Board management software is an ideal tool to manage meetings. It makes meetings more efficient by reducing printing of materials, eliminating the requirement that certain people attend meetings, and enabling remote participation. It also saves on administration costs when scheduling meetings and can help the environment by encouraging paperless meetings.
Not every board management software is made equally. When looking at different options, look for elements that are essential to your requirements, such as secure document storage and fast support. Once you have a list of “must-haves” you can evaluate different providers. You can conduct live board meetings on the platform and also get an initial trial for free from reliable providers.
Make sure your solution is compatible with all devices (desktop, tablet and mobile). It should be easy to use and have an attractive, simple design. It should have features like laser pointer, page synchronisation tool and shared annotations. It should be able record and keep minutes of the meeting. It should also enable participants to use their preferred electronic signature application to ensure compliance.
A good board portal also provides members with powerful tools to increase participation in meetings. This is accomplished by allowing members to take decisions through polling tools and funnelling the results into an easy-to-read dashboard for quick analysis. It should also allow members to assign tasks, keep informed about the progress of their projects and set deadlines.
