One of the most common challenges teams face is getting a quick grasp on what’s going on in the client or prospect journey. Now, imagine if you could take an hour-long meeting and understand exactly what happened and the outcomes in just 90 seconds! (Pure fiction, I know)

What are Summaries?

Summaries are a streamlined way to condense a meeting into a few key components and ensure that anyone reading the summary has a strong high level understanding of the meeting and its outcome.

This insight allows the reader to understand potential opportunities and risks revealed within the meeting and be prepared for subsequent meetings quickly and efficiently. 

These summaries are generated by the platform artificial intelligence and use text captured from the transcript to identify the key snippets of a meeting and collate them into a lovely, accessible summary. 

How do they work?

Summaries are automatically generated from the transcription of your meetings and you can access a short, medium or long version depending on your preference. 

The summary can also be downloaded as a CSV. Summaries are generated within the Playback page of Jiminny where you find the meeting transcript. 

The key takeaway from this section is that you don’t have to do anything once you’ve set up the Jiminny platform; summaries are generated automatically for each meeting / call you have - just sit back and enjoy!

Why are they valuable?

If it wasn’t already pretty clear, the key value of summaries is saving time. How much time is saved every day by having meetings automatically summarized into the highlights depends on how many meetings you have per day but imagine a team of 50 reps.. Spending 10 minutes after each meeting writing up their notes manually.. 

Now imagine if this manual work was replaced with all automatically generated, concise meeting notes.. 10 minutes x 50 reps x 4 meetings per day = A WHOLE LOT OF EXTRA TIME. Wouldn’t that be something? Shame that we can’t generate and push these summaries into the CRM though…
