Board management software is an excellent tool to run meetings. It does this by reducing the need for printed materials, eliminating the requirement for certain personnel to attend meetings, and allowing remote attendance making the whole meeting process more efficient. It also helps reduce administration costs for scheduling meetings and helps the environment by embracing paperless meetings.
Not every board management software is made equal. When evaluating different choices, you should look for features that are relevant to your requirements, such as secure storage of documents or quick support. Once you have a list of “must-haves” it is time to evaluate different providers. A good provider will offer trial periods for free and allow you to run a live meeting in the system, so that you can see how easy it is for everyone in your board cycle.
Make sure that your solution is compatible across all devices (desktops and tablets, as well as mobiles). It should be easy to use and feature an elegant, simple design. It should be equipped with features like laser pointer and page synchronisation. It can also take notes and record the meeting. Participants should be able to use their preferred electronic signature app in order to comply with the law.
A good board portal will provide members with powerful tools that increase the participation at meetings. This is achieved by allowing members to make decisions by using polling tools and then putting the results on a dashboard for quick analysis. It should also allow members to assign tasks, inform about the progress of their jobs and set deadlines.
