TeamViewer®, the global pioneer of remote control and online collaboration software, today announced a remarkable milestone in the company’s history: As of today, the TeamViewer flagship product has been activated on more than 1,000,000,000 devices worldwide.
While this figure per se is extremely impressive, it is one of many statistics which demonstrate the ubiquity of TeamViewer. The software has been translated into more than 30 languages and is being sold in over 200 countries of the world. There are more than 200 million TeamViewer users worldwide and more than 20 million connected devices at any given time, and the software is downloaded more than 10 million times per month.

They use the software to connect for remote support, home office working, remote control, online collaboration and many other critical use cases.
A key factor in this amazing success story is the Freemium approach that TeamViewer adheres to: The software is free for private use whilst business users need to buy a license. This has promoted the viral spread of TeamViewer and generated a loyal user base that is not only quick to download the latest version of the software, but also happy to provide valuable feedback. This way, TeamViewer not only ensures the highest possible quality standards, but also is able to get a well-rounded picture of how the market responds to its product. More than 15,000 users follow TeamViewer on Twitter, 48,000 followers on Google +, and TeamViewer has more than 2 million fans on Facebook.

With regards to the global distribution, there is only a very limited group of companies with comparable success,” says Dr. Gunnar Clausen, Partner at Simon-Kucher & Partners Strategy & Marketing Consultants, a global management consulting firm with 800 employees in 29 offices worldwide.
“I cannot begin to describe how proud I am to be a part of this amazing group of people,” comments Andreas König, CEO at TeamViewer. “From day one, TeamViewer has been about helping others; whether it is a tech savvy kid straightening out the computer problems of their computer illiterate parents thousands of miles away, or a knowledgeable IT supporter maintaining a desktop computer of a user on the other side of their office building. We will continue to work hard to be the first choice when it comes to connecting users to the people and to the devices that matter to them.”
