The LogMeIn Pro team is excited to share a few updates that have been implemented to improve the experience for our loyal users. These are just some of the things resulting from of our continuous efforts to keep users connected and productive anywhere they go.

1. Get to your remote session faster

The desktop and web version of the LogMeIn client will be combined to create one seamless experience. Now, regardless if you access LogMeIn Pro via the web or desktop app, it will offer all functionalities (locally stored and encrypted passwords and faster access) and can be started in a standalone way by double-clicking the icon or on demand via the browser. The Desktop App will simply open the app or offer a download to your computer so you can get to you remote sessions faster than ever.

3. File Manager has a new Simplified Toolbar

The File Manager toolbar is now easier to use than ever. We’ve cut the number of buttons in half, making the actions each button will perform easily recognizable. Now users can move files faster and more efficiently. In addition, instead of being brought to the C: drive each time you access the File Manager, you’ll go directly to your user profile.

That means fast, easy access to your documents. File Manager will also remember the last place you left off and bring you directly to that folder the next time you log in.

4. Coming soon: Multi-Monitor Support!

For that reason we’re updating LogMeIn Pro to easily configure real multi-monitor support so you can enjoy multiple remote monitors displayed 1:1 on your own monitor screens simultaneously without having to switch over.

Introducing the New Central

We’re rolling out new versions of our LogMeIn Central product line, each designed to deliver unique value to our IT customers, while making it far easier for each and every Central customer to get the right product – and the right capabilities – to meet their specific needs.

What’s new?

Starting this week, there will be three new versions of Central: Central Basic, Central Plus and Central Premier. The foundation of this simplified and improved offering is our signature remote access capabilities, including even faster remote access, some great new features to help better organize large groups of computers, new options to further secure access to your computers with two-factor authentication, as well as mobile and desktop app enhancements. And if that is all you are using today, then the Basic version will likely be a perfect fit.  For those customers who are using Central to empower remote workers, Central Plus offers state-of-the-art remote productivity capabilities like remote printing, multi-monitor support, and file transfer capabilities across ALL computers in an account. Designed for business-critical IT management and automation, Central Premier  delivers  advanced alerts and monitoring, One2Many automated tasks (and scripts), simplified Windows updates, reporting, self-healing alerts (including new mobile alerts), and new premium customer support.

When will this be available?

The new versions of Central are being rolled out over the next few weeks to ALL current Central customers. So if you’re a Central customer, you will soon experience the new version of the product that best meets your needs – and you’ll get this new version for the remainder of your current subscription at no additional cost.  Customers can also choose to gain access to other versions immediately, should they choose, by contacting their account manager.

How will this impact pricing?

The new versions of Central should not only simplify how a customer chooses desired capabilities, but also how they purchase – and scale – their Central account to meet their specific organizational needs. In other words, the pricing has been created to best pair needs with value. One of the biggest changes with this move is the elimination of purchasing individual seats of LogMeIn Pro (for host computers) separate from Central. Pricing will be set simply based on the capabilities you use which translates into which version you need and the number of remote computers you’d like to remotely manage, access or support. For some customers, this will mean not only a more simplified purchasing, but an absolute reduction in total costs.  For others, it will provide a much better way to simplify payment for the value they expect and count on with Central.

Please note, that unless you choose to upgrade prior to the end of your current subscription, pricing won’t change until the time of your Central renewal.  To make the transition as smooth and seamless as possible you will  be notified 30-days in advance of your renewal.  We’ll provide you specific pricing information and details on the product you’ll have post renewal.

When and where can I learn more?

Once your Central account has been updated, you’ll experience the new features first hand We’re also carving out space in our community site, dedicated specifically to the new Central, where product specialists are happy to share more and answer any questions you may have. And in the coming days and weeks, we’ll be posting a whole new series on the Central blog featuring product demos, deep dives on new features, as well as tips & tricks that will help you get the most value out of your Central product.  So subscribe to the blog, check out the community, and keep a look out for the new Central update in your account.

         

For a Happy New Year, Go Back to Basics

fireworks

Happy New Year from join.me! To help sales professionals kick off the New Year right, we took a look back at all the research we’ve done in 2014 to compile some quick lessons. We found that much of our data and analysis over the past year supported some age-old lessons of selling. So while it’s a new year, continue to stick to these basics, and you’ll find success.

1)    Be on Time. Talk about basics! But there are true, measurable business implications to starting meetings a few minutes behind schedule. This year, 68% of senior executives reported to us that 95% of their meetings start late. These late starts add up to over 5 days of wasted time per year, and for a midsize organization, that adds up to over $5 million dollars in lost revenue. Consider that figure next time you take a few minutes getting a sales call up and running – how much money are you wasting?

2)    Collaboration = Success! In an ever-changing mobile and global workforce, sales leaders need to keep team collaboration a top priority. According to leadership effectiveness expert Jaclyn Kostner, workforce teams that collaborate the most often are 36% more productive than teams with less collaboration (video). Encouraging regular or impromptu ‘meeting of the minds’ within your sales teams can lead to new innovation, creativity, and solutions to problems you may not have even known about.

3)    Don’t let Tech Get in the Way. Frustrations with technology have been a part of the working world since… well, since ever. We did a study with InfoWorld on the most frustrating tech pain points for sales teams, specifically the many issues of legacy virtual meeting tools. The majority of business and IT execs agreed that new, cloud-based tools can enable an increase in frequency and number of prospect and customer meetings, among other benefits. So, don’t let cumbersome, legacy solutions stop you from maximizing your success and productivity.

4)    Stay on your Toes – Always. In this current sales atmosphere, you can close a deal anytime and from anywhere, even in just a few minutes.  According to our 2014 research report with conducted by Ovum, 35% of all meetings are unplanned and ad hoc, with 40% of respondents saying their personal ad hoc meeting behavior is increasing. As this trend continues next year, sales teams need to constantly stay up-to-date on what’s happening with their current customers and prospects. Preparation for impromptu meetings can make all the difference.
