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.

While Monday.com has its complexities, I still believe it's a great tool to collaborate across functional areas. I love the project planning and the robust functionality Monday.com has to offer. While I may not be 100% comfortable with all of the functionality, I'm learning and enjoying the experience.
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.

For developers, it would be extremely useful to track code changes on feature requests, such as integration with GitHub. The ability to add task dependencies would be invaluable. This would allows team members to be alerted when a project has landed on their plate after those before them have completed necessary tasks. Read full review Likelihood to Renew

monday.com usability is amazing. For so long, my company has been utilizing excel for every aspect of our work, from building the workflows themselves, to project management and actual actions. monday.com not only combined hundred of our excel sheets into 4 boards, it also came with the training teaching us to do so, AND helped every facet of my company be centralized into one software. This has made managing multiple teams and projects easier than I even thought possible.

There have only been 2 instances in the past year where monday.com was down.

Everything performs fairly well. Every now and then there are user errors where an employee will not click "ok" on a note they've created and simply exit out (I do wish that something was in place to prevent this, such as a pop "are you finished?")

To have someone walk you thru the features and capabilities of Monday.com is priceless. Someone also coming along later in the contract to see if you are maximizing the program to suit your company needs is beyond helpful. The staff that have provided this training are fun, creative and very patient.

We signed up for the accounts. Created the accounts. Ran the trial version and tested it live while we were running multiple projects and found that it was fitting our needs perfectly. When the trial ended and we were asked to purchase the full version, we did. We have found other ways to use it and it's a breeze.

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.

We used an excel spreadsheet to track our month end close process previously which created a lot of issues around only one person being able to be in the checklist at any given time. Additionally, we were unable to have excel notify us when a task we need to have completed was done, but Monday.com has completely changed that for us!

For it to work across multiple departments and sites, I would like to see improvements made with integrations and automation. For this question, I am acknowledging not only the addition of internal triggers/automation, but also an expansion on external ones.
