What is a Digital AGM?

A Digital Annual General Meeting is when participants attend via an online platform that enables companies and investors to interact online and cast their votes in near real-time, allows them to ask questions, vote and participate electronically, and so much more. 

Swae’s team built a Digital Annual General Meetings (AGMs) product that provides a safe, secure, accurate, and transparent environment allowing every critical shareholder to attend.

How does it work?

Swae’s platform works as an inclusive digital platform for AGMs. It provides non-profit organizations, associations, companies and investors to  interact online and cast their votes in near real-time, cutting the traditional hassles associated with a paper-based and in-person meeting as well as providing members as a whole a reasonable opportunity to participate, helping organizations comply with their legal obligations for proper hosting of AGMs. The platform includes:

  • Digital Registration
  • Auditing & Minutes
  • Collaborative FAQs and Editing 

  • Digitized Voting 

  • Proxy Voting (coming soon) 

  • Video Conferencing Integration, Screensharing & Live Recording (coming soon) 

What are the benefits of a Digital AGM?

Digital Annual General Meetings (AGMs) make it easier for all to attend without any physicality issues or delays caused by traveling problems. Choosing a great platforms creates a safe, secure, accurate, and transparent environment so that every critical shareholder can attend.

The major advantages of holding a virtual AGM:

  1. Every shareholder gets a voice in a safe and secure environment
  2. Companies can say goodbye to paper
  3. The transparent nature of the digital AGM allows for a more inclusive meeting and more stakeholders to have a voice
  4. Allows for an online voting system with data received in real-time
  5. During a time of any crisis, all persons involved can participate from the safety of their own homes
What are the differences between an AGM & Digital AGM?

An annual general meeting, or annual shareholder meeting, is held to allow shareholders to vote on both company issues and the selection of the company’s board of directors. In larger organizations, the AGM is typically the one time during a year when shareholders and executives get to interact.

The difference between an Annual General Meeting and a Digital Annual General Meeting is that a conventional AGM is held in-person in one location, typically making it difficult for some shareholders to attend due to physicality issues reaching the AGM location. Those can vote by proxy typically send in votes online somehow (if offered by the organization), so a Digital AGM creates an environment where EVERY shareholder gets to attend. When using a strong platform for these meetings, a Digital AGM makes it much easier to bring the voice of the all shareholders together in one space. 

What are the drawbacks of Digital AGM?

A drawback of a digital (or virtual) AGM is being 100% reliant on a technology.  Should a virtual meeting fail, due to technology issues (e.g.: WiFi issues or outages), an adjournment would be necessary.

How can I host a Digital AGM?

To get started in hosting a Digital AGM, check your organization’s bylaws and/or governing legislation to ensure that they allow for a virtual (or digital) AGM.

Make sure you choose a SAFE, RELIABLE, and AFFORDABLE technology platform for the Digital AGM. The shareholder’s experience needs to be a productive and positive one. This means you should work through marketing this effort to ensure all shareholders understand the experience they will have online (what they see on their computers, etc.). 

You’ll want detailed communications to members from the first notice of the meeting through to the start of the Digital AGM. 

You’ll also want to reinforce the SAFETY and SECURITY features of the platform so people feel safe in the experience, that they’ll have a voice (voting, etc.), and set up a support team to answer any technical difficulties that users may experience.

Is hosting a Digital AGM expensive?

The simple answer is no. It doesn’t have to be (nor should it be) expensive! 

Swae is offering flexible and affordable pricing to make sure that cost is not a barrier to helping people use the most robust digital and remote platform for decision-making.

Organisational Transformation

Organisational Transformation

Swae drives 

organizational transformation

Transformation doesn’t need to be disruptive.

Swae can help organizations transform by opening up the decision-making process, raising the inclusivity, quality and intelligence of decisions.

Are outdated hierarchies holding back your organization’s performance?

Do you think you can get more out of your workforce?

Do you think decision making can be improved?

Is disengagement a leading question on your agenda?

What you want to achieve…

Swae is the operating system for future forward companies
For Who?
  • CEO
  • Chief Transformation Officer
Key Pain?

You want to powering organizational performance through innovation. New competition, new technologies, and new opportunities are disrupting organizations daily. Despite the deep fear of knowing the organization is at risk, most continue to invest in small, incremental stuff.

The most innovative companies invest in hearing their people and creating a “culture of innovation”, so they can collect better ideas to make better decisions and manage these challenges.

How Swae Helps?

Swae’s platform includes more people in the decision making process efficiently, helping organizations get around the limitations of their hierarchies, and catalyze a culture of inclusivity and innovation.

Swae’s platform helps you hear more voices in a trusted and structured way, raising the quality and the intelligence of decisions.

Game changing technologies are inevitable.
Not every company is able to mitigate these disruptions.
Swae solves that.

Build fast moving, adaptive organizations
For Who?
  • CEO
  • Chief Transformation Officer
  • Chief Strategy Officer
Key Pain?

The world has changed – powerful social and technological forces are reshaping the expectations of the workforce now and in the near future. The best employees today and tomorrow want a voice and want to be heard. The best managers and organizations will want to listen so they can reap the rewards of good ideas. Traditional organizations will either need to adapt or prepare for crisis.

How Swae Helps?

By opening up the decision-making process Swae helps organizations engage beyond the futility of one-way surveys and feedback forms. Swae helps employees have a meaningful voice and participate in important and consequential decisions in a structured and efficient manner. The platform helps organizations and managers make more intelligent decisions from the bottom-up.

Adaptation doesn’t need to be disruptive. Swae can help organizations transform by opening up the decision-making process, raising the inclusivity, quality and intelligence of decisions.

Swae helps organizations adapt to 21st century expectations.

The best organizations push back on structure to improve their innovation performance
For Who?
  • CEO
  • COO
  • Chief Learning Officer
  • Chief Strategy Officer
Key Pain?

Organizational Culture Trumps Structure
Though every organization needs some sort of formal structure, most leaders are stymied by traditional hierarchies and the silos it creates. The most high performing companies who have had the greatest success with innovation have found ways of pushing back on formal structures to prevent silos and encourage important cross-functional collaboration.

How did they do it?

By making the decision making process more inclusive.
Swae solves this.

How Swae Helps?

Swae’s bottom-up decision making process helps ambitious organizations implement a bottom-up and distributed decision making process to drive important cross-functional collaboration. The platform helps users on the front line navigating changing market conditions collaborate across functions to produce timely and powerful market insights.

The system helps leaders within organizations push corporate boundaries into the background to create an agile, open, and collaborative culture that isn’t hampered by hierarchy. The system provides the right incentives to engage.

Without Swae decisions are just as slow and just as removed from market reality as they are in a rigid hierarchical organizations.

Swae helps innovative organizations challenge their processes to make better decisions.

Opening up the decision-making process is the most powerful lever in creating an innovation culture.
For Who?
  • CEO
  • Chief Innovation Officer
  • Chief HR Officer
  • Chief Culture Officer
Key Pain?

Innovation cultures do not create themselves.
Innovation tools by themselves do not lead to innovation cultures if leadership still hangs onto traditional management practices, and command-and-control hierarchical decision-making processes.

Opening up the decision making process to be more inclusive, merit-based and transparent is one of the most powerful levers leadership can exercise in creating an innovation-friendly culture.

When people in an organization believe their voice matters, and believe in the opportunity to influence the agenda, they trust the process and engage more deeply. An engaged employee who trusts the organization invests more discretionary effort and emotional equity than the bare minimum expected. This leads them to unleash their creativity and ideas, engage with others’ ideas to improve upon them, and ultimately help shape and generate better quality ideas for the organization to select from, helping leadership make more effective decisions (from the bottom-up).

Swae-Idea-MeritocracyHow Swae Helps?

By opening up the decision making process Swae helps users that are normally excluded from participating in important and consequential decisions to have an effective voice. This helps organizations and managers create cultures that thrive on inclusivity, trust and accountability, catalyzing an innovation culture. This then helps companies make more inclusive, meritocratic, and intelligent decisions from the bottom-up, fueling organizational performance.

Why?

Transforming how citizens participate in complex decisions that affect them and their communities

Citizens are disengaged, apathetic, distrustful of and frustrated with institutions in government. They feel excluded from decision-making processes in their cities and communities and want to have a say in the evolution of their city’s policies and services.
Most cities don’t have the processes or technologies to include everyone’s voices equally or to try to ensure that inputing ideas are relevant and actionable.

It’s time to fortify the legitimacy and integrity of government by transforming how citizens participate in complex decisions that affect them, from their interactions with government to their community.

Our world is facing some of its biggest challenges yet.
Citizens feel completely disengaged in the decision making process.
Swae solves that.

Swae helps civic employees and city planners tap into the power of collective decision-making to bring new levels of transparency, accountability and a solution-oriented approach to challenges within their communities.

Swae’s platform uses deep listening tools that meaningfully include citizens in the creation of civic services and strategies, fundamentally improving efficiency, and meritocracy, without creating chaos or added work for decision-makers. This transparent, accountable and solution-oriented platform creates trust and increase confidence in government leadership. All the while providing intelligent insights to create a better future for all.

Swae improves your city by transforming citizen proposals into actions. This is done by providing a collaboration mechanic between government and citizens that may previously had limited opportunities to voice and participate, improving inclusion of people, quality of ideas and efficiency in the overall decision making process within your community.
