This Tuesday Bart, Anouk and I went to Lille for the extra meeting of the International Steering Committee of C2C BIZZ. We expected a lot of discussions on the indicators and the division between the partners. Therefore we planned to use almost the whole afternoon for this. We started at 12:30 PM and after an hour and a half we discovered we were more than half way through the presentation and the documents. Agreement on the indicators was much faster and easier reached than we expected and we finished this part of the meeting really early. For me this was a pleasant surprise and now I have the feeling we can stop discussing and really start working.
Fortunately we had another agenda item. Some months ago the JTS asked us to be part of a pilot for a new online financial reporting tool. We were honored to be chosen, so we said yes. Last Tuesday the JTS presented the new tools to the partners and to us. I think it looks really simple and user friendly, but I don't have to work with it. This is Bart's task and he will be busy in the coming days, sending information to the partners to help them submitting their payment claims.
