Enjoy Easier, Better Council Meetings
With electronic voting, request-to-speak discussion management, automatic documentation, and more, the OpenMeeting Technologies meeting management system offers the tools you need to streamline your council meetings.
Do you dread your council meetings?
Are your meetings difficult to get through?
Your meetings and legislative processes are inefficient, time-consuming, disorganized, and sometimes even frustrating.
Do your meetings make you look bad?
As the public watches you in action, their perception of your competence declines because of your inefficient processes.
Are your meetings difficult to follow?
It’s difficult for citizens to know who is currently speaking, how their representative votes, and to follow the meeting in general.
We’ve created the solution for easy, streamlined, and transparent council meetings.
Streamline the Meeting Process
Electronic roll call, motions, seconds, and voting on a smart tablet enables smooth, efficient meeting processes and accurate records.
Run Organized & Orderly Meetings
Councils members are prompted to take action on items when necessary. They can even request to speak to be added to a speaker queue during discussion.
Boost Public Transparency & Confidence
Council members and citizens in the audience can easily follow along with the meeting with a display that visually communicates all meeting actions.
“It allows for more transparency to our citizens while aiding various departments & legislative processes.”
“OpenMeeting saves me time and reduces common headaches associated with board meetings.”
“OpenMeeting is a big boost to both the member and public experience for our board meetings.”
