Azeus Convene

Azeus Convene's security and collaboration features can create a great business case to introduce technology to the executive management team for board-related matters, especially if they are currently using a 'pen and paper' system. Would recommend for larger companies / large executive teams with busy schedules that find it difficult to collaborate.

  • Document Management -- very easy to add attachments and push out
  • Meeting Scheduling -- very easy to add meetings and get RSVPs to make sure we have a quorum
  • Historical data -- storing of historical documents and meeting minutes is super easy.

Cons

Azeus Convene

  • Limited individual training sessions - The only clear and concrete advantage that Diligent has over Convene is that they have unlimited individual user training. But Convene is so intuitive and easy-to-use that you don't usually need to go beyond their free first 4 user/administrator training sessions.

  • Voting -- there should be a mechanism for board members to vote through the system
  • Minutes -- meeting minutes should automatically be generated based on attendance and online voting
  • Public Facing Page -- we need to publish our agendas and minutes on our website. I would like it if there was a way we can put links on our website to BoardBookit.

Other than initial setup, we haven't really needed support. I do wish that they would roll out more features.

Alternatives Considered

Azeus Convene

As our Board only had confidence in pen-and-paper prior to this implementation, the benefits are obvious (higher security, better collaboration, remote enablement)

  • Board meetings are more organized.
  • It makes me, as the Executive Director, present a professional image during board meetings.
  • BoardBookit works particularly well when board members are not all in the same room for meetings.
