Full-function tool for facilitators

Pros

MSp is a full-function tool for any process facilitator. It is very powerful for building and manipulating lists of data. Ideas can be easily generated, organized, categorized and prioritized. A must-have for facilitating focus groups, action-planning sessions, requirements analysis, strategic planning workshops, etc. A key feature is that all input is anonymous ... participants can enter their ideas with confidence.

Cons

There is quite a learning curve to this tool. Some education / tips-and-hints are needed.

MeetingSphere Unlocks the Power of People - It's truely demoCreative!

I have been using MeetingSphere from the beginning and also used the predesessor SmartSpeed, so in total 7-8 years. Before this I used ThinkTank from GroupSystems which I abandoned for abvious reasons. MeetingSphere has allowed me to deliver work processes to a fraction of the time and cost compared to traditional consulting. In 2013 I was awarded "Security Consultant of the Year" by the Swedish security industry due to my efficient way of working. Today I cannot see myself to use traditional tools anymore. Sitting in a risk assessment workshop using MS Excel is so inefficient and old fashion. Extreamly costly compared to the "collaborative" way that I use thanks to MeetingSphere. For me MeetingSphere is the tool that allow me to support clients transformation of their core processes. ... I could go on for ever here ... it's a game-changer!

Pros

I don't have to train any participants before they take part in sessions. The GUI is so intuitive. The other thing is the ability to participate anonymously, which then totally removes political and hierarchical influence on group contributions.

Cons

I would like to have the administration GUI in Swedish. There are so many people in public sector who sees the benefits of this tool but they hesitate since the system texts are in either English or German. The instructions that I write for participants I write but the system-generated texts and the texts in the GUI has to be able to localize to other languages than English and German.

An essential tool for group work, team collaboration and decision-making

Our team uses MeetingSphere on a regular basis (both virtual and face-to-face) with our clients for requirements gathering, tactical and long-range planning, Design Thinking and Agile project activities, organizational culture analysis, creative problem-solving ... just about any activity that requires group work, team consensus and collaborative decision-making. This is an essential tool for virtual work with our global teams. The speed at which we can progress through team-based activities -- and produce high quality results -- provides great value-add to our clients. In my entire professional career of many, many years, I have not worked with a company that provides better customer service than the MeetingSphere team. Their support is stellar and clearly demonstrates their commitment to their clients' success.

Pros

Versatile software -- can be customized for most any group work activity Customer support - stellar

Cons

Learning curve - takes some time to learn the advanced features

A real workhorse tool

I used MeetingSphere to crowdsource information about topics, ideation for problem solving, Innovation tools, and summary reports on a regular basis to move project teams toward their deadlines. Except for an initial kickoff that might be an on-site event, most of the work is done by dispersed employees in different time zones. We would keep the MSp work site open for asynchronous work. As a facilitator, I love not having to make sense of participants' writing an post-its and flipcharts. Their entries can be clarified and used in the report. The speedy data crunching of ranking, voting, categorizing entries into themes, and other necessary actions were such a relief to the usual laborious work I had to do in the past. I especially like having participants work asynchronously writing comments on other participants' entries - virtual dialogue. I'm a big fan!

Pros

Speedy data crunching and summary reports.

Cons

I wish a conference call feature was part of the software.
