Paul Phillis Kirk, ICT Business Partner – Relationship Manager, talks about how he implemented a digital meeting solution in Convene for YHG’s board of directors.
"Convene has also significantly reduced the time and resources required to create meeting reports and board packs.

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!
Simulating your Management, Board & Executive team meetings when you're all in different locations can be tricky. Convene can help.
