CMISLite, making lite work of complex governance...

CMISLite is a cost-effective web-based governance and meeting management solution designed for smaller organisations, such as town and parish councils.  CMISLite provides a simple and intuitive interface allowing users the opportunity to save time and money with effortless meeting preparation.

CMISLite is designed to support smaller organisations to simplify complex governance. The solution empowers clerks and administrators to compile meeting packs within a matter of minutes rather than taking up valuable hours during the day.  

Requiring no software installation, CMISLite can be accessed from any modern web browser as well as the MyCMIS app.  Being a totally secure solution, documents and meeting information can be accessed anytime, anywhere giving a truly agile and paperless working environment.

CMISLite has helped us take the vital first steps towards ‘Digital by default’ council meetings, moving the mountains of paperwork we use online whilst providing a useful reference point for councillors to retrieve documents and saving hours of an officer’s time when creating agenda and minute documents
