OnBeep Is Now Orion

Real-Time Voice Communication Company Unveils New Name

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 21, 2015) - Today, OnBeep, the real time voice communication company, announced that it is now Orion. The company, founded by Jesse Robbins, Greg Albrecht and Roger Wood, started in 2013 and makes elegant accessories to keep groups connected. It debuted its first product, Onyx, in 2014.

"When we were designing Onyx, we were inspired by constellations," Founder & CEO Jesse Robbins says. "We wanted our name to reflect our goals for the future, and we felt that the name 'Orion' more accurately captured that vision."

Orion's debut connected accessory, Onyx, is a lightweight device that allows groups to collaborate without having to look down at their phones. It can be clipped to a shirt, jacket or bag strap so users can enjoy heads-up communication virtually anywhere. The Orion app (available for iOS and Android) gives users a new, simple way to connect at the push of a button, letting anyone create and manage groups on the fly and share their location on a map.

"At Orion, we see people as stars in the sky. Each person is both unique and brilliant -- but so much greater when connected to their own constellations," says Robbins. "Our products, starting with Onyx, are designed for people to collaborate beautifully."

The Orion team is a diverse group of 30 designers, engineers and artists who previously worked at Apple, Amazon, Google, Nextel, Reebok, Ralph Lauren, Splunk, iRobot, Motorola, Chef, Ekso Bionics and Meyer Sound.
