Bitrix24, our latest AppAdvice Daily podcast sponsor, is in a very giving mood. Not only are they handing out 10GB of extra storage space for their social intranet service to each and every AppAdvice reader, but they're also offering the chance to win a one-year professional license! Bitrix24 is a social intranet service designed with businesses, both small and large, in mind. It allows you to do away with all of your separate cloud services like Basecamp, Dropbox, and SugarCRM by offering a unified space for all of your projects, tasks, contacts, files, and messages. To sign up for a free account, just head to Bitrix24.com and enter your email address. You'll be provided with a link to begin the setup process, which basically entails coming up with an account name and password. No credit card information is required, so you can put that wallet back in your pocket! The whole process takes about two minutes from start to finish. Once you're logged in, you'll be able to invite all of your employees to your social intranet. Everything that takes place within will be displayed on the main Activity Stream, so there's no need to go digging around. Want to post a message to the board, upload a file, create an event, or start a poll for your employees? No problem. It's all available in the task bar right across the top of your Activity Stream. The sidebar on the left allows you to dig in deep and see what has been added and created. The sidebar is also completely customizable, allowing you to rearrange and hide tools you won't be needing. Short tutorial videos are available when accessing each new area of your social intranet, so you should get the hang of things pretty quickly. There's even a Bitrix24 app for iPhone and iPad that allows you to manage and view all of the above while on the go. Of course, it's completely free. Without a pay wall or any other barriers, there's no reason not to give Bitrix24 a try. So what are you waiting for? Head to Bitrix24.com right now and get started. Don't forget to redeem your free 10GB of additional storage space (15GB total), either. You can do so by clicking the "I have a promo code" link in the lower right corner of the screen and entering the promo code "APPADVICE". It may take up to an hour for their system to reflect the storage space upgrade, so just be patient. Two other premium packages are available, Standard ($99 per month) and Professional ($199 per month), in case you need a little more from your social intranet. If that describes your current situation, you're in luck. We've teamed up with Bitrix24 to provide five lucky readers with a one-year professional license, which comes to $2,388 in savings!
