Visual Meeting Software Simplifies Government Transparency

OpenMeeting Tech is the leading visual meeting software for local government.

All OpenMeeting features integrate seamlessly with each other, ensuring that board meetings run smoothly. One of the central features is the Public Display. OpenMeeting’s Public Display, sometimes called a tally board or tote board, communicates local government meeting action to the citizens in real-time. 

OpenMeeting’s Public Display (tally board) displays critical details about how your meeting is proceeding and makes it easy to include citizens and onlookers in public meetings in a more meaningful way. It can be difficult for interested and involved citizens to hear and see everything going on in meetings when they are able to attend in person and near impossible to engage when they are not physically present. OpenMeeting’s Public Display (tally board) creates meeting visuals that are accessible in person and remotely, making it much easier for citizens to understand what is being discussed and absorb the more detailed proceedings of a public meeting.

OpenMeeting Public Display Meeting Vote Tally

In a typical local government meeting, citizens do their best despite technological and environmental challenges to follow the discussion and direction of the meeting. Unfortunately, audio alone is not sufficient to ensure that everyone is able to understand and comprehend what is being discussed and when the discussion has moved to new topics.

Even if public participants and observers can keep up with the discussion in a government meeting it is near impossible for them to follow and process all of the motions, seconds, amendments and most importantly votes. That can leave citizens confused and unsure about the process.

OpenMeeting’s Public Display (tally board), is a one of a kind, purpose-built solution that improves transparency and instills confidence. OpenMeeting’s Public Display (tally board) is easy to integrate with your current video and display technology keeping everyone in the room informed. If you are broadcasting or streaming your open meetings, the Public Display can appear full screen during voting sequences for even greater visibility and clarity around the proceedings for remote participants.
