Qumu Video Engagement
Qumu takes a slightly different approach to the crowded collaboration space with its video engagement platform. The Qumu platform can be used to create, manage, distribute and measure the success of webcasts, virtual events, and employee collaboration and training through analytics. The 20-year-old Minneapolis-based company specializes in asynchronous, secure video, whether it’s large-scale, companywide town halls, or executives sending out short video messages to their teams via the company’s existing collaboration team. Qumu counts many large brands, including Bayer, Kroger and Mastercard, as its customers.
The company in April also named a new CEO: Rose Bentley, Qumu’s former chief operating officer who joined the company in 2021. Bentley is no stranger to the collaboration space or the channel, having worked on Cisco’s Webex Experience Management team after the tech giant acquired CloudCherry, as the organization’s North American sales and operations leader. In her short tenure with Qumu so far, she’s been heads-down focused on building repeatable sales while transforming the company from on-premises to the cloud, she told CRN in May.
