It’s a monumental day here at LogMeIn! Less than a year after the acquisition of Jive Communications, we now have all the pieces in place to truly enter in to the Unified Communications & Collaboration (UCC) space, and we’re going big!
Today we announced a unified UCC brand, bringing together LogMeIn’s leading Communications & Collaboration products under a single, market-leading, portfolio brand – GoTo. With that new brand comes a unified experience for the end user, allowing them to call, meet, text, chat and more all from one application – GoToConnect. We are also introducing a brand-new room system for meetings in huddle and conference rooms – GoToRoom.
The best part is all of this is now available from a global unified solution provider. Business leaders and IT buyers can work with a single partner, LogMeIn, to solve all their Unified Communications & Collaboration needs from meetings, to voice, to rooms and webinars.
Check out all the details below for more information:
A New Portfolio Brand
We’ve been hearing from our users and IT leaders that they want and all-in-one cloud-based communications and collaboration solution. We know that businesses can reap the benefits of consolidating their standalone solutions for better cost control, enhanced management and security, and a more efficient end-user experience. And we aren’t alone, In fact, a report from Frost & Sullivan shows that 68 percent of UCaaS buyers prefer all-inclusive bundles.
The first step in this direction is to unite all our products from GoToMeeting, GoToWebinar, Jive, Grasshopper and more under one portfolio brand. It’s no surprise we decided to call this brand, GoTo. It’s a name people recognize and trust. With over 28 million users and nearly 20 billion voice minutes per year, the GoTo brand brings together best-in-class meetings, rooms, voice and webinars to meet these needs.
New GoTo Products
Among the first new products in the GoTo UCC brand, GoToConnect offers customers powerful audio, video and screensharing capabilities combined with cloud-based telephony in one integrated simple user experience. GoToConnect brings together the power and reliability of GoToMeeting and Jive for professional web, audio and video conferencing, presence, VoIP calling, SMS/text messaging, visual voicemail and more in one application.
It’s a fully-integrated application for workers to easily connect and communicate — internally and externally — via a web browser or a downloadable desktop app.
For all the reasons we stated above, an all-in-one solution is what the market is demanding. GoToConnect allows users to seamlessly switch between different modes of communication in one easy to manage app that’s the most intuitive in the meetings and UCC market. And we are offering all of this at an extremely competitive price point.
GoToConnect will be generally available in just a few weeks in early April.
In today’s workplace, collaboration can happen anywhere and everywhere. Decisions are made in line for lunch or at the coffee maker. Meetings are held from home or at a coffee shop or on the morning commute. Collaboration needs to be fluid as the boundaries between work and life become more intertwined. More and more knowledge workers are realizing that small group sessions are where work gets done and more often then not – not everyone is in the same spot at the same time. Increasingly, this is forcing organizations to look at how to enable collaboration anywhere and everywhere. In 2018, Frost and Sullivan reported that in a survey of 2,000 IT decision makers about half had deployed huddle rooms with another 30% planning on doing so in the next year.
GoToRoom is a new, redesigned room experience for GoToMeeting. Customers can take the complicated out of how to outfit their conference rooms by ordering our bundled hardware and software offering which support out of the box video conferencing. You’ll go from unboxing your GoToRoom to your first meeting in just a few minutes – it’s truly frictionless. We have several configurations depending on the customer’s room configuration – a huddle room, medium room, and extensibility for longer tables in that medium conference room. But it’s not just new hardware…we’ve got a fresh, intuitive user experience that makes conducting your meetings easier, so you can forget about the technology and just kick some business!
Our solution is more turn key, easier to use and more cost effective. Plus, there is no need for IT to buy hardware through third parties or research how to outfit their rooms. This is out of the box meaning less headaches! GoToRoom is available now.
LogMeIn is constantly striving to simplify how people interact with each other and the world. With the release of the new GoTo brand along with GoToConnect and GoToRoom, LogMeIn is doing just that: simplifying and driving increased productivity and collaboration for businesses of all sizes.
