A board portal solution gives directors more time to make strategic decisions and less time to deal with meeting management and logistics. In order to realize this it is essential that your chosen board management software offers a comprehensive set of features that allow admins to streamline the daily management of meetings and to enable directors to spend their time focusing on strategic matters rather than small logistical issues.
The ability to build and update a meeting book in real-time across multiple platforms and devices, means that directors can review meeting materials and prepare for meetings at their own pace. This is particularly true of Gen 3 board portal solutions that are designed to work with any device and platforms, including iPhones and iPads, laptops and Kindle Fire.
This kind of unified access makes it simple for directors to check their documents even when they are in a different location or traveling. A reputable company will offer a variety of support options, such as FAQs and how-to videos remote training, as well as a single contact point.
The best board portals integrate all the features that directors might require to perform their job effectively including document management, voting, communication and reporting. This means that there is no need to manage a myriad of different tools or platforms that can add complexity and cost. In addition, boards portals are designed to work on the devices used by directors – whether it’s an iPhone or a laptop – which eases the learning curve and provides a smoother, more engaging user experience.
