2020 has been a weird year for everyone. The world has experienced a whole new set of challenges and the professional fields have not been spared…
As fresh-out of school engineers, we believe that our current ways of working are fundamentally flawed but evolving.
Flawed because they focus on hard constraints: an office, a piece of hardware, security limitations... But evolving because the cloud opened a thousand doors and people are now starting to work remotely.
We want a product that could bridge all of these gaps:
No matter the place, the hardware, the software, or your objectives, you should always be able to work in the same productive environment.
It starts with four basic considerations, and it keeps building up through hundreds of interviews we had during the past year:
The one common denominator between every device we use is the internet browser: it is a key element shared in work, research and free-time !
We asked ourselves “How does one access the computing power they need in a single webpage?”. From there, we followed a few simple principles:
We are building Flaneer to solve these issues all at once:
Bring power, simplicity, security, efficiency and collaboration in the same place: A single web app.
The process is straightforward:
If you’d rather work with teammates, you can join their session and collaborate seamlessly. Talk with each other, annotate each other’s work live, send snapshots…
And all of this while using low powered devices that you almost never have to renew because the actual machines doing the computations are in data centers with top of the line power management and hardware usage efficiency throughout the whole life-cycle of the components.
Flâner, in French, means to get out and stroll, to go see friends and have a nice time, to be relaxed and enjoy every step of the way. That’s what we want to do: we want to make work an enjoyable process again.
It’s time to change the way you work for the better.
You can also come work with us.
