Pros

One thing what I like the most about escribe is that it is a very user friendly software. Not only you can keep track of the Transcriptions done but also you can keep track of lines done daily and over a period of one month. You can check your feedback's regularly and improve your accuracy.

Cons

One thing missing in this software is that you cannot do selective searches within the transcription. You have to manually open each and every file to check for phrases but that is very tedious and time consuming.

The ability to manage meetings without paper required.

Pros

the ability to publish to participants,
the defer option to move an item to a future meeting,
the ability to reorder the meeting items,

Cons

the way that the text doubles uncontrollably,
the resolution shows on main page but in the edit button it disappears until entered into again,
the inability to track resolutions (I am not sure how others manage their resolutions to ensure completion or to see what resolutions are still "on the books"),
I would like to learn more about the software as I do not believe I am using it to it's full potential.

Peace of mind knowing that confidential documents are secure.

Pros

I like that everything is together in one document. The system is secure and confidential. The system is accessible from wherever meeting attendees are located.

Cons

The program does not move fast enough. Taking minutes can be held up. The curser jumps around at times. Changing spacing in documents is clunky and has to be done each time. Processing task lists continues to be an issue.

I find escribe to be a software that answers all needs when it comes to municipal meetings. I would recommend it to with much confidence.

Pros

I like that it is converted to Words and that I can make changes in that manner. I also like that I can set up many meetings at once.

Cons

I find it not very user friendly, I do a lot of searching at times before I am able to find what I am looking for. Although, we are going to have a training session in the new year, this may help.

It makes putting together an agenda a pleasure instead of the old nightmare it use to be.
The ease of putting in agenda items once approved is amazing. Easy to use the report writing.
Approval process is great.
Still iffy on the minutes taking. Does take some getting use to especially when Council puts a motion forward then brings in another before the vote.
I

Pros

It has made an great difference on the delivery of our agendas to Council. Council members prefer to have the agenda right in front of them either on their computer or ipad rather than a paper copy.

Cons

The information provided for updating is a bit confusing. As I am not a techno wizard when the updates come I am never sure if they are to be forwarded on to all eScribe users or just ipad users. I am very technologically challenged.

Track tasks to ensure completion of directions.

Pros

Ease to create agendas and the task management allows us to keep track of outstanding issues from every meeting. We are looking forward to seeing the product in HTML.

Cons

Formatting issues arise with the minutes due to the tables. Sometimes it is frustrating resolving these issues and it takes time when rushing to complete the minutes.

Time saving, elimination of paper. Easy for contributors.

Pros

It totally eliminates the need to print an agenda. Contributors upload easily and directly.
More work prior to a meeting, but less work afterwards.

Cons

Slow during meetings. Trying to find a report in the "added" is a bit of a challenge, even with filters. Still the occasional glitch. I am sure there are features that I am not aware of and not using. Follow up training - review with eScribe staff would be useful.
