The best scenarios for the use of BoardPro are highlighted when there is planning, development, coordination, execution and monitoring of projects and activities, in addition to being an information panel for all the members of the different teams of the organization, it provides the ability to hold meetings, an integrating element that stands out from other software. The management of the boards is exceptionally intuitive and easy to use, in addition to simplifying its content in a way that is easy to understand for all people, granting continuity and consistency to the work or works to be developed. An area of opportunity where it could be developed in a better way is offline work, since it will not be possible for your team members to work in this way.

In our small membership-based organization, we have many stakeholders both internally and externally. GoProof doesn't require accounts and is extremely user friendly. I find even the most technology-hesitant person is comfortable using GoProof. Many within my company take advantage of a flexible schedule, but that means reviewing marketing projects under deadlines can be tricky. GoProof can be easily accessed and proofs quickly reviewed. The system then notifies all stakeholders of updates so fewer emails need to be sent. It's much more efficient and I find work is completed much faster.
Read full review Pros Agenda-setting and writing minutes is very easy with the built-in structure offered Compiling and distributing Board packs with BoardPro takes a fraction of the time it used to - and updates to papers are so much easier Ability to hold all governance documents in one central repository is useful for external Directors Directors find the Board paper annotation feature very useful. New updates to this have made it an extremely powerful tool. Flying Minutes feature is very useful for obtaining formal decisions between meetings and then automatically adding them to the next set of minutes. The ability for Directors to update their own interests in the Interests Register is efficient and puts the responsibility on them to ensure this is up to date - this is automatically included in each Board pack. The actions feature is fantastic - allocating a person responsible and an action deadline which then is followed up by BoardPro email reminders keeps people on tasks and allows the Chair to stay on top of actions as they are reported in the Board packs each meeting.
