Welcome to the end of daunting task management after online meetings. From now on it’s a few clicks away and once you leave the call your work is done. Microsoft loved the idea and signed a new partnership in Europe. This is how Microsoft Teams has landed a new internal app with a unique feature. IsLucid is a smart digital assistant for conference calls that can finally turn our voice to text to tasks in project management systems such as Jira, Azure DevOps, and others.
“We aim to save time usually needed for task management and to capture more details that can affect the quality of project implementation” says Vytenis Pakenas, CEO and Co-Founder of Lucid Agreements, the company that developed isLucid.
He estimates that after a one-hour meeting, participants usually need at least an additional 15 mins to compile follow-ups and assign tasks. On average, one manager has about 12 meetings a week. This translates to at least 156 hours a year, or around one-month full-time just for creating and managing tasks that were raised during the meetings.

Lucid Agreements, a company based in Northern Europe, is also deepening its partnership and integration with the US giant’s communication platform. The startup became the first Microsoft partner to migrate its billing system from Stripe directly to the Microsoft Commerce platform and MS Teams.
This means that isLucid subscription can now be paid for by a single account, together with a payment for Microsoft product licenses.
In comparison, the typical process of incorporating new tools into the daily life of a company is much more complicated: usually, an employee or a team finds what is needed and tests the solution. If it fits, it’s often necessary to write requests for additional funds for these new tools. Also, very often managers answer with the IT budget in mind.
“While caring for our customers who need to try our product first, and understanding the hectic purchasing procedure for many SaaS offerings, we noticed the opportunity Microsoft has created. We can now offer SaaS experience, assisted with MS corporate knowledge under the same budget line as the majority of well-known Microsoft products,” Vytenis explains.
He adds that the Microsoft ecosystem makes life easier for businesses. Deep integration allows customers to focus on work and products, as the ecosystem itself removes barriers and provides tools for efficient development and sales.
IsLucid, after adding the app to a conference call in the MS Teams environment, can transcribe conversations in real-time. It also detects potential tasks, and allows the user to immediately add verbally agreed assignments to project and task management systems.
Vytenis states that isLucid is the first native app in its category in the MS Teams ecosystem. Currently, neither on MS Teams nor on other remote meeting platforms like Zoom or Slack are there analogous solutions. Especially those that cover the full cycle from verbal to written to task management systems in real-time.
