Beam began as a response to our own frustrations with working remotely. 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 if we felt this pain, surely others were feeling it too. Inspired, we imagined what an effortless solution would look like, and set to work creating Beam.
Our instincts proved to be true. As soon as the first Beams drove out of their docking stations, people found the benefits we’d imagined plus many more – saving money; achieving sustainability goals; and perhaps best of all, finding more time for friends and family.
