Beam began as a solution to our own frustrations with remote work. Despite the variety of existing technologies like email, chat, and videoconferencing, we found that our remote team members felt isolated, things got lost in translation, and calling multiple meetings for daily work was disruptive. Then it hit us: What if our distributed team could just be together?
Collaboration would be so much easier, and our team would be much more efficient and culturally cohesive. We thought, surely if we felt this pain, others were feeling it, too. Inspired, we imagined what effortless smart presence would look like, and set to work creating it.
