The Profile Vancouver Launches New App for Members

We are thrilled to announce the release of our Mobile and Web Member App for The Profile Vancouver members.

Since our inception, we have tried to find a way to provide members a complete experience. While we have dabbled in MANY meeting rooms and communication apps, we were frustrated that while functional, the members’ experience was limited.

Our hope is that our new app allows our members a reliable focal point to meet their needs and to help redefine the future of work.
