It forces people to identify priorities, make tradeoffs and finalize a plan.
It cuts through indecision by showing consensus and highlighting disagreement.

Have your team vote and quickly gain insight on what your team thinks.
Save the meeting time, save the world. Too many meetings get stuck in the brainstorm stage. With ForceRank, everyone comes to the meeting with priorities identified so the conversation shifts from argument to resolution.
Let's walk through an example of how we can use ForceRank to help our team decide which features we need to finish before we release a Beta.
First we'll build a questions and define a list of choices. In this case it's all the possible features we could build. We also add a "Release Beta" choice and tell people to prioritize it at the point where they think we should release.
Then we just send an email to our colleague and they can jump right in and start ranking the choices.
Success! Now we have responses from my 5 colleagues. You can see the overall preferences of the group on the right. The results are colored so that we can easily see outliers. It looks like Mike and I generally agree. But you can see that when I hover over the second choice on Mike's list I actually ranked it much much lower. Sounds like we should discuss that one.
Finally we can also compare everyone's results against the overall scores as calculated by our algorithm.
The goal is to have smarter, better, faster discussions. Using a system like this you'll find you don't even need to discuss some options because they're either unanimously important or unimportant. On the flip side, the major disconnects in your group will, quite literally, glow red and allow you to focus in directly on what matters.
