The Jive story began with a simple premise: make enterprise-grade communication easy, make it accessible to businesses of all sizes, and make it work the way modern workers do. Jive was born in the cloud. We grew up in an era where the workplace was defined by the worker, not the office. Our products were shaped by people who had cut their teeth in Software, Mobile and the Web. And our success story was built on our customers’ success, on how communication drove their business. Today, I’d like to officially welcome you to the next chapter in the Jive story, and our journey together as growing businesses.
Today, Jive and LogMeIn (Nasdaq: LOGM) formally joined forces as we closed an acquisition announced in February. The deal brings together the two great teams and technology behind Jive’s cutting-edge Unified Communications (UC) offerings and LogMeIn’s market leading collaboration portfolio, which includes the likes of GoToMeeting, GoToWebinar, and join.me.
So what does this mean for Jive and our customers?
The Jive products you’ve come to love and trust will remain key, individual parts of the LogMeIn portfolio, and they will continue to be built, sold and serviced by the same great people.
And these great products will now be complemented with the most modern, scalable and innovative Unified Communications and Collaboration (UCC) portfolio on the market today – a portfolio where best-in-class Unified Communications products are paired with best-in-class Collaboration products to serve even more of our customers’ most pressing needs.
The LogMeIn and Jive Difference
LogMeIn and Jive share a common philosophy. We both build frictionless experiences and easy to use products. We both build products designed to scale simply and securely as your business demand and needs grow. We both build products designed to work the way you do.
As part of the LogMeIn family, Jive gains significant scale, resources, and market insight needed to help accelerate innovation, introduce complementary best-in-class offerings, expand footprint into new markets, and deliver even greater quality of service. To put that in perspective, LogMeIn has 3500 employees in 20-plus offices across the globe, and its collaboration portfolio alone supports over 25 million users, seven million meetings, and over 900 million conferencing minutes each and every month.
And it’s this complementary combination that has us so excited about our future together – a shared opportunity to shape the ways modern workers communicate and collaborate to advance ideas, close business and get work done.
In the coming weeks and months we’ll be sharing more details on how these complementary offerings will come together to shape a truly unified portfolio, built and backed by the best team in the UCC market today.
In the meantime, welcome to the next chapter of the Jive and LogMeIn, and thank you for continued support.
All the best,
Senior Vice President
Jive Communications, Inc.
