Board Management Tools are the digital solutions that help streamline the governance of boards and their administrative support staff. These online tools that are accessible via a board portal facilitate efficient, secure, and paperless collaboration on critical issues like scheduling meetings, distributing materials to boards, recording minutes and making sure that the board is in conformance (depending on the industry) with the relevant regulations and legal requirements.

It is designed to work on any device, the most efficient board management software is accessible for desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones. This flexibility is a benefit for board members who are on the go or working from home. The most effective solutions also provide an organized dashboard and calendar view when you log in to allow board members to stay in touch with forthcoming meetings, action items and important news.

For administrators the most important feature of a board management tool is that it can save them time by making tasks quicker and simpler to complete. The tasks can be assigned and recorded to specific users, with deadlines and reminders. This will eliminate any confusion or oversight. Administrators can focus on more value-add tasks.

Another benefit is the possibility of interacting with board materials outside of meetings. Digital board portals provide dynamic meeting schedules and surveys. These features help to increase engagement and increase accountability, while ensuring transparency throughout the group throughout the day. Board members can also write their thoughts on the documents of the board with annotation tools, and keep track of their responsibilities and follow-up actions in the same meeting.
