Customized Placeware

Walkabout can be easily configured for a variety of remote teams, business models and workflows

Walkabout Workplace creates a “place” where teams can work remotely every day to connect with their colleagues and friends. Walkabout includes visual “presence” features like a heads-up display map where users can see, in real time, who is “in the office” and what their status is (i.e., available, busy, at lunch, etc.). Users are also able to spontaneously connect through voice, chat, screen sharing and video, and can even teleport from office to office to meet with their colleagues. 

An Unmatched Solution

Walkabout lover Mark Huckabee shares his experience:

“I have been using Walkabout Workplace for the last 6 months and I must say it is the most natural remote working solution I have ever seen.

I’ve been a remote worker for 20 years (quite a bit before the current situation everyone is in). I’ve always felt that I missed out on “watercooler” and “drive by” conversations. I never know when anyone else is open to an impromptu meeting nor do they know when I am…”

When we do get together on calls and video conferences there’s no context. Is this a casual discussion? A formal presentation? A training session? You need clues to moderate your behavior and they aren’t there.

Early in the workday or late I never know if people are still available. Are they ready to work with me or are they off getting their kids ready for school? Walkabout Workplace solves all of this. I can immediately see who is “in” the office. I can see if they are open to being disturbed or not.

I can see that Sally and Masood are in Keisha’s office and I might want to join in. I can “go” to her office and share my latest work on our proposal with them. I can see that Jerry is teaching a class and Doreen is briefing the Board so I should not disturb them. If Doreen sends me a chat and asks me to join her in the presentation I know immediately that in the board room I should be more formal.

You can’t get any of this with Skype or Zoom or WebEx or GoToMeeting. For a remote worker Walkabout Workplace provides the ultimate “context” for everything you do.

An Efficient & Unique Place

Matthew Hiller, President & Founder of TrekSecure shares his experience: 

After trying almost every online meeting tool, we are excited to now be using Walkabout Workplace exclusively for our online meetings and for our collaboration within TrekSecure.

It’s also a more personal experience. It’s remarkable how everything combines to create an environment that makes remote meetings and collaboration so much more efficient and pleasant for users.

I highly recommend taking a look at Walkabout. It’s fantastic and we’re excited to have moved into our own unique office space.

The Results Are In

People that are connected to their distributed team and the company they work for end up being happier, more engaged, and most importantly, highly productive. Walkabout enables business agility through engaged teams; and the result is lower attrition and higher profitability.  Walkabout turns every home into an office.
