Bitrix24 is a valuable tool for companies of all sizes. It helps to organize information, create tasks, oversee project management, and more. With over 8 million companies already using and loving this software, it is clearly useful. One of the best benefits of using Bitrix24 is that it has a free version that is available to everyone.

How do you know which version is best for your company? And if you are already a user of the free version, how do you know when to upgrade to a paid account?
