Your virtual meeting room
Sure, we have tried to use some software to immediately write down stuff during the meeting. But even the nicest tools and simplest templates don't seem to work.
This is because they are all text based. Spoken language already fails in many aspects for group communication. Written text mostly makes it worse. Veetup offers virtual meeting rooms, which every participant joins over the internet. These visual meeting rooms show all participants and (literally) where they are standing towards each other and towards discussion points. The latter can be options you have to agree on or tasks someone should take over. Many meetings can take place in these virtual meeting rooms alone and wipe a lot of intrusive events from your calendar. Others still take place in a real meeting, while veetup accompanies the process to avoid typical meeting pitfalls.
In our modern world, the issues covered in meetings are complex. The old "let's talk about this" is obsolete. Every participant needs to contribute. Every point needs to be considered. The problem is: can you listen to everyone at the same time?
But you can watch everyone's position at the same time! With veetup, visual thinking brings transparency and system to the complex connections in modern meetings. You do not need to wait until you can speak - or worse: never say what you think. Just show your current attitude all the time - envision a continuous, dynamic positioning going on. Follow the average agreement. Identify points with major agreement by their size. Distribute tasks easily.
An efficient telephone conference is even more elusive than a successful regular meeting. Attempts to find a solution focus since decades on video conferencing: video killed the radio star?
Not so much! Video never was and never will be the ultimate saviour for telecommunication in a group. Why try to mimic a face-to-face meeting? Visual agreement gives a telephone conference what it has been missing. You see who is speaking, how all other participants are reacting and where they are standing. In an intuitive way, which is suitable for group communication.
Sure, we are all grown up, we can talk about things and find an agreement. But why do the results from anonymous surveys always differ from this »official truth« we agreed on?
Veetup gives every meeting the option for anonymous positioning. In combination with visual agreement, where you do not have to take radical positions but which allows you to dynamically indicate even subtle tendencies. This will bring the »official truth« closer to the reality as you have ever experienced before.
How many good, complete and objective meeting protocols have you ever seen? Every meeting has such a protocol - in theory. In reality, there is often either no protocol at all or an insufficient one. And honestly: who wants to spend too much time with it?
Veetup logs the average visual agreement for every discussed point - automatically and continuously. You can access an automatically generated protocol any time. The recorded progression of all the visagreement shows what was decided for which reasons or who agreed to contribute to which task.
You participate in meetings, where your presence is not really required? Or which were unnecessary in the first place?
Show which topics in meetings are relevant for you by entering or leaving the discussion space. With veetup, you will participate in and organize fewer, but more efficient meetings.
Seamless task assignment
One of the most heard suggestions to improve meeting efficiency is to make sure that everyone walks away with clearly defined to-dos. Still, most of the meetings do not end in such an unanimously agreed list of action items.
Verbal discussion is a too simple means to reflect our modern complex social and hierarchical constellations. This is why task distribution not a suitable matter of »discussion«. In veetup, when someone posts a task, dynamic visual agreement guarantees that you end with a clear and unanimous »picture« of who-will-do-what. And this is automatically generated, protocoled and distributed to everyone, without anyone having to write it down.
Another task list? Another event planning calendar? How many of these do you need?
No, certainly not another one. Just a tool to help you organize yours. You can plan meetings in your existing calendar and easily import them to veetup. Once the meeting is over and tasks are defined, you can synchronize your tasks with your personal task list (currently supported: Google calendar).
Use your veet instead your feet
You are very busy and therefore it is often difficult to find a good date for your next meeting? Or even if a date can be found, you think constant interuption harms your work efficiency? But you also know from experience that mail conferencing is too chaotic to efficiently decide on complex issues?
In contrast to text communication, it is effortless to come to a majority decision with visagreement. In veetup, not everyone needs to be online at the same time. Everyone contributes when they are available. Still, a discussion remains flexible and is not as rigid as your conventional polling solution.
