Best free collaboration software

Need totally free collaboration software? Available in cloud or on-premise with 35+ free collaboration tools, Bitrix24 lets you discuss ideas, share files, create workgroups, set team tasks, chat individually or in groups, hold videoconferences and do much more.

Bitrix24 is a versatile platform acting as an online office with intranet. There is a long list of tools and features that we provide, but in short - Bitrix24 helps your company to get things done from all perspectives. Task and project management tools will keep deadlines and workload for every user of an account. There are such options as responsible persons, roles, dates, time tracking, templates, checklists and so on. Tasks and projects are available in a format of Gantt charts or Kanban boards, plus classic lists sorted by the deadline, role and other aspects.

 

There are also other tools for successful company collaboration like document management or online storage. Users can work with documents online and offline, store them and share with others. Calendars are available in private, for groups or a whole company. Bitrix24 generally has very flexible access rights, so everyone can manage their activities according to who should work with, edit or even see them.

 

Another great section for collaboration is our communication features. There are chats, calls and videoconferences for up to 24 people. Have a chat with another user. Group chat for a project or working team. Need to discuss a  companywide problem? Another chat. You can find any user by name or in a company directory by the department. It is an automatic chart with company structure helping to see a company hierarchy (for employees) and manage access rights (for administrator and managers). In addition, external users with limited access can be added. It’s a great benefit when you work with partners or freelancers.

 

Bitrix24 is the best free collaboration software. It is available in the cloud and on-premise. There are Desktop and Mobile applications, but you can access your account online from any browser. Our free plan has 12 users. Paid plans also have a fixed number of users unlike other competitors, so we guarantee that your costs at the end of month will stay fixed. In addition, there is a 30-day trial of all premium features.
