in this episode of My TechDecisions Podcast, Associate Editor Zachary Comeau talks to Mark Strassman, senior vice president and general manager of unified communications and collaboration at LogMeIn, about the company’s new rooms-as-a-service offering.
The program, GoToRoom, was launched last year and featured hardware and software packages that provide videoconferencing and conference room technologies at a monthly price rather than a large up-front cost.
The kits –which include a full equipment warranty for the length of the contract – start at $99 per month plus the cost of a GoToRoom license. Customers will own the equipment at the end of the term.
GoToRoom already featured Dolby Voice Room, Poly Studio and Poly Trio 8500 +Eagle Eye 4, but new equipment includes:
In addition to the previously available Dolby Voice Room, Poly Studio and Poly Trio 8500 +Eagle Eye 4, new equipment includes:
- Dolby Voice Huddle
- Dolby Voice Pro
- Logitech MeetUp
- Logitech Rally
- Logitech Rally Plus
- Poly Studio X30
- Poly Studio X50
- Extron IP Link Pro control processor and TouchLink Pro touchpanel (for expanded boardroom customization) and DMP Plus.
GoToRoom’s new hardware packages continue the trend of videoconferencing providers partnering with hardware companies on all-in-one packages marketed directly to end users via an as-a-service plan.
Other notable examples include Zoom’s newly announced Hardware-as-a-Service offering, Google’s Meet hardware kits and hardware offerings from Cisco’s Webex.
