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, Central Desktop will join the iMeet family of collaboration tools and be rebranded as iMeet Central. The transition is expected to be seamless to end users who have come to depend on our collaboration solution and requires little to no change on your part.

Whitelisting iMeet Central

Permalinks, custom navigation and more
All permalinks, custom navigation and custom tabs that link to internal Central Desktop pages will automatically be updated so you will not need to change these.
The Central Desktop mobile application will become the iMeet Central mobile app. We will push an update to the Android and iTunes stores which will automatically update the app with the new look and logo.
