Importance of Meetings
So why do we even have meetings? The importance of meetings is to retouch on any topics that might need to be resolved, developing ideas, or just a great way to update your colleagues on what’s going on with the company. The usual one-hour meetings consist of unproductive people or people who do not find the meeting intriguing and valuable to their time. This creates inconsistency between colleagues and the information that is being given. Why not break this mold with software that’ll create engagement and will help your colleagues retain the information?
Hoylu software creates many great experiences during meetings by making sharing and collaborating easier throughout. This will solve the problem of endless sticky notes and the risk of losing valuable information through paper.

Make your meetings not just a one-sided presentation but an innovative engaging event. Presenting used to be easy to capture the audience during your session, but now with technology burn out, mobile technology distractions, among other things it is so much more difficult to get and keep an audience engaged. Our minds are molding to our past times, with social media being a huge impact on people’s attention span, it has decreased from 12 seconds to 8 seconds. This is just one second short of the attention span of the average fish. This says a lot about how we process information and how we view it. Meetings these days cannot be the average PowerPoint with standard images and animations. Hoylu increases their attention span. It puts them in the meeting and deters them from any boredom or distractions.

Hoylu Paper’s advantage is due to the ability to actually participate without the hectic and limited amount of space at the front of the screen. Allowing user participation to this level without leaving their seat will leave everyone feeling more satisfied and like a part of the team.
