Enhanced with real time updates, video conferencing, online document editing, and a fully functional mobile CRM, Bitrix24 challenges top industry players with its new cloud intranet solution.

Many businesses yearn for a one stop solution where you don't have to worry about integration among different services or data ownership issues.

Bitrix, Inc. has released a new version of its popular free enterprise social network and collaboration suite for small businesses, Bitrix24 (http://www.bitrix24.com). The new release allows users to create, edit and collaborate on documents online, without the need for MS Office suite.

The new Bitrix24 instant messenger provides users with access to video conferencing and screen sharing capabilities for groups up to 4 people. Email connectors to Outlook, Gmail, iCloud and other popular e-mail services have been added as well.

"2013 has been a year of significant growth for us, - said Bitrix24 CEO Dmitry Valyanov, - we've had 90,000 company signups, which puts us well over 500,000 users for the cloud and the onsite versions of Bitrix24 intranet. A typical business uses the same set of tools – CRM, intranet, project management software, word processors, e-mail, video conferencing, human resources tools, and so on. The numbers prove that many businesses yearn for a one stop solution where you don't have to worry about integration among different services or data ownership issues."

Bitrix24's Activity Stream has been enhanced with real time updates, smart forwarding, notification settings and company-wide announcements, while a new engagement analytics module (Company Pulse) has been added to provide indicators for enterprise social network adoption, identify roadblocks and slow adopters, and show which intranet tools are currently being (under)used by employees.

Bitrix24 has also released a fully functional mobile CRM, which allows creation or editing of CRM entries and invoices directly from a mobile device. The new mobile app also allows use of multiple Bitrix24 accounts from a single smartphone or tablet.

"On good week, over ten thousand people download our mobile app, so it's certainly a critical part of our business, - added Mr. Valyanov. - GooglePlay now lists Bitrix24 among the top 5 mobile intranet apps, alongside or surpassing such established enterprise social brands as Jive Software, IBM Connection, VMWare SocialCast and TIBCO Tibbr. So we must be doing something right."

Bitrix24 is 100% free to any company or organization with up to 12 users. The paid cloud plans are priced at $99/mo (50 GB) and $199/mo (100 GB), and both come with unlimited users.
