Traditional meeting methods which includes tons of paper affairs, printouts of meeting agenda, carrying all the relevant documents and of course with updated version have become a bit outdated. With the advancement of technology, everything is on the verge to become paperless and electronically available. Conducting meetings or schedule management is just not enough as a solution. Thus, we propose an enormous range of modules like broadcasting news for meetings, documents library, online voting system, chatting functionality. The modules play a major role in increasing efficiency, accessibility, and transparency and reducing human errors.
