Beenote, for the management of the executive committee
Marcil Lavallée, a provider of a wide range of accounting services, uses Beenote to manage their executive committees. This has allowed them to greatly improve the efficiency of their meetings, to ensure a close follow-up of the tasks assigned and to facilitate the documentation and research of the topics discussed.
What were their specifications for a good meeting management tool?
Marcil Lavallée’s team had already implemented an internal business practice of secure document management in PDF format.
However, the company wanted to improve the entire meeting management process before, during and after meetings with the implementation of a collaborative solution.
The team then established a list of criteria to evaluate the tools available on the market that would meet their needs.
The most important requirements were:
- The simplicity of the tool
- The follow-up of the tasks to be carried out
- Searching for specific information in all documented meetings
- Integration into email/calendar/tasks of Microsoft 365
“In a matter of seconds, I can retrieve anything that was discussed in my management committee. Both the topics, the decisions and the actions to be taken.” François Fontaine, Director, Projects & Continual Improvement
The key reasons why Marcil Lavallée chose Beenote
The simplicity of the tool allowed participants to hold and document their meetings without necessarily involving administrative staff.
The integration with the Microsoft 365 suite also allows them to easily plan their meeting and track the completion of action plan items. Above all, it was the ability to search the history of decisions that made Marcil Lavallée choose Beenote.
The implementation and use experience of Beenote
The implementation of Beenote within the team went smoothly. The solution was initially intended for the partners of the accounting office. The Beeboard feature of the solution met their needs very well.
In order to meet their growing needs, they greatly appreciate the possibility of eventually adding operational teams through Beenote’s Beeteam teams.
