  • Clarion Housing Association - Vicky Boner

    Clarion Housing Association

    We spoke to Scott Hyde, Senior governance Manager at Clarion Housing Association, to find out how Convene has helped them have more efficient meetings.

    Convene’s Audit Trail feature gives us the ability to see who has downloaded and viewed each document which is especially useful. The Document Library is also particularly useful and it’s easy to edit. It’s really helpful when you have to submit papers at the last minute which everyone has to do at times! The fact that you can add or remove a paper without having to republish the whole pack is also beneficial. We were impressed by how fast the file upload was!
