Compare HipChat and Samepage feature-by-feature

In a nutshell:

Get more than chat

HipChat is a great chat tool. HipChat and Samepage are pretty similar if you look at the chat features alone. But what about tasks or calendars? HipChat doesn't have them. Samepage has you covered with collaborative spaces for your team including task tracking and team calendars.

Communicate and create in one space

Have your conversations, your files, your tasks, and your entire team in one place with Samepage. Create live multi-media documents on a team page, and discuss progress right alongside that page. Add files from the services you already use. And for files uploaded to Samepage, we'll let you edit them and track the revisions for you. HipChat can't even.
