Introducing the Quip Collaboration Platform
Built for the mobile, modern
workforce, the Quip Collaboration Platform includes:

document, removing the need to toggle between
multiple windows and apps to get work done. With
Live Apps, teams are empowered to add features
including Salesforce records, kanban boards,
partner-built apps and more to any Quip live
document, with a single click. Live Apps from
Salesforce introduced today include:

and drop cards between columns to organize team
work and keep projects moving forward.
