On November 6, 2015, Central Desktop becomes iMeet® Central
In October, 2014, PGi, a global leader in collaboration software and services, acquired Central Desktop. As part of the acquisition, the Central Desktop product will join the iMeet® family of collaboration tools and be rebranded as iMeet® Central.
