The best meeting and business software.

The software helped me to save time and money on scheduling meetings and running my business.

PROS

Azeus Convene has the possibility to prepare meetings anywhere and offline. It has a system to protect all your information and data so you don't need to worry. The software also notifies all group participants of updates about meetings and other events.

CONS

I did not find any negative points using this software, it helped me a lot in preparing and running meetings.

Vendor Response

Convene - Easy to use and good value

Convene saves having to make up paper board packs and is easier to distribute the papers with the click of a button and most importantly securely. I can also see who has downloaded their papers.

PROS

There are some really good features such as review room which we now use instead of Sharepoint which was more difficult to use. Convene is intuitive and meeting packs can be created quickly without having to convert papers to pdfs as the system does it easily. We also have single sign-on so its easy to access.

CONS

The only downside is it probably dosen't look as polished as some of the more expensive competition but it does the job and is much easier to use than some of the better known competition and there ares ome really good features and tools included

Reason for choosing Convene

Cost was the defining factor as we are a charity but also functionality which Convene has as well as ease of use.

Vendor Response

Hi Andrew, thanks for your review on Convene. We're glad that you find our software valuable for your board meetings. Contact us or visit our website to learn more.

Easy and intuitive to use, does everything we need

Security for our board information, control over users, a single place for all of the information and and easy to use system which is cost effective.

PROS

The software has clearly set out sections, is easy and intuitive to use, has very informative user guides and excellent customer support.

CONS

This software doesn't do as much as as some of the other similar products out there. But it does enough (and in some cases more) that we need.

Vendor Response

Thank you so much for the positive review! If you would like Convene to do more for you, please contact your account manager as features and functions can be customised to your needs. We are also glad to hear that we are providing a secure platform for your digital meetings. Many thanks, The Convene Team

Convene software review

The overall experience in using Convene is good in our company.

PROS

Our company has used Convene software for a couple of years for convening internal and external meetings and Board meetings. We particularly like the features of screen synchronisation among all meeting participants and the marking private or public comments and highlighting important information on the documents.

CONS

The latest version for supporting video conference feature is not market competitive that only 8 users can display their camera images and others can only use the voice function. Looking forward to receiving a more advance feature for video conferencing.

Reason for choosing Convene

More competitive in pricing and features, and easy to use.

Vendor Response

We are grateful for your feedback of Convene. We hope to continue provide your organization with quality service and a continually updated software. Rest assured, that we are working to improve our video conferencing feature and we'll update when possible. As always, let us know how we may be of assistance in preparing or holding your organizational meetings.

Convene is a fantastic product. From setting the system up to rolling it out to users, Convene have supported us every step of the way. Response times to queries is impressive with workarounds/resolutions usually quickly found. The software has enabled preparation for Board meetings to be a quick process, saving time for other tasks during the day.

PROS

Great functionality, simple and intuitive to use. Convene has simplified my Board meeting preparation enormously. The ability to build an agenda, move items around (including attachments) is extremely easy and time saving. Convene's ability to export a pack of papers in a matter of minutes has saved me almost a full working day of preparation. With the onset of the pandemic, Convene was used for lots of different meetings, purely because of its functionality and speed of use.

CONS

I have encountered a couple of issues regarding the uploading of Excel spreadsheets and password protected documents. The former has mainly been resolved by ensuring a pdf of the document is prepared and uploaded. I have not found a resolution to uploading password protected documents, so simply print a hard copy and scan in.

Vendor Response

Hello Lisa! We appreciate your honest feedback regarding Convene. We are glad you were able to have a pleasant experience using our product. We will continue improving our product for you to have an even better user experience.
