We make it easy for teams to capture, organize, and share a lot of what needs to be discussed before the meeting even begins.
Boulder, CO (PRWEB) December 03, 2015
PeakApps Inc. has just released new web and mobile versions of its popular app, Peak Meetings, to help business teams have shorter, sharper meetings.
Most people just have “a meeting” — typically a formless event with no specific goal and often lacking even an agenda. People show up to talk, presuming everyone understands why they’re there.
Even with an agenda, it’s easy for a meeting to veer off-course, for people to hijack the discussion, for the meeting to run long, and for it to accomplish little or nothing.
Peak Meetings solves these problems by providing built-in frameworks for capturing and organizing ideas and insights before a meeting, and focusing each meeting on an explicit goal. That structure then helps keep the meeting on track and prompts attendees to think deeper, and it makes follow-up a snap.
There are agenda-building apps out there, but Peak Meetings goes beyond just an agenda and notes. With built-in templates for 11 different types of meetings, and the ability to create custom meeting types as well, Peak Meetings is a serious tool to help teams uncover insights, accelerate discussions, and achieve better results.
"What happens before and during the meeting is what we care about — not who brought the donuts or where everyone sat," says John Windsor, CEO of PeakApps. "We make it easy for teams to capture, organize, and share a lot of what needs to be discussed before the meeting even begins. That moves the discussion forward, so when people do come together, their efforts are much more focused, efficient, and effective. It's a huge win for everyone."
The greater focus and critical thinking that Peak Meetings encourages will squash a lot of meetings that should never be called. There is also a fun tool on the Peak Meetings website that gives people ammunition for avoiding deadly meetings — or helps them keep their meetings out of the swamp of mediocrity. It's called “Do We Really Need This Meeting?” and it's available for free at https://peakmeetings.biz/needthis.html
Peak Meetings offers both a web app and free native apps for iPhone and Android. A subscription is required to use the service, but a free 30-day trial is available at https://peakmeetings.biz
