    Pros
    Their support has been great in helping me with any issues I have, and that has been very few and far between.
    The Board is happy with the software, it is user friendly, displays well on computer, tablet, or phone. As an admin I am happy with the support whenever it is needed.
    OnBoard has been great for our Board members and all users enjoy it. Great communication tool, very easy to use.
    Cons
    Notifications that uploads have been unsuccessful are a little too subtle - meaning that you can miss it if you are working quickly (as we so often are during board pack creation).
    Sometimes the icons are confused and even when you created a page, the icons inside this page are weird.
    The video I could see and hear was choppy and hard to follow. I was unable to log in from my portable devices, and when I thought I was logged in, i could not be heard.

    Drive well-planned meetings

    Reviewed a month ago
    Pros

    The entire meeting planning process is very easy to manage. It allows all our team members to collaborate in real time from anywhere at any time using different endpoints. The minute generator greatly simplifies the workflow. It provides automated meeting summaries that provide highly significant information for later analysis.

    Cons

    It has a wide variety of functions that for new users it is a bit complicated to start using it.

    OnBoard is a must have for meetings in a digital age

    Reviewed 6 months ago

    Paper, ink, and printer fatigue are the first savings we've enjoyed. Changes to the agenda last minute have been easily to upload where everyone can see it minutes after uploading it. Lastly, the time savings (and paper cuts) staff and the admin have from not having to do paper copies anymore has been considerable and very worthwhile. Security of the app is also great.

    Pros

    The ability to meet and view agendas in the OnBoard app has been critical to the bank. In the past if staff or Directors were remote, hard copy items had to be mailed at great expense to them and if there were last minute changes, those people didn't have the right documents to review. Now everything is seamlessly in one spot, organized to perfection, easy to access, and easy for the admin to upload new and revised documents so everyone can view the current information. The time savings from having to print everything is enough to pay for the system and devices to access the meetings.

    Cons

    This has less to do with the software and more to do with some of the features in the app are not easily understood by some older members of the Board that are not used to the technology updates. There really isn't an issue I have that OnBoard hasn't thought of and implemented.

    Review from Langley Lodge - Long Term Care

    Reviewed 4 months ago

    My experience has been very good. I was provided great training by [SENSITIVE CONTENT]. She was able to show me all the features and was a nice addition to the purchase of the software. I sign on daily even when I don't have any work to do inside the software. I really like using it.

    Pros

    The ability to create agendas and meeting notes. In addition the Resource folder is great. The ability to 'drop and drag' documents is a great feature.

    Cons

    There isn't anything I have seen that I don't like. As I move forward, I will assume there will be further enhancements to the software.

    Great Product So Far

    Reviewed 6 months ago

    Great customer service from day one, and I mean from the first sales/demo meeting we had with them. We were given a lot of support to successfully manage a trial. Our salesperson took the time to help figure out a process for us to incorporate our e-voting needs.

    Pros

    The voting tools are fantastic. Approvals were really the biggest function we were looking for and the fact that you can integrate a discussion in to an approval has made our e-voting process very smooth

    Cons

    Although this is really intuitive on the user end, I had a real learning curve figuring out some of the admin features. This could be in part that this portal is completely unlike the one we used in the past. The customer success manager has been great - willing to schedule as much time as we need.
