Business instant messaging has, in recent years, become an important part of how we interact in the workplace and is a popular alternative to traditional methods of communication like email and phone calls. While Skype (News - Alert) was, in the past, considered to be the best option for business instant messaging, managers are now finding that Brosix is the better way to go for business applications.
Brosix sports features such as its group management feature, one of the newest improvements to its control panel, which includes the ability to add contacts to multiple groups as well as making them available to different groups.
“Brosix implemented these new options in order to improve group management to become more flexible and convenient to use,” says Stefan Chekanov, CEO of Brosix, on the newest Brosix updates. “These new options will save a lot of time and effort for managers, especially when there is a need to assign group rights, user rights in particular groups and adding/removing users from groups.”
The focused approach of Brosix is in direct contrast with Microsoft's (News - Alert) new “Skype Everywhere” that it's been enacting since purchasing the company. Brosix's enterprise instant messaging features — such as the creation and management of private networks, file transfer, user activity logs, management of user contact lists and screen sharing — make the IM software a no-brainer when managers look to bring business instant messaging into their offices. What's more, Brosix is geared toward professional needs with a strong focus on productivity, privacy and security.
“It is essential that managers be able to communicate with employees with ease and efficiency. In today’s corporate environment, this means using an instant messaging application,” says Chekanov. “Skype alternatives are available to those who are more interested in business features and less interested in personal communication. “
The ability to create a private instant messaging network, in particular, allows managers to quickly and easily control which users are included in a conversation, ensuring privacy in efficient manner.
Brosix is available for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Android (News - Alert) and iOS.
