For companies and organizations within the financial services, meetings are what's runs the business. Why? Because it's where they meet with clients, talk with prospects and make the company grow. Financial services run on meetings. It's a client business with a large amount of foot-traffic of external guests and visitors.

Poor, or no systems, kills productivity and has an impact on the overall workplace experience.
Meeting planners can easily spend more time scheduling the meeting than the duration of the meeting itself. On average, a meeting or conference can take 20 minutes to book. Moreover, this might not even include ordering associated services like catering, a table arrangement, AV equipment, or contacting facilities management to ensure that the right IT equipment is onsite and operating in the room. In a business that runs on meetings, this is costly and a considerable source of wasted resources every day.
