Manage joint steering
committees effectively

Before an upcoming committee meeting, you can
create a meeting in Inova and invite the umbrella team,
providing them with access to important documents
and allowing them to start collaborating in advance.
Afterwards, meeting minutes are shared, next steps
are simple to track and easy to follow-up on.

reminded of upcoming ones, so nothing is forgotten.
Both financial and non-financial obligations can be
triggered by a due date or milestone completion.
Your memory isn’t flawless, but thanks to Inova,
