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.

ActiveMeetings works well when you want to conduct pre-scheduled meets with a clear agenda and want to get inputs from stakeholders to close things quickly. It's not really so useful for general chit-chat or catchups with teammates as the extra features aren't useful in the scenario. It also has some friction when doing cross-org collaboration.

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.

  • The UI interface could be much cleaner
  • The cost of the software is high considering the value many free softwares provide
  • Not everyone has ActiveMeetings so cross-organization collaboration has some friction

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.

ActiveMeetings offers much more power in terms of setting the course for the meeting, getting real-time inputs from stakeholders, and closing things on the go compared to Zoom or Google Meet. However the interface of ActiveMeetings isn't as clean as intuitive as it is with Zoom, and especially with Google Meet.

  • Meetings have become much more meeting with ActiveMeetings prompting for an agenda every time you set a meet
  • You can club all relevant documents for the meet in one single doc which is really useful to avoid clutter and confusion
  • This is still a hindrance when collaborating with people from a different organisation
