We have tried three different meeting apps – including iBabs – but Easy2Meet offers the best overview and smoothest operation by far. - Reuansy Rosalia (Foundation Brisa board member)
Rosalie’s search for a good meeting app started last year: “Our board met twice a month in those days. Per meeting we printed out an average of 50 A4 documents per person. Seeing that we have 9 board members it meant a lot of unnecessary waste of paper. I started looking for an intelligent solution for our problem. Because of the high costs as well as for the environment.”
“Eventually, we tried out three meeting solutions. A colleague initially chose the traditional market leader because she was already familiar with this meeting tool. But during the test phase she came to the conclusion that Easy2Meet meets our conditions best: it’s very important to us that we have a good overview and that the app operates smoothly. Something which Easy2Meet does better than any other option.”
“The implementation of Easy2Meet was smooth and fast. For some board members the switch from paper to digital was a bit worrying but in practice these board members too were quickly used to it as well. And is our contact at Easy2Meet is always prepared to answer any questions we might have. E-mails are also responded to quickly.”
“We all have a tablet we use during meetings. All meeting documents are grouped together so there’s no need for last minute print-outs. This enables us to start right away. By now we also take minutes in the app, which is easily done under the agenda items in the convenient template. We all have an Apple Pencil which we use for making digital annotations. It’s, of course, also possible to type but this is easier for us. Approving is done at the click of a button. Meeting with Easy2Meet is simply very convenient. We’re happy we made the switch.”
