Board Intelligence product overview

What is Board Intelligence?

Board Intelligence is a specialist suite of online solutions aimed at corporate boards, whether within the public or private sectors. The centralized, cloud-hosted software spans the three key processes of Write, Manage and Read to deliver greater efficiency over the distribution of board report packs. With traditional paper-based alternatives fast becoming relics of the past, more forward-thinking boards demand the speed, flexibility and convenience of digitized meeting materials instead. Boasting end-to-end board reporting capabilities, Board Intelligence's "Write" module represents a comprehensive report writing toolkit for concise, punchy production. Emphasizing critical insight over weighty waffle, a library of best practice writing templates and online training guides support the writing of better board papers. Data tools then help with the display of facts, figures and statistics with templates for generating static graphs, tables and interactive charts.

Key benefits of using Board Intelligence

  • Board Intelligence is a three-pronged cloud solution for digitizing the end-to-end production of executive board meeting report packs, automating the process for improved efficiency.

  • A "Write" module provides a toolkit for first the writing of board reports that are half the size but doubled in insightful impact, offering guidance to users with best practice templates, online training materials and data tools for adding charts.

  • The "Manage" module automates board pack production from commissioning to compilation with the ability to plan customizable agendas, upload files quickly, order pages and indeed publish finished papers.

  • Promising an intuitive platform for viewing packs, the "Read" board portal provides an iBooks-like digital library with secured password-based login along with smart tools for searching and drawing annotations.

  • Aside from browser-based web access, Board Intelligence supports Windows 10 and iOS platforms with native apps available.

    Pros
    Very pleased indeed at the relationship I have made with the BI team. The product is great and the customer service (as I have said elsewhere) is superb.
    The 24/7 technical support is highly responsive and effective and the customer service is friendly, informative and engaging.
    Ease of set-up, ease of use, great value and superb customer support/service.
    Cons
    Drag -and-drop functions would facilitate migration of files across the different shelves/bookcases.
    The agenda is not flexible and we cannot customise to add our own fields so we have to produce our own separate agenda.

    “The Board Intelligence application has proved an extremely efficient and practical tool for the management of our board level and other committee meeting’s governance.

    Pros

    The application includes ease of collation, management and sharing through a secure electronic link/app providing assurance when distributing large, complex and sometimes highly sensitive papers. The standard templates, drag and drop function and adaptability are valuable facets of the application at the admin level, where as the ease of use and annotation function is widely appreciated by users which supports effective meeting outcomes. The 24/7 technical support is highly responsive and effective and the customer service is friendly, informative and engaging.

    Cons

    There is nothing about this application that we have come across that we not like.

    Vendor response

    Hi Laura, Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review, we really appreciate it. I'm delighted to hear such lovely words about the product and our team. Over 60% of our business comes from referrals so it's really important to us to have advocates such as yourself. Thank you. Best wishes, Suzi Executive Director, Board Intelligence

    Reviewed 7 months ago

    Excellent experience and would recommend the software. We use it daily and never have any complaints from users/the Board.

    Pros

    It is easy to upload documents, move them around and publish packs. Packs can also easily be replicated and moved to other shelves. The system is very reliable and the support team are really helpful and resolve issues quickly (in the very rare cases there are any issues).

    Cons

    The agenda is not flexible and we cannot customise to add our own fields so we have to produce our own separate agenda.

    Vendor response

    Hi Diane, Thank you so much for your review - we're so pleased you're finding the system easy to use and reliable. We're always keen to capture ideas from clients, so we've shared your comment about more flexible agendas with our Product Team and also your Account Manager, who will be able to explore this with you further. Thank you again and best wishes, Suzi Beese Executive Director, Board Intelligence

    Board & Board Committee document portal.

    Reviewed 7 months ago

    This is a secure and reliable means for sharing sensitive information with users who do not have accounts within our IT domain and therefore can access our cloud drives, etc.

    Pros

    Very easy to use and coordinates well with our IT environment. Good support to get it set up and whitelisted, etc - very cooperative and able to understand and work with the IT team. Day to day support is good but not really needed - it just consistently works well in the background. Support is usually prompt to reply and efficient to solve issues.

    Cons

    Main things which need development are item by item permissions, and in-app agreement to documents/resolutions. But these are not critical.

    Vendor response

    Hi Simon, Thank you so much for the review - we really appreciate it. We're always looking for client ideas and I'm pleased to share that our team are working on 'paper by paper' permissions which will be launched with clients soon. Regarding your other suggestion, our platform already enables 'Simple Electronic Signatures' through the App's annotation tools, and we'll be releasing enhancements which allows for Advanced Electronic Signatures in the future. I've shared your feedback with our Product Team and Account Manager, who will be able to share more information on these with you. In the meantime, thank you again for your support, Best wishes, Suzi Beese Executive Director, Board Intelligence

    Effective and easy to use

    Reviewed 7 months ago

    The BI team are constantly seeking to evolve the product. Our Account Manager and helpdesk staff are very helpful and quick to respond.

    Pros

    Intuitive system to use and administer. Responsive 24 hour helpdesk staff. Proactive in adding value via tutorials, networking events and seminars.

    Cons

    Does not upload directly from Sharepoint sites except via File Explorer. There have been some spooling /outages when building packs, and times when directors have needed to reload the app to get access.

    Vendor response

    Hi Jennifer, Thank you so much for your review and we're delighted you're enjoying our programme of client tutorials and events. We're sorry you've experienced some problems with our pack builder and app - improving the performance and stability of our platform has been a priority for the team over the last few months, so I hope you've had a smoother experience. If you have any questions, please get in touch with your Account Manager and know that our BI24 Support Team are always available to help. Best wishes, Suzi Beese Executive Director, Board Intelligence

    Great Product, Easy to Use - First Class Customer Support

    Reviewed 6 years ago

    Be using Board Intelligence software (Board IQ / Read) for about 15 months and it has been great. Easy to set up, great functionality and if you do get a problem, support is on hand 24/7 to help you solve the problem. Our Governors have taken to it really easily, and this has changed the way our governance model works. We have since rolled it out to other areas of the business including the Senior Leadership Team with huge success, all of which has resulted in pay and non pay savings whilst having all the key information at your fingertips in a secure environment. Have recommended it to colleagues and will continue to do so.

    Pros

    Easy to use. Customer Service. Great functionality.

    Cons
