Leading technology company, Azeus, has launched their new state-of-the-art software Convene in Teams.
The exciting new product allows directors and administrators to take advantage of Convene’s board management features within MS Teams. It eliminates the hassle of switching between applications and lets MS Teams users enhance their meetings.
Due to the pandemic, working from home has become the norm. Microsoft Teams is a powerful tool that improves remote collaboration and productivity. However, the software does not offer board management – this is where Convene comes in. The integrated Convene app lets secretaries and directors compile meeting packs and engage with documents in a secure, efficient manner.
Speaking of the launch, Azeus founder and CEO Lee Wan Lik said: “Convene and MS Teams are two powerful solutions by themselves. Convene is an award-winning board management software, while MS Teams boasts over 115 million users globally. Combining these products will boost efficiency in meetings and empower boards to further collaboration.”
Convene in Teams is designed primarily for existing Microsoft users that are looking for more advanced capabilities. It embeds the web-based version of Convene within MS Teams.
The software has additional functionalities such as Active Directory integration. It allows AD users to use single sign-on (SSO) access to Convene and grant guest access.
There is also SharePoint integration. It is for all meetings, review rooms, and resolution files and has SharePoint’s encryption and access control.
Reflect changes to files automatically through two-way sync with live-editing of files. If the user has the rights, they can update board books or minutes.
The exchange integration feature allows boards to manage schedules using RSVP. Changes and responses to invites are reflected instantly on both platforms.
Join MS Teams meetings and follow Convene meetings all from one app with Teams AVC.
Feedback from the early adopter’s group of company secretaries has been very positive:
“Convene within Teams has allowed our board to focus on governance and decision-making.
“Convene in Teams eliminates the hassle of maintaining and updating separate tools and workflows. It has managed to streamline our meetings and processes even further utilising Convene and Teams’ features in one space.”
Convene is an award-winning board management software used by directors and executives in over 100 countries. It gives users complete control over the meeting process – from pre-meeting preparation to post-meeting document distribution.
