Brosix, a leading instant messenger provider is integrating its system with Smarsh, well recognized archiving solution platform.

Brosix CEO Stefan Chekanov is excited about the integration, noting:

“The integration between Brosix and Smarsh will allow Brosix customers to conveniently and automatically transfer user activity logs for archiving by Smarsh. When it comes to convenience and security, there is no better solution.”

The number of participants in the Smarsh Developers Program is growing, with Brosix one of the early adopters. Through this integration, Brosix can provide customers with the archiving tools necessary to support their customer-driven needs.

The Smarsh Developers program, launching with a Content Ingestion API and SDK, will make it possible for Brosix users to keep a record of all communication, which is conveniently stored in a safe and easily accessible environment.

This integration is especially useful for users who want to archive communication from different providers – such as email, social media, and text messages – all in the same place.

“Partners can now promote their products to a broader market with a solution for archiving that eliminates compliance roadblocks. Customers have more flexibility in choosing the communication and collaboration tools they want, paired with the compliance and e-discovery functionality that they need,” said Steve Marsh, CEO and founder of Smarsh.

By choosing Smarsh as their archiving solution, Brosix can automatically and securely send all user activity logs to the user’s Smarsh account.

Now that the holiday season is already in our memories, and the new year started, it is time to set our goals for 2015.

First of all I wanted to share my excitement about the past 2014. That year was very successful for Brosix – we tripled the number of users we serve all around the world. We are so proud to be able to serve so many people.

During the year we delivered all the features we planned at the beginning of 2014. Just to mention some of them:

  • Persistent chat rooms
  • Mobile application upgrades to make them easier to be used
  • Control Panel improvements to give the customers more control over their networks

We also upgraded our infrastructure architecture in a way that allows us to grow the network.

 

In the next months we will focus our energy on:

    Plan
  • Mobile development – We plan to renew our mobile applications to make them even more comfortable.
  • New Chat Rooms – Brosix Chat Rooms is a great feature. When we started to plan it some years ago, we designed several types ot chat rooms. We have started with the most common chat room type. Now we will go next step and will implement the other chat room types, that will give more flexibility and control to our users.
  • Control Panel improvements for our Enterprise customers – We will add several new features and control options that will improve productivity in the teams.
