No Jitter Roll: LogMeIn’s Marketplace, Exec Appointments, More
In this week’s No Jitter Roll, we share the latest on a series of integrations, a cloud PBX offering, a video conferencing solution, a contact center partnership, and the latest executive appointments.
LogMeIn Goes to the Marketplace, Boosts Integrations
LogMeIn this week revealed GoTo Marketplace and a series of new integrations for its GoTo suite of UC and collaboration products.
The GoTo Marketplace will feature a range of applications that integrate with the GoTo suite, including GoToMeeting, GoToWebinar, Jive, and GoToConnect, LogMeIn said. The integrations include:
- Salesforce Lightning for Jive/GoToConnect – Currently in beta, the integration lets Jive Voice and GoToConnect users click to call straight from Salesforce and provides automatic call logging and daily call tracking capabilities.
- Salesforce Lightning for GoToMeeting – Similarly, users can launch GoToMeeting straight from Salesforce.
- Theta Lake for GoToMeeting – With this integration, GoToMeeting users can record and archive video meetings.
- Zoho for Jive/GoToConnect – The integration provides click-to-call dialing, call logging, and automatic routing for sales organizations and also works with GoToMeeting and GoToWebinar, Prezi for GoToWebinar – GoToWebinar users can share visuals directly into webinars, as opposed to screen sharing, via Prezi capabilities.
- Clio for Jive/GoToConnect – For legal practices, this integration allows GoToConnect users to receive Clio alerts when a client is calling and tracks time to ensure accurate billing.
