Less than a year after the acquisition of Jive Communications, LogMeIn announces the release of a truly unified collaboration experience under one brand
BOSTON, March 14, 2019 – LogMeIn, Inc. (NASDAQ:LOGM) today announced that it has introduced a new brand, GoTo, for its award-winning Unified Communications & Collaboration (UCC) suite of solutions. Along with its flagship meeting and webinar solutions — GoToMeeting and GoToWebinar – the new product portfolio will feature the company’s first ever, truly integrated UCC solution, GoToConnect, as well as the just announced GoToRoom conference room solution.
The demand for all-in-one cloud-based communications and collaboration solutions is rising. More businesses are seeing the benefits of consolidating their standalone solutions for better cost control, enhanced management and security, and a more efficient end-user experience. In fact, a report from Frost & Sullivan shows that 68 percent of UCaaS buyers prefer all-inclusive bundles. LogMeIn’s UCC portfolio supports over 28 million users a month and nearly 20 billion voice minutes per year. Unifying this portfolio of solutions under a singular GoTo brand allows the company to bring together best-in-class meetings, rooms, voice and webinars to better meet the needs of the UCC customer.
“End users in an organization are demanding a single, simple, consumer experience for all their audio, video, and chat communications – whether on mobile, desk phone, desktop, or in-room. At the same time, IT leaders and business owners want a single deployment and management experience from a single partner that they can trust to help them manage their complex UCC needs,” said Mark Strassman, SVP and General Manager, UCC at LogMeIn. “Our new UCC solution is simple, elegant, intuitive and backed by a trusted global brand to meet the needs of business leaders and end-users. Today’s announcement brings the best of LogMeIn’s meetings, webinars, and room solutions, and integrates it with its award-winning cloud telephony and messaging solutions, all under one brand- GoTo.”
GoToConnect, the company’s first new product under the GoTo UCC brand, will be generally available in early April in North America and LATAM, with additional international availability expected later in 2019. GoToConnect will offer customers powerful audio, video and screensharing capabilities combined with cloud-based telephony in one seamless experience. GoToConnect is a fully-integrated application for workers to easily connect and communicate – both internally and externally – via a web browser or a downloadable desktop app. GoToConnect integrates the power and reliability of GoToMeeting and Jive to provide users with professional web, audio and video conferencing, presence, VoIP calling, SMS/text messaging, visual voicemail and more all in one application.
“GoToConnect is an all-inclusive UCC offering for businesses looking for a great cloud PBX/phone system, plus rich video conferencing and collaboration capabilities,” said Elka Popova, Vice President of Connected Work Research at Frost & Sullivan. “One of GoToConnect’s biggest benefits is its highly
competitive price, which allows businesses to boost user productivity with a complete UCC system while keeping spending under control.”
In addition to the introduction of LogMeIn’s new UCC brand, GoTo, and the first integrated UCC product, GoToConnect, the company today announced GoToRoom, a completely revamped conference room solution that turns any huddle or mid-sized conference room into a video-enabled collaborative meeting space.
