Question Mark IconWhy is it important?

Many organizations are still using paper-based processes to conduct their legislative management. This leads to wasted time, paper, and money. Most clerks who manage the meeting process find the pre-meeting preparation of agenda-creation and approval to be tedious and time consuming. Last minute agenda changes impact the clerks ability to run a smooth, well planned meeting. Clerks often find they are using reams of paper need to print agendas and detailed documentation needed. There is an alternative to sorting, scanning and saving all these documents: moving to digital. Using digital legislative management solutions allows government to streamline cross-departmental workflows, modernize the public meeting experience, promote board efficiency, and establish meaningful connections with citizens. Most importantly, it reduces the stress and burden of running the meetings and turns attention to the matter at hand: the results for the community.
