In 2015 two startup cofounders in New York approached us to help them imagine up and bring to fruition a web application that would help executives be more effective doing remote-work. They did not have any technical resources, product specifications, or investors, other than themselves.
We hosted the founders in our offices for a one week vision camp where we were able to mock up a complete virtual office that created rich in-office experiences. In the six months that followed we built that vision into a fast, scalable, reliable app which is still in use today by tens of thousands of customers across the world. That application is Walkabout Office.
The cloud web application provides branded immersive office experiences, instant-on reliable video conferencing for up to 50 participants at a time, a Slack-like rich-text chat app, a heads-up display showing live locations for all coworkers, and a virtual guest experience for visitors. The real-time interactive floor plan empowers spontaneous interactions among distributed team members.
