In an office environment, it’s easy to gauge availability with visual cues like a closed door, headphones, eye contact or a welcoming gesture. However, these cues are missing in virtual environments, making team building difficult.
Raj and his co-founders, Rolf Rando and Jag Srawan, set out to provide virtual signals that replicate those in-real-life (IRL) cues and to combat the two biggest problems common to virtual offices: loneliness and the lack of ad-hoc conversation.
Loop Team uses automatic status updates, rich profiles, daily photos, avatars, and live conversations to solve these problems. Team members can easily see who is online and seamlessly broadcast or join conversations that build team spirit and spark creativity.
