Highfive Named One of CIOReview’s 10 Most Promising Collaboration Solution Providers

Thrilled to announce that Highfive has been named one of CIOReview’s 10 Most Promising Collaboration Solution Providers for 2018! As the standalone video conferencing solution to be included, we’re proud to be recognized (for the second time this month!) as the company leading the industry.

CIOReview’s panel of CEOs, CIOs and analysts began with a list of solution providers meeting customer demands and transforming the collaboration technology industry. The panel then selected 10 players in the space best enabling enterprises to break through the barriers of the traditional workplace. These companies are seen as leaders optimizing employee performance across locations with better connectivity and communication thanks to a combination of video, audio, and chat technologies.

“With a focus on bringing together hardware and software into one conferencing solution with best-in-class audio, video and content sharing, Highfive eases the process of managing, deploying, and using conferencing technology,” writes Justin Gonsalves, Senior Editor for CIOReview. “With HD cameras and industry-leading audio powered by Dolby Voice, Highfive’s all-in-one solution makes collaboration a cakewalk for anyone in an organization. The concept of starting calls without app downloads or pin codes is the icing on the cake.”

Joe Manuele, CEO of Highfive, talks to business leaders every day, hearing first-hand their dissatisfaction with legacy conferencing solutions that are leaving 90% of meeting rooms empty with no video communications. “People are working differently today,” says Joe, “and they’re using multiple devices and conferencing solutions across various locations to communicate. However, the meeting rooms where they want to collaborate are empty because, frankly, their conferencing solution can’t deliver the reliability and quality of experience they want, or it’s too confusing to use. Why should an end user need a cheat sheet just to make a video conference? It’s unimaginable, but that’s the reality.”

Highfive has reimagined successful meeting rooms, making immersive video conferencing ubiquitous from small huddle rooms to large conference rooms. We’ve brought together a cost-effective, integrated hardware and software conferencing solution that anyone can set up in five minutes or less, with brilliant high-fidelity audio, 4K camera, virtual whiteboard, and integrates with our customers favorite workflows such as Slack, Microsoft O365, and G Suite.
