Chairperson, Artspace NZ

Good to be getting all of our paperwork online & readily trackable. And super helpful to have the minutes out (with actions) immediately after each meeting. Simple things... but they make a large difference to our effectiveness.

"Our board processes used to take up too much precious management time. Your system has cut that in half"

Vernon Rameka

"You've got a really powerful tool there. We really like the ability to drag in documents and automatically compile a board pack with renumbering done automatically. The interactive PDF is good for our trustees. I like the action item reminders and overall you're saving us 20-30% of the time we'd spend preparing for a board meeting."

Its working really well for our board - they now come to meetings with their devices and just download their papers- no printing extra copies.

Our secretariat also loves boardPro, it makes her job very efficient.

Chair, Selwyn Sports Trust

"I handed our secretary a laptop at the start of a meeting and said try this (boardPro).  She had never used it before but picked it up instantly and, long story short, the minutes were out the next day with everyone clear on the actions for the month.  That’s a big change from receiving the minutes the day before the next meeting.
The next meeting when looking for approval to purchase boardpro she said  “I’m not going back, if you don’t buy it you may have to find a new secretary”

I saw an opportunity to facilitate the meeting in an easier manner - and boardPro certainly does that"

Although we encountered a small problem with boardPro first time round, the customer service and resolution was top notch. And, as we say to our staff "Problems happen, its how we deal with them that counts."

“Board agendas, documents and notes are a nightmare using the typical combination of emailed docs and a drop box. I’m pleased to see boardPro in the market”.

"BoardPro made a very time consuming and labour intensive job way easier. When I was using it the other day, I kept on saying that “I was in love”, because I was.

The board process is a job that I don't really have time for yet have to do really well"

Tony Coombe

Contract Executive, Corson Grain limited

"Boardpro reduced a stressful day's work into two hours work with no stress"

"Previously a secretary would spend an entire day compiling the papers - ordering them, working on the index, ensuring page numbering was accurate, checking page settings and printing and collating and mailing individual packs. It was always stressful and became a nightmare with late changes and redoing board packs."

"I was 'chatting' with Kim earlier and had conveyed to her how thrilled we are with BoardPro - as an Accountant (and very much not a Board Secretary) - I have found BoardPro really helpful

Being able to drop all my financials and commentary directly into the upcoming meeting in BoardPro is fantastic, particularly as they are then available in the Board pack for downloading."

"I am delighted that my board really enjoyed the program – even an elderly board member who has really never been on a computer managed to use it. Even completing the minutes as a first timer took me about a third of the time I would usually take – and the relief of having them done was an extra emotional bonus!"
