The 4 benefits of cloud-based meetings

Posted by Paul Neefjes on 15 June, 2016

Working in the cloud is popular. Which isn’t surprising since when you work in the cloud, you always have access to your files. There is extensive choice in cloud-based services. According to a recent article in the Dutch e-magazine Computable, in the next few months 80% of organizations will have adopted a hybrid cloud model. All of these companies will then work with a mixture of “public” and “private” cloud. The chance is thus very great that your organization currently works in the cloud, or soon will. Do you want to make optimal use of the opportunities available in the cloud? Have you ever considered cloud-based meetings?

Paperless meetings:  to each his own…meeting tool

Posted by Paul Neefjes on 29 April, 2016

Many organizations that have prioritized maintaining a paperless office also seek a digital-meeting tool. It is no secret that there are several ways to build such a tool, for instance, with SharePoint. You can share documents, take notes and compile summaries. And yet, optimal paperless meetings require more functionality. That is why we are eager to address the question we commonly hear: “What is the real difference between iBabs and SharePoint?”

Fast-track decision making with digital meetings

Posted by Paul Neefjes on 08 March, 2016

This weekend I suddenly flashed back to life before the internet. My son was working on a school project at the kitchen table with no books in sight. The library? No way, of course he found all of the information online. It was different back in my day. First you would look up the correct book in the card catalogue at school or in the library. And at home you’d dive into the encyclopedia. You know, Wikipedia, but in book form? You copied the relevant materials and then made the report. With pen and paper or a typewriter…and lots of Tipp-Ex. Had I had the digital materials that are available now, it would have saved me a lot of time!!

Your organization paper-free in 2017?

Posted by Paul Neefjes on 09 February, 2016

Paper-free, does that sound like utopia to you? I can well imagine! Each Dutch employee makes an average of 9 photocopies a day. The current total paper usage in the small country of the Netherlands is an astonishing 2.8 million ton! Okay, you enjoy “real paper” at home, for instance, leafing through a magazine on the couch with a glass of wine. However: we can and should drastically reduce paper usage at work, using the digital methods at our disposal.

Paperless meetings in 5 easy steps

Posted by Paul Neefjes on 02 February, 2016

My son recently got a hoverboard. You are probably familiar with this expensive gadget, but just in case: it is called a Segway without a handle. Or an electric skateboard. It has a top speed of 15 kilometers per hour. It is forbidden on public streets. This is logical since before you know it, you end up on flat the pavement! So it took some training for my son to master the gadget. It often takes practice to master business tools as well. It takes some time before you are accustomed to a new system. The same is true of paperless meetings, but if you follow the following steps, you won’t end up flat on your nose!

Paperless meetings on your Christmas list?  If Santa can do it, anyone can!

Posted by Paul Neefjes on 21 December, 2015

I was honored yesterday with a telephone call from Santa.  I was taken aback; I don’t have daily contact with St. Nick!  He was a bit stressed.  Climbing on roofs and waving from his sleigh, it is all very wearing on an elderly gentleman. He called because he was concerned about his list of presents.  It was getting longer and longer and weighs a ton. He is also concerned that it might get lost or stolen.  How did he get my number?  This is the story…

Meeting 3.0: 4 meeting trends

Posted by Paul Neefjes on 04 December, 2015

Two of my friends got new jobs this month, both of them for companies that work without a physical office.  All of the colleagues work from home or at the client’s office. Every other week the colleagues meet on a Friday morning. They spend this time socializing and naturally discussing the progress of projects, and on other typical meeting tasks.  Other companies have embraced teleworking where colleagues are not tied to an office or any specific place.  They usually work from home and they thus see each other less at work. And this also often changes the way that they hold meetings. As “tried and true” dissolves, what happens to meetings now? We observe these trends.
