LiveSift Raises $800K to Expand Its Enterprise Productivity Platform

Company Also Changes Its Name to MeetingSift

HONOLULU, HI--(Marketwired - May 21, 2015) - LiveSift announces today that it has secured seed financing in excess of $800,000 USD and that it will be re-named to MeetingSift, effective immediately. The name change is part of an initiative to better align the company's name with its corporate mission and strategy.

"MeetingSift is powering today's intelligent enterprise with its patent-pending meeting productivity platform. In the 25 million daily business meetings in the US, up to 50% of the time is considered wasted. MeetingSift increases productivity by structuring collaborative processes to tap into the collective intelligence of the meeting participants. The platform supports and enhances most meeting types including creative meetings, problem solving and strategic decision making," states Dr. Alex Bergo, Chief Executive Officer for MeetingSift.

With the release of the enhanced Pro edition and launch of the Business edition of its product, MeetingSift makes it easier for Department Managers, Meeting Facilitators, and Corporate Communications and HR professionals everywhere to organize, execute, and follow-up on meetings. MeetingSift’s 3-screen process encourages meeting participant engagement and collaboration and uses technology to boost proven methodologies that tap into the full potential of meetings.

"MeetingSift embraces the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend, and our customers find our technology not only easy-to-use, but they have fun using it. This is an exciting stage in our company, with new branding, features, pricing, and an expanding team," states Dr. Bergo.

"Our new name will reflect our firm commitment to offering meeting collaboration solutions that power today's intelligent enterprise. In addition, our financing allows us to invest in Sales, Marketing, and Support resources in order to complement our already strong engineering and research capabilities," states Richard White, COO of MeetingSift.

MeetingSift will continue to offer an Event edition for conferences and conventions. The company has designed a powerful, yet affordable, offering that includes small to large group activities, customizable screens and logins, special event displays, online survey capabilities, and highly visual reporting.
