Video Conferencing Company Fuze Buys LiveMinutes, Raises $20M To Expand Into Team Collaboration

Jun 29

 

San Francisco-based video conferencing company Fuze is expanding its platform with the acquisition of an online team collaboration platform, LiveMinutes.

 

With the addition, Fuze is no longer focused only on online meetings, but is now also rolling out a new product called Fuze Spaces which allows colleagues to chat, share and comment on files, organize projects, and more via a web-based dashboard. Progressive workplace strategies (like remote work and distributed workforces) have provided opportunities for companies like Fuze to develop innovative, virtual solutions to the challenges that naturally manifest while working with off-site colleagues or clients.

 

Fuze’s new acquisition of LiveMinutes will allow them to add to their meeting service both document and screen sharing capabilities as well.

Stegmeier Consulting’s Insight…

While many organizations are switching to physical collaborative environments, Fuze is ensuring virtual collaboration is also possible.

Stegmeier Consulting Group has seen clients first-hand struggle with implementing remote work strategies.  Often times the roadblocks that spring up come in the form of inadequate technological tools to handle the transition, resistance of employees to new ways of work, and middle-managers who are convinced they need to see and be within a close proximity of those they are responsible for.

On the technology side, Fuze certainly sounds like they are well experienced and positioned to provide clients with excellent collaborative software.  For help on the people side, contact Stegmeier Consulting Group.  Our consultants are familar with the resistance that comes naturally with change, and can provide a variety of services to engage them and help alleviate their concerns.
