OpenMeeting is on a mission to help local governments modernize their meetings.

Our History

What Makes OpenMeeting Unique

WYSIWYN (What You See is What You Need) Interface

Our interface provides each user (whether voting members, the clerk or secretary, or observers) exactly what they need when they need it. 

Users report that our WYSIWYN interface reduces training time by 2/3!

Functionality Tailored for Efficient Legislative Meetings

Our systems have been used in over 10,000 legislative settings, and our staff has personally been involved in hundreds of these meetings.  This direct “eyes on” approach has allowed us to identify, anticipate, and design for the functionality needed to deliver more productive and efficient meetings. 

A meeting time reduction of 50% is not unusual.  On August 21, 2018, a client with 25 voting members conducted two roll call votes within 48 seconds!

Easy Integration with Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) Components

We leverage the investments you’ve already made in technology and training.  For example, our voting app runs on Android, iOS, and Windows 10 devices – or a combination of them.  

A standard Windows PC is all that’s required for the Meeting Manager program the clerk uses to run a meeting.  This approach minimizes the support impact of adopting our systems.

Our History

Key Milestones

2003

Launched as Roll Call Systems (RCS), RCS developed a unique, purpose-built system for electronic roll call, electronic voting, and discussion management to achieve better, more effective legislative meetings.

The system was designed by local government officials to solve real-world challenges relating to running board meetings and was immediately a hit with county boards and city councils. The first solution was called Roll Call Pro (RCP) – a clicker system that made voting easier for board members.

Roll Call Systems was acquired and renamed OpenMeeting Technologies.

OpenMeeting added key team members growing over 300%, making OpenMeeting one of the fastest-growing software companies in Minnesota. OpenMeeting developed and released new software allowing customers to continue to meet despite the separations caused by the pandemic.

OpenMeeting’s iOS and Android legislative Meeting App was accepted into the App Stores making OpenMeeting the first and only app that enables continuance of operations when board members need to be home.

OpenMeeting Technologies continues to be one of the fastest-growing software companies in Minnesota. Our system has been adopted by the counties, municipalities, and school boards across the country.

The OpenMeeting legislative meeting management system is a hit and local legislative leaders are thrilled to modernize their meetings while making their work easier.
