Parting words from Michael and Rick

It’s hard to express how grateful we are that you chose to take this journey with us and use Instant Agenda. From the very first day we started work on the product, until the day we shut down, the focus has always been on you, our customers and users. Every phone call, email, support message, product update or user survey was about finding better ways to help you run productive, engaging meetings.

We deeply regret and apologize for the short notice we are able to give regarding this shutdown. We did the best we could to do right by you, our customers.

It is unclear if Instant Agenda would have become a self-sustaining, profitable product. We’ll never know. But, we will remember all the great conversations we’ve had with you over the past two years, all we’ve learned from you, and all the people who wrote to tell us how much better we made their meetings.

We wish you all the best. Meetings don’t have to suck. They can be productive, engaging and efficient. But you always knew that; we were just helping you along a bit.

On behalf of the Instant Agenda team:
