Why Should You Use a Legislative Board Meeting Management Software?

Improve your next board meeting (and each one after that!) with the OpenMeeting legislative meeting software.

OpenMeeting is a powerful platform that makes board meetings faster, easier, and all around better. It’s a simple, user-friendly software that helps streamline meetings by visually capturing and documenting everything that happens in a meeting from beginning to end.

Automatic & Accurate Records

The Meeting Manager automatically and accurately records and time stamps all details of your meeting. From roll call to adjournment, Meeting Manager logs all meeting activity including motions, seconds, amendments, requests to speak and votes. No more taking notes by hand while trying to juggle all the other aspects of running a successful meeting.

Rules Matter

While facilitating good discussion during meetings is important, there are certain processes and procedures that must be followed during a board meeting in order to fulfill the primary purpose of making critical decisions about items on the meeting agenda. It is up to the Board Chair to ensure that proper procedures are maintained and the Discussion Manager helps take on this detailed responsibility.

Click to Vote

Click to Vote

Perhaps the single most important feature of the Member App is the real-time, simultaneous, single-click voting. When the time comes to weigh in and make decisions, board members are shown a simple interface requiring a single click to cast their vote at the same time as every other board member. This speeds up the voting process significantly and more importantly removes undue influence.

Technology Integration

Public Display is flexible and easy to integrate with your current video and display technology keeping everyone in the room informed, and it’s powerful enough to support your future aspirations. If you are broadcasting or streaming your open meetings, the Public Display can appear full screen during voting sequences to increase visibility and clarity around the proceedings for remote participants.

Remote Attendance

To top it all off, all of this can be done from anywhere. The Member App runs on almost any device, and the Meeting Manager runs on the clerk’s computer wherever they are. This allows for in person and remote meetings or even a mix of both when needed, creating total flexibility and accessibility for everyone involved.

Our modern, simple-to-use, visual applications help ensure that all of your meeting procedures and actions are automatically documented and displayed as they occur during your meetings.
