Free Unified Communications Servers And Software

Just a few years ago unified communication (UC) platforms were limited to large corporations – they were expensive, would typically take months to implement and, frankly, were of little value to small businesses. Bitrix24 is world’s first free online unified communications solution that’s been created specifically for small organizations. 

The list of unified communications tools in Bitrix24 includes: 
  1. Private social network
  2. Intranet
  3. Extranet
  4. Instant messaging and group chat
  5. Mobile communications
  6. E-mail connectors for employees
  7. E-mail marketing for clients
  8. Telephone calls
  9. Videoconferencing
The idea behind Bitrix24 UC platform is brainlessly simple. Every day you work with e-mail, use your mobile phone, send and receive instant messages, talk to your employees and customers – so why not keep all your communications in one place? This is exactly what Bitrix24 does. 

However communication tools alone are not enough for effective collaboration in small organizations, so Bitrix24 also comes with file sharing,document managementworkgroup calendarsCRMtasks and projects

In addition to being free for up to 12 users, Bitrix24 offers other advantages. For example, the self-hosted version of Bitrix24 comes with API and source code, so you can modify your UC platform and integrated with other tools and you see fit, something that most unified communications vendors don’t offer.
