Hugo vs. the Alternatives

Wondering how Hugo compares to the competition?

Imagine your meeting agendas, notes, and tasks, all auto-organized in one place

Illustration of overwhelmed space person
Without Hugo:
Meetings without agendas drag on and on. Notes, decisions, and tasks are buried in folders, apps, and notebooks.

No one knows who said and is supposed to do what. Momentum dies after the meeting. And if you're a fast-moving remote or distributed team with a ton of meetings...

With Hugo:
Meetings have a shared agenda. You collaborate on meeting notes and fire off tasks from inside Hugo. Finding a note or decision feels like a Google search.

It's the "little universe" where your
calendar, meeting notes, tasks and favorite apps are connected.

What customers are saying about Hugo

Meetings managed so well, your team will thank you

There’s a couple of people who don’t like trying new tools. One agreed to try Hugo and within 15 minutes I got a message saying, ‘I don’t know why I waited so long, this is awesome!’

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 . . . and keeps me incredibly organized and focused.

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.

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.
