New Look and Feel Plus Upgraded Project Management Capabilities Empower Teams to Get Work Done Faster
Nov. 9, 2015, Atlanta, GA – PGi, the world’s largest dedicated provider of collaboration software and services, today launched iMeet Central, its online team workspace and project management product.
iMeet Central provides centralized workspaces for internal and external teams to share and collaborate on files, manage projects, automate processes, review and approve creative assets and – with the click of a button – launch iMeet meetings. With robust reporting and administrative capabilities, cloud-based iMeet Central is easy to use and easy to implement without involving technical teams or IT resources. The new iMeet Central brand is being rolled out to the half a million users of Central Desktop, which PGi acquired in 2014.
“To drive results, teams need to be productive wherever and whenever they choose. iMeet Central delivers on this promise of anywhere, anytime work by removing all boundaries—including location and time—to collaboration,” said J. Scott Tapp, EVP Sales & Marketing, PGi. “We’re excited to welcome iMeet Central is an important addition to the iMeet portfolio.”
In addition to the new brand, iMeet Central has continued to evolve with new features designed to enhance the usability and extensibility of the product, including:
- Stronger project scheduling and file management. More granular calendar management and scheduling lets project managers tightly control projects and deadlines. The ability to attach and manage files directly within tasks improves context and speeds up the process. Additionally, proactive notifications around dependencies tee up resources sooner for the next step in a project to promote a more productive experience.
- New API enhancements to enable more integrations. Developers can now use the new JSON-based REST API to integrate with legacy systems or develop their own applications to accomplish tasks such as logging time data for enhanced client billing, kicking off projects and workspaces instantly and using callbacks to notify other applications of project status.
- Flexible, global cloud infrastructure provides better international access. By partnering with a leading cloud provider, iMeet Central can now leverage an even larger global footprint and physical infrastructure without sacrificing security or performance for clients outside of the US.
In addition to team workspaces and project management, PGi’s expanding iMeet portfolio of unified communications and collaboration (UC&C) products also includes all-in-one web, video and audio conferencing, webcasting, a smart calendar app and integration with all popular video room systems and endpoints. PGi recently launched iMeet Sales Accelerator to helps sales professionals prospect smarter and close deals faster with powerful video-narrated presentations.
For users that depend on Central Desktop, now iMeet Central, to get their daily work done, a full support guide is available online in the application help center. For more about iMeet Central, visit imeetcentral.com.
