Otta's take on Around

Sam Franklin headshot

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

As more companies adopt work-from-home options, remote workers require better technology to allow them to work productively and collaboratively with their wider team. Around helps fill this market gap.

Around is a platform that allows remote and in-house employees to collaborate in real-time and communicate effectively through voice and video calls. Its unique audio technology ensures employees can communicate either in the same room or across the world with no lags or echo. It also utilizes AI technology to frame faces on video calls, so employees no longer need to worry about distracting backgrounds.

Acquired by the $17.5 billion tech company Miro in June 2022, the combined capabilities of the companies fuels its ability to compete against major digital communication companies such as Zoom.
