LogMeIn has completed its acquisition of Jive Communications, a provider of cloud-based phone systems and Unified Communications (UC) services.

The acquisition, first announced in February, accelerates LogMeIn’s overall unified communications and collaboration (UCC) strategy and bolsters LogMeIn’s popular collaboration portfolio, bringing together LogMeIn’s offerings like GoToMeeting, GoToWebinar, and join.me with Jive’s innovative UC products.

“LogMeIn and Jive share a common philosophy,” said Bill Wagner, president and CEO of LogMeIn.

“We both build frictionless user experiences and easy-to-deploy cloud-based solutions designed to scale simply and securely.”

He added: “As part of the LogMeIn family, Jive gains significant scale and resources to help accelerate innovation, introduce complementary best-in-class offerings, and expand their footprint into new markets. It’s this combination that has us so excited about our future together – a shared opportunity to shape the ways modern workers communicate and collaborate to advance ideas, close business, and get work done.”

LogMeIn will provide updated second quarter and full year 2018 guidance, including the contribution from Jive Communications, on its first quarter earnings call.
