Brainshark Inc. has hit a new milestone, with consumers viewing enough video to be played back to back for 1,200 years. The company is a leader in online and mobile presentations (as well as a leader in awesome names), and continues to provide growth and profit for its sixth year in a row.
Brainshark’s cloud-based solutions are used by thousands of companies, providing easy and effective communications at an affordable price. It can convert static documents into online video presentations, capable of being viewed on demand from any device. Furthermore, its SlideShark app for the iPad and iPhone has helped its outreach, adding PowerPoint presentations to the iOS tablets, and the Brainshark Mobile Player lets iOS and Android devices use interactive features without even needing an app.
In 2012, Brainshark managed to hit quite a number of milestones. Not only has it streamed over 636 million minutes worth of video presentations, but its viewing and usage numbers hit new records, with customers in 26 different verticals. It has also partnered with many new companies, including Microsoft and Oracle, expanding its user base even further.
"We're proud of all our successes in 2012 – a testament to the great customers we have and our talented, dedicated team," says Joe Gustafson, CEO of Brainshark. "In the year ahead, as video, mobile and social continue to drive change, Brainshark is well-poised to help companies take their communications to the next level and deliver their messages with maximum impact. We're looking forward to executing on our exciting product roadmap – with groundbreaking solutions and features that will help companies equip their sales forces for success, as well as improve overall communications."
2012 was a great year for Brainshark, and it looks like 2013 is shaping up to take those records even higher. Its solutions are great for online presentations, capable of being viewed from anywhere on nearly any device, which makes it in demand in a BYOD environment. These coming quarters should prove quite kind to the company.
And seriously, is there a cooler name than “Brainshark” out there?
