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.

This is great for running challenges as you can hold and manipulate the data however needed. I use it as an advertising CRM very effectively.

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.

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 have been using
so often but once your team grows it costs a lot of money, to be honest. Stackby could be a great fit for our team but of course,
is a more mature tool. I'm really hoping that Stackby reaches the level of
at some point one day. For now, we have been using more similar tools simultaneously, unfortunately.
