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!

Brosix allows for companies to save money on travel costs while still ensuring a high level of effective communication.

With the economy still looking to recover and many companies on their financial heels, the ability to save money is more important than ever before. Brosix, an enterprise instant messenger, is helping companies all over the world cut back on travel expenses without hindering their ability to effectively communicate.

Brosix allows employees to communicate with each other through a variety of features, including both voice and video chat in addition to more traditional text based messages.

The company is also proud to announce the pending release of its newest feature, persistent chat rooms. This allows users to communicate with large groups of people in a chat room environment.

Brosix CEO Stefan Chekanov has seen first hand how companies of all sizes have been able to save money by using an instant messenger instead of traveling to meet clients and coworkers in person:

“We have clients that have saved thousands of dollars thus far in 2013 thanks to the use of an instant messenger. Using an IM is not a total replacement for meeting and communicating in person, however, it is something that many companies are considering.”

With more than 10,000 corporate customers in over 70 countries worldwide, the savings will continue to add up in 2014 and beyond.
“Our network of users continues to grow exponentially, and looking forward to 2014 we are hoping that an even bigger number of companies will find a way to us Brosix as a means of saving money on travel costs,” added Chekanov.

Brosix is adding a new chat room feature to its award winning enterprise instant messenger by the end of 2013.

Brosix is set to release one of its newest features, persistent chat rooms, to users by the end of the year.

This feature will add to an already long list that allows users to more effectively and efficiently communicate within a corporate environment. The premise for persistent chat rooms has been developed, and the Brosix team is currently working on integration. This feature will include the following:

  • Every user has the ability to create a chat room and invite others
  • The chat room is constant, meaning that users can go offline and when they get back the chat room will still be available
  • Every user has the ability to leave the chat room at any time
  • Users can be offline and if someone sends a message in the chat room, that user will receive it when they come online

In addition to these features, companies will have the ability to control the chat rooms in which employees participate.

Brosix CEO Stefan Chekanov is excited about what this feature will offer companies of all sizes:
“Many of our customers enjoy communicating with their team in small or large groups. With this new chat room feature, it will be easier than ever for groups of employees to get in touch and stay in touch.”

The use of chat rooms is nothing new for Brosix users, however, this feature is going to take the experience to the next level.
