Paperless Board Meetings

Meet Better Electronically!

Eliminating Paper

Eliminating the wasted paper generated by board and committee meetings with electronic meeting packs is by no means a new invention. Systems for producing PDF based board packs have been in use for many years.

What has been lacking is not the board page generation process, it is the systems around the electronic document itself that are missing.

The advent of board portal software addresses this issue, by connecting some vital real-world process together. These include:

  • Agenda Compilation
  • Board Packet Distribution
  • Monitoring
  • Security
  • Accountability and Governance
