āA large portion of workforce is now mobile. The BYOD crowd wants full access to their company intranet and collaboration tools from their mobile devices,ā said Dmitry Valyanov, President of Bitrix, Inc. āLast year, it became clear that people wanted an app that would function as a fully functional mobile intranet portal and does not require access to PC. It took us a year and a half of continuous work and improvements, but we finally did it and we did it right. Bitrix24 is currently the fourth most popular mobile intranet solution, only behind billion dollar companies like Yammer, Salesforce and Citrix, according to GooglePlay statisticsĀ».
Bitrix24 is a new generation of mobile intranet portal known as enterprise social network. It combines the looks and mechanics of social networking, such as liking and following, which increases employee engagement, with traditional intranet portal features, such asĀ searchable company employee directory, activity stream, tasks, calendars, file sharing, workgroups,Ā instant messaging, group chatĀ and evenĀ CRM.
āMobile intranet is becoming increasingly important to many companies, large and small. Studies show that most mobile messages are viewed within 4 minutes, where as with e-mails itās up to 48 hours. Mobile means fast, and time is money. Thatās also the reason we packed a fully functional mobile CRM inside our intranet portal, because people want to be able to add new contacts or edit data in their CRM right on the spot, - added Mr. Valyanov.Ā»
Bitrix24 uses push notifications to alert intranet users when they receive a new message.Ā Tasks and calendar eventsĀ can be accessed and created directly from the Bitrix24 app, while file access allows viewing personal or shared documents stored on the company intranet. Importantly, in addition to being available as a cloud service, Bitrix24 mobile intranet can beĀ hosted on a company serverfor added security.
āMost businesses suffer from āapp-fatigueā. People may be usingĀ Dropbox for file sharing, Google Calendars for shared calendars, WhatsApp for group messages, Outlook for contact management and RememberTheMilk as their to-do list. Not only do these apps not ātalkā to each other, some iOS apps arenāt available for Android and vice versa. The Bitrix24 intranet portal is essentially an one-stop solution with all communication and collaboration tools that typical business uses equally efficiently inside the office and out. Itās your office outside your office.ā
The Bitrix24 mobile intranet portal is available as a freemium cloud service ($99 and $199 monthly plans allow unlimited users) or as server hosted software (starting at $2299 for a lifetime license).
