1. THE BEGINNING

This innovation initially came to life when…

Konveen was born out of a frustration with meeting culture in general while trying to run remote teams, internal teams and client meetings. The concept was first wireframed as a concept in April / May 2014 and launched version 1 in February 2015.

2. WHAT & HOW

The purpose of this innovation is to…

Konveen is an enterprise meeting platform that brings consistency and structure to the way organisations plan and document their meetings to deliver better operating efficiency and improve outcomes.

It does this by…

…providing a centralised application to unify the meeting creation, running and documentation process with all data being persistently available and recorded and stored in context. The application includes the ability to run video / web meetings from the same platform.

MEETING_NOTES

3. PURPOSE & BENEFITS

This innovation improves on what came before because…

Consistent structure and repeatable processes for running efficient meetings. Recorded and searchable documentation for compliance and accountability. Organisation wide transparency across meetings. Increased awareness of meeting costs and productivity through analytics.

Its various benefits to the customer/end-user include…

Reduce time spent on preparing and attending meetings. Increased accountability and transparency across participants to realise outcomes and deliver results more effectively. The ability to better record and search past meetings quickly for reference.

4. COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

In the past, this problem was solved by…

People currently use a mix of video technology, pen and paper, shared documents and various tools. Unified meeting platforms are not consistently adopted in enterprise which means that current methods reduce visibility of the meeting culture across organisations.

Its predecessors/competitors include…

MeetingHero (Worklife), Do, Attentiv

5. TARGET MARKET

It is made for…

Medium to Enterprise level customers would benefit from Konveen because they have the biggest productivity and cost centre losses in relation to meetings with almost zero visibility across this cost centre. The average large scale company loses tens of millions a year to poorly structured, recorded and run meetings. Individual licences are available for small / medium businesses but we are not actively marketing to these customers as their needs are quite diverse, some use it for video purposes and others for accountability and project tracking.

It is available for sale through…

The service is available through personal sales service to enterprise. Anyone can sign up a user licence online however for site licences we provide consults and training to ensure the user gets the most out of the product.

Our marketing strategy is to…

Network with and approach companies that have demonstrated a pain point in relation to meetings and are actively seeking a way to reduce the meeting overheads, increase efficiencies and productivity and increase visibility across their meeting culture.
