order food and arrange for guests to be picked up at the reception; perhaps you even have to sort out a parking pass.

Surveys show that each employee during an average week spends up to five hours on administrative preparation for a meeting.

order food and inform the reception about guests attending the meeting.

The applicable organisational units automatically receive a notification on what is expected

from their side and at what time – and because the system is similar to what the employee already knows,

it takes almost no time at all to get familiar with it,” explains Mørch.
