Latest news about Bitrix24


2014. Bitrix24 launches inter-company social messenger



Social collaboration tool Bitrix24 is launching a new, free instant messenger called Bitrix24.Network, that enables communication and collaboration between users from different companies (think "Skype for business"). It allows users to create free collaboration workspaces with private and group chats, audio and video calls. File sharing, online document editing and other tools already available in Bitrix24 will be added to the network in the coming months. Besides, Bitrix24 added internal email server, powered by Yandex Mail. It allows to create mailboxes in domain @bitrix24.com (or your own domain) for each employee and add business mail to the portal menu.




2013. Bitrix24 adds VoIP-webphone, live CRM stream, collaborative folders



Bitrix24, the multi-functional social intranet service, is launching the new version. It allows to call customers right from the system web-interface using webRTC-softphone. The calls are registered in the customer profiles. Optionally, you can also store call records. Bitrix24 uses Zingaya as VoIP-provider and its VoIP fees are even lower than Skype. Before now Bitrix only allowed to make internal calls to collegues within company and use any other desktop IP telephony application (Skype, Lync, or other) for external calls. Second new feature is a separate activity-stream in CRM section. It allows to track deals, sales-person and customer activities in real time. Besides, Bitrix24 Drive (the app that allows to sync files between the local machine and intranet) added a new collaboration feature. Until now it allowed you to store all documents and files in the "cloud ", edit them offline and sync changes when you connect the Internet. Now this scenario works not only for files, but also for shared folders.


2012. Bitrix24 - the most pumped up Facebook for Enterprise on the market



Russian intranet portal maker 1C-Bitrix is taking on Chatter, Yammer, Socialcast and other social intranet services with its latest product Bitrix24. And this service is not just yet another "Facebook for Enterprise" clone. It's created in the unique style of 1C-Bitrix. In fact Bitrix24 looks like "Facebook for Enterprise" only at first glance - on the home page there is an activity stream where you can post messages and comments and see the latest actions in the system. But under the hood of this home page you will find the common (for 1C-Bitrix) set of million functions: tasks, file storage (with version control), calendar, photo galleries, instant messager, extranet, CRM, workflow builder, time tracker, profiles, reports, mobile version ... Of course, it's cool on the one hand. But on the other - too heavy for SaaS. And during the first real stress test (on the release day) the service experienced big problems with scalability. Of course, it's not a big issue in our time. 1C-Bitrix will spend some more money for backend and ensure the reliable performance of the service. Besides users will always have the "Plan B" - you can always transfer your data from Bitrix24 to locally-installed 1C-Bitrix Intranet. However, you'll need to purchase the licenses for a local version first. Bitrix24 provides a free version with a wide functionality for 12 users and 5GB of cloud storage. The paid version for unlimited users, 50GB and with extranet module costs $99/month. And the full version (100 GB) costs $199/month.
