Hello, I am Alan Mackenzie the founder of Webo.
The Meetings Communicator is a Specialist Product of ours dedicated to addressing the need for online meeting packs and for online meeting support. Should either of these be needed we are the solution that you are looking for.
One of our unique features is that we have as a foundation a comprehensive WYSIWYG website builder.
This means that there is no coding requirement for you to be an expert online Meetings Pack Builder.
It also means that we specialise in content presentation. While content may be King it is the presentation thereof that gets it read and understood.
The Meetings Pack Communicator is an online bookmarklet APP.
Open the shared webpage URL on an Android Device with preferably Chrome, Tap "Menu" and then tap "Add to Home Screen."
On an IOS device, using Firefox or Safari, tap "Bookmark" and then tap "Add to Home Screen.
On a PC just bookmark the shared webpage.
The Meeting Pack APP is an Alerts, Link and List Communicator
Each time you tap the APP icon it will open the latest version of any document.
You can use the Communicator to hyperlink to document downloads in original format or you can link to these same documents loaded to the most suitable page builder.
Using the Meeting Pack Communicator you are assured that the content is complete and up-to-date, well presented and conveniently available on hansets and PC's.
There are no delivery delays and input can be immediately submitted for agenda consideration.
Once setup a virtual meeting room ensures that your meetings will be economic, effective and efficient.
On the record deliberations are typed by a meeting administrator who maintains a backoffice in support of a "Meeting Wall."
The meeting wall will allow for
Links to documents

Our meeting wall templates for a meeting introduction and document version control schedule, the agenda, decisions and the action plan and feedback templates are purpose built to get the job done for you
Customisation is encouraged and we will support this need
For those that want to stick to the knitting and not take up the DIY option we offer a B4U alternative
We do however stress that it is a time dependent decision as every step of the process is supported by a How To Tips panel at the foot of every page
