Expert Choice Changes the Face of Virtual Collaboration with TeamTime
Solution Brings Structured, Decision-Oriented Collaboration Online
Washington, DC (February 2, 2009) – Expert Choice, Inc., a leader in collaborative, decision-making software, today announced the launch of TeamTime, a Web-based real-time collaboration solution that supports virtual and onsite meetings. The latest product in Expert Choice’s Comparion Suite, TeamTime allows organizations for the first time to effectively gather input from geographically dispersed teams to collaborate, align decisions with organizational priorities and save significant time and money.
“By aligning decisions with objectives, creating buy-in among stakeholders, and providing a structured decision-making approach, you create an environment where unbiased decision-making can occur,” said Rich Dougherty, CEO of Expert Choice. “With TeamTime, organizations benefit from a proven online collaborative environment that effectively connects all key stakeholders in real-time regardless of where they are in the world.”
TeamTime addresses significant issues that frequently plague team collaboration and aren’t addressed by existing meeting tools, from geographically distributed teams, inefficient meetings, and a lack of specific, transparent outcomes. Specifically, TeamTime enables:
- All team members to actively participate in the prioritization process, ensuring a better sense of stakeholder ownership and buy-in around decisions.
- The facilitator to structure and lead collaborative decision exercises with team members over the Web to align priorities with strategic goals and objectives to increase confidence in decisions.
- The facilitator to walk the team through a dynamic prioritization process in which participants provide quantitative and intuitive judgments which are instantly visible to all as they occur, promoting focused discussion and enabling teams to explore, measure, and critique the impact of various “what-if” scenarios.
Comparion is a robust Web-based prioritization and collaboration platform that simplifies goal-oriented, collaborative decision-making. Organizations use Comparion to establish priorities, communicate results, and involve stakeholder perspectives that might otherwise be overlooked or not included. By tapping the collective knowledge and experience of all their human capital, Comparion enables organizations to maximize the potential of their most valuable resource – people.
