With millions of users and 100+% y/y growth, join.me represents our most popular and fastest growing product. Its speed and simplicity have quickly won over legions of fans across North America, the UK and ANZ. And this week, we’re taking some key steps to bring this same great experience to a global audience. We’ve just rolled out new French, Spanish, German, Italian, Dutch and Portuguese versions of join.me, as well as local language PC, Mac and mobile apps, while kicking off a significant marketing push in Europe and Latin America.
If you’re new to join.me or curious as to the drivers behind its success, the story — like the product — is pretty quick and easy. As workers ourselves, most of us would recognize the impact that mobile working – more broadly flexible working – has had on our meeting habits. It’s not just that more of our meetings are virtual — they are — but more importantly the volume and types of virtual meetings we’re all having are rapidly changing. Sure we still have formal, pre-scheduled boardroom-style meetings, but we’re also more frequently collaborating on-the fly with small groups or even 1-1. While most of the big web conferencing products were built to replicate formal, prearranged meetings, join.me was created with a completely different mindset – one that we believe is a better fit for today’s on-the-fly, impromptu meetings that very often blur physical and virtual lines.
This might be a big reason why there were 27 million join.me meetings in 2013, alone. But don’t take our word for it. If you’ve never tried join.me, or if you’re tired of meetings that consistently start 10-15 minutes late while everyone desperately tries to connect to the web conference, give it try…in English or Français or Deutsch or Português or Español or Nederlands or Italiano.
