Don’t ask me for a pen, because I might not be carrying one. That’s because I now write down all my meeting notes in a computer that understands handwriting – even mine. Read on to see how this saves me countless hours a week.
The story of how this came about started when my company merged with a competitor last year and I found myself in a new role – Business Development. What that meant was that I was out of the office a lot – and I took plenty of notes. Then when I got back in the office, I had to transcribe these notes into our corporate-wide Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system, which happens to be a product called Maximizer.
