Technology solution provider Lumi has launched Meetoo, a real-time polling and messaging app that delegates can use to participate in events they attend, and that lets them share feedback anonymously.

The app can provide polling and messaging for meetings of more than 1,000 participants anywhere in the world, and can be used from any iOS or Android device, as well as on the mobile web on any web-enabled phone, tablet or computer.  

Meint Waterlander, spokesman for PwC, said: "We weren’t sure what to expect with Meetoo and were surprised by how interactive and exciting it made our meeting. The app enabled more than 1,100 PwC employees to participate during the meeting through live polling and messaging. Without Meetoo, it would have been impossible for us to collect and respond – in the moment – to the hundreds of comments and questions we received from attendees."

CEO of Lumi, Richard Taylor, added: "I am incredibly excited about the launch of Meetoo. I am sure many will recognise the scenario of being on a frustrating call or webinar where there are too many participants to use audio effectively so everyone has to mute. What should be a multi-way interactive discussion then becomes a one-way broadcast. Meetoo enables people in disparate locations to feel as if they are a part of the same meeting, allowing everyone to get involved in a way that is manageable for the meeting organiser or presenter. It’s a great way to make a large meeting feel more like an effective small meeting."
