Likelihood to Recommend

Azeus Convene

While my company, SELC Pro, doesn't technically use Convene (we get to see and observe the usage of different board portals via our existing clients who have them), we get to score big by giving practical advice and consultation.

It works very well for the preparation of meetings and is also very helpful during a meeting when there is a need to check earlier decisions or presentations. Communication around the board table is also easier if everybody can check a document on his/her device (rather than having everybody stare at a screen in the front of a conference room).

  • Preparing meetings and providing pre-read material is simpler and less time consuming than the old-fashioned paper-based approach
  • Flexibility is increased as it is easier to amend, change, add or update documents
  • The meetings’ participants can be reached and they can access their files anytime, anywhere and one can monitor whether the information aimed at them actually reached them
  • User-Friendly

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.

  • Changes with new versions should be well communicated in advance and consider in more detail the impact on existing boardrooms
  • Too expensive
  • Generally, more possibilities for customizing e.g. it should be possible to define security levels for access individually (why do I have to retype my email every time I synchronize?) or it should be up to the users whether and how they want to use labels (why can I only have one label per document?)

Alternatives Considered

Azeus Convene

I had tried many paperless meeting software providers, from the market leaders like Diligent and BoardVantage MeetX, the small players like BoardPaq, and to the midlevel players like BoardPad, BoardEffect, and Azeus Convene... Don't go for BoardPaq and BoardPad! They have lousy features and lousier support. BoardEffect is so-so. Diligent and BoardVantage are good, as long as you have money to burn. The best thing about Convene is that it has as rich features and aesthetics as the big boys -- BoardVantage and Diligent -- while costing at least 40% less! It's a clear winner for those who are practical.

Much easier to annotate documents, better User Interface which makes it very easy to access material discussed in earlier Meetings; also very easy to navigate between different topics on the agenda.

Return on Investment

Azeus Convene

  • Our non-affiliated recommendation of Convene has saved our clients a lot of dollars and resources. You have no idea how much it means for nonprofits, charities, and value-conscious companies and organizations to have a solution as good, yet as reachable, as Convene.

Sherpany

  • Management and Board of Directors save a lot of time.
  • Less paper, less of a mess.
  • Better quality of the meetings as everybody is on the same page and is able to quickly compare pieces of information with other statements or previous documents.
