Getting Started

Quip's productivity tools transform the way teams work together by deeply integrating documents, spreadsheets, and slides with real-time chat and Salesforce. Quip is 100% cloud-based and built for both your desktop and mobile device, so you can work with your team the way you want to.

Quip is built to help every team in your business — sales, service, marketing, product, IT, and more — work smarter, collaborate more effectively, and increase their productivity. 

Quip helps your teams:

Create Work Together – Quip is designed for teams to be more productive. That means every single feature of Quip is designed for teams to work better together and move work forward, faster.

Work Smarter – With Quip, important decisions and conversations happen inside the document instead of being trapped in people's email inboxes. The result is that teams use less email, they have fewer meetings, and get more done — and they are happier, too.

Work Anywhere – Quip was built from day one to be mobile-first. Every part of Quip works on your phone — from messaging a teammate to concurrently editing a formula in a spreadsheet. Quip makes it easy to run your company from anywhere.

Quip Pricing and Free Trial

Yes. We offer fully functional evaluations of Quip. You can try all of the Quip features, with unlimited users, using unlimited storage (documents, files, messages, etc.).

Evaluating Quip is different from most other evaluations you may have tried. Unlike most free trials, which are based on the number of days since you signed up, our trial is based on you and your team's activity together in Quip. Instead of a predefined number of days to evaluate Quip with your team, we based our trial duration on a certain level of collaborative activities so you are sure to give Quip a thorough examination.

To reiterate, your Quip free trial is fully functional and unlimited. You and your team have all of the features, unlimited users, and unlimited data storage at your disposal.

For example, if you create a document and share it with a teammate, this activity is measured. Once activity reaches 100%, your account will move to read-only until you pay for Quip. On average, once you start collaborating with another person in Quip, the trial typically lasts between 15 and 30 days.

It's time to rethink teamwork with Quip.
