    I like that it has easy to use templates in order to create agendas for your meetings. I also like that I can add infinite people to the group. The software does its job as its supposed to. I would like to see a wider variety of templates with more ability to edit them. It makes it very simple to get your point across to multiple people within your organization at the same time regardless of their geographical location.

    Decision Time Meetings is very easy to use once used a couple of times. The login process is simple and navigation around the system is easy and obvious. Any issues I had while using the system were immediately solved by IT. The training provided was to a very high standard as was the aftercare for anyone having issues.

    The Agency transitioned over to paperless meetings seamlessly through the use of Decision Time. There have been no issues in facilitating meetings online, and this tool has created really strong efficiencies. It has become even more valuable to have in place during the pandemic and has allowed the Agency to operate in a business as usual setting.

    After using Decision Time for a couple of months, we are extremely pleased with the experience we have had so far. It is far superior to our previous system; easier to use, good end user experience and great working relationship with Decision Time.

    Adding additional non Board members has eased the workload in sending out pdf etc. This is hugely beneficial. It is clear and concise and very easy to use. An excellent product I would not hesitate to recommend.

    The China Joint Colleges Office [CJCO] provides administrative services to University College Dublin's three Joint Colleges in China: Beijing Dublin International College (BDIC), Chang'an Dublin International College of Transportation (CDIC), and Guangzhou Dublin International College of Life Sciences & Technology (GDIC) The Covid situation and our inability to meet face to face means that it is more important to have regular formal meetings with colleagues in Xi'an, Beijing, and Guangzhou. By necessity, these meetings must follow a more focused/structured format and they need to be documented efficiently. The Decision Time meeting management system has transformed our approach to all component of the meeting process. The CJCO team have experienced immediate benefits from this transformation including but not limited to: Improved effectiveness and reduced the time for preparing and running meetings. Better engagement and more information for better decisions. Strong focus on making, recording and distributing meeting decisions and follow-up tasks.
    Excellent customer service and training ensured that we were using Decision Time effectively - right from the beginning of the trial The ease of creating, editing, and updating Agenda Templates for our various committees underpins the speedy preparation of meeting agendas. The auto-renumber facility for agenda items allows total flexibility in structuring or formatting meetings. The immediate linkage between agenda items and associated briefing documents has transformed the way in which committee members engage / participate in meetings. Attendees are better prepared and they are exchanging notes / clarifying issues in advance of the meetings. As a result, discussion time is reduced and more focus is given to decision making and to the assignment of follow up tasks. Decision Time "imposes" an intuitive structured flow to our meetings that has dramatically eased the administrative burden of organising / supporting meetings and recording / documenting meeting decisions / outcomes / actions, etc.
    Minor concerns about the formatting of word documents generated when downloading meeting outcomes have been flagged with Decision Time. They are making efforts to provide meeting organisers with greater control over the format of meeting outcome documents generated by Decision Time.

    Before we introduced DecisionTime, as the person responsible for producing, collating and distributing board and committee meeting papers, I regularly ended up working in the office alone late at night in a battle to get papers printed, bound and ready to be posted out. This was a very long-winded and often frustrating experience, particularly if there were any errors or last minute changes. And of course photocopiers know when the pressure is on and choose the worst possible moment to play up. Now the whole process is immeasurably more efficient, cost-effective and easy to manage, and my stress levels have reduced significantly. The system is very user-friendly, easy to learn, and the DT team are continually making adjustments and improvements. We have saved a huge amount of paper, not to mention ink, postage and time. Papers can be easily and quickly uploaded, attendees are notified by email and can access agenda and reports securely via their own devices, and can download the entire pack if they need to as a single pdf. Being able to access agendas and papers from anywhere with an internet connection is great. Our trustees use their own emails to log in, meaning they don't need dedicated charity emails and so don't end up having to monitor multiple accounts (many are involved in several different organisations). As the system is secure we don't have to worry about data protection issues and confidentiality is easily maintained.
    The massive positive impact in terms of saving time in the preparation and secure distribution of trustee meeting papers.
    No real cons, other than some trustees not embracing the system due to their general approach to using technology!

    We had already been considering investing in a dedicated meeting and collaboration app for our board and committees before Covid-19 forced our usual face-to-face meetings to become virtual. Given our experience and the amount of time we've been able to save in preparing for meetings, and following up afterwards, we're kicking ourselves that we didn't discover Decision Time earlier!
    The ease with which this application was deployed and admins / organisers / users trained was very impressive. We use almost every feature available, which have been chosen with care and the interface built to allow users who might not interact very often with this type of technology to easily find their meetings, navigate the agenda and annotate embedded documents. In Covid-19 induced lockdowns, embedding the video conference call settings in a meeting introduction meant that users only have to open one application on whatever device they have to hand in order to be productive.
    There's almost nothing I don't like about this software! Decision TIme have been very positive in seeking feedback on the app and suggestions for improvement in future releases. Any teething difficulties we experienced in navigating our first few meetings were quickly dealt with by their excellent support team.

    Installing DecisionTime has been a revelation. We planned to phase it in over one School term, but the Governors found it so easy to use we were able to switch over early. The front end is simple to use, but it offers all the functionality we need. We are already finding ourselves adjusting and modernising our board processes in response to the product. Board papers can be made available to Board Members as they are finished with packs not being held up in their entirety waiting for that last report. The team at DecisionTime are unfailingly helpful, responding quickly to queries and keeping in touch with regular reviews after implementation.
    This product is intuitive and easy to use for both organisers and meeting attendees. It is reliable, with no problems accessing it, and secure. New Board Members can be trained in half an hour . Action points can be tracked through the task facility. The customer service is second-to-none.
    There is some lack of flexibility around how you make meetings visible to Board members not due to attend and roll out board member changes to all future meeting attendee lists (we plan our annual schedule 18 months ahead) - but DecisionTime are working on the solutions!

    Decision Time Meetings has been hugely successful for us, avoiding the use of huge amounts of paper and generally helping to move a slightly older profile of director into a more tech-friendly mindset. We have significantly reduced a substantial postage costs and reduced the time in copying and collating papers. The Decision Time help-desk has responded vey promptly, patiently and helpfully on the few occasions when required. We have had regular calls with the team to feed back our experience and learn about new developments. In the short time we have had the system we have had one or two great updates covering the format and content.
    It is very easy to use, both as a meeting organiser and participant. It really is intuitive - the briefest of training and 15 out of 16 of our Directors moved from the old paper-based system to working on laptops or tablets (there is always one!).
    The difference between 'Groups' and 'Committees' in the Administration menu takes a bit of getting used to but getting it right is important or you begin to doubt whether the people you want to have access actually have it.

    Decision Time is an excellent tool which both the Hospital Board and Executive are now using. It is both secure and allows the user to interact with the relevant papers the same way as if the papers were in hardcopy. The system itself is intuitive and quick to set up. This is particularly important to the Mater Group as a charitable group with limited resources. Finally, the Decision Time team are excellent. They are responsive and work with you which is hugely beneficial. They are receptive to all feedback and always return an email and call. Their customer service is excellent and both the system and team come highly recommended.
    The system assists with tracking compliance and actions. Given the current level of regulation and governance it is imperative that organisations have a tool to demonstrate compliance and that all relevant documents and updates are easily found and searchable for both board members and senior executives.
    Nothing comes to mind. At a push, being able to copy and paste from other sites might be useful but does introduce IT risks.
