Changing the way the world collaborates
Kaptivo uses AI to make visual collaboration easier and more efficient. Its flagship product addresses an unmet need in remote meetings: connecting the 100s of millions of existing, regular whiteboards to the digital collaboration stack so that participants can brainstorm, plan and draw as if everyone was in the same room.
With Kaptivo, remote meetings now include live-streamed whiteboard content, with augmented capabilities including automatic note-taking. Businesses and schools use Kaptivo in conjunction with Zoom, Cisco Webex, Microsoft Teams, Slack and other collaboration tools to improve productivity while keeping content secure.
