Suitable Technologies Opens First Beam Store

New Beam Store at 425 University Avenue in Palo Alto Gives Consumers a Place to Experience Smart Presence Systems First-Hand

PALO ALTO, CA–(Oct 31, 2014) – Suitable Technologies, Inc.® https://suitabletech.com, the company that brings people together with Smart Presence technology, today announced their new Beam® Store located in the heart of Silicon Valley at 425 University Avenue in Palo Alto. The store provides a fun way to experience the Beam Smart Presence System first-hand. The space opens the Smart Presence experience to anyone visiting Palo Alto by engaging the community, and connecting long-distance family and friends via Beam. The Beam Store will be operated completely by remote staff sitting as far away as New York City and Sydney.

Currently, those interested in telepresence devices such as Beam do not have a convenient location to visit and experience the technology. While friends of Suitable Technologies’ clients have access to the technology, sharing that experience might not be an option because Beam devices might be located in private offices. Beam helps people to do amazing things, see places they’ve never seen, and visit locations across the world in a fraction of the time. The Beam Store will beam in people from around the world to the Bay Area to facilitate connections and the sharing of ideas with ease.

“We’re excited to announce the opening of our first Beam Store as a place where you can come and experience Beam for yourself,” said Scott Hassan, CEO, Suitable Technologies. “The benefits are numerous — everything from reducing the carbon footprint to easing the work-life balance. We feel strongly about improving quality of life and increasing face-to-face interactions, and further exposing Beam is a way to do that. We’d love for everyone to come check it out — even if you’re not in the area, you can just beam in.”

The Beam Store creates awareness and challenges people to rethink communication. Suitable Technologies is excited to share Beam with the community, for example, by facilitating face-to-face visits between local students whose family lives abroad.

Beginning November 15, 2014, the Suitable Technologies Beam Store will also feature a monthly events calendar that is accessible to everyone via G+ and Facebook. Those who are interested in visiting the store in person can find it at 425 University Avenue in Palo Alto, California. People who live remotely can beam into the store by simply scheduling a BeamPro Test Drive.

Suitable Technologies will host trick-or-treaters on Friday, October 31 until 8:00 p.m. Pacific Time for special Halloween activities. The Beam Store will be open every day of the week between 10 a.m. and 9 p.m. Pacific Time.
