The SaaS Awards celebrate excellence and innovation for cloud-based “solutions as a service,” and are one of the most prestigious awards in the SaaS industry. Last year, Highfive made the cut for the SaaS Awards’ shortlist honoring the best Software-as-a-Service for small businesses. This year we’re thrilled to be named to the shortlist for Enterprise.

Making the 2018 shortlist for enterprise products validates the progress we’ve made this year to achieve our ultimate goal of making Highfive the go-to form of communication for companies building a more connected culture — no matter their size or location.

Earlier this year, we were honored to be recognized by Fast Company as one of the World’s Most Innovative Companies in Enterprise for 2018. That award was the result of hard work from our team to innovate in the mature and stagnant video conferencing industry, introducing new features, updates, and improvements that make Highfive the perfect platform for the future of enterprise workplace collaboration.

For businesses today, video conferencing is no longer a ‘nice to have’ feature, it’s a necessity. Highfive is built for companies large and small that are looking for a cost-effective solution to cover every collaboration use case, enable flexible remote work options, and provide a robust enterprise feature set that doesn’t compromise the user experience. Our core belief is that for collaboration to be effective, a company’s communication platform must be simple enough for employees to effortlessly use and incorporate into their daily workflow.

Every Highfive product update is built with that vision in mind, including the new features and offerings we brought to customers this year:

  • Interoperability: Participants are be able to join Highfive meetings via third-party SIP devices, which means Highfive now plays well with other meeting room hardware.
  • More Pricing Options: We’ve added several new purchasing plans, including software only options and advanced meeting room packages through Highfive Premium. Now, customers can pick and choose the perfect software and meeting room plan to fit the needs of their organization.
  • Enhanced Professional Services: Once you’ve found exactly what you need, our professional services teams will come on-site to help you get up and running right away. They’ll make sure you’re set up for success from the beginning, and our Customer Success Managers will continue to work with you to make sure you’re getting the most out of Highfive.

We also recently launched our powerful new Premium meeting room package. Premium includes advanced features like Whiteboard View, intelligent scene framing, dual-screen support, and digital PTZ with an intuitive touchscreen control, and it runs on the brand new Dolby Voice Room hardware: a 4k HDR smart camera that paired with the Dolby Conference Phone. Highfive Premium is a top-of-the-line meeting room experience that won’t break the bank, and it is purpose-built to tackle the most challenging conferencing needs for SMBs and enterprise companies alike.

These new features and offerings, developed based on our vision for the future of collaboration and with feedback from our valued customers including Rolling Stone, Paperless Post, and Betterment, are redefining what workplace collaboration looks like for the modern companies of today.We’re proud to see our team’s work recognized, and we look forward to continuing to make meetings better for thousands of organizations around the world!
