Created in 1995, the G9+ Institute is a think tank that works on digital issues through reflection, debate and conferences that focus on one main issue: how can companies use the digital transformation as a lever for social progress?
Today, it federates around 30 alumni communities from engineering schools, management schools, political science schools, and universities—each represented by two volunteer experts. As they carry out their role in parallel with their professional activity, members exchange mainly at a distance and rarely in real time.
The mission of the G9+ is to constitute a laboratory for exchanges and reflection on information technologies, but also to coordinate and promote various initiatives.
The G9 brings together several communities of alumni, all of whom work in parallel. Tired of relying on email, which became too laborious for organizing meeting, sharing documents and just interacting with people, the G9+ Institute opted for Talkspirit.
There are 3 main reasons why the Institut G9+ chose Talkspirit:
After a preliminary phase during which Talkspirit was tested in the office, it was deployed in 2016 to all members of the G9+ Institute.
As an association, the G9+ Institute must make a certain number of documents available to its members, such as its statutes, rules of procedure, or minutes from meetings. Storing documents in a classified/structured document database allows everyone to easily find and access the information they need—especially elements related to current projects (which are easily identifiable)! This system saves a lot of time for the Secretary General, who no longer has to send documents by email every time a member requests them. For example, after meetings, minutes are published in the group dedicated to the event, and everyone can consult them at any time.
Organizing G9+ Institute events entails gathering around 50 members each month, which can quickly become tedious. Thanks to Talkspirit's group conversation settings, meetings are easier to manage, and exchanges are better structured (no more hundreds of emails to sift through!). Before each meeting, details are shared in a group dedicated to the event, and discussions around the agenda are managed in a structured way. Finally, thanks to the shared agenda (and connected to personal agendas such as iCal or Outlook), all meetings are noted. No more excuses that you forgot!
Thanks to the "online polls" feature, members who cannot be physically present at the meetings can nevertheless take part in the association's debates and decisions. Thus, each member can make his or her voice heard and influence the choices / orientations of the association, which would not be the case if the meetings were 100% in person. Finally, when a decision is voted on, the association keeps track of the votes and discussion that led to it. All this clearly increases the feeling of belonging to the network and of each member's involvement.
