Collaborative technology is shrinking the space between you and your remote workers, increasing productivity and boosting the efficiency of communication. If you have remote workers in your business or employees who frequently travel, one tool that should be on your radar is join.me.
join.me, LogMeIn, Inc.’s popular online meeting tool, makes having meetings so simple and seamless that you can literally join or start a meeting with a click of a button. This is why 90 percent of Fortune 500 companies use join.me and why it is a beloved and essential app used by small businesses.
join.me offers a range of benefits for small business owners, including:
- Collaborating with team members on projects
- Giving personal consultations to clients
- Training new employees
- Holding video seminars
- Showing presentations
“join.me is an absolute must in our business tool kit,” says Carolyn Crummey, Editor-in-Chief of Smart Hustle Magazine and owner of VirTasktic, a virtual assistant agency that works with entrepreneurs and small businesses. “We use join.me to connect our staff, which is located all across the world, in order to hold staff meetings and trainings. Unlike other online meeting software that we’ve tried, join.me is so simple to use and access. It takes all the work out of getting my teams together.”
Mobile Meetings Made Easy
join.me recently expanded their mobile options with an update to their iPhone app and a brand new app for the Apple Watch. These changes add unique add-ons to extend and boost your collaboration specifically on these devices.
With the new Apple Watch app and iPhone app join.me introduced the ‘One Touch Meeting’ technology. With this technology you can start a scheduled join.me meeting with the touch of a button, directly from your Apple Watch or iPhone. Just one touch and you are automatically entered into the meeting. Your phone then calls you and launches join.me on your desktop or device of choice. This eliminates any set up time and gets your meeting going, with both audio and visual, in mere seconds.
Need to start a meeting on the fly? No problem. The new app also allows you to trigger an ad hoc meeting by simply tapping the “start meeting” button on your device. And to ensure you never miss a meeting, the new app sends a push notification directly to your iPhone or Apple Watch when it’s time to meet.
Check out this quick video on all the great features of the new apps:

True Collaboration with Mobile Whiteboard
Knowing the importance of true team collaboration and the essential use of whiteboards in the process, join.me has also released a new mobile whiteboard for iPad that makes team brainstorming and collaboration easier than ever. Unlike many digital whiteboards that are difficult to use and share, the new mobile whiteboard from join.me incorporates capabilities and functionality of the highly acclaimed Zamurai mobile whiteboard app. Users are provided with an infinite canvas to draw, add shapes, lines and connectors, to convey ideas. Don’t like to draw? No worries. The app includes a custom icon library that you can pull images from, or simply upload your own images.
This new whiteboard feature has been fully integrated into the join.me iPad app and users can create and share up to four mobile whiteboards for free. Additional whiteboards are available for those who upgrade to a pro or enterprise subscription plan.
Here’s a quick video that showcases the mobile whiteboard features:
With the addition of these new tools to their already popular online meeting platform, join.me has taken team collaboration to a whole new level of simple and easy without the restrictions of being tied to specific device or location.
