Useful, practical, and easy to use.

Allows me to focus on my governance job.

Pros

BoardPro makes coordination and logistics of board meetings and papers easy for board members. All info in the same place and and not mucking about with lots of different systems and software.

Cons

As a user I have no major gripes. It works for me

Alternatives Considered

Diligent Boards

Reasons for Switching to BoardPro

I use both these other tools in one other board role each. I currently use BoardPro for 3 boards. Diligent is good but expensive. Also seems to require more administrator skill and expertise to set up and use well. Not a big fan of BoardTrac. Seems a bit limited in functionality - but maybe I just haven't invested enough time to understand it and its features fully. And therein lies one of the reasons I like BoardPro - because I can spend most of my time and effort in just using it rather than learning how to use it. Very intuitive.

Response from BoardPro

Perfect value for money option.

I think the customer service and overall experience with BoardPro is great. I would definitely recommend it to any business looking for a good value for money option. Excellent functionality and affordable enough to convince your CEO that the software is good value.

Pros

BoardPro is a fantastic product. I like the functionality of the software in that the minutes integrate actions and decisions directly into each register. The documents also look great. They aren't too clunky and they are laid out nicely.

Cons

I think the security settings could definitely be improved. Quite often there are papers that I would only like for the Board to see but I can't lock them down by individual paper and so I have to limit executive access to all papers and / or run a separate set of papers to remove the confidential papers. I also think that you should be able to add a paper under an agenda item instead of having to create another agenda item below as sometimes it will duplicate. For example, it would be great to drop the CEO's Report under a CEO section item rather than having to drop it down into e.g. 1.1.

Diligent Boards and Convene

Reasons for Choosing BoardPro

There was no functionality at Boardable. I have also used Diligent (who I actually also highly rate) but it's too expensive for any organisation that I have worked for.

Boardable

Reasons for Switching to BoardPro

Best value for money product with the most functionality. Other software only exports pdf copies of papers for mark up which doesn't make sense to me. The whole point is the security of your documents.

Outstanding

Happy! It's a fantastic system for board papers.

Pros

I like the fact that members of the Code Authority can vote on motions to changes to the work plan and vote on other items. The ability to set up meetings is seamless and easy, anyone can do it!

Cons

I wish we could hold live voting via Boardpro during our meetings.

Response from BoardPro

Hi Blake, thanks for your review. I have passed your comments on to our support team who will reach out to you. We do have a live meeting voting feature. They'll show you how to do that.

BoardPro - the Best

Extremely satisfied with the online support and would recommend highly.

Pros

I was a new user to Boardpro 18 months ago and found the support to be extremely helpful and the response times quick.
I found the programme was easy to navigate and user friendly.
Since I have started using BoardPro I have introduced another client to it and they have purchased it based on their own research and my recommendation.
The set up was easy and the client is very happy with the training links.

Cons

At this stage I have not used any other programme apart from BoardPro as the system was set up prior to me starting to use it so cannot compare to others.

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

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.

Reasons for Switching to 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.
