BoardEffect Feature Reviews

9 reviewers had the following to say about BoardEffect's features:

Tim Alexander

In our third year, with over 30 Member Colleges using the platform and it has been just great.

2018-03-08

Secure, online Board management and communication services designed for non-profits to be successful.

Pros

Intuitive interface, very user-friendly, quick uptime for new users, a reasonable expense for a non-profit, ultra-secure data transmission and storage, and great people supporting the entire platform.

Cons

This is probably the price for having a highly secure and intuitive interface.

Mark Walker

Solid software for boards with room for improvement

2018-03-08

Pros

There is every feature you really need to manage a board, but there are improvements that could be made to make it even easier, but it would require partnership with other software companies and a robust API. See below for more.

Cons

Having a robust API and partnerships with software companies like Fluxx could allow a seamless flow of information between systems, which would negate the need for wasting time on export and preparation of documentation for BoardEffect.

Outstanding!

2018-03-19

It has made keeping Board documents easy and building my board books is so much easier than the old manual way.

Pros

Putting together my board books is a snap now; I can follow easily who is attending and who can not make meetings; I have one place to up notices and send out meeting information.

Cons

Attached files become a level within your agenda as opposed to being a supporting document. I'm still playing with the email templates, but will master them yet.

Ivan Ramos

Very straightforward product to use

2016-10-07

This product does a very nice job for communicating with your board members, getting RSVP for events and posting your all your documents. It consolidated the duties of primarily two staff members into one system.

Pros

Ease of use. Customer support is very good.

Cons

The email tool need to be more robust on formatting.

Great product backed up by a great team

2018-03-27

Pros

BoardEffect is very easy to use and gets the job done!

So far I've not encountered any difficulties with the platform, but I'm sure if I did their outstanding team would be waiting in the wings to point me in the right direction.

We've been a very happy BoardEffect client for five+ years. A great tool for our board.

2018-03-08

Pros

Some of our favorite things about BoardEffect include: it is available on a variety of platforms; easy to set up and use; provides an archive for historical information; everything our board needs can be found in one simple and safe location.

Cons

There is not much that we don't like about BoardEffect. One thing I'd like to have is unlimited groups without having to pay more.
