The awesome integration which is HipChat and PredictHQ

Why HipChat?

We are huge fans of Atlassian, their community of users and how they develop amazing products to help teams around the world build what’s next. One of these products is called HipChat which is “Group and private chat, file sharing, and integrations”. Essentially it creates permanent or temporary rooms for projects, teams, clients or in our case global events for the appropriate people to collaborate on.

HipChat also offer many useful integrations from a developer’s essential API and monitoring platform Runscope, right through to a marketer’s go-to email platform Mailchimp. And now PredictHQ, the leading provider of global event intelligence (if we do say so ourselves). If your team needs to stay ahead of the curve and love using HipChat then our latest integration is for you.

Whether you’re planning a major deployment and need to avoid events that could impact your release date or you are part of a global marketing team that needs to plan out their promotional activity in different markets, event visibility is crucial. So combining the power of both HipChat and the PredictHQ Web App was a natural progression into awesomeness.

Tip: Project alerts are generally more personal than others, so consider not sending this activity into public rooms.
