Read about how Convene supports a number of prestigious organisations to improve administrative efficiency, save paper, and enhance your organisation's Governance practices.
Amadeus Capital Partners identified a need to streamline their Board meetings, and to find alternative ways of handling vital data. We spoke to Rob Butterworth, Head of IT, to find out more about how Convene has rung in the changes.
"We found Convene really quick and intuitive to use. It was the functionality that swayed us. It did exactly what we wanted."

We spoke to Xristina Giannopoulou at Piraus Bank about how Convene has improved operational effectiveness and streamlined administrative processes.
"We find the Document library particularly useful; it is great to have the ability to make annotations or add comments on existing documents, and to be able to log action items to be followed up on subsequent meeting agendas. For remote working, Convene is proving to be very beneficial since you can access the platform on a range of offline devices, so it’s possible to work effectively no matter where you are or what time it is."

Chris Spanias, Solution Architect at Tesco UK, talked to us about why Tesco chose Convene and how it has helped them save time and money.
'Once they switched over to Convene, our board stopped using paper. Now the only cost left is the license per person, per year. The study found that we save so much money on printing and paper alone that Convene has almost paid for itself every year, which is quite impressive."

We spoke to Afonso Cardoso de Menezes, Company Secretary of Bison Bank, in Portugal to discuss the ways Convene has helped the bank move from a more traditional approach towards the digital sphere.
"Bison Bank underwent large scale transition from its position as a country-specific bank, to one with a strong international focus. With Convene, information is now accessible to board members internationally in an instant... in essence, Convene facilitates and encourages the vital international collaboration which is critical for success."

Arbuthnot wanted to make their board packs and documents more accessible, so they chose Convene. Wendy Tidd from Arbuthnot shared how Convene has helped support their busy meeting schedule.
"There has definitely been a reduction in paper use and printing costs. We also like the Notes and Annotations feature where one person is able to annotate a document which can then be viewed by everyone. We like the fact that information is accessible and visible to all attendees."

The ICSA did release a calculator a year or two ago which you can run your figures through. These are then processed, and the system breaks down the time and materials spend. Convene has saved LME something in the region of 40-50K per annum. If we had to print and bind, it would be saving us closer to 100K per annum.
We have a green initiative at the LME. There is now a green working group in operation here, and actions are being taken to reduce print volumes among others.
