Making Governance So Much Easier

Installing DecisionTime has been a revelation. We planned to phase it in over one School term, but the Governors found it so easy to use we were able to switch over early. The front end is simple to use, but it offers all the functionality we need. We are already finding ourselves adjusting and modernising our board processes in response to the product. Board papers can be made available to Board Members as they are finished with packs not being held up in their entirety waiting for that last report. The team at DecisionTime are unfailingly helpful, responding quickly to queries and keeping in touch with regular reviews after implementation.

Pros

This product is intuitive and easy to use for both organisers and meeting attendees. It is reliable, with no problems accessing it, and secure. New Board Members can be trained in half an hour . Action points can be tracked through the task facility. The customer service is second-to-none.

Cons

There is some lack of flexibility around how you make meetings visible to Board members not due to attend and roll out board member changes to all future meeting attendee lists (we plan our annual schedule 18 months ahead) - but DecisionTime are working on the solutions!

Effective Managment and Support of Management Meeting with Partner Universities in China

The China Joint Colleges Office [CJCO] provides administrative services to University College Dublin’s three Joint Colleges in China: Beijing Dublin International College (BDIC), Chang'an Dublin International College of Transportation (CDIC), and Guangzhou Dublin International College of Life Sciences & Technology (GDIC) The Covid situation and our inability to meet face to face means that it is more important to have regular formal meetings with colleagues in Xi’an, Beijing, and Guangzhou. By necessity, these meetings must follow a more focused/structured format and they need to be documented efficiently. The Decision Time meeting management system has transformed our approach to all component of the meeting process. The CJCO team have experienced immediate benefits from this transformation including but not limited to: • Improved effectiveness and reduced the time for preparing and running meetings. • Better engagement and more information for better decisions. • Strong focus on making, recording and distributing meeting decisions and follow-up tasks.

Pros

Excellent customer service and training ensured that we were using Decision Time effectively - right from the beginning of the trial The ease of creating, editing, and updating Agenda Templates for our various committees underpins the speedy preparation of meeting agendas. The auto-renumber facility for agenda items allows total flexibility in structuring or formatting meetings. The immediate linkage between agenda items and associated briefing documents has transformed the way in which committee members engage / participate in meetings. Attendees are better prepared and they are exchanging notes / clarifying issues in advance of the meetings. As a result, discussion time is reduced and more focus is given to decision making and to the assignment of follow up tasks. Decision Time "imposes" an intuitive structured flow to our meetings that has dramatically eased the administrative burden of organising / supporting meetings and recording / documenting meeting decisions / outcomes / actions, etc.

Cons

Minor concerns about the formatting of word documents generated when downloading meeting outcomes have been flagged with Decision Time. They are making efforts to provide meeting organisers with greater control over the format of meeting outcome documents generated by Decision Time.

Seamless implementation of Decision Time

After using Decision Time for a couple of months, we are extremely pleased with the experience we have had so far. It is far superior to our previous system; easier to use, good end user experience and great working relationship with Decision Time.

Pros

• Easy to use. • Quick and seamless implementation. • Straightforward Active Directory Integration setup. • Great support from the Decision Time team. • Decision Time are easy to work with and take feedback onboard.

Cons

One slight disadvantage is that it can be quite time-consuming managing both Groups and Committees separately. If these were managed together, it would reduce the overhead of having to add members to Groups then additionally to Committees.

Reasons for Choosing Decision Time Meetings

Decision Time Meetings was chosen over the other three products due to its ease of use, quick implementation timeline and in particular the no pressure approach that we have received from Decision Time from the first email to present day.

Easy to use system with great customer support

From both a meeting organiser and attendee perspective, I've found the sytem easy to use. The ability to view meeting papers offline is also very useful.

Pros

The system is so intuitive, we have found little or no training is needed for new users.

Cons

It took us a while to figure out how to get our Excel spreadsheets uploaded to Decision Time correctly. The spreadsheet would load, but not be legible. We have resolved that now though by modifying our spreadsheets.

Reasons for Choosing Decision Time Meetings

One major consideration for us was the mixed technical ability on our Board and Senior Management Team. At the time, we looked at seven different systems. We chose Decision Time as it was the only system we felt ticked the boxes of our top three considerations: Ease of Use; Pricing Structure; Ease of Integration.

Response from Decision Time

Replied April 2021

Thanks for the feedback Val. Whilst we were delighted to be chosen among the six alternatives that were also considered, we never rest on our laurels. We'll always strive to ensure the system is very easy to use because we recognise how important this attribute is to our clients. We're looking forward to sharing some new features with you shortly.

Highly Recommend Decision Time Meetings

Top Class. Excellent product that I would highly recommend. Significant savings in terms of time and cost in the administration of meetings.

Pros

How easy it is to use for the user and the functionality, flexibility and time saving aspects of the software for the administrator. I have found the Decision Time meetings module to be very effective and efficient in terms of how we now prepare for our monthly Council and committee meetings. The software allows for meetings agendas and supporting documentation to be made available to attendees at the touch of button and even if changes have to be made to the agenda, it is effortless. I would highly recommend this product for meetings administration.

Cons

There are no specific issues that I dislike and the back up service from the Decision Time technical team is excellent as they are always following up with regard to improvements that can be made to the software so any issues that arise from an operational aspect are picked up by them and they nearly always find a solution or any working on a solution to the issue.

Reasons for Choosing Decision Time Meetings

Decision Time price and package was very competitive but we had also been trialling Decision Time for a period before making the decision to go with them.
