The Danish Agriculture & Food Council started using FirstAgenda in one of their foundations in 2012. Since then, it has spread like wildfire to the rest of the organization. The result: They are saving time and money compared to the manual processes they used to use. Today, FirstAgenda is the primary meeting tool for all of their boards and foundations. Using one tool for meetings accross the organization makes it easier for both administrators and those who are members of several boards.
“Now we have a lot of flexibility,” says Jesper Bollerslev, IT Consultant at Danish Agriculture and Food Council. "Previously, documents were gathered in large folders and sent to participants. Now, with FirstAgenda, we avoid the extensive paper use and the rigid procedures that we had before. We save both time and money and we have a great deal of flexibility. It’s great that we can make corrections right up to the deadline without being nervous about whether everyone has received the changes. It makes things easy that administrators can log on from anywhere any time. "
The Danish Agriculture & Food Council (Landbrug og Fødevarer) represents businesses, trade associations and farmers’ associations. With annual exports of more than €20 billion, agriculture and food is one of Denmark’s largest industries.
