Xero
It is well suited for clients who are on the road and they can send their receipts in for purchases from their phones. This has enabled us to get receipts prior to being lost or damaged so it makes the matching process in QBO much easier for us. Clients like to scan multiple pages at one time and vendors invoices/bills. This is less suitable as they need to do individual scans since Hubdoc cannot separate them out.

OnBoard
OnBoard is an adaptable platform that could be used for most meetings. It works perfectly to build an agenda and packet for board and committee meetings. It allows for easy RSVP to ensure a quorum at meetings. All users are able to easily view the packet and can even make notations of points they want to discuss during the meeting. OnBoard doesn't work well for detailed documents such as spreadsheets. Our company has a strategic plan and we cannot use OnBoard for that committee meeting. The size of the spreadsheet simply doesn't function well within OnBoard and isn't easily navigable. The same is true of certain financial spreadsheets.

Pros
Xero
  • Extracts data from documents both from a feed and a scan really quick.
  • Availability of automated feeds directly from the supplier.
  • Integration with accounting software e.g. Xero (now owned by them) and QBO.
  • Ability to auto-archive to many different cloud storage locations such as Google Drive and ShareFile.

OnBoard
  • Secure board materials - the administrator can control what board members see what materials.
  • Contact information - email and mailing addresses are readily available.
  • Board terms - term lengths for every board member is tracked through the system.
  • Meeting feedback - simple surveys are sent immediately after a meeting to get feedback from meeting attendees for future planning.

Cons
Xero
  • Although it is great that they can automatically get bank statements and transactions once linked, these links have been very unreliable historically.
  • Figuring out how to set up the automatic feed is cumbersome. You can land up being inundated with useless transaction data.
  • you have to upload each document separately. The program cannot differentiate/split PDFs.

OnBoard
  • Currently, you cannot block an entire group from a topic; you need to block attendees individually.
  • it would be nice to indent a section by using tabbing.
  • the added button for "save changes" in each section tends to slow down progress; edits used to be saved automatically and tended to be faster.

I couldn't imagine us doing our business without OnBoard [Board Management]. It has become the way we communicate with our Board and run our meetings. Frankly, I have no desire to go back even when we are meeting in person to paper binders for each board member. It truly has been a blessing coming out of COVID for us.

OnBoard is extremely user-friendly. I believe many individuals could begin using it without instruction just by clicking and looking around. It is very intuitive and the setup makes sense. I have older members on my board and they can use OnBoard with no issue and no training beyond an initial overview. During the pandemic, I've had some new board members easily use it without instruction since we weren't able to meet in person for an overview.

At the time we implemented Hubdoc (more than 2 years ago) it was quite cutting edge and did have strong advances from the competition plus its pricing was definitely more competitive (flat rate vs price per data extraction model). However, currently the competition has caught up and now many of Hubdoc's core features are being built into online accounting software natively.

I haven't needed to contact OnBoard customer support many times because it's user-friendly and functions as it's supposed to/sold. On the occasions I've contacted customer support, they have promptly answered the phone or my email. In one instance, a board member couldn't access OnBoard prior to a board meeting and customer support was able to resolve the issue in the 10 minutes prior to the meeting. In another instance, a board member wasn't able to get the system to recognize all answers to a completed survey which prevented a compilation of results. Customer support viewed the member's screen and ran an error log to figure out the issue.

Implementation was easy and I was able to do it alone without OnBoard customer support, although customer support assistance was offered and available. The platform is very user-friendly and doesn't require assistance to implement in my opinion. The biggest hurdle is getting invitees to access the invitation email and set up their login.

Alternatives Considered
Xero
We did not get far into evaluating other solutions we were looking at because Hubdoc came highly recommended from peers, coupled with Xero and Gusto. The cost for Thompson-Reuters is high. We quickly honed in on Hubdoc due to cost and recommendation and are very glad that we did.

OnBoard is more user-friendly. It is very easy to navigate from an administrator's standpoint as well as for the end-user. I received compliments on a regular basis from our board members and how grateful they are that it is so easy to use. They also love having the Resources where all of our important documents are located. Other tools that I have used were very clunky and hard to navigate and the cost was greater higher.

Return on Investment
Xero
  • I don't have actual hard figures but I know it will save a lot of time for us. We can save an incredible amount of time letting Hubdoc do the tedious renaming and filing.
  • By syncing with cloud storage like Google Drive or Dropbox, Hubdoc provides an extremely valuable service of information security by backing up our data.
  • Hubdoc allows us to let an intern or newer employee be more productive because all they have to do is make sure that the scans are good quality and then upload the files to Hubdoc (which has a very easy to use interface). Any files that need special attention can then be addressed by a more senior member of our staff.

  • It's helped maintain board and committee involvement in the nonprofit since the start of COVID
  • It has allowed our meetings to go virtual with little effect on workflow
  • It allows us to better track needed association materials than we have in the past
