Smarter meetings with groundbreaking technology
Assistant will make you and your teammates look like meeting superstars. With this app, you’ll never have to write meeting minutes or forget action items again. Because the information is automated, the question, 'who’s assigned to what task' will never go unanswered. Assistant takes your meetings from fruitless to fruitful, with a little bit of tech and a simple concept. Magical, isn’t it?
Schedule and create meetings in your calendar as usual. Once you have downloaded Assistant, the app will automatically retrieve the meetings from your calendar. So, no duplications or changed workflows here. Are you using Outlook, part of Office 365, we can fetch your meetings in the background to keep the meeting list up to date with the latest changes – no matter what device you are using. Assistant can also connect with the local calendar on your phone, so you can enjoy Assistant even if you don't have an Office 365 user.
When the meeting starts, you activate speech recognition with a single click. Voice recognition technology automatically records and analyzes the meeting so that you can receive your meeting minutes later.
With a single click, you can select a place in the audio recording that’s particularly relevant to you. This bookmark easily allows you to go back and repeat the specific part of the meeting. The best part is that, with audio bookmarks, you don’t have to write notes. Instead, you can concentrate on what is being said.
Decisions and Tasks
During the meeting, enter decisions and tasks. You can also save time by speaking your decisions or tasks using a simple voice command. Give the tasks to a meeting participant to avoid doubt about who should take action. If you are logged into Assistant with Office 365, your tasks will automatically be created in Outlook Tasks and 'To-Do', which is Microsoft's new Task Manager. Feel the ease of having all your tasks in ONE place with direct link to the specific meeting.
Heard something that sparked your interest? Add notes. The notes are personal and are not shared with the rest of the meeting participants in your emailed meeting summary. You can add notes by typing or even faster; use the Speech Recognition feature.
Inside the app, you can take pictures during the meeting. Images may be relevant, for example, if you and your team have written or drawn something on a whiteboard. The images are automatically linked to the specific meeting minutes, so you can quickly retrieve your drawings, notes and ideas when you need them.
All meeting participants will automatically receive a meeting summary by email. The Meeting Minutes contains an overview of the meeting's most important keywords. In addition, it highlights your decisions, tasks and photos – as well as personal notes and audio bookmarks. Therefore, Meeting Minutes do not look like a "traditional record", rather an optimized overview of the meeting that increases understanding and memory.
Keywords are a list of the most important themes and words discussed at the meeting. The keywords give a quick overview of the content of the meeting, as they are divided into chronological order and in color clusters for each quarter of the meeting. Do you need to refresh the memory? Simply click on a keyword and repeat the specific sequence that is relevant to you.
With Audio Search you have easy access to your previous meetings. Search for a specific meeting or directly in your meeting headlines. With Audio Search you never have to scroll through endless of emails or notes – In Assistant you can always search for keywords, relisten relevant topics and refresh your memory.
