Andrew Brill

Boardable has made organizing board activity incredibly successful.

2018-06-12

Easier board management and consolidation of processes.

Pros

Lots of features that are incredibly functional. Calendar is very clean and easy to use specifically when it comes to checking who has replied yes to the meeting invite.

Cons

Which means the product is a work in progress and does not have total functionality right now.

Very easy to use and navigate

2017-10-03

Having one place to send and receive messages and store documents for the entire Board to see.

Pros

I think the easy of use and being able to organize documents in a logical way.

Cons

It would be nice if there was a data tag that said when and who the document was sent too.

Joe Caruso

Simple, affordable and does what it needs to without the high price point. Great for small boards.

2017-12-20

And everything has permissions settings to allow/ disallow access to pretty much anything you like.

Pros

It's simplicity. Very easy to use and has a quick learning curve.

Cons

It is a little limited on a few, just a few, features compared to some other really higher prices choices. But they are continuously making changes and adding upgraded features. This was the only reason I didn't give the features 5 stars as it wasn't the perfect solution (for our needs) , but hey, nothing is ever perfect. Extremely close though and wouldn't really consider this a con.

Boardable is easy to learn and use. Any questions I have are answered quickly.

2017-12-19

I appreciate the ease of use in keeping all documents organized and in determining who has access to them.

Pros

Everything needed for a meeting is easily connected to that meeting and documents are easily filed after the meeting.

Cons

The only issue some of our users have with Boardable is the inability to make notations within a document. Also, as an administrator I would like to be able to rearrange documents in the Document Center.

Crystal Grave

This is a great tool that eliminates the need to send lots of documents to Board members.

2017-09-21

The software reduced communications, hunting for documents and collecting Board votes for online voting.

Pros

It cuts down on problems a lot of Board members face at larger corporations with blocked file sharing tools like Box, Dropbox or Google Drive.

Cons

I think there are some opportunities for some small design changes, and some opportunities to add in other tools that would make sense like screenshare, conferencing, committee communications, etc.

Boardable is a great to easily connect all of our board members in one central place.

2018-01-25

Pros

It centralizes all of our board minutes, documents, etc and allows us to get away from a long trail of email for communication. We also really like the voting and scheduling features.

It took a while to figure out to use the document adding feature.

Boardable is such a user-friendly software. It really helps organize and streamline communication.

2017-09-20

Pros

Instead of clogging up your inbox, communication is archived through the Boardable platform.

Cons

Because Boardable hasn't even been up and running for even a year, sometimes bugs occur. However, the Boardable team is always so quick and diligent about responding to feedback and improving their product to make it the most efficient, most impactful software for its clients.

Boardable has greatly improved the way I work with my Board of Directors

2018-01-29

The most impactful thing this software has allowed me to do is mobilize my board members more effectively to make faster and more well-informed decisions.

Pros

I love how easy it is to keep my core members informed.

Cons

The company is still young; I would love to have better API integrations but I'm sure those are in the development pipeline.

2017-10-14

Pros

Boardable is great for keeping track of events, communications and documents in one place.

Cons

One big improvement worth pursuing is a better IU on mobile, otherwise, there's nothing I don't like about it.

Carol Smith

It has streamlined our board communications and document storage in one convenient place for board meetings and committee communications.

2018-03-13

I love this software; it has eliminated the need for dozens of emails before a board meeting. It is only a little over a year old, so they are still perfecting it and are very responsive to questions, requests for help and are open to users requests for changes in the way they do things.

Pros

Google Drive, and One Drive to a meeting Unlimited storage capacity

Cons

So far can attach only one document at a time; they are changing this to multiple document attachments If a document is attached to a meeting and you want to store it in the Document Center, you can't.

Great product. Getting even better with every new release.

2017-11-14

Ease of communication with my volunteers

Pros

Ease of use. This is a simple way to communicate with your boards and committees - really any group of people you need to gather together for discussion!

Cons

The polling options need clarified a bit more - they are not as intuitive as the rest of the software is.

Simple and Easy to Use

2018-06-22

Pros

I like the security features that allow each group to only see information pertaining to their particular group.

Cons

There are still a couple enhancements that I would like to see, but their customer service team is very open to hearing new ideas that will ultimately help everyone using the software.

Gary Vought

Using Boardable over the last few months has been a great improvement for us from paper handouts.

2018-03-21

Organization of board documents will be especially helpful during any transitions.

Pros

After researching several online board portals, we found Boardable to be the most economical for us. It has all the basic features we need.

Cons

We would really like to see the app for tablets and phones, a way for board members to make notes on documents as they review them.

Response from Board Management Software


Dear Gary, thank you so much for sharing your feedback. We're glad to hear Boardable has helped your board members move away from printed materials. You are in good company regarding wanting to see the agenda in the meeting page! We've heard this feedback from others and we're working to address this in an upcoming product release.

It's 4 AM in San Francisco, but work hours somewhere and the site seems to be down

2018-04-26

Pros

Site has been up five of the last six times I've tried to access the in the last couple of weeks.

Cons

Website is inaccessible; appears to be down but no way to tell. Fortunately, the Board Meeting is not later today and will have time to update. Board meetings are probably pretty important for you too, so it would be good to check on uptime statistics, especially in the time zones where you work, before moving relying on this platform.

Response from Jeb


Albert, thank you for your feedback. We recently launched a new website and did have some downtime. Although we did not log any product (app.boardable.com) downtime, our marketing website (boardable.com), which has a link to login to the product, was down for some time during the launch. We notified Boardable account owners in advance of the possible disruption but it appears the communication that went out wasn't sufficient. As such, we have reviewed our advance communication process. Thank you for your user experience feedback; it's highly valuable to us as we grow and improve our processes. Thank you for being a Boardable customer and I appreciate your kind words about its ease of use. Jeb Banner, CEO, Boardable

I have had only positive experience using Boardable from the get go. No training required to use it.

2017-09-18

Pros

Ease of use, great for scheduling meetings, engaging in discussions, sharing documents, allows different committees of a board to have their own independent discussions, schedule their own meetings and share documents that can be viewed only by the members of the specific committee.

Love having our Board documents, reports, minutes, attendance all organized in one place!

2017-09-18

Pros

It's brilliant to create a central place for all board members to have access to everything they need to be a successful and active part of any board.

Cons

As a nonprofit, we are frugal with our well earned dollars. Although, I see great benefits to using Boardable, this is an added expense for our organization.

Hi Tim, thank you for your review! We appreciate the feedback around support and log in issues. We are working this week to improve both of those experiences, look for updates soon. If you would like us to provide a demo of Boardable during a board meeting to answer questions and show all its functionality, we would be happy to set up screenshare for that. Thank you, Jeb Banner, CEO, Boardable

We research several board portals and Boardable won out on best value for the money

2018-03-13

We were able to go paperless for all board meetings and communications.

Pros

It is easy, not so complicated, so our board can intuitively log in and find what they need.

Cons

It may lack a couple of bells and whistles that some of the more sophisticated products have, but for the money it wins out BIG time.
