Social Groupware

Bitrix24 is social groupware. This means that collaboration is built not around email but rather around social intranet, which acts as your private social network, where your group members can make posts, suggest ideas, leave comments and 'like' suggestions. You can create different user groups for work and play. And with so many people using Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and other social networks, you don't have to explain how social collaboration works.
