With January 2021 almost behind us, and the mashme team already delivering further enhancements to the platform, it’s time to take a moment to reflect on last year’s key developments as well as the continued evolution of the mashme.io Room of the Future product.
Last year began with some strategic consolidation and general interface improvements, before moving at a break-neck pace to deliver a range of features, including additional roles to support new use cases and advancements in the platform’s functionality. The service soon scaled seamlessly to meet the demands of increased traffic as we deployed into new territories around the globe. Customers continued to select mashme for their education and corporate training requirements, resulting in the engagement of key, local partners to support the company’s continued growth.
We are delighted to be entering 2021 with further platform improvements. Q1 will see the introduction of iOS support for the iPad and iPhone, as well as further advances in session management, delivering an enhanced user experience.
Our partners will also soon benefit from the launch of the mashme.io Partner Portal. We are dedicated to working with skilled partners to support mashme.io Room of the Future solutions and we are delighted to make this excellent resource available to them.
But most important of all, we want to thank our growing mashme family of customers, partners, suppliers, and investors, for their continued support and collaboration. Please keep well, stay safe in 2021, and let’s continue to collaborate.
We value you all.
Here follows a snapshot of role improvements and key integrations from 2020 and our starting point. For further information please contact your account manager or email one of the mashme.io team [email protected].
