we also have rooms for each customer tied into their Twitter feeds so we know what is relevant and can track issues via Nagios alerts.

    Everyone in our company uses HipChat. From our help center to our engineering department, we do most of our internal conversations in hipchat rooms. Also as a remote engineering team, it is super useful to have a service like this so that conversations are logged and in the open.
