Effective meetings through our computers and phones.

Kommentare: With Azeus Convene we had greater acceptance when it came to holding virtual meetings, since with the functions that this software has, it allowed us to maintain team collaboration in high quality standards, in each session we have happy participants, since we can specify any action at through our screen. We share documents and spend less on printing, sheets and ink, it is a software that has a high image resolution and good audio quality.

It is a good software to meet digitally with work members or clients, it is easy to create meeting invitations, the notifications are good, I like the digital whiteboard because we can write anything during the meetings, the audio quality is good, the system of surveys is excellent, shares the necessary documents digitally and ensures that our information is protected.

Nachteile:

Without a drawback, it is a software that due to its ease of use allows rapid deployment between departments, there are few problems and the scheduled meetings have been positive.

Our Experience of Convene

4,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: We introduced Convene in June 2019. Users quickly became familiar with the software. The value of this investment really showed when we were forced into office closures with the onset of the Covid Pandemic in March 2020. Our business decision making was able to continue and function effectively due to the flexibility available through use of Convene.
The biggest benefits are: savings in paper and print costs, saving in time spent producing and circulating meeting packs, ease of access to document library and previous meeting packs.

Vorteile:

It was easy to implement and simple to learn how to use. We introduced Convene initially to improve the efficiency of non-executive Board & Committee meetings. Very soon after implementation the Governance team identified more areas for using the software and it is now used for multiple internal management & working group meetings / information sharing.

Nachteile:

Nothing really. If we have had any problems, the service team have been very helpful.

Kommentare: Security for our board information, control over users, a single place for all of the information and and easy to use system which is cost effective.

Vorteile:

The software has clearly set out sections, is easy and intuitive to use, has very informative user guides and excellent customer support.

Nachteile:

This software doesn't do as much as as some of the other similar products out there. But it does enough (and in some cases more) that we need.

Easy to understand and use

Kommentare: I very much appreciate how Azeus Convene went out of its way to help us in procuring their product. Government requirements are very tedious for a foreign company joining our bidding but they complied.
Their support was also very helpful by providing training and presentations during the product evaluation.

Vorteile:

The software is easy to use, secure and not as pricey as its competitors. The reduced time to prepare and send out folios to the intended recipients were major factors in deciding to use this software. We are also excited about the new features being introduced to improve the software. Price

Nachteile:

I would like the software to have OCR capabilities so that documents scanned and uploaded can be annotated.

Transitioning to Digital Meetings with Convene has been helpful

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Convene has helped us save a lot of time

Vorteile:

Organizing meetings has been easier with the Agenda Builder of Convene. Letting people review and sign off on important documents has also been more efficient with the help of Convene. The software is also easy to use, you just need spend a little time to familiarize and learn how to use it.

Nachteile:

We just have a hard time following updates, and I wish we can customize the survey.

Convene - Easy to use and good value

4,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: Convene saves having to make up paper board packs and is easier to distribute the papers with the click of a button and most importantly securely. I can also see who has downloaded their papers.

Vorteile:

There are some really good features such as review room which we now use instead of Sharepoint which was more difficult to use. Convene is intuitive and meeting packs can be created quickly without having to convert papers to pdfs as the system does it easily. We also have single sign-on so its easy to access.

Nachteile:

The only downside is it probably dosen't look as polished as some of the more expensive competition but it does the job and is much easier to use than some of the better known competition and there ares ome really good features and tools included

Rich features and intuitive. Saves you at least 40% compared to BoardVantage and Diligent

5,0 vor 8 Jahren

Kommentare: Being President at SELC Pro LLC, as part of my consulting, I was sometimes asked to give recommendations to nonprofits and medium-level companies on what board portal provider would be the best for their internal and strategic operations. I had tried many paperless meeting software providers, from the market leaders like Diligent and BoardVantage MeetX, the small players like BoardPaq, and to the midlevel players like BoardPad, BoardEffect, and Azeus Convene... Don't go for BoardPaq and BoardPad! They have lousy features and lousier support. BoardEffect is so-so. Diligent and BoardVantage is good, as long as you have money to burn. The only clear and concrete advantage that Diligent has over Convene is that they have unlimited individual user training. But Convene is so intuitive and easy-to-use that you don't need to go beyond their free first 4 user/administrator training sessions. Convene is a hidden gem. It has as rich features and aesthetics as BoardVantage and Diligent, while costing at least 40% less! It's a clear winner for those who are practical. You have no idea how much it means for nonprofits, charities, and value-conscious companies and organizations to have a solution as good, yet as reachable, as Convene.

Convene was the first options that worked for our Board

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Vorteile:

The Board of our organization was very skeptical towards any online tool that would help facilitate the online meetings, especially having in mind the usual prices. Already after the second board meeting, when all of them got used to basic functionalities, Convene is now irreplaceable. Document management is the most beneficial for our Board, as we upload documents prior to the meetings, go through them during the meeting, comment, change content on the go, and the voting function is very efficient.

Nachteile:

To extract the maximum from a Convene meeting, you need to have either two monitors, or to use two devices - one for Convene and the other for MS Teams/Zoom or other video conferencing tool.

Smooth Experience for upper management

4,0 vor 6 Monaten

Vorteile:

The document management and collaboration tools have been extremely helpful to our leadership team in promoting informed discussions and accelerating decision-making. The first and most crucial function is offering great security so that papers can be shared and stored. It also offers distant attendees in management meetings a better connected experience with the option to follow along with presentations in real-time. Additionally, setting up a resource folder for adding pertinent papers is really simple. Instead than scouring hard drives for documents when the board needs to consult them, they can just access the resource folder.

Nachteile:

As of right now, I haven't noticed any negative aspects; it's been working perfectly for me.
