What's Board Management Software?

Sometimes referred to as a board portal, board management software is an app or website explicitly designed for secure access to board meeting materials and to facilitate collaboration between directors, administrators, and management. Board portals utilize a secure-cloud infrastructure to deliver digital meeting materials to phones, tablets, and PCs. Board portals streamline the creation and distribution of board materials by the board professionals that support the corporate secretary and consumption of the board materials by the directorship.

Industry Best Practice for Board Portals

Service and security should be central when selecting a board portal provider. A board meeting solution should increase the efficiency of your administrators, provide robust security measures, reduce your printing and shipping cost, be simple to implement across your organization, and be compatible with every phone, tablet, and PC.
Today, board portals are not just the province of board and executive committee meetings, it is just as common to see them used by leadership teams, management groups, loan committees, IT steering groups, resource allocation committees, nominating committees, and a variety of working groups.
