Losing time in follow-up Meetings? Let's Comeet

This happens all of the time: a regular meeting takes place and everyone ends up with a lot of tasks to do. Then, there are TONS of follow-up meetings just to see if these tasks are being carried out. So, in a world of continuous context changes and the frantic pace of business life, if everything is not fully organized, it's really difficult for participants to finish what they committed to. This obviously translates into a huge waste of time for everyone involved. 

A Project Meeting is a regular event where people who are involved in a given project convene to communicate with other participants and stakeholders to discuss issues, make proposals, approve, or reject ideas and hopefully solve problems. The main reason for these project meetings is to align and make sure the project progresses towards a set of goals or expected results. Additionally, project meetings can build a sense of team or community among colleagues, which only improves communication.

Well, it's a nice theory. But we all know that in practice things are not this simple. In real life, after the project meeting, follow-up meetings appear. These are usually overly abundant and, in most cases, a waste of time. They are really only an excuse to check what everyone is doing regarding the project to see if things are getting done.

One of the main benefits of Comeet is to optimize meetings, meaning you'll have fewer follow-ups or at least make them shorter (therefore saving people’s time). Not only that, but it makes it easier to assign and follow people's tasks.

How does it work? Comeet is integrated into Google Calendar, where one can then note decisions and next-steps down during the meeting. The tool will remind everyone of the project meeting’s outcomes, the assignments, and its status so that the next time you meet all you need is a quick check.

So, to sum up, everyone will be aware of the pending commitments, deadlines, and feedback. In this way, Comeet helps your company and your employees organize so that everyone can finish whatever they've committed to in their last meeting. Meaning that you can move forward in your next meeting with what matters.
