Now that the holiday season is in the past and the new year started, it is time to reveal our plans for 2014.

First of all I wanted to express my excitement about the past 2013 – Brosix doubled the customers it serves all around the world. We are happy that so many people use our service.

During the year we have managed to deliver all the features we planned at the beginning of 2013. Just to mention some of the new things we delivered:

  • Spell-check and federation with other IM networks for our desktop clients
  • Web Guests feature for our Enterprise customers
  • Brosix storage is in place for several months already, serving our mobile users and ready to be employed in many new features
  • New features to our mobile apps: geo-location, send pictures and local chat history

 

In the next weeks and months we will focus our time and energy on:

    agenda-2014-2
  • Mobile development – The mobile hype is still storming the industry and we plan to add several features to Brosix mobile in 2014. We will start with user interface improvements to make the apps more convenient and will add conferencing with persistent chat rooms.
  • Persistent chat rooms – Chat rooms can be used for short-time and long-time discussions. Users will be able to create chat rooms that persist after they log out. They will be able to discuss themes while the others are offline and offline users will get the messages when get back.
  • Control Panel improvements for our Enterprise customers – We will add several new features and control options that will improve productivity in the teams.

We are excited to work on these new features and to see the growth of the service with many new happy customers. It is a great honor for us to offer the Brosix instant messaging service to so many people. Feel free to share your Brosix experience with us.

All these updates and changes will mean better, faster and smoother experience for users than ever before. The newest Brosix 3.6 update is available to download for Brosix Personal (FREE) users. Enterprise customers will get the update soon.

The following are some of the key highlights of Brosix 3.6:

Contacts List on Mac

  • It includes a much requested and awaited feature called “Persistent Chat Rooms” This enables users to log out from the chat rooms and still get offline messages. Users can see the messages once they get online. This allows users to stay in constant touch with friends and colleagues. It’s a great addition because it lets you catch up with the conversation at any time. You can now leave in between a project meeting if there’s an emergency situation and then get back online to catch up on the proceedings. It takes the experience to a whole new level.
  • Several bugs have been fixed and ironed out to make the experience better and faster. Tweaks to improve file transfer.
  • We have updated our themes collection so you can customize your most loved instant messenger. Changing the colors of the IM can be good thing to improve the appearance.

Our Improved & Refined Web Control Panel http://www.brosix.com/2013/12/our-improved-refined-web-control-panel/ http://www.brosix.com/2013/12/our-improved-refined-web-control-panel/#comments Mon, 09 Dec 2013 09:06:39 +0000 http://www.brosix.com/?p=4896 Our dev team has been hard at work to release a new web control panel for our enterprise customers, which was rolled out on 18th of last month.  It’s a part of our constant efforts to simplify and streamline experience for users. The web control panel is a centralized feature that gives IT administrators in an organization tremendous flexibility to manage users of the private IM network. Administrators can assign specific features to users, check activity logs, and more. It’s a powerful feature that  gives an overview of all the users on the IM network.

The following are some of the major changes to the new control panel:

  1. New and improved design to make it easier for our customers work with the panel
  2. Improved reporting
  3. Improved order process
  4. Improved license management

The new panel has been redesigned to achieve better usability and management of the IM network. Changes have been made under the hood as well to offer a rich experience for reporting, order processing, and license management.

There are various benefits of having a centralized control panel for your corporate IM network:small_97033289

  • Web control panels are useful for adding users or new employees to the network; administrators can either add the users or have the users add themselves through a simple web sign up interface.
  • Another benefit is the ability to have accounts or users with limited rights. For example, some users are granted access to text chat function or video call function and so on. Each function has a separate module which can be enabled or disable. Modules can be disabled or enabled for the entire network as well.
  • You can even create groups such as Marketing Department through the control panel and assign users to the group. The groups you define will be automatically shown in users contact lists. Monitoring and reporting is also made possible with the control panel.
  • Administrators can check specific user activity logs for a particular time period and report it to the higher ups if required.

These are just some of the benefits for using a control panel. Check all of them by logging in and using your new Brosix control panel. You don’t need to upgrade as your IM network has been automatically upgraded. Happy Brosixing!
