In Bitrix24, people are the center of attention. In the employee directory, you can easily find contact information or filter the list to find the right person for your inquiry. Clicking on an employee in the list navigates to the profile page of that employee. All public information about the employee is visible and there are options to initiate an instant message or leave a comment in the person's blog or photo gallery.
Aside from being a popular and convenient tool inside the system, the employee directory allows export to Excel and synchronization with Outlook and CardDAV. Synchronize your contact list with your iPhone, iPad, or Android device and you'll always have the current contact data at your fingertips!
The Company Pulse helps improve adoption and engagement among users in your company. You can see an overview of activity in the intranet in the regular view, broken down by types of activities, such as IM, tasks, mobile device, etc. The Pulse gives insight concerning what tools are well-adopted and how users are implementing the intranet into their work routine. For administrators and supervisors, a set of pre-made explanatory messages can be sent out to employees via the Activity Stream to encourage adoption of various tools and general engagement.
Finding an employee in Bitrix24 does not even require touching the keyboard. The click-through company structure takes users straight to where they need to go, and there is also an alphabetical index. The list of employees may be filtered by position, and search can also be carried out by any part of the employee's name in this section or in the global search box.
The company structure represents the hierarchy of the organization with departments and sub-departments. You can open up a specific department and determine which employee is the one most relevant to the issue at hand.
Subordination in the structure influences many intranet functions: to whom reports are sent, who can delegate tasks to whom, etc. Department heads can see all the tasks of their subordinates.

You can choose to allow individual users and departments to access the service only from chosen IP addresses.

This functionality was specially designed for companies with multiple offices and branch locations which need to have a larger degree of autonomy.

Employees can get access to their company's intranet, the intranet of their department, and, depending on the settings, the intranets of other departments. *Available in self-hosted versions of Bitrix24.
