Having experienced first-hand the difficulties professionals face looking for an all-in-one meeting management software, Cisco's Technical Manager, Jonathan Liang, set out to use adam.ai, our powerful, meeting productivity software specifically designed to empower professionals in finding clarity within meetings and clarifying tasks' timelines, status, and accountability, in addition to eliminating meeting minutes' ambiguity. All of that while also decreasing meetings burnout.
We got a chance to chat with Jonathan Liang about how he used adam.ai to enhance meetings, drive better results on time, improve participation, and provide translucency. This was done with our all-in-one tool that helps his team attend meetings that are productive, where they keep track of their tasks and schedule, while following up on those meetings with ease.
Here's what he said.
Can you tell us a little about you and your company?
I'm a technical manager with years of experience in driving change at Cisco, the IT Technology global leader.
How did you find out about adam.ai and what made you decide to use it?
I lost track of meeting outcomes, and keeping the momentum of various projects has always been hard. I decided to give adam.ai a chance when it was offered at a competitive price.
What was your workflow like before using adam.ai?
I wrote notes in various note-taking apps and redistributed these notes manually after meetings. I searched for meetings and their notes only when needed.
What were your needs when you started looking for a meeting management solution?
A place to keep track of all meeting outcomes that the entire project team can share and collaborate on.

How did adam.ai change your workflow/productivity and what were the results?
Our meeting notes and meeting outcomes became automated, much easier and more organized; research is largely reduced post meetings, now. Our meetings became more meaningful and effective and it was far easier to switch between projects without losing focus.

How did you satisfy those needs and did your team meet their goals?
Notes are now written and saved, but that's not it, we can now share it as needed, and the team now has a shared view of the outcomes and the timeline of their assigned tasks, making it easier for them to deliver action items on time, reducing meeting burnouts without losing context.

Then Liang added, "We plan to continue using adam.ai to keep our meetings and projects organized with clear timelines. Meetings became more engaging and easier to track with adam.ai; a quick glance is enough to capture a project's status; and the team's progress and the well-formatted PDF meeting notes received many appraisals.
