MeetingSense funded for $3M

BoxuseLast week, San Diego-based MeetingSense received $3M in a series A round from TVC Ventures. MeetingSense is a software product that the company’s website describes as “easy-to-use software that dramatically improves meetings by helping to capture, distribute, and then manage notes, action items, and much more.” The software, which sells for $99 with volume pricing available, integrates with Microsoft Outlook to send out meeting invitations as well as distribute post-meeting summaries and task items. They have a free, live online demo available for anyone interested in checking out the program. From a recent announcement touting the software:

“Online tools have changed the way business meetings are scheduled and held but little attention has been paid to capturing and sharing meeting metadata such as discussions and next steps,” said Mark Levitt, Program VP for Collaborative Computing and the Enterprise Workplace, IDC. “MeetingSense is designed to pick up where the other tools leave off.”

And from a review posted in May on InfoWorld:

MeetingSense 2.0 is one of those rare products that uncovers — and then solves — a common business need near perfectly. The only possible improvement I can see is tighter integration with online services, such as Microsoft Live Meeting, WebEx, or Adobe Connect Professional (formerly Breeze). Still, while each of these has some similar features during a meeting (such as note taking), no other product I’ve used matches MeetingSense’s meeting organization and information management tools. It’s somewhat ironic that companies using this product actually report fewer meetings because of productivity improvements. But I doubt anyone’s complaining.

Jeb Spencer, Managing Partner at TVC Ventures, was named as Chairman of the Board for MeetingSense at the time of funding.
