Last Thursday, we brought 6 BeamPros to San Antonio to attend a meeting hosted by H-E-B, UTARI, and Operation Finally Home. The organizational meeting was the first step to solidify a collaboration that would dramatically improve the independence of wounded warriors. By enabling potential contributors from Sweden, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Arkansas, and California to "Beam" into the H-E-B Corporate Office, attendance was increased by over 35%.
Due to a heavy storm that impacted travels that day, some attendees (from Dallas) could not make it to the meeting. Luckily, they had the option to "Beam" in and everything turned out great. Remote attendees listened to talks, participated in breakout sessions, and presented their own plans via Beam. Collaborations formed among remote and physically present stakeholders.
One of our main goals at Suitable Technologies to bring new possibilities into the lives of disabled veterans through the Smart Homes Initiative. We envision Beams empowering these heroes to live more independent lives both in their homes and being remotely present in the workplace. Suitable Technologies is very excited about the journey ahead, and we look forward to serving those who have served our country.
