A high-performing board of directors is no accident. The recipe for success is secure communication between board members. With the user-friendly board portal, the board members can securely and efficiently access, view, and share confidential documents while ensuring the highest security and compliance.
Why board management software?
The rise of IT technologies in a globalized economy has led to a new quality of informatization. An open-ended “information workspace” is being created based on the Internet. The information space forms a new basis for work and innovation processes and is of central importance for the future company. In knowledge work, in particular, new possibilities for communication and know-how networking are becoming the starting point for new forms of work and flexible organizational concepts. On the one hand, IT-supported processes ensure the “flow” of information in highly qualified work areas, restructure interfaces and become the backbone of systemically integrated organizations.
On the other hand, virtual collaboration platforms create the basis for new “publics” in which employees network as a community and share their knowledge. All this can be correlated with the activity of the collegial bodies of the company. For example, modern boards of directors use innovative digital solutions like board portals to ensure a secure collaborative environment and data repository. In this case, the board of directors portal serves as the main tool for improving the productivity of the collegial bodies.
Besides, many people would be surprised to find that buying a board portal can save them money even in the first year. Based on research data from medium-sized companies, 12 meetings are held at the management and supervisory board level each year. Here you could save over €16,000 in net costs per year.
