"This is an excellent board tool. Mobility, no paper, ease of navigation, brilliant note options. The ability to quickly find previous papers and minutes is also very helpful for accountability."
Paul M
Chairman, Mid-Market (51-1000 emp.)
"BoardPro has proven itself indispensable. The structured approach makes it easy to compile agendas and Board packs and then use this same structure for creating well-organised minutes. Being able to search for previous decisions and minutes, as well as easily keep tabs on actions is fantastic. The reminders that BoardPro sends out keep everyone on task, without the Board Secretary needing to be too involved."
Virginia C
Board Secretary, Mid-Market (51-1000 emp.)
Staying at the top of your professional game! In the past, preparations for Board meetings were a nightmare as there were always literally mountains of paperwork to prepare, photocopy and share with Board members. This was such a tedious task, not to mention not great for the environment. Now, with BoardPro, all meeting documents are virtual and there is no longer any need for photocopying and wasting so much paper. This has cut our meeting cost down significantly.
Arieta D
Human Resource & Compliance, Small-Business (50 or fewer emp.)
Completely changed our board meetings! The software drastically improves organization of documents and communication before and after meetings. It gives us a central place for recording and reviewing minutes. We use the action items feature extensively, which automates everything so nothing slips through the cracks. The technical support is impressive.
