Nadia Kühn, Business Partner- Corporate Business Support and James Mansfeild Sturgess, Technology Strategist at Buckinghamshire County Council talk about how Convene made their board’s transition from paper to digital meetings, seamless and secure.
"Using Convene has enabled us to drive innovation, not only in terms of the print savings but also in the style and culture of our Board meetings. The iPad app also means that we can have instant access to both current and past papers wherever we are, which fits perfectly with the agile ways of working that we are developing”
Sarah Ashmead, One Council Board, Member and Director of Strategy & Policy.

We spoke to Elizabeth Morrison, Board and Corporate Support Assistant at The Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service (CAFCASS), on the business case for switching to Convene.
'We looked at BoardPad, BoardVantage, BoardEffect and VirtualBoard but Convene was the best value for money compared to all the other providers... Convene’s security and encryption was a key factor too because our documents can contain highly sensitive information so it’s important our data is secure... It was really clear that Convene was the best value for money compared to all the other providers.'

'We particularly like the way the access controls mean that private papers and confidential information can remain secure and in the right hands.'
This is because Convene's granular access control and document sharing allow for confidential feedback and performance ratings from multiple stakeholders all in one place, either in one-to-one appraisals or 360 reviews?
Using Convene, pulling together papers and feedback prior to the appraisal can be done efficiently, capturing feedback during the live appraisal saves time and improves accuracy, and getting feedback and sign-off after the appraisal means the entire process can be completed securely and saved in one place.
