Founded in 2011, Zoom (NASDAQ:ZM) is publicly traded communications technology company, headquartered in San Jose, California. Workvivo was founded in 2017 and since then has been a true Irish success story. It provides a modern, feature-rich employee experience platform, combining advanced internal communication and engagement tools, a social intranet, and an employee app, all blended into one central hub, forming the heart of a company’s digital ecosystem. Workvivo’s offering has seen triple-digit growth in the last three years and is used and trusted by hundreds of customers worldwide, including some of the world’s most well-known brands. With this strategically important acquisition, Zoom adds to its capability to provide a market leading end-to-end collaboration platform focused on enabling modern work and powering the digital-first workplace. Zoom intends to incorporate Workvivo’s capabilities into its platform to further strengthen its existing employee experience offerings.
