Compare Bria with Ringotel

Main logo CounterPath Bria
Pricing Ringotel costs $2.49 per user/per month or $24.90 per user/per year, and you can register a single user on any number of desktop or mobile devices. Bria’s costs $50 per user/per year for the Basic Bundle, which does not include messaging, presence and shared directory. For the Business Bundle license, you have to pay $120 per user/per year.
Messaging Rich messaging features, like personal and group chats, files and media sharing, video calls, advanced filters and more out-of-the-box. Messaging features are included only in the much more expensive bundle while providing fewer capabilities.
Synchronization Real-time synchronization of calls, chats and contacts between all users devices. Calls and chats are not synchronized between the mobile and desktop apps, while shared contact list available only in the much more expensive bundle.
Security Integrated VoIP tunnel encrypts all communication from/to the Ringotel clients and forward calls to your PBX server from a single IP address – no need to use VPN or SBC solution to protect your infrastructure. To provide secure connectivity for remote workers, you generally need to implement VPN solution for each remote user or deploy SBC which could be highly complex and expensive.
On-premise deployment For mission-critical systems or for compliance with the data protection policies, Ringotel backend can be deployed within your corporate network, to have complete control over the data. CounterPath does not provide on-premise deployment option for Bria solution.
