In 2015, our cofounders and cousins Ben and Michael, set out on a mission to create a community platform that would go beyond crowded comment threads, annoying mass emails and outdated intranets. “We wanted to create an interactive tool designed to help humanize the workplace,” says Cofounder Ben Comstock. “For mid to large size companies, using business communication tools like Slack, Google Forms, and email for non-business matters, is not efficient. They need a more scalable tool."
The two cofounders, developed the product and company while living on opposite sides of the United States, Ben from his parent’s spare bedroom in North Carolina, and Michael from his basement in Oregon.
After signing Harvard University as their first client, OfficeAccord has gained popularity as a leader in employee engagement and community software.
