Mersive Listed in Deloitte’s 2018 Technology Fast 500™
“Like many successful start-ups, Mersive’s dramatic growth is a function of matching market timing with the right product strategy,” said Mersive Technologies CEO, Rob Balgley. “We have benefited greatly from the evolution of meeting culture which has moved from single threaded content sharing which results in presentation by default, to one where everyone can share content leading to improved collaboration and productivity. Mersive has distinguished itself in the market by combining a fun, easy-to-use application for meeting participants, with the kind of control, security and network support required by leading enterprises and higher-ed institutions.”
Overall, 2018 Technology Fast 500™ companies achieved revenue growth ranging from 143 percent to 77,260 percent from 2014 to 2017, with median growth of 412 percent. The growth in coworking has helped transform Mersive into one of the most rapidly growing, and advanced in-room wireless collaboration platforms available.
Using Mersive’s technology, companies can better understand how meeting space is being used, and how their workforce interacts. With this insight, decision makers can predict space usage and workforce engagement trends that can have a real impact on budgeting and optimization. But, with the addition of predictive analytics in the AV industry, companies will be able to gain even deeper insights into meeting space usage spurring increased optimization, improved meeting efficiency, and workplace innovation.
“Our own research shows that meetings taking place in huddle spaces are 34 percent shorter and involve 22 percent more shared content than those in traditional conference rooms,” added Balgley. “This highly effective use of the work day is the very thing driving successful companies to seek out even better collaboration. And, we are already planning new capabilities like advanced analytics, automated insights, and meeting metrics to create even more value and ROI.”
