01.08.17. LogMeIn acquires chatbot and AI startup Nanorep. LogMeIn, the company that provides remote access app and new alternative CRM solution Bold360 (launched in June) has acquired for $45 million Nanorep, a startup that develops chatbots and other AI-based tools to help people navigate self-service apps. In essence, its platform helps anticipate what customers are trying to do when they’re on a website — say in a technical support or search situation — and reduces the number of steps needed to get there. It looks like all of Nanorep’s existing business will continue as its tech also gets integrated into Bold360.
08.06.15. LogMeIn acquired whiteboard app Zamurai. LogMeIn has bought a popular whiteboard app for the iPad - Zamurai to build out the features of its online collaboration and meeting app join.me. The app, which had won several distinctions in the productivity app category, appears to still be live in the app store, but it looks like that may not be the case for long: LogMeIn says that in the future the Zamurai name will go away and the technology, which has now been integrated into new versions of join.me’s apps for the iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch, will now be offered exclusively through join.me. The current Zamurai users will be offered a migration path with the product completely folded into join.me. In addition to whiteboarding, Zamurai was working on other technologies for real-time visual collaboration, and with the team all coming on to LogMeIn, it could point to further enhancements for join.me down the line.
05.09.14. LogMeIn acquires Meldium to improve remote control security. LogMeIn, the provider of remote PC management, is buying Meldium, the startup noted for its password management and single sign-on capabilities. Meldium aims to make it easier to grant and rescind a person’s rights to business apps and data, which in turn makes life easier for companies that hire interns, freelancers or contract employees. Meldium’s promise is that it lets an admin easily disable or delete corporate accounts of a given person without screwing with her personal accounts. LogMeIn plans to integrate it with LogMeIn’s offerings, which include Join Me, AppGuru, LogMeIn Central and LogMeIn Rescue. Meldium competes with companies like Okta and even Microsoft in some cases.
2013. Microsoft released Remote Desktop app for iOS and Android. When you working at office, you probably using desktop PC. And when you go out of the office, you probably take your iPad or Android-tablet. And, probably, sometimes you have problems because of that. For example, you forget to copy file to the tablet, or copied it, but it does not open on tablet. But what if you could remotely open your desktop screen on the tablet and work with it as if you are in the office? You could open all files, applications, and don't care about the differences of operating systems. This trick can be done by the Remote Desktop apps. Microsoft has just released such app for iOS and Android. Of course, some similar apps existed until now, but it's always nice to have the official version. Especially because it's free. Maybe it's a small compensation for those, that can't help waiting for MS Office version for the iPad and Android-tablets.
