Perfect for the small-medium not for profit board.

5.0 3 years ago

Pros:

Intuitive. Simple. Easy to use. And probably more importantly saves board members (who are all voluntary) time and effort. This is why we choose BoardPro. Everything in one place. Everyone on the same page.

Cons:

There are a couple of features I’d love to see implemented, and the great thing is that BoardPro has been super responsive to incorporating this feedback.

Alternatives Considered: Diligent Boards

Reasons for Switching to Boardpro: BordPro was responsive and appropriate for a small not for profit organisation and board. It made the essential governance processes easy and well managed without being ‘corporate’ style and bloated.

Intuitive affordable and brilliant Board management platform

5.0 2 months ago New

Comments: I love BoardPro and highly recommend it to others looking for an easy to use, affordable, and robust Board platform. The few times I've needed help, the customer service team is the best I've ever worked with...not just for Board platforms either.

Pros:

I love BoardPro! It's so nice to have a centralised place for our Board to access their agendas, board papers, calendar appointments, links for digital meetings, interest register, etc. As the Board secretary I found it easy to navigate and figure out on my own (although their customer service is the best I've ever received for any online platform I've used...not just in the board platform space either!). Taking minutes is easy, recording decisions and assigning actions is a breeze - and if I make a mistake, the roll back minutes feature is brilliant as I can roll back to a previous save point. We looked at several other Board platform options and the price point is very affordable in comparison. We've now expanded to include some of our sub-committees and it's a great feature to have access to.

Cons:

The only branding item our comms team has asked for is to be able to upload our brand font so that PDFs that are exported are in our font - but that's not a huge priority for us. The functionality for the Board and myself (Board secretary) is so impressive.

Alternatives Considered: BoardEffect, Diligent Boards, Boardable and Azeus Convene

Reasons for Switching to Boardpro: Free trial, easy to use, affordable, offered the features we were looking for, and customer service is the best I've ever worked with!

Intuitive Software that will transform your business meetings!

5.0 2 months ago New

Comments: Our journey with Boardpro has just begun. The service they provided has made us feel like they are now part of our own business 'family'.
Their knowledge and belief in the ability of their product is definitely backed up by the functionality and solution that their software provides. They are more than just a software solution, they are a team of experts that seem driven to help other businesses.

Pros:

Boardpro is truly so simple to use. The suggested templates are genius and the time is saves the board is immeasurable. The designer clearly has small and big business in mind especially with the option to add committees - really well thought out. Boardpro customer service has been a complete joy and needs to be mentioned. Response times are within minutes and the team is knowledgeable, friendly and driven to delight their customers!

Cons:

The fact that it was not around years ago!

Alternatives Considered: BoardEffect, OnBoard and Diligent Boards

Reasons for Switching to Boardpro: Pricing, designed to work with small and large companies, exceptional knowledge and solution driven customer service.

User Friendly Board and Committee Meetings Sogtware

4.0 2 years ago

Comments: Good, I was an early adopter and seen it's functionality grow steadily over time - I am happy to recommend it for my clients and contacts to consider. Very good communication with the company.

Pros:

I really like the ability to access all the areas via browser, add in notes to my copy of the papers, find past papers and actually generate / print a Board pack if I needed to. The responsivity of the help from the company is very good too.

Cons:

Actually I struggle to think of anything material as a con.

Alternatives Considered: Diligent Boards

Reasons for Switching to Boardpro: Diligent required Ipads and was targeted at the "big end of town" - entry level for BoardPro was much lower.
