Before using Hugo

Notes were all over the place, CRM, Google Docs, note-taking apps . . . just scribbling random notes on whatever tool was available. We had no central place for taking notes and having agendas.

Meetings weren't translating into tasks that were completed . . . We rarely had an agenda. Not enough of what we talked about was acted on or memorialized.

No one was sharing the notes among the teams. So none of them were copying the notes to the CRM, which is the brain of the company, and the ultimate source of truth.

As we made the shift to remote work we quickly realized how fragmented meeting insights were. They could have been in one of a hundred different places.

The challenge was finding a place that was connected to our calendars and all of the other tools we use everyday.

If someone had a deliverable, it would live in that Google Doc silo. It wouldn't remind them of what tasks to complete.

Pretty much the meeting would happen, everyone would disperse . . . and no one would view that doc again.

There was no concise way to hand over meeting notes between employees. Google Drive was hard to manage . . . Notes were rarely looked at again, and potentially not even taken at all.

After starting with Hugo

Because Hugo connects your meeting notes, it makes it so much easier for the whole organization to be up-to-date, to move faster, and actually get stuff done. I love the tool.

For meetings, I’ve moved off of Evernote where I had lots of stacks and notebooks. Hugo is much simpler because the calendar connection organizes everything for me.

Rather than panic on a Sunday, I’m using Hugo to make sure I’m organised for my week. 

Rather than take mental notes and forget, Hugo keeps me regimented by providing structure. I f*#@ing love it.

It completely changed my meeting habits, creating more time for me to do other things . ..  kept me incredibly organized and focused.

For client meetings, being able to see what was planned and quickly set an agenda is awesome . . . I feel more organized than my previous job.

I often refer back to my notes...what customers said, what's in their tech stack, technical information from engineering. I like having all of my notes in one place.

When the Quarantine hit, our team had to think quick on a solution for our programming. We were able to collaborate via Hugo to get ideas rolling in an organized manner.
