AWS has acquired meeting productivity startup Do to boost Chime

By : |March 9, 2017 0

Amazon’s new communications suite for businesses may only be a month old, but Amazon is already devising ways to enhance the product that it offers through Amazon Web Services (AWS). The company has acquired Do.com, a startup that specialises in making meetings more productive with services like managing notes and creating reports for those who were not there, as well as organising the meetings themselves.

Interestingly, the acquisition happened back in February only. Though on February 15 (two days after Chime launched), Do announced it has been acquired and would close its service but kept the buyer’s name under cover.

The recent revelation comes through TechCrunch that was tipped off by a reader who intimated the publication that Do’s LinkedIn profile has been updated and now carries a note reading: “Now a part of Amazon Chime.” The news was also confirmed through the profile’s of its employees that carried the same note.

Do.com was founded by Jason Shah in 2013 to help enterprises make their meetings more productive. Do have raised about $2.4 million from a long list of marquee investors including Salesforce, Sherpa Capital, and Mark Pincus among others.

Last year, Amazon acquired Biba to add video-conferencing to Chime. Apparently, that deal too was kept a secret but today as we know Biba site redirects its users to Chime.
