How to configure Bitrix24 Sales Intelligence

How to configure Bitrix24 Sales Intelligence

track the efficiency of ad channels

The average B2B company spends 2-5% of their annual revenue on advertising, while B2C companies spend 5-10%. To bring that into perspective, if the yearly revenue of your company is 10 million dollars, you spend between 200 thousand to 1 million dollars on advertising - creating a website, running adverts on search engines, on social media and offline (billboards, flyers, posters).

When considered as a whole, these advertising efforts may “seem” to bring good results in the form of “leads”. 

We say “seem” because if you don’t have data to help you understand which advertising channels are effective and which are not, then, chances are that a huge chunk of your advertising and marketing budget is being wasted. In a recent survey by Rakuten Marketing, marketers admit to wasting 26% of their marketing budget on ineffective ads

With Bitrix24 Sales intelligence, you can track the effectiveness of all your advertising channels and sales managers, to maximize your advertising ROI.

This article is a guide on how to configure Bitrix24 Sales Intelligence by yourself.

Organizing Document Approval in Bitrix24 from Contractors’ Personal Accounts on website

Organizing Document Approval in Bitrix24 from Contractors’ Personal Accounts on website



EVRAZ is one of the largest vertically integrated steel companies in the world. The company actively uses external contractors to solve project and everyday tasks.

Once a contractor has been selected, they need to begin work. Incorporation into the project is an important and complex process. The key stage of incorporation is the approval of documentation for organization and implementation of work.

Previously, document approvals were carried out during private meetings between contractors and project coordinators. This approach led to delays in timelines, and the danger of postponing projects. It was an imperfect process

Our task was to develop a tool that would allow contractors who are registered on EVRAZ's website to initiate and organize approval of documents in EVRAZ's Bitrix24 quickly and conveniently without having access to the portal.

We helped EVRAZ move from personal document approval meetings to online document approvals. When a document is finally agreed upon, digital signatures are placed to make the contract legally binding.

Must Have Features In Your Bitrix24 CRM


One of the major challenges facing companies that transitioned online is how to deliver quality and personal customer service to their clients without face-to-face interaction. It’s true that technology can cause exponential growth to companies. However, business owners and leaders must also guard this important aspect of running a business. Fortunately, there are now a lot of CRM systems or customer relationship management systems available online.

What are the features and objectives of CRM tools? Its most basic definition is any technology in the form of a system or an app that aims to manage all your relationships and interactions with clients and potential customers. 

Today, over 87% of businesses use a cloud-based CRM. That’s because it enhances business relationships and operations by giving organizations a more streamlined way to interact with their leads and customers.

Case: Implementing "HR processes automation" for a large pharmaceutical company

Case: Implementing "HR processes automation" for a large pharmaceutical company


Having people in companies is not only very important, but also very expensive. Literally.

And we’re not even referring to wages and salaries. An organisation with a staff of 1-3 thousand people spends huge resources on recruiting, preparing, training, team building and organising the work of new employees.

According to data received from our clients, 1 office employee requires at least 30 hours of recruiters time to hire, and at least 50 hours of training to be effectively incorporated into work processes. This is the time of the HR department, managers, colleagues and the employee himself.

The constant complexities of personnel processes requires the HR department to be enhanced, but the full scope of HR work does not always seem clear to management. 

It becomes imperative to automate to make HR processes efficient.

Bitrix24 CRM and Billing Software integration

Bitrix24 CRM and Billing Software integration



Having a billing system helps a company keep track of the products and services its customers use, send bills and invoices, and also receive payment.
This feature is a necessity in every company, equally as important as having a CRM.

But with having multiple systems, also comes the task of maintaining customer records across all the systems
Employees have to enter customer data manually, repeatedly - a process that is very prone to errors.

Integrating your Billing system with your CRM not only rules out this error but also allows for the exchange of information in real time between the two systems.
