Overall Satisfaction with BoardBookit

BoardBookit was purchased to support the Board of Directors for our non-profit organization. Prior to BoardBookit, we use to pay a consultant to manually compile board packages using Adobe Acrobat. There were some issues doing it manually--error resolution, ease of use, large file sizes, etc. Now that we use BoardBookit, my entire board knows where to get the information they need. Before the board meetings, they can review and annotate the files. During the board meetings, they can follow along on their devices without having to dig through a paper package that is normally hundreds of pages long.

BoardBookit now is also used by board committees, advisory committees, and the school site council. Next year, we hope to transition our PTSA to using BoardBookit.
  • Document Management -- very easy to add attachments and push out
  • Meeting Scheduling -- very easy to add meetings and get RSVPs to make sure we have a quorum
  • Historical data -- storing of historical documents and meeting minutes is super easy.
  • Voting -- there should be a mechanism for board members to vote through the system
  • Minutes -- meeting minutes should automatically be generated based on attendance and online voting
  • Public Facing Page -- we need to publish our agendas and minutes on our website. I would like it if there was a way we can put links on our website to BoardBookit.
  • Board meetings are more organized.
  • It makes me, as the Executive Director, present a professional image during board meetings.
  • BoardBookit works particularly well when board members are not all in the same room for meetings.
Other than initial setup, we haven't really needed support. I do wish that they would roll out more features.

Do you think Govenda delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Govenda's feature set?


Did Govenda live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Govenda go as expected?


Would you buy Govenda again?


BoardBookit is well suited for the following scenarios:
- Brown Act compliance
- Board members who attend meetings remotely

It is less appropriate for the below scenarios:
- Situations where you don't need a formal board meetings
- Board members who are not tech-savvy
