Presence as a Service


Based on a concept envisioned by one of the founders, PaaS enables users to proactively alert others of their “Presence,” i.e., their availability and willingness to interact or be interrupted. This application will be expanded under the Platform for use not only for work or family-related Presence (“don’t interrupt me”; “I’m available for this type of interruption”; “I’m available to all personal contacts but not work contacts”), but to enhance and facilitate far-reaching effects on social Presence and social media (“Eric is available for one hour to discuss travel, wine, and food with all of his contacts who have identified similar likes”).


As a result of the stay-at-home work schedules necessitated by the pandemic, a recent study shows that 83 percent of employers now report that the transition to remote work has been successful for their company. This number indicates a significant increase compared to the 73 percent success rate noted before the pandemic.

More employees say they are more productive now than they were before the pandemic (34 percent vs. 28 percent ). In addition to this, more executives concur; more than half (52 percent) say employee productivity has increased, compared to 44 percent who say productivity has remained the same since the pre-pandemic era.
