Zenchat as a Skype alternative

Skype is a software designed to improve communication between teams, family and friends. It allows people to send instant messages, share files, and make voice and video calls easily. What if there was a feature to differentiate conversational communication from task-oriented chatting? What if important information such as actionable tasks could be tracked in the conversation? What if teams are discussing something that needs a more complicated project management tool to manage?

This is why we’ve created Zenchat, a team messaging and chat solution with integrated task management. As part of our Zenkit Suite, Zenchat is deeply integrated with other products in the Zenkit Suite, including the original Zenkit Base (project management tool), Zenkit To Do (task management tool), and many more to come. That means team members can easily chat about any projects and tasks, and managers can use sophisticated views for more complex project management.

With Zenkit, we’ve developed an easy to use, yet powerful Suite that evolves and adapts to your needs. If you are looking for a full-featured alternative to Skype, give Zenchat a try!
