Board portals enhance the governance of companies of all sizes and shapes. From an centralized hub that facilitates meetings as well as documents and communications to the secure delivery of sensitive information, they allow board members to be focusing on strategic decisions rather than petty logistics.
No matter if your business is an international healthcare facility, corporation or a charitable organization, or a public company, a robust board management software program can help to streamline agendas for meetings and document distribution. One of the major features is the capability to send changes and updates immediately and in real-time, no matter where directors are. This ensures that your directors have access to and viewing meeting materials on any device.
This eliminates the frustrations and costs associated with sending out physical documents that could be lost or outdated in a short time. Modern board portals also provide numerous other features that increase the participation of members, such as actions items being linked with agenda items, and the ability to allow members to vote online during meetings.
The most effective board portals are easy for everyone to use, regardless of their level of tech expertise and will adapt to the needs of your governance. Ask your vendor about how they can help their clients with ongoing remote training and one contact person for assistance with password resets. Also, you should inquire what type of starting fees they charge, and how they will charge for any additional committees and administrators, as well as their data storage policies.
