Old thread so hopefully I'm not too late to the party...

Slack and HipChat get a lot of attention. Is the call quality better than Skype?

Our main tools for the past 7 years have been Skype for real-time communication, JIRA for questions/discussions/task management/feature requests/bug reporting, Confluence for documents, and SVN for source control.

I'm based in the Tokyo office. We also have a Toronto office and dev partners in India. It's definitely been a challenge and, in my own experience, I would say there is no upside to it at all.
