AeroFS Merges with Redbooth to Deliver Broadest End-to-End Collaboration and Project Management Solution

Combined Company to Align with Customers’ Evolving Business Needs; Poised to Accelerate Profitability and Growth

PALO ALTO, Calif., September 13, 2017 — AeroFS, a leader in integrated collaboration solutions, today announced that it has merged with Redbooth, an innovative task and project management platform for work teams. The new entity will retain the Redbooth company name and combine products and other assets to meet the evolving needs of today’s modern work teams, while accelerating profitability, growth and market share. Yuri Sagalov, co-founder and CEO of AeroFS, will lead the executive team as Redbooth’s new CEO based in the company’s Palo Alto, California headquarters.

“Collaboration has become so fundamental to today’s work teams, with an increased demand for seamless collaboration, real-time file sharing and chat, task prioritization and efficient project management,” said Sagalov. “Redbooth has built a rich, impressive customer roster and both companies have excelled in attracting users in the enterprise and SME markets.

“Today’s business users increasingly want end-to-end capabilities for project management and collaboration under a single, unified product suite. The merger of the AeroFS and Redbooth platforms will create a compelling competitive advantage over current one-off solutions on the market, and eliminate the need for work teams to be relegated to use five or six separate solutions for all their collaboration needs.”

 

The Best of Both Worlds: Project, Task Management with File-based Collaboration

Redbooth is an easy-to-use online task and project management software solution for work teams. Users can seamlessly prioritize and delegate tasks, create visual timelines and work remotely from anywhere. Thousands of companies use Redbooth to stay organized, in sync and on schedule.

Last quarter, AeroFS unveiled a new release of its award-winning Amium collaboration platform optimized for intuitive, highly efficient real-time communications. Amium delivers a powerful, content-centric collaboration environment with the unique capability to seamlessly collaborate with people outside the organization as well as internal users. By integrating the two products, the new company gains a higher level of product unification and increased functionality in a single solution, delivering a more robust, end-to-end business collaboration solution for work teams anywhere in the world.

“The AeroFS and Redbooth teams each have a long, collaborative history,” continued Sagalov. “We have a common target market, philosophy about combining technologies for business collaboration, a similar business model, and our products have evolved along a parallel path. With this combined outlook, we will offer a highly compelling solution for the market, leveraging our combined strengths and successes to accelerate growth and provide customers with a significantly improved, powerful solution that is non-existent in today’s collaboration and unified communications markets.”

Redbooth Introduces Support for Google’s New Android for Work Program, Making Mobile Work More Convenient Than Ever

Redwood City – November 1, 2016
On The Heels of Launching The First Enterprise App For Apple TV, Redbooth Continues To Expand Options For Mobile Work, Liberating Knowledge Workers From the Tyranny of Their Desks

Redbooth, the intuitive task and project management platform for teams, today announced that its Android app now supports Google’s Android for Work program. Security-conscious companies with employees using their own mobile devices can now choose a platform that their employees enjoy using — and that their IT departments can successfully administer. Redbooth’s app for Android for Work is paving the way for increased adoption and more secure management of company information accessed via mobile devices.

“We see great potential in the Android for Work platform, along with a true opportunity to make the lives of our customers easier,” said Ben Falk, Redbooth’s Director of Mobile. “We’ve taken the first big step in enhancing our app so it can be part of this exciting program. We look forward to continuing to partner with Google as this program enhances the mobile experience for our Android customers.”

The Redbooth app for Android for Work is a friendly, streamlined experience that includes kanban view for to-do lists as well as the ability to easily assign tasks and deadlines, leave comments, and resolve tasks on the go. The app taps in directly to Redbooth’s cloud-based task and project management platform, which can be used by a team or an entire company.

“Redbooth’s Android for Work app is a simple yet powerful productivity application that capitalizes on the best principles of material design,” Falk said. “It’s a fun, best-in-class productivity tool for any Android user — and at the same time it’s incredibly straightforward for long-time Redbooth customers. The whole experience is super-clean.”

Redbooth’s placement in the Google Play Store’s Android for Work area follows on the heels of its launch of the first ever enterprise collaboration app for Apple TV, which brings a streamlined, responsive version of shared virtual team workspaces and planning templates into the boardroom and the living room. Redbooth is committed to providing teams with the optimal methods to access their work and collaborate with their colleagues, regardless of where they are located or the devices they’re using.

Redbooth’s free Android for Work app is available now on the Google Play store. Users who sign up through the app also receive a free version of Redbooth’s web app, where they can explore the full suite of Redbooth’s productivity tools with even more powerful features.

Introducing Redbooth for Apple TV, a Groundbreaking Productivity App Designed Exclusively for Apple TV

Redwood City – August 18, 2016
Redbooth Provides Groups with a Seamless Collaboration Platform, Maximizing the Apple TV Experience in the Living Room and the Board Room

Redbooth, the all-in-one project management and collaboration platform to get tasks done, today announced the launch of its new Apple TV app. Designed exclusively for the new Apple TV, the new Redbooth app leverages the power of the platform to encourage group discussion, collaboration and planning around the screens in our offices and homes from lesson planning and backlog prioritization meetings to trip planning and a wedding countdown. The free, purpose-built app displays an optimized version of Redbooth, enabling teams to run more efficient meetings and be more productive, and families or friends to plan and complete important projects.

“As a collaboration app designed specifically for Apple TV, we’re delivering a groundbreaking, streamlined experience that allows you to skip the screen-sharing, ditch the dongles and start planning quickly and beautifully in the living room or the board room,” said Dan Schoenbaum, CEO for Redbooth. “Combined with Redbooth’s apps for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch, this affords maximum flexibility when editing tasks, adding comments and staying connected to your team’s work.”

The initial version of Redbooth for Apple TV includes some of the following capabilities:

  • Optimized for Large Screens: Rather than projecting the standard Redbooth desktop client, a streamlined, responsive version of the workspace is displayed, which can be used to guide, organize and facilitate group meetings or gatherings tied to projects and tasks;
  • Customized User Experience: Once a user is logged in, a user’s existing workspaces are automatically synced, providing an easy way for team members to drill down into an individual’s workspace to view task lists and tasks, view task status, assignees, due date, description and comments, mark tasks complete, set a due date, and view extended descriptions and comments;
  • Integrated Content: Get started quickly with Redbooth’s free project templates or use your Redbooth account to easily view and update your existing workspaces. Users can access and view a variety of useful content, including application training, best practices and productivity tips – all available for on-screen viewing.

Redbooth for Apple TV is available now and can be downloaded directly from the App Store for Apple TV. For more information, visit: https://redbooth.com.

Redbooth Brings Powerful Task and Project Management to Cisco Spark Through New Bot Integration

Las Vegas – July 11, 2016
Chat Bots and Natural Language Processing Extends Cisco Spark Messaging Experience and Enhances Team Collaboration and Productivity

Today at Cisco Live, Cisco’s annual IT and communications conference, Redbooth, the all-in-one project management and collaboration platform, announced an integration with Cisco Spark that transforms the way teams interact and run their projects. Leveraging the Api.ai platform and Cisco Spark APIs, users can employ intuitive natural language commands to manage Redbooth-powered projects and tasks directly from Cisco Spark messaging streams. Redbooth will be demonstrating this intuitive and simple user experience at Cisco Live booth C9.

Through this unique integration of the leading project management and team collaboration applications, users can seamlessly move from planning work to real-time collaboration. Using the Redbooth bot available in a Cisco Spark room, team members can ask an array of questions of their workspace such as “what’s happening today?”, “show me what my team is working on,” and “what’s urgent?” Cisco Spark’s messaging and meeting experience can then be extended to drive meaningful work outcomes, with real-time communications triggered by project status and follow-up activities tracked by Redbooth.

“As we’ve seen in the consumer market with the increasing popularity of Apple’s Siri and other artificial intelligence-powered products, natural language interaction with apps represents one of the next frontiers in how we manage work and collaborate with others,” said Dan Schoenbaum, CEO for Redbooth. “Through this integration, customers will literally be able to ask a wide range questions to their Redbooth project in Cisco Spark rooms using natural language. We’re excited about the game changing potential this type of innovation will bring to the way teams plan, manage and complete work in a collaboration-centric environment.”

Cisco Spark and Redbooth Boost Team Productivity Together

Redwood City, California – May 2, 2016
New Integration Brings Actionable Task and Project Management to the Cisco Spark Team Collaboration Experience

Redbooth, the all-in-one project management and collaboration platform to get work done, today announced a new integration with Cisco Spark to unite task-centric Redbooth workspaces and communications-centric Cisco Spark rooms. Through this integration, users can now work simultaneously in both Redbooth and Cisco Spark to seamlessly communicate and collaborate with a clear focus on productively completing work.

The linkage of Cisco Spark and Redbooth enables teams to flexibly manage their work and collaborate in the way that fits their business. Redbooth’s powerful task management visibility can be customized in a variety of views, including standard task lists, Kanban boards and Gantt charts via the newly introduced Timeline view. Updates to tasks tracked by Redbooth are then automatically added to the associated Cisco Spark room. This means that important information can drop right into the place where teams are already sharing messages, using voice and voice communications, and launching meetings.

“Redbooth already makes everything actionable, trackable, and reportable, and with this new integration, you bring that level of accountability right into your team communications in Cisco Spark,” said Jordi Romero, VP Business Development & Platform for Redbooth. “Redbooth takes the Cisco Spark collaboration experience to a new level of productivity where teams are able to track work in a way that is visible and transparent, and drive to productive outcomes faster.”

“Cisco Spark is transforming how teams collaborate, bringing them together in a place that makes it easy to keep people and work connected, said Jason Goecke, General Manager, Tropo Business Unit at Cisco. “Further customizing and differentiating this experience, our open APIs enable business critical apps to integrate with Cisco Spark. As a solution that also enhances the productivity of teams, we are excited to add Redbooth to our growing ecosystem of apps that extend the value of Cisco Spark.”

The Redbooth integration with Cisco Spark is available to Redbooth users immediately and can be activated via their user profile settings. New users can try all of Redbooth’s powerful task and project management capabilities, as well as the Cisco Spark integration, via a free trial at https://redbooth.com.
