Does your company track and manage business operations in a weekly Operations Meeting?

Sometimes it might feel like a distraction for the flow of the meeting to stop and write down the summary. Wizergos Speech Recognition feature for minutes make this easy and merge seamlessly in the flow of the meeting.

The Decisions feature in Wizergos helps companies to manage and track their decisions.
