join.me Now Key Collaboration Tool for Product Development Across Scripps' Key Brands, Including HGTV , Food Network , Cooking Channel and Travel Channel

WOBURN, Mass., Jan. 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Scripps Networks Interactive has selected join.me, the instant online meeting and screen sharing service from LogMeIn (Nasdaq:LOGM), as its primary internal collaboration tool to unite product development and project management teams spread across the country.

Scripps previously used a traditional formal web conferencing solution for team collaboration and made the switch to join.me primarily because of the tool's simplicity, speed and comparative value, as well as the company's familiarity with other LogMeIn products.

"We need a tool that is fast, reliable and easy to use," said Bud Ketterl, vice president of Project Management at Scripps Interactive Networks. "The intuitive nature and fast start time of join.me make our daily product development meetings much more productive and effective, while opening the doors for more ad-hoc collaboration sessions between teams. The fact that those benefits come with an incredibly competitive price made the switch to join.me an easy decision."

Scripps Networks Interactive is the leading developer of high-profile, lifestyle-oriented content for many media platforms including television, digital, mobile and publishing. Its media portfolio includes popular lifestyle brands HGTV, DIY Network, Food Network, Cooking Channel, Travel Channel and country music network Great American Country (GAC). On-air programming is complemented with online video, social media and e-commerce components on companion websites reaching millions of fans around the world.

The Scripps product development and project management teams in New York, Tennessee, Maryland and Virginia are leveraging join.me on a daily basis to connect with one another, as well as with third-party vendors located throughout the U.S.

"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. "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."
