Collaboration. Whether you know it or not, you are constantly collaborating with your co-workers – that’s how work gets done (and sometimes not done). Every team is different, and every team needs a different kind of collaboration solution that works for them. There are many online tools for team collaboration out there, like note taking apps, sync and storage solutions, free screen sharing, meeting rooms for teams – the list goes on.
So you’ve been hearing about LogMeIn’s new service to secure and manage access from employee iPads, eh? Wondering what it is? Well, we can’t wait to tell you all about it! Right now, we’re taking the covers off our new service that blends Total Access with Total Control.
With LogMeIn Ignition you’ve long been able to access your actual desktop, and the applications, files and data that are important to you. This is Total Access.
Now we’re making sure that full access has a true place in our work organizations. We’ve added a set of management tools to LogMeIn Central designed to control that access – which computers and data can be accessed, by whom, and from what device. This is Total Control.
With this new service, you can:
Enroll individually owned and IT-procured iOS devices into an organization’s mobile inventory
Authorize individual iOS devices for remote access to one or more company computers, including access to corporate apps and files
Manage remote access rights and permissions by individual, computer, and/or mobile device
Control whether files can be remotely transferred from remote computers to individual mobile devices
Handle lost or stolen devices by remotely wiping stored credentials
We’re really excited about the services, and we’re showing a preview today. General availability will certainly follow later. If you’re interested in hearing and seeing more, why not head over to https://secure.logmein.com/accesscontrol and register!

No matter what you’re selling, having a great free sales tool like join.me in your back pocket will not only impress, but possibly close the deal. Here are three ways join.me can improve the sales experience and make the best use of your time.
1) Prepare properly. First impressions matter, and a well-delivered message is your best ammunition. Second best? How you deliver. join.me requires no registration for your viewers, so they are only a click away from what you have to say. Time is money (if you didn’t already know).
2) Get to the point. You’ve been there – waiting, waiting and waiting to download complicated technology just to get on the same page with someone else. With no viewer downloads, you can get to the point easily with join.me. Need some show and tell? Have them launch their own join.me session and show you their thoughts.
3) TTYL (Talk to you later). When the conversation ends, join.me is perfect for ad-hoc meetings and follow-up calls. Need to quickly check in? join.me. Want to go over the contract together? join.me. With an impressive ability to swoop in and save the day, join.me makes the sales cycle easier and more authentic. Sold!
