BoardPro
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.

Pros
BoardPro
  • 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.

  • Voting -- there should be a mechanism for board members to vote through the system
  • Minutes -- meeting minutes should automatically be generated based on attendance and online voting
  • Public Facing Page -- we need to publish our agendas and minutes on our website. I would like it if there was a way we can put links on our website to BoardBookit.

Other than initial setup, we haven't really needed support. I do wish that they would roll out more features.

BoardPro is on a different playing field than monday.com, in fact, BoardPro is in a league of it's own. I used monday.com at a different organisation board and actually found that I did not use it. I found it easier to download and read the PDF board pack that was provided to me. The user interface of BoardPro is such that the software is easy to navigate and use, it is intuitive and such a delight to use.
