The board portal lets directors share confidential information and access it from any location on any device. It's a faster and secure way to send emails, print documents, and arrange meetings. This allows for more involvement and communication between directors as well as more efficient flow of information.

While implementing a new system for managing boards can be time consuming for both board administrators and members, it does have numerous advantages. Board Portals are designed to streamline meeting processes and help modernize governance. They make it easier for directors to conduct their work. They provide seamless user experience that works with existing devices and also integrates with Microsoft Outlook and Google Workspace. They also guarantee the security of your data by streamlining voting, action items, survey integrations and a full audit trail.

Whether you are an existing user of a board portal or planning to set up one for the first time, it is essential to research the features that are available. Evaluate the level of accessibility for board members and administrators as well as the availability of mobile apps. Also, inquire about the roadmap for the product and the way in which your voice as a customer will be heard in the future enhancements and development. Additionally, consider cost savings as any amount saved from the cost of running a committee can be reinvested into other areas of the organisation. This is especially relevant for non-profit organizations that typically operate with a small budget.
