San Diego, CA, USA (PRWEB) April 24, 2007
Yon Software Corporation today announced the general availability of MeetingSense™ 2.0, the new version of Yon's groundbreaking meeting productivity solution. MeetingSense 2.0 completely optimizes meeting processes to help organizations successfully manage their meeting information and action items.
By offering powerful new features via enhanced intuitive interfaces, MeetingSense 2.0 increases meeting efficiency, ensures action item accountability, and drives more successful project outcomes.
New MeetingSense 2.0 features include:
- Microsoft Office 2007 Support
- Project Categories for Grouping Meetings
- Tracking of Action Items Across Projects
- Publish Action Items to a Central Repository
- Meeting Roll Call
"Since implementing MeetingSense, we have already seen dramatic time savings of about 5 hours per week, per employee," said Dean Brady, Sr. Director of Marketing for BFG Technologies. "I wouldn't dream of going to a meeting without MeetingSense, and with the feature enhancements included in MeetingSense 2.0, we're looking forward to an even greater increase in time savings and overall project success."
MeetingSense seamlessly integrates with current workflows to offer unparalleled ease-of-use. Once implemented by an individual or project group, MeetingSense deployments quickly grow to other groups and departments within the organization. This one-to-many viral affect is a common occurrence among MeetingSense customers.
In one example, the marketing department at BFG Technologies, a major U.S. based producer of premium NVIDIA 3D graphics cards and hardware, wanted to improve productivity, particularly with regard to cross-functional team meetings so they implemented MeetingSense. Through their use of MeetingSense, other groups were exposed to the benefits and soon MeetingSense spread throughout the organization.
The first time users start MeetingSense, the application automatically pulls in meetings from Microsoft Outlook and begins running without any further set up.
- Before a meeting, MeetingSense greatly enhances meeting preparation and execution by providing proper structure and meeting best practices.
- During a meeting, MeetingSense captures all of the essential information exchanged, including audio, notes, action items and much more.
- Following each meeting, organizers can customize and then instantly distribute critical information via brand-able meeting summaries.
Finally, all of this contextually linked meeting information is then archived into an intuitive dashboard that offers one-click access to historic meeting information, as well as the ability to track that information throughout its lifecycle.
"Our users - many of which are Fortune 1000 corporations - report significant, measurable productivity gains and decreases in the number of meetings needed per week only days after the solution is implemented." said Hannon Brett, Yon Software CEO and Founder. "With the release of MeetingSense 2.0, users will enjoy even greater productivity and efficiency gains that will fundamentally change the value proposition of their meetings forever."
Since MeetingSense launched in November 2006 Cisco, Hewlett-Packard, Chase, Pfizer, University of San Francisco, The National Institute of Health and more than 90 other organizations have leveraged MeetingSense to make their meetings more efficient and their business more productive.
