Choosing a Board of Director Software Portal

A software for board of directors solution is more than a convenience for businesses. Boards need a mobile solution that will allow directors to access board materials from any location. The technology should be easy to use for directors and offer seamless access across all devices, no matter if they are on the move or at home. It must be safe.

A well-selected board portal can help your company save time and money. When evaluating the various options available, look carefully at the initial costs and ongoing expenses. Be sure to look at the complete set of options that each one offers and the impact of varying security measures. Some companies selling board software offer basic professional, enterprise and versions. It is important to evaluate the features when making comparisons of prices.

In addition to saving administrative time, a good board portal can provide advanced tools that improve the experience of meeting for both members and administrators. For instance, many companies offer a “anytime and anywhere” approach that gives directors the ability to connect using their mobile device or a web browser. Certain solutions allow directors to take notes in meetings and share their thoughts in real-time. Additionally, some solutions allow for electronic voting and the attachment of signatures to documents after meetings.

Another feature to consider is how the tool promotes good governance, for example, adding health and safety issues on the agenda or soliciting the approval of minutes at the next board meeting. A good portal for boards is easy to update and expand over time.
