Klaxoon Launches Next-Generation Meetings Workshop Platform for Hybrid Work, Based on More Than 10 Million Hosted Workshops

Klaxoon, the workshop collaboration company, today announced the preview of the world's first all-in-one virtual collaborative meeting workshop platform that enables organizations to seamlessly blend in-person and remote work with asynchronous, persistent, and flexible platforms. Klaxoon is the first cloud workshop platform that brings together previously disparate functions into one cohesive platform to support today's hybrid work including a virtual whiteboard, surveys, memos, along with video and audio.

"The pandemic redefined work in many ways and forced all of us to adapt to different ways of collaborating. We've all sat for hours in front of our computers in meeting after meeting; it's time for collaboration and meeting tools to adapt to the new reality of work so that organizations and their teams can be most productive and efficient no matter where (or when) they are," said Matthieu Beucher, CEO and founder of Klaxoon. "It's time to shake off the shackles of time and space and blend in-person and remote work. After hosting more than 10 million workshops, we've witnessed teams gain vast efficiencies transitioning meetings into more collaborative workshops."

As part of its worldwide expansion, the company also announced opening a U.S. headquarters in Boston with an initial staff of 15 employees. The company expects that number to grow to 100 by the end of 2022. Also, Beucher and several other Klaxoon executives are relocating. Started in 2015 in France, the company today has more than 300 employees and is used by tens of thousands of teams in more than 120 countries from the Fortune 500 to small businesses.

Klaxoon's new workshop platform allows teams to run productive workshops in a very simple way, anywhere, and from any device. It integrates an unmatched collection of features and services such as whiteboard, chat and communications tools, information sharing features, automated reporting, and built-in video conferencing, to effectively engage teams and get things done in hybrid settings.

Anyone can create a session with participants joining from anywhere in the world. Information can be shared from any source by any of the participants and displayed on a whiteboard. There are no limits to sharing of ideas with participants able to comment and ask questions, take polls, and share their screens. Importantly, workshop participants and others can continue their work after the initial session ? whether together or separately with access to all the shared information and ideas. A news feed keeps everyone informed about all the latest actions happening in their workshops.

The Klaxoon platform enables any number of people to connect with audio and video -- using the built-in Klaxoon capability or another conferencing platform like Microsoft Teams or Zoom -- with the ability to share information of any type (documents, images, presentations, spreadsheets). The entire work session is saved and can be exported as an automatic report to share with anyone. After the live session, the information is preserved and can be accessed by any authorized user who can continue to add information, ask questions or comment.

"When the world had to go remote, we were looking for the best tool to conduct and run the workshop. After six months of testing, the Klaxoon tool turned out to be a success and is now adopted by over 2,000 people in Microsoft Catalyst teams," said Rudy Dillenseger, worldwide director, sales strategy and enablement at Microsoft Corp. "Klaxoon is easy to roll out globally and allows us to provide a great experience to our customers, even remotely. Klaxoon helps our sales teams to facilitate workshops with efficiency and added interactivity in order to better identify our customers' needs and solutions. It's a critical element in our customer engagement process."

In addition to software, Klaxoon provides optional hardware to facilitate virtual workshops, such as a network device that sets up a private network anywhere for up to 100 people, as well as touchscreen meeting boards available in different sizes from 49- to 65-inches.

"Our new workshop platform is not at all like other collaboration tools or conference software that tend to be one-time meetings -- what we're delivering is actually better than a finite group of people gathered in one physical location at one point in time," said Beucher.

The new workshop platform includes new features with more to come at CES 2022 in January. To learn more and access Klaxoon workshops go here.
