LogMeIn has called for more channel and distribution partners to support the Australian launch of its unified communications and collaboration (UCC) product GoToConnect.
The product allows for users to share online audio, video and screens via web browser or a downloadable application.
It integrates technology from LogMeIn’s GoToMeeting and Jive cloud VoIP systems, allowing for web, audio and video conferencing, VoIP calling, text messaging, and visual voicemail.
The reasoning behind the call for more partners, according to Lindsay Brown, vice president of Asia Pacific at LogMeIn, stems from the company's need to expand its reach.
“In order to deliver our products - including the new GoToConnect UCaaS solution - to a wider range of Australian organisations, we need to scale our channel program and employ the depth and breadth of expertise of more partners across the country," Brown said.
"Our solutions are ideal for organisations of all sizes, and they integrate into a wide range of business technologies and systems – all of which points to the importance of partners in helping us deliver this vision.”
The call for more channel and distribution partners follows LogMeIn’s appointments of Yvette McEnearney as regional head of unified communications and collaboration, and Mark Harvey as the unit’s channel boss.
They were appointed as then channel chief Robert Findlay exited the vendor.
The upcoming Australian release of GoToConnect will be the fourth market the product is available in, following launches in the US, Latin America and Europe.
In addition to GoToConnect, LogMeIn’s UCC portfolio also includes the products GoToMeeting and GoToWebinar and supports over 28 million users a month with nearly 20 billion voice minutes per year.
