In the distributed world of work, employees often feel disconnected from their fellow team members and miss the serendipity, creativity and energy that come from in-person interactions. Monthly or quarterly team bonding activities are, for many remote employees, a poor substitute for the boost they get from daily or weekly office culture. From drawn-out messaging conversations to the pressure of video calls, online communication can be severely fatiguing.
Roam is a cloud-based collaboration platform that can be customized to meet the needs of all distributed teams, so people can meet and truly connect regardless of where they are. The Roam Cloud HQ provides a unique visualization of an organization’s workspace—the floor plan can be designed just like a real-world office, with a bird’s eye view of whose “office” is where, who’s in, who’s out, whose door is locked, and who’s in a meeting room with others. Roam aims to reduce the friction of online interaction by inviting personality, visibility and individual connectivity to distributed work. We’ve seen the power of this breakout platform firsthand and are excited to experience how Roam will continue to disrupt a new era of working.
