Slow, unproductive meetings have no place in the fast-paced financial industry. Meeting efficiency is imperative as professionals in banking, wealth and money management, investment, insurance, and real estate need to stay ahead of the curve to make the best strategic decisions for their clients. Dynamic, purpose-driven meetings demand having the necessary data and tools readily at hand. However, data is complex and varied. It can come from several channels, including the cloud and digital services and data silos such as documents, emails, business applications, and more. Few things contribute more to unproductivity than the inability to access these streams and to easily share them in conferences with colleagues and stakeholders.
