Virtual collaboration has risen to prominence in recent years, fueled by conditions during the pandemic. Because of that, the tools that make it all possible are as pervasive as the meetings they host, causing one to wonder if there’s room for yet another platform. But Rumi is changing things up in a way its competitors are not, standing out as a video conferencing tool with a twist.

, building upon its legacy as Waitroom, aims to reshape the way users perceive remote collaboration by utilizing powerful AI capabilities and enhanced privacy measures.

The brainchild of tech entrepreneur and South African Shark Tank star Vinny Lingham, it is pushing against the slew of competitors in the crowded market, including giants like Zoom and Google Meet. How? By carving a distinct niche for itself, promising a fresher, smarter approach to virtual meetings — all while respecting user privacy.

In addition, while many remote collaboration tools strive for efficiency, Rumi is pushing the envelope. Using its dedicated AI Feed, its sophisticated algorithms present users with editable in-meeting summaries, highlighted action items, and insightful commentary.

Moreover, everything Rumi offers is available during the meeting itself in up to 20 different languages. The in-meeting access enables business professionals to prioritize genuine communication and innovative brainstorming while the AI Feed continuously provides intelligent insights in real time.

But Rumi’s standout focus is its pioneering emphasis on privacy, particularly timely in light of recent controversies around platforms like Zoom. In a data-driven era, safeguarding user information goes beyond being a technical detail. Instead, it’s a pledge and something Rumi is moving toward.

Rumi’s advanced “off the record” function embodies the privacy philosophy, granting users the ability to modulate the AI’s involvement and pause the recording during crucial conversations. So, while its AI capabilities allow users valuable insights and features, control always firmly rests in the user’s hands.

The value of post-meeting follow-ups cannot be understated. Often, proper communication after an important discussion determines the efficiency and outcome of a meeting. Rumi has also made moves to strengthen that process with post-meeting features. Not only can users instantly access a full recording of their discussions, but they can also effortlessly navigate to crucial segments with a simple click on the AI Feed.

Further amplifying a user-centric approach, Rumi ensures no participant is left out of the loop by emailing the entire AI Feed summary to all attendees. This commitment to transparency and inclusivity ensures that meetings are always accessible, available for review, and at the ready on the user dashboard.

“We’ve always recognized and championed businesses that push boundaries and chart new territories,” said Vinny Lingham, Co-founder & CEO of Rumi. “Rumi is not just another name in the list. Our forward-thinking features are designed not just to meet but exceed the benchmarks set by the big names in the industry.” 

As the momentum for remote work and virtual collaborations intensifies, platforms such as Rumi, which integrate advanced technology and cater meticulously to user needs, stand at the forefront of redefining the future landscape of business communication.
