If you’re on the hunt for a free document management system for your team, look no further. Bitrix24’s simple and easy-to-use tool allows you to collaborate on documents and store them neatly and logically.
With unlimited free users and free cloud storage, you can run a test in your department right away and scale up to your entire company with no extra investment. And it’s not just an electronic document management system. Bitrix24 is an all-in-one business platform that gives you all kinds of new integrated tools spanning communication, HR, project management, and a CRM.
Bitrix24's free document management software lets you organize all the teams in your company in a clear, logical way. You can segment your documents into separate Bitrix24 Drives to keep things clear, ordered, and easy to use.
Launch one drive for your personal work, another for your team, and one more for the entire company. With multiple drives available, you can keep sensitive documents on a need-to-know basis while not overloading people with documents they don't need.
To save time and maintain accuracy, collaboration is a must have for any free document management software. Whether it’s for remote teams building a project together, a manager needing to approve a draft, or a last-minute dash that needs multiple brains at once, collaboration is key.
When you’re working on a document with others, you can see where your colleagues are as their name appears on the line they’re working on. Then you’ll see their words appearing in real time, just as they’ll see yours.
Multiple drives are one way of making sure only specific people can access your documents. But what happens if you want to give someone access to a drive, but keep certain documents within that drive off limits?
Set up access rights for those documents that have to be on a need-to-know basis. Perhaps you don’t want clients to see your inner workings, or maybe you want to make a company announcement that isn’t quite ready to go public. You can even use access rights to make a document read only and stop accidental changes from being made.
Don’t save endless versions of the same document and risk losing information (and your mind) as you sift through them all looking for the most current file.
With Bitrix24’s free document management system, you can clean up your drive by having one document that you build on, safe in the knowledge that if you need to see a past version, you can click on the revision history and get there in no time. You’ll be able to see details like the users who modified the file, the date changes were made, and the file size & name. If you need to get a past version back, just click restore previous version and there you have it.
It’s great to collaborate on your docs, but you need to discuss your ideas efficiently first. Bitrix24 enhances your free document management software with an array of internal communication tools.
Add communication into your workflow with a pre-project video meeting and a follow-up email. This is where you outline all your major targets and tasks. Then, when you and your team are working, you can talk to each other with quick-fire instant messaging. By setting standards with how you communicate, you can cut out misunderstandings and ensure your work goes smoothly.
With Bitrix24’s project management tools, you can set up workflows that save you a lot of the smaller repetitive tasks. When you’ve created your automations, when one task is completed, a notification is sent to the next task and employee in the workflow. You can even delay notifications to allow for a quick review of each task.
Fully integrated with your free document management software, our project management system keeps your files within one easily accessible system. That means that everybody involved in your workflow will have immediate access to the correct document alongside their task instructions.
If you’re already used to apps like Dropbox, Google Drive, or OneDrive, you can continue using those systems to work on your documents in Bitrix24. You can sync your documents which will be indexed and given default access rights without you lifting a finger. This syncing even allows you to see if you have a newer version in the external file storage account and make sure you’re up-to-date in both systems.
Another useful way of integrating your tools is to upload a version of your documents. When looking through your revision history, click the “upload version” button and upload your Microsoft Word or Google Doc file.
Get full flexibility with a mobile app to accompany your desktop document management software. When you’re on the go, you need to have quick access to write, modify, update, and review your documents. Bitrix24 comes with a fully functioning app for both iOS and Android that gives you and your team a vast amount of working options.
Just like on the app, Bitrix24 offers free document management software for Windows and for Mac. So when you’re searching for the best tool for you, stick to Bitrix24 and save yourself the stress of a more limited free document management system.
When you’ve got free document management software at the click of a button, there’s no reason not to get started right away. You can immediately start using your new tool regardless of the devices you use and we’re sure your entire team will love it too — after all, more than 9,000,000 companies have already made the switch to Bitrix24 for their business functions.
