    Sophie Black, Assistant Registrar & Secretary to the Council's Office, shares the intuitive functionality and scalability of Convene.

    "Since Convene was initially rolled out within our institutional governance division, we have been involved in what can best be described as an extended implementation... We can definitely see the potential to make Convene available to the whole university and are looking forward to extending it out and to encourage increased collaboration. This will include the ability to log in remotely and to harness more flexibility around remote working in general."

  • Dr Andrew Young, COO - LSE

    London School of Economics (LSE)

    "Many of us at LSE are now moving towards being more agile in the way that we work."

    In that respect, Convene is not only improving the way we deal with the paperwork, but it’s actually improving the way we work. I am now more readily able to work from home or from the railway station than I was before.

    My colleagues were using different combinations of tools to work paperless. Initially, I had tried and failed. But now, using Convene I have the vast majority of my work on my device, whether it's council meetings or not. From a one-to-one catch-up with a director to a department conference, I am working from the Convene platform entirely."

    Nadine Lewycky, Governance Officer at Queen Mary University, gave us her insight into why they went with Convene, the implementation process and how it gave the Governance team their valuable time.

    "From an administrator perspective, we were after something that would make it easier for us to manage papers coming in, update the versions, manage publications, and to collate documents into a simple, single agenda. Most importantly, we wanted the system to make the process easier for us and not an additional job".

    Birmingham City University

    We spoke to Helen Matthews, Assistant University Secretary, about how Convene has helped Birmingham City University with their move towards sustainability.

    With Convene the process is so much quicker. We only implemented Convene in November 2018, but our costs are already much lower, and we are incredibly enthusiastic about its functionality. We often find ourselves discovering new features over and above the ones we already know. We can’t imagine going back to copying again!
