5 Reasons Automatic Note Taking is the Next Big Thing
The latest in this near-human-level-intelligence is conversation comprehension system that is helping organizations conduct generative meetings by transcribing, analyzing and producing insights based on human conversations. Automatic note taking filters the important stuff from the minutes of your meetings in terms of action items, follow-ups, open items and more. Here’s why your switch to automatic note-taking should come sooner than you think:
Physical Note Taking is Mundane: There’s no reason why in a world where AI is able to fix our meetings (request in conversations using Siri), why it shouldn’t be a part of them too. Automatic note-taking covers real-time conversational analysis and presentations. It can be integrated into your calendar so that you don’t have to worry about missing another deadline. In short, the mundane task of physical note-taking is made much simpler, easier, efficient and more productive.
Extra Time Spent in Making Post-Meeting Notes: Manual notes made during the meetings are merely drafts. Extra time and energy go into refining that draft into important pieces of information. The solutions to the problems discussed in the meetings and the next actionable steps to be taken become clearer with these post meeting notes.
Difficult for Culturally Rich Organizations: Over the last decade, organizations have become culturally richer. This means that business meetings are attended by people from various backgrounds speaking in different accents. It is difficult to understand a speaker conducting a meeting in an unfamiliar accent. And if you have a hard time interpreting the content of the meeting, manual note taking will be even more difficult.
Manually Syncing Calendars and Reminders: Another post-meeting ritual is the syncing of calendars for deadlines and setting up of reminders for more meetings. Manually editing and re-editing your appointments is a tedious task. It also means that after every meeting, most of your crucial productive time will be wasted performing laborious tasks.
Losing Focus: Most speakers don’t like to be interrupted during their presentations and this becomes difficult for the attendee if there’s something from the presentation that needs clarification. It is easy to lose focus on the rest of the content of the presentation in this case. The mind gets caught up in the problem and, until clarified, is fixated on the problem.
Senior managers spend 50% of their time in meetings, while middle managers spend nearly 35% of it. The lengths of meetings can be decreased, productivity can be increased and meetings can be made effective by eliminating redundant ways of note-taking.
The world is fast moving towards a life with AI handling all our mundane tasks, including setting up post-meeting reminders. Billions of dollars can be saved, in the US alone, by adopting a better alternative to manual note-taking during meetings. In other words, trillions of dollars are said to be contributed to the global economy by AI due to increased productivity by 2030. This alone is adequate to comprehend the growth of smart machines in enterprise systems to increase daily productivity. And for vendors looking for effective ways to increment their ROI, adopting an event-driven architecture, or put simply – automatic note taking app for meetings – that takes care of your MoMs is the way to begin.
