Beam Presence® Now Available at Microsoft Store

Beams are currently used by 40 percent of Fortune 50 companies

PALO ALTO - November 14, 2017 - Today, Suitable Technologies, Inc., creator of Beam devices, announced the debut of Beam Presence to select Microsoft Store locations in the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico and Australia. The Beams will provide enhanced communication for retail store management, as well as showcase Suitable Technologies’ innovation in future technologies to customers.

“This is an ideal arrangement for both parties as we recognize the need to design products that specifically address the challenges of remote work and regular travel in today’s global economy,” said Bo Preising, chief innovation officer of Suitable Technologies. “Beams complement other communication tools by giving the user the freedom to guide the remote device around, moving to conversations taking place in other areas of its environment without requiring assistance from people.”

As well as being part of the retail experience, Beam by Suitable Technologies can be seen at Microsoft Stores and purchased on Microsoft.com for $2140, which includes unlimited user licenses and 3 years of subscription and support.

The value of Beam Presence extends beyond business uses and into the home for personal connections and interactions as well. “This immersive technology allows parents to enjoy dinner with their families while traveling on business, or to say hello to their parents from anywhere with an internet connection. In a world of shrinking personal time, Beam provides a more humanlike interaction that normal videochat cannot achieve,” said Preising.
