BOSTON, Oct. 01, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LogMeIn, Inc. (Nasdaq:LOGM) today announced the next major launch for its GoTo portfolio of Unified Communications and Collaboration (UCC) products with a completely new experience for GoToMeeting. The new GoToMeeting focuses on delivering a simple, intuitive end-user experience, while giving IT even more control over deployment, management, and security. The product includes a video-first meeting experience, industry-leading audio quality, a new meeting hub, powerful meeting diagnostics, and additional AI-powered transcription capabilities. These updates help to streamline collaboration with a faster, more modern look and feel that’s consistent across web browsers as well as desktop and mobile applications.
LogMeIn took a customer-first approach with the new GoToMeeting, listening to feedback from thousands of collaboration users to develop the product. LogMeIn’s GoTo portfolio delivers an intuitive experience for end-users while supporting the needs of IT leaders. According to recent research from Ovum, seven out of ten IT leaders are looking to invest in new collaboration technologies in 2020. The new GoToMeeting was built with IT leaders in mind to support a modern workforce working how, where, and when they want.
“The very nature of work is changing, and we wanted to create a new GoToMeeting that is simple, fast and intuitive for users, while also giving IT a collaboration platform that sets them up for the future. Today we are releasing the video conferencing experience of tomorrow to revolutionize the way people collaborate with the most modern solution available,” said Mark Strassman Senior Vice President and General Manager of Unified Communications and Collaboration at LogMeIn. “Through thousands of conversations and feedback from our customers, we reimagined the new GoToMeeting to deliver a delightful end-user experience, while also providing the security and reliability IT expects from a trusted communications and collaboration provider. We are excited to launch this new experience today to further drive GoTo’s leadership in the video meetings space.”
In this new release, GoToMeeting has launched a series of updates to improve the ease of the collaboration platform for IT and users before, during and after the meeting:
“With this new release of its UCC offering, LogMeIn has focused on items that matter to end-users – ease of use, faster join times, consistency across devices and platforms, and more,” said Ira M. Weinstein, founder and managing partner at Recon Research. “This is not a coat of paint on a legacy product. This is a new solution architected from the ground up to add value before, during, and after the meeting experience. In short - this is a big deal.”
The launch of the new GoToMeeting is just one of many announcements from the GoTo suite of UCC products. In recent months, the company has also announced that products from the GoTo portfolio have been named a Leader in the 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Meeting Solutions as well as a Challenger in the 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Unified Communications as a Service, Worldwide.
GoTo has also expanded GoToConnect and GoToRoom general availability internationally bringing the full GoTo suite to the UK, Ireland and Germany. Additionally, GoTo has made recent significant updates to its GoToRoom and mobile experiences with features like Room Launcher to start meetings in GoToRoom enabled rooms from the GoToMeeting mobile app along with Commuter Mode for a simplified experience on-the-go. Later this year, GoTo plans to continue international expansion in Australia.
