OnBoard vs Boardvantage

Board Portal Comparison

Choosing the right Board Management Platform can impact your organization for years. At OnBoard, we believe everyone should have the best information possible before making a big decision.  

”There has be worse portal software out there somewhere, but it’s hard to imagine. Antiquated login procedures, attachments don’t always stay attached, doesn’t function at all with Android phones, hard to print from it. None of our Board members are happy with it. Almost surely it would be better if NASDAQ didn’t own it, in fact maybe it was better before NASDAQ owned it.”

Clunky & Unresponsive Customer Service

"We were very disappointed with Boardvantage, they have been flogging a product they developed a long time ago to get the most money out of it without having to update it. “Their product is clunky and difficult to navigate, and their customer service -- which we needed often -- was unresponsive. We are now elated to have a partnership with OnBoard

Exceeded Our Expectations

“I think the greatest parts of Onboard's Board Management Software is the ease of use and the security in the portal. It is not only easy for our Board Members but it's easy to set up and maintain from a technical standpoint.”

“We Love How User Friendly The Product Is.

Whether you are an administrator or a user it is easy to navigate. We had tried board meeting software in the past and were unsuccessful in transitioning the product but it was too difficult to use, so we were skeptical. OnBoard exceeded our expectations. Even our most "non-tech" members can use the product with ease.”
