    Real-Time Notifications

    Enterprise chat systems that provide social features, such as @mentions, make it easy for teams to stay connected and keep the right people in the know, regardless of where they are. Customizable notifications help users receive notifications from the rooms and people most important to them, which helps cut through the noise of information available and focus on the updates that matter most.

    It also facilitates faster decision making than email. Users can easily stay abreast of urgent notifications that may otherwise get lost in their inbox, so they don't have to constantly check their email or monitor other applications for updates.

Email was created as an electronic replacement for long-form letters, memos and external communication. And it does a decent job for that. But email today is broken because it is being used for things it was not designed to do, such as real-time communication and collaboration on work.

New technology offers better ways to have conversations and discussions, both one-to-one and involving an entire team. Enterprise chat systems address the inefficiencies of email by improving the speed of communication and making it easy for anyone to join a conversation at any time. Equally important, they help break down information silos that email naturally creates by making communication more open, inclusive and dynamic. This is essential for all teams, and it is proving to increase response time with the side benefit of a reduction in email volume and an improved team culture.

Whether your team is already using one or is considering it, read on to learn seven must-haves every enterprise chat system should provide to help teams be more productive, as identified by HipChat.
