Advantages

Let’s take a look at BoardSpace advantages and find out why this provider is good enough. First of all, access and permissions control made it really simple and let the administrators see the whole picture of access to important documents. This is one of the most important features for board portals because of increasing cybersecurity risks. 

The second important feature is document management. Users could create tags for specific document types. It allows finding needed files faster, which is important during the meeting. One possible issue – it’s better to create a company-wide system of document tags before start using tags within boardspace. Yet tags editing is fast and simple, it could be challenging with numerous documents.

Collaboration within board management software is another one useful feature. Clients can easily collaborate with each other not only during the meeting but before and after the meeting. Users can add their comments to the agenda, comment documents. After the meeting, if action items are created, there will be follow-ups with the deadline. Users will actually spend less time on assigned tasks and managers will not have to ask to update a task’s status.
