BOSTON, April 24, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LogMeIn, Inc. (Nasdaq:LOGM) today announced a new enterprise version of its popular online meeting app, join.me, to meet the rapidly growing demand for broader business adoption of the ultra-fast, intuitive, collaboration tool. The new enterprise version, which introduces easy ways to manage, customize and deploy join.me, is designed to help companies quickly adopt a collaboration tool already beloved and relied upon by millions of professionals worldwide – and in many cases already in wide-ranging use by their own employees. As a result, IT pros and team leaders can help boost collaboration and productivity by formally embracing an online meeting tool that in many cases already has their employees' vote of confidence.
While IT has long been the key provider of workplace collaboration tools, the rise of low-cost and freemium cloud apps has led to an era where employees are increasingly taking matters into their own hands and bringing their own preferred apps into the workplace. Few apps have come to personify this bring-your-own-app (BYOA) trend more than join.me.
One of the fastest growing collaboration offerings on the market, join.me is used by tens of millions of people and attracts more than one million first-time users every month. There were more than 27 million join.me meetings last year, alone. And this viral adoption has quickly led to strong demand within businesses, with sales of join.me pro, the app's premium version, growing by greater than 100 percent year-over-year.
Bringing together LogMeIn's deep IT expertise and its experience building simple, yet dynamic, apps, the new enterprise version of join.me offers a variety of management features designed for larger teams and those responsible for empowering them, including:
- Support for deployments of more than 25 users
- Single Sign On (SSO) support via ADFS Integration and Active Directory Sync

- One-tap audio conference host for iPhone (pro & enterprise)
"The viral adoption of join.me in businesses has led to larger and larger opportunities for us and new types of requirements from our rapidly growing customer base," said Lou Orfanos, LogMeIn's Vice President of Collaboration Products. "With join.me, we're focused on delivering ongoing innovation designed for an era dominated by employee preference. join.me enterprise is an example of how we can help companies strike a balance between their business needs and the simplicity, speed and elegance that their employees crave."
