BoardEffect board management software drives efficiency, effectiveness and engagement among board directors, executives and administrators.
More than 1,300 leading organizations use BoardEffect’s board management software to manage board-related information online and advance the work of their boards. Hospitals and healthcare systems, nonprofits, foundations, educational institutions, government entities, companies and many others leverage BoardEffect to support the dynamic, nuanced, critically important work of governing bodies.
The work of boards is complex, demanding, and high-stakes. It is also cyclical in nature. Boards convene on a regular meeting cycle, deliver on a recurring set of annual responsibilities, and continuously work to refresh and strengthen themselves as strategic assets to the organizations they serve. These represent three different operating cycles, each with its own pace and components. The functionality and workflows of BoardEffect have been designed to support boards as they manage the responsibilities inherent within these demanding, interdependent, and mission critical cycles.
Board members access their critical information via Android, iOS or any browser-supported device in a secure environment which protects sensitive board information through our 5 Tier Security program using a state of the art dedicated SOCII infrastructure. Board executives and administrators easily streamline the creation, review, approval and dissemination of important board materials. For more information, please visit: http://boardeffect.com/
