Productivity at meetings, and in between

We were communicating between meetings through email, but very often we weren’t actually coming to a decision. On Loomio, we’re able to have a discussion and make a decision. And if you’ve got a lot of things to discuss in a meeting, you can say, ‘We can decide this on Loomio instead’. It’s made face-to-face meetings more efficient.

Increase staff engagement and satisfaction

Loomio fundamentally changes the satisfaction levels and engagement levels of staff. It seems to be magical and naturally supports the evolution of the organisation, and is actually being generated by the people themselves. What more can you ask for as a chief executive?

Evolve citizen and stakeholder consultation

The participants were talking to each other as well as to us. They used Loomio to tell us what issues they had experienced, and what they wanted the Welsh Government to do about it…Using Loomio to augment our committee sessions enabled us to improve satisfaction and effectiveness of the engagement process as a whole.

Globally scale a collaborative community

You need to be able to create trust. People want to understand what’s going on. There’s a need for documentation: being able to show this decision was made, it was agreed by everyone. And it’s great for new people that join to be able to see what has been discussed already. It’s really critical to become more of a learning organisation.

Remote collaboration for distributed teams

When you knock off at the end of the day the conversation continues through the different time zones, meaning you get closer to a decision even as you sleep. That speeds everything up and increases the accuracy of getting the decision right the first time. In the startup world, that combination is gold.

Every feature of Loomio helps your group discuss, decide, and move forward. It’s different from polling, surveys, or social networking.

Choose who needs to decide what.

The process of getting onto and using Loomio helps you clarify how decision making happens in your organisation. Groups can be public or private, with subgroups with fine-grained privacy controls.

Do better than majority rules.

Loomio uses a simple decision-making framework designed for constructive deliberation. Don’t settle for conflict - work together to find the best solution.

Iterate proposals to evolve your thinking.

Making decisions together can be powerful, even when an initial proposal doesn’t gain consensus. Work through disagreements to evolve and synthesise new solutions.

Deadlines drive momentum.

Loomio proposals are time-bound to ensure your group can move ahead without stalling. Everyone knows the time frame to have their input, with automatic reminders before deadlines.

Be productive without meetings.

Continue conversations without being in the same room. Get more done online, so you can use valuable meeting time for what needs to happen face to face.

Notifications keep you informed.

Customisable notifications mean everyone gets the information they need (and not the information they don’t).

Automatic decision archive.

With Loomio, meeting notes write themselves. You’ll have a searchable archive of every decision, recording who was involved and the key points, and the final outcome.

Participate by email or mobile.

Loomio works where you work. If you prefer sticking to your email inbox, you can participate that way. And you can access the app on all kinds of devices.

Accessible and Multi-Lingual.

Loomio is available in more than 30 languages, and has automatic in-line translation. It’s designed with accessibility in mind, and works great with assistive technology like screen readers.
