How much time is spent taking and distributing minutes in your organisation? How often are your staff impacted by miscommunications, forgotten action points and lost meeting notes? All of these losses can be avoided when you use an AI tool to automatically generate searchable transcriptions of your meetings.

Prerequisites:

  • For 6000 minutes per month and advanced order export, you will need a premium plan from $99 annually.
