The Smartnotation Vision

Smartnotation anticipates on a keyboard-less era, where the interactions between human and machines are streamlined and optimised to perfection. We believe in designing applications that make use of Artificial Intelligence concepts and technologies to maximise the user experience and effectiveness of the application. We are convinced that new technologies enable us to make life more comfortable and productive by saving time in everyday routine tasks. Taking meeting notes in the traditional way, is exactly such a task. That is why we designed and developed an application, that makes taking notes easy, and in a natural fashion allowing you and your team to focus on your core business.
