Startup Bitrix24 helps to build your own Social Intranet

The wild popularity of social networks comes from the fact that they solve a basic problem – ease of communication, in a way that is superior to previous options. The idea of putting this power of effective and fast forms of communication into a company’s daily operations was realized and hence, Bitrix24 was founded in April 2012!


Bitrix24 provides tools for task management, document sharing, and time tracking integrated into just this type of social interface for maximum efficiency of communications and work. You can use Bitrix24 in your office, or anywhere you like with the free mobile app!. With Bitrix24 you can create your own social intranet in minutes.

Essentially Bitrix24 is Yammer (social enterprise) plus BaseCamp (project management) plus Zoho (CRM) plus DropBox (file sharing and online doc management) and a few minor things (calendars, planners, work reports, gantt charts, etc). The service is 100% free to small companies (those with 12 employees or fewer).

You can start developing your intranet/extranet solution in-house using a trial package of Bitrix24 Self-Hosted version. It can be evaluated for 30 days, and during the evaluation period it is also possible to buy a license key and continue working with the product as a commercial customer without losing any data or wasting any time with a new product installation.

One of the interesting features we saw is the Activity Stream. An Activity Stream, just as ‘the wall’ in facebook, is a unified, interactive update feed where all the changes and new additions to the intranet can be seen. The Activity Stream covers all production, social, and mixed-function sections of the intranet. Each employee can stay aware of what is going on, contribute to discussions, and, importantly, choose what types of updates to display.

It also has the like buttons, instant messengers and photo galleries. In addition, it has a concept of badges. “Badges are a great motivational tool”, says Bitrix24 team. “They are used to show your appreciation towards your colleagues. Supervisors and management can give ‘awards’ visible to all or part of the company, or simply individually.” These badges show up in the Activity Stream and in the profile of the user.

Launched in April 2012 by Sergey Rizhikov in Alexandria, Bitrix24 already is the fastest growing social intranet for small businesses. In the coming future, it is believed that Bitrix24 will be counted among the leading enterprise solutions as well.

Bitrix24 is an initiative of Bitrix, Inc. (, a privately owned company, owned and managed by its founders. The Bitrix24 service is the final evolutionary stage of Bitrix Intranet and Extranet solutions (Bitrix Inc. products) and was launched as a beta cloud-based service in April, 2012. Bitrix takes pride in serving customers ranging from Fortune 500 companies to small organizations, including well-known enterprises like Xerox, Samsung, Volkswagen, KIA, Gazprom, Vogue and PC Magazine.
