During the last few decades we have created so many information sources and organically grown processes, that almost all information workers need to “drink from the information fire hose” on a daily basis. This needs to stop!
The average information worker receives an astonishing 170 mails and uses at least 5 additional information sources that push large amounts of data on a daily basis. We see a large potential of productivity going to waste on these trivial tasks. We do realize however that this problem can’t be solved with one single solution. By leveraging tablets, smartphones and powerful platforms as Microsoft Windows and SharePoint we believe we can solve this problem, app by app. It’s our mission to bring more productivity and happiness to information workers.
who are we
The roots of meetroo where planted in 2007 when Maarten Visser founded a new company based on his vision on cloud (utility) computing and information management. During this period he was co-owner and managing consultant at a Microsoft SharePoint System Integrator. Together with a hired developer he started the realization of a new kind of data migration software. In the following years SharePoint consultancy and running operations consumed most of his time, which resulted in the fact that a first product never got really finished.
After designing and building SharePoint collaboration solutions for almost 12 years in 2011, he realized the potential power SharePoint Apps combined with the new (touch) capabilities of tablets and smartphones. Together with interaction designer Bart Slappendel and software architect Marco Wenneker he designed the foundation for the meetroo platform. By actively experimenting for 12 months with Microsoft’s new design language named ‘metro,’ they build the websites, products and prototypes. Together with the input of communication designer Joris Visser they came up with the core principles of meetroo interactive dashboards.
