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.

Pros

BoardEffect helps us all with great information, insightful articles and the tools we need to help us help our board be more effective. The product name is fitting.
It is the one place we can all trust to have the latest documents and tools to help guide our board governance. It has made our board feel successful individually and successful as a whole.
I love the user-friendly design and the appearance and ease of use for the end-user. Finding documents is easy; iPad app is great; building meeting books is easy; customer support is very good.

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.

Cons

Many of our users have a hard time finding things and it is mainly because they have to click quite a few links to find something and they get lost.
It's difficult to get all of our Board on the same version. Not everyone updates as the versions come out and things move just enough that it's always a little bit of a struggle to help them.
There's not too many drawbacks to this software. It can sometimes be a bit difficult to navigate the actual classification of materials when uploading them into the portal.
