GoTo, the Boston-based IT management, support and business communication provider announced a new virtual whiteboard integration with Miro. The integration is now available for meetings & training sessions in the GoTo application, making real-time collaboration simple for a virtual or hybrid workforce, says GoTo. Miro is available for GoTo Connect, GoTo Meeting, and GoTo Training customers.
This integration comes as businesses continue to navigate demand for hybrid and remote operations. According to a report from Gallup, there are an estimated 70+ million U.S. workers who can do their job remotely, with about 75% of remote-capable workers projected to be hybrid or fully remote in the long-term.
“At GoTo, what matters to us most is meeting the needs of our customers,” says Damon Covey, head of product at GoTo. “As hybrid and remote work remain a staple in our workforce, we need to ensure that effective collaboration can occur with the same ease as in the office, regardless of where employees choose to get work done. With our new Miro integration, GoTo enables businesses to maintain a high level of productivity through visual whiteboard collaboration from anywhere.”
The integration of Miro into GoTo’s application will allow businesses to:
- Collaborate on a Miro board from within the GoTo app: Miro is integrated directly into GoTo’s communications products, users can access their boards without leaving their meetings or training session.
- Perfect for any team, for any use case, from anywhere: GoTo users can now drive better engagement across all teams by unlocking more efficient brainstorming, diagramming, journey mapping, and more.
- Top tools to support visual collaboration: Access sticky notes, mind maps, timeline builders, code blocks, charts, tables, and other creative tools to drive real-time collaboration with colleagues and customers.
- Create a whiteboard without a Miro account: GoTo users who don’t have a Miro account can simply create a new blank board within GoTo, accessible for 24 hours. For those who want to save their whiteboard, sign-up for Miro is always free.
“Miro is deeply invested in creating new ways for teams to collaborate effectively in distributed, hybrid work environments. Our new integration with GoTo creates another method of seamless collaboration and makes it easier for teams to truly connect, learn, and grow together – all in one place,” said Kev Chung, head of partnerships and business development at Miro.
