Pros

Thus the ability to access and share information securely and seamlessly is one of the greatest attributes of the product.
Customer service is amazing. Like the ability to reuse templates so I don't have to re-type everything.
It's an awesome software and I'd totally recommend for any company secretary. It's worth every buck invested.

Pros

Transparency, organizational qualities and paperless are the greatest benefits. By largely cutting back on copy paper, this District saved more than the annual price for the software.
Love BoardDocs and the ease of use. Has great features and the customer support is outstanding.
I appreciate how easy it is to create agendas and to move agenda items around within meetings or between meetings. Also, the search function is amazing.

Cons

I'm frustrated that the web version and one-click are not identical yet and wait for the day that the web version can do the drag and drop the same way that one-click does.
My only criticism would be that i do have concerns of how documents we upload on a PC may appear visually on the users iPads.
As we are a not-for-profit organisation and not a listed company, we don't use all the features but there is no aspect of the software that we don't like.

Cons

Sometimes during a meeting there is lag time making it uncomfortable for the audience.
Sometimes it is hard to do charts in boarddocs.
Unless you have the Pro version, there isn't much that the software offers. But the Pro version is very costly.

Diligent Boards

Resistant to Love It!

Reviewed 2 years ago

I find the customer service people to be exceptionally knowledgable, friendly and helpful. Many times when I call and ask questions, they will go above and beyond in an explanation, send tip sheets or provide short cuts. I have even had them say to me, that is an excellent thought processes and way of doing "it", whatever I'm calling about, but then offer an easier solution or another thought or...

Pros

What I like most about BoardDocs is the ease about using it. I feel its fairly intuitive, easy to pick up on as its similar to other software programs you might use, they have built a great platform for allowing multiple ways to use the product. We have been using the software for almost two years and I would not go back to doing scanned PDF packets on our website ever! I was resistant through several demonstrations or communications with sales people. The last time, I felt that I finally could envision myself using the product and having it be useful, time-saving and user-friendly. I was ready to jump on board!

Cons

The software does not allow for a lot of individualization or specialization, such as on the featured page which is similar to having a home page. I would like to be able to customize this page or other aspects of the software more to reflect our own district trends or social feel. I also do not like that once reports are submitted, especially if they have executive content, the person who wrote the report with the content, can no longer see the report they wrote when it comes to making revisions or changing anything if its been submitted and at the meeting can no longer see the executive content even if they were the one who wrote the report.

BoardDocs

I have found BoardDocs easy to convert to, not only for myself, but for my board and administrators.

Reviewed 5 years ago

Ease of prepping the monthly Board agenda and minutes. It saves time and energy - there is no longer a need to spend hours at a copy machine producing the agenda and backup after spending time typing the body of the agenda. The use of BoardDocs also makes for a more efficient board meeting - the boards members have everything they need at their finger tips and do not need to go through reams of papers to find a specific backup item.

Pros

I like the ease of using the software. It is functional and provides excellent manner to keep accurate records of our board meetings. The search option provides the ability to find previous actions without a hassle. And, the mega search is great when researching policies or those occasional resolutions that are of a different nature.

Cons

The only thing that I would like to have ability to do is move attachments into the minutes. I know that the BoardDocs personnel are listening to the field and making adjustments and changes to the functionality of the software and maybe one day this will be one of the new features.

Vendor response

Hi Cynthia, thank you for sharing your positive experience with BoardDocs! It's great to hear that it's made managing board meetings simpler. We really appreciate your feedback and always invite you to provide feature suggestions to our team as we continue to develop our product.
