By CIOReview | Monday, March 24, 2014

FREMONT, CA: Social intranet company Bitrix, has ventured into an arena of cloud storage and collaboration desktop application by releasing new apps for Windows and OS X, taking aim at some big brand players in the online space including Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive and Dropbox, informs Brian Jackson of ITBusiness.ca.

The requisite online storage space accessible through the web and mobile apps is a set of communication and collaboration tools proposed by Bitrix24.  It comes with varied features like document sharing, editing, and collaboration tools which is compatible to the users of other cloud storage services. In addition there is instant messaging, group chat, VoIP telephone calling, and video conferencing integrated into the application.

The distinct feature of Bitrix24 is it voids the exclusivity of choosing an application to access a document thereby allowing user an app of his choice for document access. The free, entry level option for Bitrix24 enables upto 12 employees to use 5GB of storage per month. It facilitates unlimited number of employees and external users to access 50GB of storage per month for $99 per month and all these plans come without the credit for VOIP calling and hence the user has to purchase it additionally. Bitrix24 offers free special offers for business schools.

The other services that Bitrix24 is expected to offer are updates to the mobile apps, itemized billing for telephony, call history, and further allowing users to choose their own outbound calling number.
