MeetingSense software provides BFG Technologies a competitive edge by streamlining meetings
SAN DIEGO, Oct. 17, 2007 -- MeetingSense Software Corporation today announced that BFG Technologies, a U.S. based supplier of premium NVIDIA-based 3D graphics cards, has implemented MeetingSense 2.0, saving the company's marketing department valuable time and money.
BFG selected MeetingSense because they needed an easy-to-use solution that would integrate into their current workflow to automate and solve the inefficiencies associated with meeting management, including: capturing notes, documents, decisions, assigning action items, and the distribution and management of this critical information quickly and easily.
Previously, like many organizations, BFG's workflow inefficiently leveraged a patchwork of solutions like email, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft Outlook to schedule meetings and capture meeting data. Immediately after implementing MeetingSense, the company began enjoying significant benefits.
"MeetingSense brought structure to a process that had been chaotic," said Dean Brady, Sr. Director of Marketing at BFG Technologies. "MeetingSense has enhanced the company's ability to stay competitive in a demanding field. From the first meeting, there was 'zero resistance' to adoption throughout the marketing department. It was clear to everyone that MeetingSense was what we needed to stay on top of our game."
MeetingSense saves BFG employees an average of 1.5 hours per week, per person; extrapolate those savings to a company of 100 employees and the company saves 195 work days, or 6.5 months of time a year, which has a huge impact on a company's bottom line on a wage basis.
BFG employees now use MeetingSense to capture all aspects of their meetings, and to assign action items. After a meeting, users instantly distribute a comprehensive MeetingSense meeting summary and any action item assignments to participants.
"All employees using MeetingSense are unanimously positive about the experience," Brady said. "Everybody raves about it. It helps them because they instantly get a consistent summary of information and action items coming out of each meeting. They can quickly see what they need to know and what they are responsible for."
The video card and gaming industry is an extremely competitive and fast-paced marketplace in which speed in both product development and product marketing is essential to success. Now, using MeetingSense, BFG Technologies has gained a competitive advantage by using a standard method for managing meeting minutes and tracking action items across the organization.
"BFG is just one of our many customers quickly realizing that they can't function without MeetingSense," said Hannon Brett, President, MeetingSense Software Corporation. "BFG has begun to use MeetingSense with external clients as well to save time and to provide a general impression of professionalism."
