  • San Jose, CA (1888PressRelease) September 15, 2010 - From manufacturing and accounting to sales management and document sharing, software developers have automated virtually every business process over the last 30 years - with one glaring exception: the meeting. With Meeting Sciences' launch of meeting-eXpert™ at DEMOFall 2010, the killer app for one of the world's most ubiquitous workplace functions has finally arrived.

    "Studies show professionals spend 30 to 70 percent of their time in meetings. It's where information is conveyed, ideas are generated, decisions are made, action items assigned and reviewed-it's where things are supposed to get done. Unfortunately, antiquated processes have resulted in the vast majority of meetings being inefficient and ineffective," said Robert Anastasi, CEO of Boulder, Colo.-based Meeting Sciences.

    This need drove the development of meeting-eXpert, which takes meetings - the building blocks and veritable conveyor belt of modern business - and makes them more efficient, productive, connected and measurable. The ROI for meeting-eXpert can be measured in hours, not months.

    Tested and Proven Processes and Methodologies

    With more than 15 years' experience facilitating meetings for Fortune 1000 clients, Meeting Sciences' co-founders are recognized leaders in designing and running effective meetings of any type and size. Their consultancy practice focused exclusively around highly effective meetings, which achieved a noteworthy reputation for its track record of consistently delivering bottom-line results.

    In thousands of meetings across 28 countries, the Meeting Sciences founders developed and real-world tested a unique set of processes and methodologies that maximize individual contribution, optimize interaction between participants and ensure focus is maintained on key objectives. This resulted in the consistent achievement of desired result for clients including Oracle, ING, American Express, Leo Burnett, Polo Ralph Lauren, HP and many other respected organizations.

    In October 2008, Meeting Sciences was formed to productize and market meeting-eXpert, a comprehensive software solution that enables anyone to "get more done" in any face-to-face or virtual meeting. In addition to reinforcing proper execution of these proven processes real-time, meeting-eXpert provides a suite of unparalleled meeting-specific productivity tools guaranteeing more gets done both during and after meetings.

    "We're very excited to introduce meeting-eXpert at DEMO as we prepare to launch our beta release with key clients around the world later this year," said Anastasi. "As spreadsheets changed how we manage our finances and Six Sigma changed how we manufacture, meeting-eXpert will transform the way things get done through more productive meetings. Inefficient and ineffective meetings impact every department and level of hierarchy in an organization resulting in trillions of dollars being wasted every year. As a result, no other business-productivity tool can have as dramatic an impact on a company's bottom-line."

    With the introduction of the Software-as-a-Service-based meeting-eXpert, Meeting Sciences is bringing to market the first tool to automate the entire meeting process-from improved communications and better decisions during a meeting to more effective management of information and deliverables after and between meetings.
