In October 2016, Constellation Research published their ShortListTM for Meeting Management Tools. Since then, two companies on the list have been acquired.
WorkLife was acquired by Cisco, and their product is now a free tool called Cisco Spark Meeting Notes. Those already using WorkLife before the merger were invited to come along for the ride.
Do (do.com) was acquired by forces unknown, and recently announced that the service would shut down February 24th, 2017 while they work through the transition. If or when or in what form the service will re-emerge remains a mystery.
If you’ve come to rely on either of these products to help you run better meetings, and especially if you use Do, you may have come to Lucid looking for an alternative.
Is Lucid right for you? Maybe, maybe not!
Today I’ll go over what Do users can expect from a switch to Lucid, including what’s different and what’s the same, so you can determine whether you should start a Lucid trial. WorkLife is similar in many ways to Do, so WorkLife users should find this comparison useful too.
Then at the end, I’ll share some links to a few other meeting management platforms you might want to check into as well.
