Most people I know don’t like business meetings. Meetings seem to waste a lot of time and can kill productivity in everyone’s workday. A few weeks ago, I wrote an article called 5 Types Of Business Meeting Villains Who Waste Your Time. What if there was a free app specifically designed to change how you conduct business meetings forever? That could be very helpful. There is such an app, and it’s called Less Meeting.
It allows you to run better meetings, finish on time, take better notes and get all your team on the same page. I spoke to Jeff Steinke, Co-Founder of Less Meeting, on the phone last week. He explained that like the Less Meeting name implies, it will ensure that you spend less time in business meetings and more time being productive and creative at work.
Less Meeting was an app born to solve the problems with business meetings. There are so many meetings during the workday, and they are often disorganized and not run effectively. That is not to mention the flood of information that comes out of each meeting. Less Meeting aims to solve meeting challenges with a very simple, free solution. If you are ready to try it for yourself, you can get it here on iTunes. If not, keep reading to learn more.
Less Meeting is like Evernote for project teams & business meetings.
Less Meeting easily integrates your calendars, meeting notes and to-dos all in one place. It is a tool to help you do everything you are already doing; only you’ll be able to do them a lot faster and more streamlined. Just by being able to easily share notes amongst team members, automate your follow ups, delegate to-dos and track team metrics, you’ll save a ton of time. Not only does Less Meeting offer the free mobile apps, but there is also an extensive web product and many integrations with different calendar and task tools. It truly is the ultimate meeting platform.
Are you a Project Manager or IT professional? Yes? You need to be using Less Meeting.
You already have lots of meetings and status meetings to follow up on to-dos. This is Less Meeting’s specialty. Besides, when you’re meeting with clients, Less Meeting makes you look awesome! The people who typically use this app are productivity-oriented executives, project managers, PMOs, client service teams and small business owners. There is even a significant part of the user base that is made up of IT professionals.
Less meeting turns ‘bad’ meetings into ‘good’ meetings. It also makes all the things you’re already doing to run a good meeting (or at least trying to do) a heck of a lot easier. For example, you’ll never again struggle with making a business meeting plan and sending it to everyone before the meeting. You’ll not only take better notes, but you’ll be able to more easily share your meeting minutes and to-dos with your team.
The results existing Less Meeting users are seeing in their business meetings are staggering. Overall, they’ve reported 17% shorter business meetings, 21% less time following up and 80% improvement in meeting culture. They also report that their action items are twice as likely to be done on time, which is a huge advantage. The only thing I think is missing from this app is that it doesn’t have an audio function for recording detailed meeting presentations. Other than that, I can’t think of anything I’d add to make it better.
Can I see a demo of Less Meeting?
Sure! Here is the 3 minute demo video:
What are people saying about Less Meeting?
“I started using Less Meeting to replace email for taking meeting minutes. The product goes so much farther than that by automating all of the meeting best practices you should be following but probably aren’t.” ~Chad P., Mobile Tech Consultant
“This makes capturing notes and tracking Action items ridiculously trivial. I highly recommend this tool to all my fellow PM’s and Software managers.” ~Barry G., IT Project Manager
“Less Meeting is concise, doesn’t add unnecessary fringe features to complicate the core competency of the program, and it simply works effortlessly.” ~Dean C., Internet Sales Manager
“I can’t be everywhere at once, so when I have to float between meetings I can see where I’m needed and what resources folks might need from me.” ~Sherrilynn R., School Principal
