Simple, efficient – where were you 20 years ago!?

I came on board to take a small not-for-profit and expand it nationally. Board Pro instantly solved what could have been weeks of designing a governance system. Each month we save hours of administrative work.

Pros

Board Pro replicates the board governance process that I have used for years. Everything in one place, board packets are easy to produce and modify. Board members are able to use the files as they wish – online or download the PDF. I love the fact that the formatting is automated. Board Pro saves at least four hours of administration time setting up the board packet. The price point makes it easy to decide to go with the software. It is without peer.

Cons

Small and responsive, the team at Board Pro seemed to anticipate any improvements I could ask for. Impressively, they routinely ask for feedback and ideas.

Reasons for Choosing Boardpro

the personalised service and contact eclipsed everything else. Friendly, reliable, responsive, a great value-price point.

BoardPro for a seed stage hi-groth startup

We would be significantly worse off without BoardPro. Our Board management would be cumbersome and inefficient. We cant afford that, however neither can we afford to be 'loose' in management of the Governance processes for the business. BoardPro gives us a cost-effective solution. It has bvecome an essential part nof our business operating system.

Pros

We have fond BoardPro to be an excellent way of centrally managing the entire Board and Governance process. We have distributed Directors and started as a very small exec team. Because we were planning an additiona capital raise it was important that the governance process was disciplined and well documented. BoardPro has achieved this and impressed our Directors, the legal teams involved and our American VC's as well. Fair to say that we rely on BoardPro to manage this aspect of the business completely.

Cons

BoardPro works very well as is. It will also benefit from ongoing feature development. Specifically we would like better calendar control and additional registers maintained by the system (beyond the register of interests). BoardPro maintain an active, user driven feature request process and both these are on the list. BoardPro sits as a stand alone tool within our business. Its capabilities overlap with other tools (share registry management) so we are careful about document storage and other areas wher eit is possible to create multiple versions of the truth.

Reasons for Choosing Boardpro

Other products were to complex and too expensive for our use case. Diligent was clearly not intended for the smaller startup style business. It was difficult to even understand its basic operating methodology.

Love it!

This has streamlined our entire Board process. From sending the Agenda, to minute taking. I love how quickly my questions on how to do something is responded to and sorted quickly. I am so happy we made the leap and I believe we will remain with BoardPro for a very long time.

Pros

I love how you can copy a standard agenda to the next meeting. So things remain standardised across the meetings.

Cons

Not much on this - as with all software implementation. You don't know what you don't know. So the beginning felt a bit like creating the wheel, but that was only for a very short time.

Reasons for Choosing Boardpro

Felt the best fit to our organisation along with the value for money.

Board management solution that not only removes stress but adds real quality to governance

BoardPro helps me use my time more efficiently in preparation of Board meetings. Whereas our Board Packs in the past consisted of a range of separate documents that were at times not easy to work through, Board Pro automatically compiles a single pack that follows the Agenda sequence, and has a contents page. The ease of pulling minutes and decisions of prior meetings into future meetings saves a lot of valuable time, and helps us ensure that we do not miss important actions. Overall, our governance has developed significantly through just using BoardPro as our meeting platform.

Pros

Easy to use features, like using agenda templates, automatically adding due decisions, easy edits. Time-saving features - click through options for common tasks. Professional looking documents, and help provided to prepare documents. Secure storage of meeting and governance documents in a logical structure and single location. Ability to access meeting documents online or have it emailed to members. Very affordable pricing for a non-profit organisation.

Cons

Getting used to terminology (like 'roll back') and what it means. No ability for members to edit meeting documents collaboratively.

Reasons for Choosing Boardpro

Fantastic cost discount for a non-profit organisation. Familiarity of current Board members with BoardPro. Use of BoardPro by other hockey and sports boards, and positive references received.

Reasons for Switching to Boardpro

We had security concerns over Dropbox as a Board management tool. Documents were stored in a somewhat effective file tree, but still consisted as a series of individual documents for a Board meeting, which made preparation for members difficult at times. We needed a solution that was easy to use, offered a single storage location that was secure, and helped us prepare more professional board documents. BoardPro ticked all of those boxes.
