Fresh off a year in which we snagged some amazing industry awards, we are pleased to announce another momentous honor, with Fast Company recognizing Highfive as one of the World’s Most Innovative Companies in Enterprise for 2018.
Our team has been working tirelessly over the past year on updates, improvements and new features to fulfill our promise of making video conferencing insanely easy for every worker, in every organization. It feels truly amazing to be honored by the good folks at Fast Company for our recent achievements towards that goal.
For the last 10 years, Fast Company editors have scoured the globe to identify businesses at the forefront of their industries. More than being an industry leader, though, the Most Innovative Companies list seeks to honor the companies changing the way we think, connect and live. At Highfive, we believe our all-in-one, affordable communications solution has done that, keeping remote offices, teams and workers connected like never before.
Last year, we pioneered a shift to a WebRTC-powered platform with the release of our Join by Browser feature. To put it simply, Join by Browser allows users to join any video call directly just by clicking a link: no app to download, no pin codes, no passwords needed. WebRTC has also improved overall conferencing quality. The technology makes calls crisper and more reliable while consuming fewer network resources, battery, and bandwidth. With innovative updates like WebRTC and Join by Browser, we continue to enable high quality, reliable video communications for businesses everywhere, and just this last month we announced a bevy of new features and integrations.
But we’re not stopping there. Highfive is poised for another huge year as we expand our team, reach and lineup of industry-defining products and services. Earlier this year we also announced the addition of two new executives to our core team: Chief Financial Officer Celia Poon and Chief Revenue Officer Bobby Marhamat. We’ve been thrilled to have Celia and Bobby with us this year, especially since we recently raised our Series C funding and announced a new distribution deal with Dimension Data. Both together will power the expansion of our global presence and enable us accelerate the growth of our team by hiring the brightest minds in the business. Speaking of which, we’re hiring! Check out our open roles and apply to join us on our careers page.
As for the Highfive platform, stay tuned for more info on new updates coming later this spring. Trust us, the best is yet to come!
