Built on the site of a former RAF airfield in 1957, Bristol Airport is a commercial airport located at Lulsgate Bottom in North Somerset serving the city of Bristol, England, and the surrounding area. It is the United Kingdom’s seventh largest airport handling over 7 million passengers per annum with approvals in place to handle 10 million passengers per year.

 In an attempt to enable smart working practices using latest IT solutions, the organisation initially moved to a Cloud-based system, which took away the need to email meeting documents to the participants. The solution, however, failed to provide the full range of functionalities that they were looking for. Therefore, their search for a smarter solution continued until they found Convene.

 As explained by Rachel Powell, Executive Personal Assistant at Bristol Airport, “We looked at a number of products but Convene struck the price point balance for cost and features, so we purchased 15 licenses under a hosted agreement.

The implementation process and learning curve have been fairly easy. A couple of short sessions with internal users was enough to gain confidence in using the system,” informed Rachel.

Apart from the great value for money and ease of usage, Convene’s other noteworthy features like marking-up papers electronically with comments, a document library for storing additional information in a central location accessible by everyone, as well as an intuitive user interface, helped the organisation conduct their meetings in a more efficient and smarter manner. Convene offered everything that Bristol Airport always wanted from a digital solution.

Rachel also added that It has been so easy to use, we are looking at expanding its use for other projects and departments too.
