The Project Cargo Network (PCN) has invested in a bespoke virtual meeting centre where its members can connect using common platforms such as Zoom, Google Meet, Skype, and WhatsApp.

The system, which is currently in development, will help accelerate successful business relations, said PCN.

The meeting centre will have three main features: the ability to set up spontaneous meetings across several communication platforms with time zones automatically considered; the ability to host ‘virtual meeting weeks’, with numerous one-to-one meetings with other members; and a meeting manager function that provides an easy-to-read schedule on your mobile device.

The meeting manager function can be used by members to arrange face-to-face meetings prior to their arrival at the network’s annual summit, which is scheduled to take place from October 17-19, 2021, in Croatia. PCN’s next virtual meeting week will take place in July.

“As we enter 2021, it has become clear that the workplace impact of 2020 will not be a temporary one, and that we all need to adapt and change how we work to stay competitive and to ensure business continuity,” PCN added.
