The leading provider of enterprise cloud video communications technology today announced that year-over-year its revenue has grown 150 percent and it has had a 100 percent increase in its customer base. Some of Zoom's other impressive recent accomplishments include:

  • Extending its reach by opening U.K. and Sydney offices, as well as more international data centers,
  • Introducing new features and enhancements to its platform, including Zoom Rooms Scheduling Display, Zoom for Telehealth, and an increased default capacity of 100 participants,
  • Securing large-scale deployments from customers such as 21st Century Fox, Stanford University, Pandora, and Cornell University,

  • Announcing Zoomtopia, the first Zoom user conference, to be held Sept. 26 in San Mateo, CA.

"From the moment we founded Zoom, our main focus has been to provide a cloud video communications solution that would make customers happy. That focus has continued to guide all our innovations, partnerships, and other initiatives," said Eric S. Yuan, CEO and founder of Zoom. "The fantastic growth we're experiencing and the many industry accolades we've received can all be attributed to having satisfied customers that enjoy using our platform. I'm delighted with our growth and grateful for our awards, but I believe our biggest accomplishment is creating a culture of happiness at Zoom."

Zoom's impressive growth and innovative technology introductions have captured industry attention, netting the company a steady stream of accolades, including:

"Zoom's recent accolades are well deserved. The company's cloud-centric platform is cost effective and easy to use, and takes much of the friction out of hosting and joining video conferencing sessions, conducting webinars, and enabling B2B messaging," said Ira M. Weinstein, Senior Analyst and Partner at Wainhouse Research. "Despite its ongoing success, the company continues to innovate and improve, releasing new features and capabilities at an impressive pace. For these reasons, Zoom's exceptional growth is not surprising to me."
