As you may have noticed, at Anchor AI we are huge fans of the works of Mike Schur (Mose from The Office, wrote on The Office, created Parks & Rec, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Rutherford Falls, etc.). The guy is talented and makes heartwarming, hilarious sitcoms.
So among one of my frequent rewatches of The Office (I’m watching The Office, Rachel is watching Parks & Rec, Jon is watching Brooklyn Nine-Nine), it was only inevitable that we would find parallels in these worlds we love and applications of Anchor AI. My most recent Anchor AI use case was discovered in the truly excellent Season 3 episode of The Office, “Beach Games”, and the plight of our favorite secretary Pam Beesly.
Early in the episode Michael approaches Pam with a very important task – he wants Pam to take notes and keep track of the entire day in the hope of seeing who is worthy of holding Michael’s “World Best Boss” mug and becoming manager after he moves onto New York. Pam laments her role throughout the episode, while also disappointing Michael with her paltry notetaking efforts.
“I thought we were just having fun at the beach.”
“I have the most boring job in the office, why wouldn’t I have the most boring job on beach day?”
“Nothing better than a day full of sun, sand, and diligent note-taking.”
“Hey Pam did you get that down?” “Like everything I said and everything they did… write it down so you don’t forget it!”
Here’s the thing, we’re not going to say we invented this product for the sole purpose of solving Pam’s issues, but we did invent it to empower the Pam’s of the world. Anchor AI can meet the needs of even the dysfunctional Dunder Mifflin employees. Had they been using Anchor AI throughout Beach Day, Pam would have been able to enjoy beach day on her own terms without being forced to cater to the ridiculous requests of Michael. And Michael would have also received everything he wanted – a complete record of everything everyone said so nothing is forgotten.
Anchor AI is built for the purpose of empowering employees to achieve more than Pam would even dream of. We want to be the companion of overworked employees. A confidence-building backup and meeting augmentation product that allows you to focus fully and provide valuable input, while also having everything recorded to reference later.
With searchable transcriptions, a library of tasks from meetings past, and action items waiting for you, Anchor AI will guarantee you don’t have the most boring job in the office and can work your way to enjoying a day full of sun and sand, without the diligent note-taking.
