Shaping collaboration in product development and among project management teams has always been a very daunting task, especially in complex industries. As such, manufacturers and suppliers need to maintain full spectrum internal collaboration within all departments in order to satisfy customer demand more effectively.


To establish effective collaborations between product development and project management teams spread across the country, Scripps Networks Interactive has selected join.me, the instant online meeting and screen sharing service from LogMeIn (News - Alert) (LOGM).

The company, who was once using a traditional and more formal Web conferencing solution for team collaboration, now enjoys join.me for its unprecedented simplicity, speed and comparative value, as well as the company's familiarity with other LogMeIn products. join.me is an instant screen sharing and online meeting service from LogMeIn.

join.me will ultimately helpproject management teams at Scripps, based in New York, Tennessee, Maryland and Virginia, to connect with one another, as well as with third-party vendors located throughout the U.S.

Scripps Networks Interactive is a developer of high-profile, lifestyle-oriented content for many media platforms including television, digital, mobile and publishing.

"Scripps' adoption of join.me is a great example of how modern businesses can boost collaboration between geographically disparate people and teams – empowering mobile staff or simply making it easier for people to collaborate across office locations," said Lou Orfanos, director of Collaboration Products for LogMeIn, in a statement. "We've found the speed and simplicity of join.me to be especially valuable to people in collaborative roles, like product development, who have historically been stuck using complex Web conferencing tools or forced to find less visual means of sharing information."
