ScreenMeet Introduces Screen Sharing from Android Phones and Tablets

ScreenMeet introduced today the first secure mobile app that enables screen sharing from Android phones and tablets to any device. Sales and marketing professionals can stay on schedule, present their work and show apps in real-time – on the go – with no software download required for viewers.

“We evaluated every web conferencing product in the market and found that ScreenMeet had all the features we need, and none of the ones we don't,” said Steve Weidman, senior vice president, Sales, ZOZI. “On average, ScreenMeet saves us 10 minutes per sales or training call. We love it, and so do our merchants.” ZOZI is the fastest growing SaaS reservation system for the $125B global tours and activities market. Approaching a $1 billion dollar gross transaction value, the company has secured nearly $50M in financing from top investors, including Sir Richard Branson and Pritzker Vlock Ventures.

Virtual meetings are replacing in-person meetings. Work now happens on the road, in home offices and at collaborative workspaces. ScreenMeet is simple, yet powerful online meeting software for presenting work with colleagues, clients and prospects instead of having to email them large files. Requiring no downloads to attend, it is designed for the way business works today. A personalized Website link sent by email or text by the host gives guests access to join a screen sharing session. ScreenMeet runs on Mac and Windows. The Android version is immediately available on Google Play.

“Everyone loathes meetings when they start late and ironically, technology is often the cause,” said Will Porteous, general partner, RRE. “We invested in ScreenMeet because it eliminates obstacles to productivity and is designed for the mobile, digital workforce. This is our second time investing in Ben. We value his unique insights into collaboration and communications.” RRE is a venture capital firm based in New York City.

ScreenMeet was created by Ben Lilienthal and Eugene Abovsky. Before ScreenMeet, Mr. Lilienthal started and sold Vapps, the VoIP audio conferencing service, to Citrix Systems, Inc.

“ScreenMeet complements the emerging tools used by the distributed workforce, like Slack for messaging, Box for files or Google Docs for content development,” said Ben Lilienthal, co-founder and CEO, ScreenMeet. “Existing collaboration software is bloated with unnecessary features. It’s mired in the past and makes us adapt to it instead of it adapting to the way we work now. That frustration inspired us to create ScreenMeet.”
