Choosing a Board Portal

A board portal is an online platform that helps improve governance practices, increases meeting productivity and efficiency and decreases time involved in administrative tasks such as creating, sharing and disseminating documents. Companies can realize a significant return on their investment through reducing the amount of paper used, printing costs and reducing hours of labour.

The new board portal provides a secure environment for the exchange of sensitive and confidential information, and also an easy alternative to traditional methods of distributing documents. For instance corporate secretaries can design and distribute board packages at the touch of a button. This allows immediate updates and ensures that directors can access to the most current version of board materials and documents.

In addition, a current board management software program can be utilized on devices that directors already have. This allows directors to be more accessible and efficient. Board members can access the portal on a variety of devices including tablets and desktop computers. They are also able to participate in discussions and collaborate with fellow directors and the board administrator, regardless of whether they are in the same room or around the globe.

When selecting a portal for your board it is crucial to choose one that is intuitive for users and easy to master. The more user-friendly a tool is it, the less training directors and administrators will require for its use. It is important to consider the technical skills of your board members and arrange training sessions to suit the needs of your board members.
