Bitrix24 is a business communication tool that provides companies with a centralized workspace. Users can setup a social intranet that allows employees and team members to interact without making conversations public. Activity streams are available so users can see updates and changes made each week, day or hour. Users can customize their individual activity stream to make it more effective. Task lists are built in and can be viewed from the activity stream along with photographs. Team members can also use a “like” feature, much like the similar feature on Facebook. Project management tools are also available, such as Gantt charts, task reports and work groups. Users can also upload and share documents, which can also be “liked” by team members.Show more screenshots »
Bitrix24 was created to provide companies with a simple, effective way to manage employees and interactions. The service comes with a number of attractive features that have drawn in a number of users. That being said, Bitrix24 hasn’t been mentioned in many places. A few blogs and websites have reviewed the application, but it otherwise goes mostly unmentioned. There are numerous alternative solutions out there that may be taking some of the spotlight away from Bitrix24.
Bitrix24 offers a little bit of everything. The user can manage team member interactions, projects and documents in one online location. Conversations can be kept off of the more popular social networks so content stays secure and private. The application lets users interact through instant messages or check for updates on activity streams. A “like” feature is included and makes a nice addition that most applications don’t include. Of course some professionals may see no need for a “like” feature, but having one available doesn’t hurt, either.
Bitrix24 mingles comfortably in the land of neat and tidy. The application stays very professional throughout while incorporating a few hints of vibrant color to give its interface a little flavor. Each feature is easy to understand, making navigation as simple as it can be. Most users will have no trouble migrating to Bitrix24’s system thanks to its user friendly design. The application manages to make the experience pleasant without detracting from functionality.
