Swae helps Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders Canada rapidly adapt to remote decision-making by digitizing their AGM during the Covid-19 Crisis
The COVID-19 Crisis is requiring companies and their leaders to rethink and prioritize their digital infrastructure and speed up plans for digitization. The need to empower internal and external stakeholder collaboration and communication in a virtual environment is likely here to stay. From team coordination, alignment, consensus building, strategic formation, governance and policy-making, our physical decision-making processes need to adapt to a world where much more must happen online.
To answer to evolving market demands, Swae has developed a suite of new products to serve the remote and digital-first reality. Swae’s new products build off the existing core technology platform to further enhance safe, secure, and easy-to-implement online-only methods of communicating and collaborating. These new products include Digital Policy Making, <, and Remote Team Decision-Making tools
While we have had many clients use Swae’s core platform so far, including Etihad Airways, The Ministry of Innovation and Labour at the City of Juarez, Mexico, and Bosch, the digital AGM version of Swae is a first use case for Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) who will utilize it to for their upcoming virtual Motions and Recommendations General Assembly in June 2020.
In 2019, Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders initially partnered with Swae to hold a more digitally friendly, inclusive, and efficient motions and recommendations review process using the first version of Swae’s platform. In light of the Covid-19 crisis and building off of last year’s positive experience, earlier this year the Canadian section of MSF renewed the partnership and contract with Swae to create MSF’s first virtual Motions and Recommendations General Assembly in 2020 using Swae’s new Digital AGM product (in combination with other governance tools at their disposal such as videoconferencing, website, etc.).
Swae’s Digital Annual General Meetings (AGMs) product creates a more safe, secure, accurate, and transparent environment allowing every shareholder to attend.
“Given the implications of the COVID-19 global crisis, now, more than ever, people need the right tools, platforms, and safe environments to make high-quality collective decisions about a lot of things that remain uncertain. We’re proud to renew our relationship with MSF to pilot our latest product — Swae for AGMs. This product helps organizations create a more inclusive decision-making process, create more transparency, and develop healthy competition for the best solutions. Never has it been more important to ease the tensions and make decisions with utmost buy-in,” said Soushiant Zanganehpour, CEO, Swae
“We’re very excited to be working with Swae again. This year our AGA will be hosted online and Swae’s platform will ensure that despite the challenges of COVID19, our motions process can go forward smoothly and the voices of our members will continue to be heard,”
Anne Connelly, Board Member
Motions and Recommendations Committee, MSF Canada.
