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.

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.

If someone should not be in the workspace, they will not be invited and provided access to the documents. Or, they can be removed from the workspace if needed. Communication about documents is located with the documents in a discussion thread under the document preview. Thus, email inbox clutter can be limited.

BoardPro is on a different playing field than
, in fact, BoardPro is in a league of it's own. I used
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.

Sharepoint is very flexible, but very clunky and slow when all one needs is a quick document management solution.
is a great, rich document management system, but until recently focussed less on the collaboration piece.
Read full review Return on Investment It has made meetings more enjoyable and flow faster We are able to get through the formal agenda quickly and focus on strategy The strategic decisions that have occurred as a direct result of using BoardPro have added real value to Search Republic Read full review This has made it a lot easier for remote workers to access important documents without needing to use the VPN at home (which does not always work). It clearly shows who updated the last document and when so it is clear who you need to ask if you have questions or something. We have used it in client settings, so this saves money as we do not need to request a separate client laptop or VPN token. Read full review ScreenShots
