Members Who Serve on Multiple Boards and Committees Have Meeting Access in One Convenient Location

Many of our Board members serve in multiple roles within our organization (other boards, committees, sub-groups, etc.) Easy Board allows us to tag each user with the specific groups that they need to be able to access within a one-stop shop and has eliminated the need for so many different emails out to our Board and Committee members for various meetings.

Pros

We love the "magic link" that allows our Board and Committee members to have one-click access to a meeting and all the associated materials. I like that meetings can have virtual meeting software (Zoom, etc.) links embedded right into the meeting. Having a location to store board-wide organizational documents such as bylaws, etc. is also great to have. It provides easy access to our Board volunteers to those documents.

Cons

I would like to see a function to organize files uploaded into a meeting into sections. I do not like that all the files are just jumbled together. It makes it so the file names have to be very specific for users to determine what they are and where they fit in within a meeting agenda. Being able to order the files in a way that correlates to a meeting agenda would be a great feature. We would also like if in the future, Easy Board might consider adding an electronic voting feature or a way to record votes for a specific action.

Reasons for Switching to Easy Board

Our Board Portal through WordPress was a password-protected area to upload meeting documents, but all other affiliate Boards and Committee meeting documents have been sent out over email which has proven to be less effective that hosting those materials in one location where users who often serve on multiple boards/committees can see everything relevant to them and access it conveniently. No more having to dig through emails to try to find a document!

Board Engagement made easy!

Board Engagement is critical to the long-term success and sustainability of a non-profit. Easyboard has not only made it easy, but it has also provided a platform for which important documents can be stored, organized, and referenced when needed.

Pros

File upload and access to board members in one easy click. The ability for Board members to easily be in touch with one another. [SENSITIVE CONTENT] is super responsive when there are questions!

Cons

It would be great if it could be an app that would make it even easier for Board member to click into. Ability to e-mail a group of Board members who may not be on an existing committee. Integration with Kindful CRM.

Easy Board Feedback

Our board members have adapted to the platform well. We did not have a training session for members, but Easy Board did come in and provide an overview of the platform’s features at one of our board meetings, and we have offered the option of additional training if needed. We do have a handful of members that still prefer to be contacted via email/mail, etc., but the vast majority have adjusted quickly and find the platform to be a vast improvement to prior operations. It’s also very easy for administrators to do most of the work needed beforehand so board members aren’t required to have much involvement.

Pros

I certainly feel Easy Board has met our organization’s expectations. We were involved in the early stages of the product’s development, so we were able to provide input on many of the features, etc. from the beginning, but since implementing and using the product on a regular basis, we definitely feel it has improved our day-to-day operations in more ways than even initially anticipated. Two functions we use most often are the meeting scheduling feature, as well as the people/directory feature.

Cons

Since we have been working with the product since it was in development, we did work through a number of glitches in the early stages, but the team has remedied them all and more since, and in several months, we have had no issues or complaints. We wish their library feature functioned more similarly to a Google drive with the options of folders, etc., but otherwise, we are happy with all features at this time.

Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Review

I have tested and viewed many board portals in the last year. I have worked internally and externally to find a solution that fits the dynamic of my board. It has been a great overall experience and I would recommend this product to any assistant or board liaison in the non-profit field.

Pros

The ease of use for all types of users. The software is extremely easy to set up and start using. My users were able to get in and add to their profiles. The calendar notifications and reminders critical. The ability to archive old members and still retain information.

Cons

There are not many that I can find. I do wish that you could download a folder of files, for organization of materials and not creating too many libraries. Maybe in the next update.

Reasons for Choosing Easy Board

Because of the simplicity of use for my board and the ease of use for me as the administrator.

Great CEO Tool

RFP process was smooth and informative. They are eager for feedback on client needs and how they can solve for these needs.

Pros

One stop for all communications with Board of Directors. All documents, policies, events, etc. are in one place - allowing members to access them anywhere. Excellent tool to manage Board Meetings - calendar function, build an agenda and attachments, and have Easy Board send notifications.

Cons

Have been fully satisfied with this software

Easy Board is a game changer

Prior to using Easy Board, board documents were stored in various places and accessing them was confusing for the board members. Documents that were emailed often didn't make it to the online location for archiving. Easy Board has empowered board members to be independent and fully informed.

Pros

Easy Board is very intuitive to use for even our most non-tech board members. Now everyone can access all board business (documents, meeting information, board member details) by just logging on to Easy Board.

Cons

There isn't a downside to this product in our experience.

Game Changer for Board Connectivity and Accountability

We were hesitant at first to try a solution like Easy Board because we didn't want to add one more layer to our communications with board members. We proceeded because of the need for a central storage solution for board documents, minutes, etc. Our board loves this solution and we received positive feedback from several members on the ease of use. With board members spread all over the U.S. and very busy schedules, Easy Board has become a game-changer for our organization.

Pros

The central storage of board documents as well as the ability to attach meeting-specific documents to the meeting information and Zoom link is amazing. It's also been so convenient for our board to be able to see each other's contact information and term limits through one central solution. The number of emails our admin team receives requesting lost meeting links, board contact info, and past documents have decreased.

Cons

We haven't experienced any drawbacks yet.

Reasons for Choosing Easy Board

The demo was short and simple which was a testament to how easy the product is to use.

Improved communication!

So far, I have found the platform intuitive and easy to use.

Pros

Although we are still working on using this as our only access to information for board members, the ease of uploading documents, on-boarding members, and organizing committees has already been beneficial for improving communication with our Board of Directors.

Cons

I have not had anything that I would add or change at this time. As I work within the platform more, that may change, but have happy so far with the ease of use.

Reasons for Choosing Easy Board

The cost was comparable, if not better than other platforms we looked at. Also, I like the idea of supporting a local business when I can.

We have had a great experience with Easy Board - everything from working with the staff, to launching the platform, to regular use has been easy and efficient - making us more efficient!

Pros

We love that Easy Board allows us to organize all of our organizational documents and board materials all in one place. This means that board members have access to documents and projects as they need them and don't need to wait for us to email them!

Cons

There aren't really aspects of the platform that we don't like - it's easy to use!
