New Web Application Helps Organizations Get the Most Out of Their Meetings
MeetingKing, a new web-based meeting management tool, helps keep meetings short and effective by making documentation and task follow-up easier than ever.
Tolland, CT – September 8 2011 – If you think that you spend too much time in inefficient meetings, Paracas Solutions invites you to participate in the free public beta of its latest application – MeetingKing. “Our research indicates that the core issues associated with ineffective meetings are poor preparation and limited follow-up”, says former WinZip president/CEO and Paracas founder Edwin Siebesma, “so we set out to create an integrated and intuitive web-based application to help meeting organizers keep notes, assign tasks and follow-up on previous assignments.”
MeetingKing is built around the natural workflow of meetings and conversations and turns short notes into up-to-date actionable information:
* Meeting agenda
* Professional meeting minutes
* Tasks and task reminders
* Powerful searchable archive
* And more
Users enter information easily and only once. MeetingKing translates information from the meeting invitation into an agenda automatically, and that agenda serves as the basis for taking notes. After the meeting, MeetingKing compiles complete meeting minutes and emails them to attendees. Users can assign tasks directly while taking notes and the dashboard and email reminders make sure that things actually get done. MeetingKing maintains the continuity of a sequence of meetings by adding all action items from prior meetings to the agenda of the next meeting. By adding tags to topics, users can find anything related to a certain project or department regardless of the meeting where it was discussed.
“Technology has brought us great tools”, says Siebesma, “but labor-intensive methods of setting an agenda via multiple emails, creating minutes in a separate word processor document, and “archiving” minutes and decisions in our inboxes are archaic.” MeetingKing combines all this into a single, online, and easily accessible tool that provides a central, integrated database of notes, decisions and tasks and their corresponding status.
MeetingKing is effective when only the organizer has an account, but additional user accounts allow for collaboration. All participants with an account can attach files and comment on notes and tasks in the agenda or minutes both before and after the meeting.
MeetingKing can be used for one-on-one meetings, team meetings, board meetings, client meetings, club meetings, etc., either face-to-face or remote. A free beta account may be set up at http://meetingking.com.
