Collaboration through online workshops

4.54/5 (13 reviews)

MeetingSphere overview

MeetingSphere is an online workshop solution that combines anonymity with interactivity and provides a virtual workspace for teams to collaborate dynamically. The platform helps users share what they know, learn what colleagues think, develop ideas and insights, and then prioritize ideas together in a group.

This tool comes with a number of features including brainstorming, rating, instant rating results, voice conference, discussion forums, automatic reporting, and screen sharing. With the brainstorming feature, users can make queries and receive opinions and input from team members. Users can either post anonymously or are tagged under a team. The rating feature allows users to find out what matters and where collaborators are agreeing on ideas. Within MeetingSphere, users can establish priorities, assess facts, and make consensuses visible. MeetingSphere delivers instant ratings results and helps the user gain visibility into top scoring items, irrelevant items, and where users are disagreeing.

The discussion functionality allows participants to exchange arguments and views in depth in free text. Team members can also exchange views on multiple topics in parallel, and voice conferencing and screen sharing allow team members to provide additional material to support their ideas and opinions.

Review Source: Capterra

I have been using MeetingSphere from the beginning and also used the predesessor SmartSpeed, so in total 7-8 years. Before this I used ThinkTank from GroupSystems which I abandoned for abvious reasons. MeetingSphere has allowed me to deliver work processes to a fraction of the time and cost compared to traditional consulting. In 2013 I was awarded "Security Consultant of the Year" by the Swedish security industry due to my efficient way of working. Today I cannot see myself to use traditional tools anymore. Sitting in a risk assessment workshop using MS Excel is so inefficient and old fashion. Extreamly costly compared to the "collaborative" way that I use thanks to MeetingSphere. For me MeetingSphere is the tool that allow me to support clients transformation of their core processes. ... I could go on for ever here ... it's a game-changer!I don't have to train any participants before they take part in sessions. The GUI is so intuitive. The other thing is the ability to participate anonymously, which then totally removes political and hierarchical influence on group contributions.

Our team uses MeetingSphere on a regular basis (both virtual and face-to-face) with our clients for requirements gathering, tactical and long-range planning, Design Thinking and Agile project activities, organizational culture analysis, creative problem-solving ... just about any activity that requires group work, team consensus and collaborative decision-making. This is an essential tool for virtual work with our global teams. The speed at which we can progress through team-based activities -- and produce high quality results -- provides great value-add to our clients. In my entire professional career of many, many years, I have not worked with a company that provides better customer service than the MeetingSphere team. Their support is stellar and clearly demonstrates their commitment to their clients' success.Versatile software -- can be customized for most any group work activity Customer support - stellar

A real workhorse tool

I used MeetingSphere to crowdsource information about topics, ideation for problem solving, Innovation tools, and summary reports on a regular basis to move project teams toward their deadlines. Except for an initial kickoff that might be an on-site event, most of the work is done by dispersed employees in different time zones. We would keep the MSp work site open for asynchronous work. As a facilitator, I love not having to make sense of participants' writing an post-its and flipcharts. Their entries can be clarified and used in the report. The speedy data crunching of ranking, voting, categorizing entries into themes, and other necessary actions were such a relief to the usual laborious work I had to do in the past. I especially like having participants work asynchronously writing comments on other participants' entries - virtual dialogue. I'm a big fan!Speedy data crunching and summary reports.

I have been using MeetingSphere for 4 years. My clients - universally - love it. It does require more planning than a typical meeting but the investment is handsomely rewarded by vastly more productive and effective meetings.Simple, easy to use, flexible for just about any situation that requires smart group collaboration. It is easy and intuitive to use. I use both the SaaS and local server versions - they provide great flexibility.

MSp is a full-function tool for any process facilitator. It is very powerful for building and manipulating lists of data. Ideas can be easily generated, organized, categorized and prioritized. A must-have for facilitating focus groups, action-planning sessions, requirements analysis, strategic planning workshops, etc. A key feature is that all input is anonymous ... participants can enter their ideas with confidence.
