Working on a team requires many moving parts. The biggest difficulty with team settings is getting everyone on the same page at the same time.
This is even more difficult if you operate as a remote team since you’re physically in different places and can’t all corral into the conference room for a 3pm meeting (even if you have a virtual conference room, 3pm may have a different meaning for people on a remote team as they may be spread around the world).
So, wouldn’t it be great to have a tool that keeps teams on track, but at a pace where everyone can keep their head above water? Meetquo is looking to help with their tool designed for asynchronous meetings and brainstorming. The platform is designed for teams and allows for teammates to view meetings and participate asynchronously before final decisions get signed.
Team leaders can create meetings and invite attendees. They can then choose who can update the main Meeting Document and who can only post suggestions and feedback. When leaders feel the meeting is complete, they can close the discussion option and ask everyone to sign the outcome so that they can proceed with everyone on board.
Proposals can also be created within the platform, and the ability to give and receive feedback is available for all users. Each team member can develop proposals and write feedback asynchronously, allowing for it to better fit into everyone’s task schedule.
Meetquo boasts helping to keep track of all key decisions. A repository of all outcomes will be available through all remote meetings.
While we mentioned this is beneficial for those in a remote setting whose schedule doesn’t line up with the majority (e.g. you live on the other side of the globe), it is also beneficial for those who sit in on meetings with something to say, but don’t know when to say it. How often have you wanted to provide input, but Joe from accounting won’t shut up and you don’t want to be rude and interrupt him? This allows everyone to go at their own speed and brings you to an agreed-upon outcome.
Being that almost all of us have been working from home these last few months, what has been the most beneficial tool for you so far?
