Vidyard Extends Video Messaging Leadership with the Release of Vidyard GoVideo

Vidyard expands capabilities of free video messaging app for business professionals, changes name from ViewedIt to Vidyard GoVideo to reflect bolder vision

KITCHENER, ON--(Marketwired - September 26, 2017) - Vidyard, the leading provider of new generation video platforms for business, today announced new capabilities, a new name and a bolder vision for its revolutionary video messaging app. Now named Vidyard GoVideo, the free application formerly called ViewedIt makes it easier than ever for business professionals, organizations and third-party app developers to create, share and track personal videos from within the tools they use every day.

"Video is the most powerful way to connect and communicate, but it's still too difficult and largely inaccessible for the average business professional," says Michael Litt, co-founder and CEO at Vidyard. "With Vidyard GoVideo, we're changing that. We're making it easy for anyone to capture and share personal video messages and screen recordings from within their application of choice. We're helping end users and businesses go video in a way that simply connects with how they do business today."

With more than 130,000 users in over 100 countries, Vidyard GoVideo has been embraced by business professionals as an easy way to record, share and track personal video messages and screen recordings. Business users have embraced video as a better way to connect with prospects, customers, partners and colleagues, just like they have done in their personal lives with apps like Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. With new capabilities announced today, Vidyard GoVideo makes it even easier for individuals to leverage video in their professional lives, and for application providers to embed video capabilities within their existing solutions.

Expanded Capabilities for Video Messaging and Sharing
Vidyard GoVideo now enables anyone to add video communications to their day-to-day business activities with the following capabilities:

  • Create personal video messages and screen captures with one click
  • Optimize viewership with engaging animated GIF thumbnail images
  • Share videos instantly via Gmail, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and now YouTube
  • Track audience engagement with video view notifications

With Vidyard GoVideo Enterprise, businesses can unlock new capabilities to boost the performance of sales, support, marketing and other teams across the business:

  • Empower employees with instant access to shared libraries of video content
  • Track video viewing insights centrally within common marketing and sales tools
  • Enhance videos with custom forms and overlay annotations to drive action
  • Secure internal videos with access controls and enterprise-grade security
  • Leverage the Vidyard GoVideo partner ecosystem to easily record and share videos from within a variety of other business apps

Powering Video Experiences Across Business Applications
Today, Vidyard has also introduced the Vidyard GoVideo partner ecosystem program, a growing community of SaaS technology vendors who are adding video capture, sharing and tracking capabilities to their own applications powered by Vidyard GoVideo. Sales, marketing and customer experience technology leaders including Bolstra, Drift, Engagio, Gainsight, Influitive, Madison Logic, SalesLoft, Uberflip and WorkRamp will leverage Vidyard GoVideo to enable their own users to go video within their applications.

"With Vidyard's GoVideo Partner Ecosystem, we're delivering on our mission to make it easy for anyone in business to leverage video in a way that is simple, integrated and connected," says Steve Johnson, president and COO at Vidyard. "We believe this is just the beginning of what's possible when it comes to integrating video within the workplace, so we invite those interested in learning about partnership opportunities with us to connect with our team today."
