Project Overview

Cumming’s Role
IWMS Implementation Partner & Project Management Fort Point, a Cumming company, is a channel partner with iOffice, meaning we can sell and implement their software to clients, while working with our iOffice contacts to customize the program to meet our client’s specific needs. Therefore, iOffice was our partner during this implementation.

The Purpose Of This Project
Beam Therapeutics is a biotech company specializing in precision gene editing based in Cambridge, MA. Prior to the start of this project, they were a startup company with just four people on staff. Despite their small size, they were incredibly forward-thinking and wanted to implement strategies and systems that would support a high rate of future growth and expansion. Eventually, Beam added a Director of Operations who formalized this effort and engaged Fort Point to strategize on facility solutions that would scale with their future, expected growth. They decided to go forward with implementing iOffice, an integrated workplace management system (IWMS) that seamlessly integrates a range of workplace functions into a single, easy-to-use interface. This was incredible foresight on their part, as their team now numbers more than 300 people, spanning multiple facilities.

Project Outcome
iOffice has enabled Beam to expand their operations seamlessly as they continue to grow exponentially. It has also proven to be a valuable tool to support employees returning to work by promoting mobility and wayfinding with the mobile app. We continue to support Beam’s safe return to work and maintain the occupancy and floor plan data.
