Nuroum Vision: Clean Hybrid Work for Every Team

Why NUROUM is Born

NUROUM is started to help bring teams together for better collaboration. Due to covid-19 and global workforce distribution, the way teams collaborate has shifted a lot. Hybrid collaboration from everywhere including work desk, conference room, home office and on-the-go has been the major paradigm.

However, technology has not been adapted to the new paradigm and old dogs in the field are not innovating enough to address all the new issues. Hybrid collaboration across different countries and time zones has been painful without proper tools. Different fragmentation of work paradigm requires different technology. For example, you need absolutely different tools if you work from conference room than if you work from home office.

Therefore, we started NUROUM to re-invent Hybrid Work with our own philosophy.

  1. We embrace standards and eco-system. Our tools are designed to fill the holes between platforms such as Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Google Meet, WebEx, BlueJeans and your personal PC. We use industry standards such as USB, HDMI, MJPEG and HEVC. We believe that standards and eco-system will benefit the whole human being.

  2. We respect market fragmentation and customer needs. Teams have their own way of working and we respect that so as to create a suite of tools optimized for that specific way of working, such as work desk, home study, on-the-go and conference room.

  3. We embrace new technology to have a better hybrid work experience. For example, we have eight algorithm engineers working four years on audio digital signal processing and deep learning to remove noise and echo and this technology has been adopted in our suite of products.

  4. We honor the minimum and climate friendly way to our product design. We use raw materials as much as we can to reduce things such as painting. We minimize the features in the product that is required to address the market fragmentation. We don't over-spend, yet we don't less-spend.

How We Think of Future Work

First of all, humans are social animals to some extent. Lots of employees are experiencing depression due to work from home. We don't think full WFH across the entire organization are beneficial to the whole society. Face-to-face communication is still believed to help communicate better.

However, WFH has its own benefits. There will be less time spent on commuting, less money spent on gas and more time spent with family. Lots of employees are reluctant to return to office.

Post-covid, we think that C-level management needs to entice employees back to office. Employees are not that willing to be in the office every day. Hybrid work will be the ultimate solution with a couple of days at the office and the other days at home. To better the experience, new tools will be needed.

How We Innovate to React to the Future Work

We start with small and concrete things. We think that the major things to solve are audio, video and writing. These three things constitute the basics of hybrid work. Teams need to talk to each other, see each other and write to each other for better understanding. So we start from two dimensions. First dimension is hybrid work scenario and the second dimension is collaboration fashion such as audio, video and writing.
