Real-time communication and collaboration
Established in 2001 in Karlsruhe, Germany, Netviewer is a leading European producer and vendor of web conferencing solutions. Since 2011, it has been part of Citrix Online, the online services division of Citrix Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CTXS). Citrix Online provides secure, user-friendly solutions for global online collaboration. Its products – GoToMyPC for remote access, GoToAssist for customer support, GoToMeeting for online meetings and GoToWebinar for webinars – enable more than 35,000 companies and hundreds of thousands of individual users to optimize their sales, marketing, training and service activities simply and efficiently.
Thanks to web collaboration, Internet users can share their screen views "live" in order to work together on texts, calculations, graphics or other documents. Online communication and collaboration in real time means that travel and related costs can be reduced substantially – and productivity increased. At the same time, users are making an active contribution to climate protection and conservation of the environment.
Global market with high growth rates
With its team of highly qualified experts, Citrix Online faces up to the challenges of one of the most dynamically growing markets in the IT industry. Web collaboration is already a billion-dollar global market, and all leading analysts forecast strong growth rates for the next few years. With increased market penetration, smaller enterprises are increasingly enjoying the benefits of web conferencing technology, while webinars are becoming an integral part of present-day sales and marketing strategies.
As a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider, the company hosts millions of web conferencing and support sessions and also webinars in its data centers every year. The acquisition of Netviewer will help to reinforce the leading role of Citrix Online in the European SaaS market.
