I’ve been looking for the right meeting assistant for years. Excellent ones like Gong.io lead the industry but cost thousands per month and aren’t affordable for many startups or small businesses.
Here’s what both apps do:
- Automatically record calls on Zoom and Google Meet by joining the meeting as an attendee.
- Transcribe calls using GPT to make the transcriptions much more accurate than anything pre-AI.
- Automatically save meetings with timestamps for takeaways, topics, or questions covered in the call. Click on what you’re interested in and it plays that portion of the call.
Here’s what you need to know about Read.ai:
- Seems like it’s designed more for enterprise teams, or for managers reviewing rep performance en masse. Scores meeting performance and participation. Gives feedback on attendee engagement, talking pace, interruptions, non-inclusive terms, bias and more.
- For each meeting it documents: summary, chapters & topics, action items, key questions. The chapters & topics are usually accurate and helpful, but nothing else.
- Meetings often don’t record, or nothing besides the transcript is documented. Each time, support told me it was a bug they’re fixing.
Here’s what you need to know about tl;dv:
- Simpler approach: meeting reports contain “takeaways” throughout the call. AI does a good job of recommending these, plus they place a button in your meeting client so you can manually set markers with one click during a call. Great for when you know in real-time that something is important.
- Integrations for automatically logging calls and highlights in HubSpot, Salesforce or Slack.
- Easily create clips of takeaways or other key moments and share them.
tl;dv is my new everyday meeting assistant. It’s reliable, accurate, and has already saved me hours of sifting through sales/client calls to find information.
Read.ai is good too but worked on less than 75% of my calls. It also seems like it’s made for monitoring employees. These features don’t take away from the experience, but the bugs do. I’ll try it out again in a few months to see if they’ve ironed out the issues and improved the quality of action items and key questions.
tl;dv is offering 30% off your first 6 months if you click this link.
