Is there a "favorite" integrated chat app?

Am I the only one that finds communication within a client portal critical? It seems weird to me that there isn’t a better way to communicate within each portal. My client portals involve myself, my client (1-3 people on their team) 1 internal employee, and depending on the project itself, 1-3 external freelancers.

I don’t see anything “built in” that would work or even anything planned and some of these external apps are quite pricey! But I don’t want my staff nor my clients going in and out of different apps for the same project- What do you recommend?

Has anyone tried campfire yet? Could that work?

Hey Roy,

What external apps have you tried so far? I’m trying to solve a similar problem. Also out of curiosity at what price would the external option make sense for you?
