The Benefits of a Board Portal Solution

A board portal that’s carefully selected can provide a variety of benefits to organizations who want to improve their meeting workflows, work with confidence, and enhance governance. It is crucial to carefully evaluate each feature and not over-engineering with features that can increase the cost. It is also essential that the company you choose to use for your board portal has a track record of success and is able to provide prompt customer service in the event of a problem. It’s helpful to inquire about references and feedback from previous clients who have used their software previously.

Meeting Process Streamlined

Modern portals allow board members to access documents, agendas, meeting notifications and digital board packs via their tablets and smartphones. They allow online note-taking and direct communication between board members regarding specific subjects. All communication is secure logged on the portal. These discussions are automatically converted into meeting minutes, and it is easy to add an electronic signature to any board document.

Board members are able to easily add notes to documents before a meeting to help them prepare for discussions and take part. Meetings can also be conducted in an hybrid format, either in person or via virtual. The possibility of creating a board book from these meetings is crucial as is the ability to have copies of previous meetings that are automatically updated when the line items change. Finally, the option to conduct a debrief after the meeting helps leaders determine the best path to follow next, and record any agreed upon decisions.
