We’d like to update you about what’s going on with COVID-19, Bitrix24 and the current economic conditions. The situation the world finds itself in is very serious.

We’ve quickly moved from debating pros and cons of remote work to ‘switch to remote work or go out of business.’ Remote work is no longer debatable and Bitrix24 is in a unique situation of being able to help millions of organizations to keep working even as businesses everywhere are shutting down. This is why we’ve decided to make our free plan available to an unlimited number of users.

It is now abandonly clear that creating Bitrix24 as a COMPLETE suite of online work tools that enable remote collaboration has been the correct concept all along. Companies that allowed one department to use Trello for project management and others Asana or Basecamp are now struggling as there’s no single communication hub to run the entire company. Should everyone move to Trello? Or to Asana? Or Basecamp? Is there even a way to move from one to another?
