Convene, the leading enterprise meeting software, emerged as the winner over two other finalists for the award — besting hundreds of software entries from more than 31 countries.
As Storage and Information Management Solution of the Year, Convene superbly met the criteria for innovative creation, management, storage, and distribution of meeting documents through its administrative portal, where board secretaries and administrators can easily upload, apply versioning, enforce access permissions, and publish content to Convene’s virtual meeting application.
In addition, Convene provides added value with its capabilities to manage not just documents, but end-to-end meetings, starting with preparation for a meeting and ending with archiving files for future reference. Convene is designed to make meetings more productive by streamlining the whole process and providing a powerful suite of collaboration features.
Administrators can prepare materials, distribute meeting packets, and handle last-minute changes with less time and effort. Meeting participants also enjoy the same level of efficiency with real-time sharing of information. They can instantly share the latest version of meeting files with fellow participants and look for what they need with the search function.
Handling sensitive and confidential data requires a secure solution, and Convene answers this need with its security features. Data in storage or in transit over a wireless network are encrypted using industry-standard ciphers. In addition, access to all files and directories is permission-driven, while an audit trail logs all user activities in the system. With its two-factor authentication, system resilience, remote data wipe and other stringent security measures, confidentiality of data is ensured.
Alasdair Mangham, Director of Business Development at Azeus, received the award at the prestigious event held at the Nine Kings Suite, Lancaster London Hotel. Mangham expressed his appreciation to the award-giving body for recognising Azeus Convene as the model solution for storage and information management.
Wan Lik Lee, Managing Director of Azeus, expressed fulfillment. “This award realised our vision of Convene as an innovative solution to virtual meetings and collaborations, not just for management boards, but for all levels of the organization.”
“This is really a significant achievement that we at Azeus are definitely proud of,” Lee added.
