“General”

Overall: Overall we have had a good experience with BBI. It has created efficiencies and simplified our communication with our board of directors.

Pros: Ease and simplicity of program. I can edit agenda right up to the meeting. Having relevant material in one location is tremendous.

Cons: The automatic archiving of past agenda gets confusing. I would like to see the option to archive something (agendas and locations). I continue to run into a problem (font changes) when printing something without downloading it first. Also, the email system doesn't allow you to attach documents and cannot see sent emails without coping yourself.

“Ease of Use. ”

Overall: The BoardBookit software has removed the confusion of hard copy board meetings reducing the the inconvenience of having to bring packets and delivering them in advance.

Pros: The software is intuitive and easy to use. Our board members and trustees enjoy using the software at board meetings. Our management team can easily schedule meetings for the entire year making availability easy for most executives. As an administrator loading documents and reorganizing meeting agendas is a breeze and changes are easily applied.

Cons: The software for non profits and small organizations is expensive.

“A robust, yet simple to use board platform”

Overall: I serve a 40-member board of trustees who are geographically diverse and have varying degrees of technical skills. Some are still using flip phones. I purposely selected this platform because it has the simplest user interface and is fairly easy to navigate even for the most dedicated Luddite. Prior to introducing Board BookIt, our board had no online platform and all communication was done via telephone or email. Board BookIt has streamlined a number of processes and has empowered our board to be more effective trustees.

Pros: I like the ease of use. Once one agenda has been built in the system, there is the ability to import that agenda into a future meeting to utilize as a template. This is a great time-saver. I like the ability to import previous minutes into an agenda. I like that it tallies RSVPs and attendance for me.

“Stop Printing”

Pros: When our organization switched to this software, it was in an effort to make us more efficient in distributing materials to our Board of Trustees and our Committees. We have been able to do that and realize cost savings. All of our Board members are able to use the software with little to no assistance. BoardBookit continues to enhance their product, adding new features that allow us to become more efficient in processing items that need the Boards attention between meetings.

Cons: We are not experiencing any cons at this time.

“Great tool for keeping all the board materials in one place! ”

Pros: User-friendly with the ability to easily restrict specific meetings and documents to specific groups.

Cons: I tried to send a test email to myself through the system and never received it. Also, emails to invite new users go to spam. BoardBookIt needs to work on a better system for both sending emails and for improving notification management.

“Boardbookit Review”

Overall: Overall the experience has been good. It is an easy way to provide documents to our external board members.

Pros: It is the easiest way to provide documents to our external board members.

Cons: I do not like your new enhanced drop mode. I understand we can still use the classic drop mode and it would be great if we could change our default to our preference but it defaults to enhanced. Also with the change to enhanced the Manage Documents section no longer scrolls down with the rest of the page. I hope you correct this soon!

“Connected”

Overall: BoardBookIt is a wonderful tool for our board to stay connected and on top of things. We are happy that we decided on this portal and purchased it. We find customer service helpful whenever needed. Thanks for this helpful platform to bring our non-profit closer and more productive.

Pros: I like how easy the site is both for admin and user. The price is great for our small non-profit and the features are just what we need to keep us connected.

Cons: I would like to see some chat features to help further communication.

“Way Better Than Email”

Pros: Organizing volunteers is hard enough, and is made especially difficult by the email overload that we all face in 2019. The best thing about BoardBookit is that is allows Administration to sequester communications with boards, the VIP volunteer corps, directly and confidentially into a discrete digital space. No more hunting around for "that email with that agenda that that admin sent last month," or "did we set a time or the next committee meeting/who is attending," nor disengagement on the call-in because documents can be found. BoardBookit organizes all of these functions an much more into one shared experience.

Cons: For some reason, some emails generated in BoardBookit end up in some users' spam folders, which creates a necessity for alert/reminder redundancy that is annoying/inefficient. Probably just a user setting, and again these are volunteers who are already doing a lot

“Boardbookit is awesome”

Overall: The benefits of using Boardbookit is that: 1. saving cost on lot of paper as we used to print our board papers 2. saves a lot of time 3. user friendly 4. Board Members are able to access the papers at anytime and anywhere preferable 5. uploading last minute papers isn't a problem now because before we would have to deliver papers to the board members residence around late at night 6. saving cost of tonners 7. makes the compiling and organising of Board Meetings and papers so much easier and efficient.

Pros: I like that its so easy to use. its so user friendly and makes compiling of Board Papers so easy. I used to print all our board papers and had to manual number the pages and our Board Packages always consist of 350 pages and more and Board Bookie makes my work so much easier by generating the Agenda and numbering all the pages automatically. And the fact that the Board Papers are able to be accessed at any time and anywhere is really awesome

“Product Review”

Overall: I enjoy the ease of uploading documents. The simplicity of using it makes it so covenant. I do have to spend much time teaching new user

Pros: It is very easy for my board . They haven't started using the voting part of the software yet, I hope to teach them this part next

Cons: I am not sure I have found anything that I do not like.

“Great Board portal”

Pros: Very easy to set up meetings and add/update content. Broad capabilities to store reference documents, do polls/surveys. Well liked by even our non-techie Board members. Very responsive customer support. Haven't yet used some of the other capabilities (e.g., live meeting presentation) but has everything we will need

Cons: The impact of settings isn't always clear (e.g., publishing an agenda vs publishing the meeting) so sometimes leads to a disconnect between what thought was sent to recipients vs what they got. Also many of our Board members still like printing a hard copy for travel and then join the meeting via conference call; unfortunately BoardBookit doesn't focus much on the printed book so makes it a bit more challenging (e.g., no page numbers in agenda)

“No Hassle Set-up”

Overall: It has been great for our quarterly Board Meetings. I can go in and pull data from past reports. Duplication is easy, I don't have to re-create the report set-up for the next meeting, its already there for me to edit for upcoming meetings.

Pros: I love BoardBookit because it eliminates the hassle of having to set up a meeting packet. its very easy to fill-in and download, then distribute. Its also very easy to edit and delete information.

Cons: I really don't have any. the first time I used it, I was never confused with the steps or how to maneuver through the various sections.

“Went looking for a good board portal and found it in BoardBookIt”

Overall: We are extremely satisfied with BoardBookIt, both the software itself and the support we've received, which is spot on in terms of timeliness and courtesy.

Pros: It may be an over-used term, but BoardBookIt is super user-friendly, both for administrators and users. I appreciate that the developers continue to add features to make it more robust, such a e-signature.

Cons: Board members complain that they get logged out during board meetings. Our meetings last several hours, so that may be part of it, but it is frustrating when they try to keep their screen up and it goes dark due to lack of activity.

“Working well for a 12-member board”

Pros: Keeps everything in one place, securely. I particularly like that, e.g. access to committee meeting agendas or related documents are automatically restricted to committee members. BoardBookit has good functions for managing meeting agendas, and new ones like votes, polls, and tasks have been added since we started using the product.

Cons: There are two functions I would like to see added or adjusted. One is that there is no way to post a link individually or in a group, e.g. to share relevant articles with board members, or to link to a shared Google doc or drive. Links must be added to a document and then posted. The second is that for ease of management, ability to write notes on, etc., all uploaded/posted documents including Excel files are converted to pdf format. But sometimes I want to securely share other types of files with the board, e.g. financials in a spreadsheet to be manipulated by other committee or board members.

“Excellent value for the price”

Overall: This has been an excellent way to streamline our governance operations and keep sensitive documents secure.

Pros: This software does an excellent job at providing a high amount of functionality with an intuitive interface, on both the user-facing end and on the admin-facing end. This is very important because many of our users are late adopters to technology. The designers of the software clearly had a keen understanding of their audience and what their needs are. This software meets our basic needs and at a fair price.

Cons: The software's functionality is, in many ways, "silo-ed." So, for instance, if you upload a document to one area of the board portal, you also have to upload it to every other place you'd like for it to appear. In other words, you can't effectively link to or refer to information stored on different parts of the portal.

“BoardBookIt”

Pros: This is relatively easy to use and has a lot of storage features that are beneficial. Overall, it is keeping our organization much more simplified and organized.

Cons: I don't like the document storage is exclusively PDF. We need to be able to upload word docs and excel files that can then be edited by other users. So this is super ineffective for us. Also, the calendar does not function well. I wish there was a way for it to be more like Gmail.

“Life can be easier!”

Overall: Preparing Board Book become easy! Making an Announcement to all the members are quick! Voting, sending ballot, annotation, etc. were extraordinary!

Pros: Save your time and energy! Very easy to prepare an Agenda for the board meeting, even if it changes in very last minutes. Easy to manage multiple Board Meeting too. Boardbookit is the only Portal System that give you all the benefit of Board Portal System with affordable price. It is really a blessing for us as a non-profit company. Thank you Boardbookit! Keep do it!

Cons: When preparing meeting agenda our custom is to leveling the items with Romans capital first, then Capital Alphabet then numbers for example: I. Minutes 1. 2. II. Report 1. ......... I wonder if I can customize it. thanks

“Love it”

Overall: My experience has been great. Again the ease of use if amazing and I really like all the organization features that it has to offer.

Pros: The ease of use with this software is the best thing about it. I started this position almost 2 years ago and had never used anything like this or prepared board meetings. I was very easily self taught and that software is quite intuitive. If you think that is how it should work, that is how it works.

Cons: My only con with this product is the dragging new agenda items into place. When you have really long agendas, this can be a quite cumbersome process. Not a big deal, but it would be really nice to select where you want a new item nestled under when creating that new agenda item versus it going to the bottom then having to drag it all that way back to the top or wherever it goes.

Overall: Sharing information with document uploads while setting permissions has been great.

Pros: It is very user friendly. From e-signatures, to votes, and document uploads, users are able to access these with minimal difficulty

Cons: That you cannot see a document that is out for signatures until everyone has signed. There is not a shared calendar (similar to Outlook)

“Best Online Portal!”

Overall: BoardBookit has given us the tools to distribute our board materials and documents; not only electronically but safely! The system has also allowed our managers to E sign materials before deadlines. It has truly been as great addition to our organization.

Pros: Ease of Use Security PDF Sharing capabilities

Cons: I don't really have any cons just a suggestion about the time entry on the agenda if it could update with the hour and minutes. For example if I place 10 minutes unto the time frame it would put 9:00am-9:10AM on the agenda. We manually type this out but other than that this system is great!

“I'm New But Up-to-Speed!”

Overall: BoardBookit keeps everyone connected, without a bunch of emails! Everyone knows to check their meeting for uploaded documents and doesn't have to worry about meetings they are not a part of. You can limit the number of Notifications and Reminders sent. You are able to forward load the system and only publish the upcoming months meetings; again, relieving the members of multiple notices for dates they may forget about. I am more hands on and "control" the program tighter than my predecessor.

Pros: Learning curve is minimal for tech savvy and moderately savvy individuals.

Cons: Not being able to make adjustments and continue in the same location/document. Edit the Agenda and it takes you out of the Meeting document.

Overall: We had 2 boards of directors, and with 28 people using their own different computers, we experienced many issues of them not being able to view or print the documents for the meeting. BoardBookIt has solved those access problems. It is easy to set up meetings, add online agendas and documents, and quickly be prepared for our meetings.

Pros: The ease of sharing documents that everyone can see and download and print if they wish. We had 2 boards of directors, and with 28 people using their own different computers, we experienced many issues of them not being able to view or print the documents for the meeting.

BoarBookIt has streamlined many processes for our team and we no longer spend time searching for documents and re-sending them, everyone can find whatever they are looking for with ease.

“My worklife is soooo much easier!”

Overall: The best experience -- right from the beginning -- is the support. If we can't figure it out on email, someone calls and we set up an appointment to get it right. Everyone has been friendly from the very beginning.

Pros: 1) "Cloning" meetings and agendas 2) Emailing right from the site to our Board members 3) All of our Board members took to the site at the first meeting 4) Presentations are done right from Bookit now instead of working back and forth with Powerpoint and printed materials; we just project Bookit to the screen 5) No more dealing with Adobe; which is not always user friendly with Excel documents

Cons: 1) Agenda formatting; but we have a workaround; I wish there was a way to reduce/increase font size, margins, and the ability to put spacing inbetween agenda items.

Overall: The benefits I have noticed is there is one portal that you need to deal with anything related to your board and committees.

Pros: For years we have had problems trying to keep everything related to the board and committees at the tip of our fingers. When taking on my new position with the ADC one of the first tasks I took on was trying to bring a stronger sense of governance. I looked and tried several different types of software. We choose this software because of its ease of setting up. Once you have this completed the biggest problem is getting your board and committees on program.

Cons: The features I feel the software is lacking is tracking emails sent through the site to members.

“P&T”

Pros: I haven't used BoardBookit a great deal, but per request of my physicians I have begun using to distribute my P&T agenda and wok packets. So far the set-up has been very self explanatory and received well by my committee members.

Cons: So far there hasn't been anything I have found to be a negative.

“makes doing board work easy”
Overall: to date it has been wonderful. service is exceptional and my board members love it

Pros: I love the ease of use and functionality of board book it. I can access it from anywhere including my phone. It has made communication between board committees and members a lot easier

Cons: I wish there was a place where minutes could be listed without being associated with a meeting. It causes a bit of confusion for my board members

“Makes Board Meeting Prep so much easier”

Overall: We have a number of board members who travel and BoardBookit makes it easier for them to access meeting information wherever they are without having to take a binder with them. I just wish we had more board members who were frequent users. At the moment, I still have 75% of my board still requesting hard copies of board materials and it makes double work for me.

Pros: BoardBookit is so user friendly and intuitive. So many features are automatic- I barely have to think, just click.

Cons: Nothing. I just wish I had more members using it.

“Winning collaboration and organzation tool!”

Overall: The portal is a great way to help to organize material from calendering to meeting material and provides easy access for board members. With our boards' adaptation, we have eliminated printing documents for meetings.

Pros: BoardBookit provides an intuitive tool to organization governance documents, board and committee meetings. Voting and polling with ease!

Cons: I hope as some point that reports will be expanded and that there will be a way to document and run reports on terms.

“Must Have For Your Board”

Overall: I've been using BoardBookit for a little over a year now. Couldn't believe how much more efficient it made our Board meetings and how easy it was to use as a Board member. Joined another Board and my first question when I received my email materials is "have you guys heard of BoardBookit?". I couldn't imagine being on a Board without it anymore and have even used the Admin features as a Finance Committee Chair. Anything that makes life easier for the Board is a no brainer in my book. If you're on a Board and aren't using BoardBookit I highly recommend you let whoever is running the meetings know about it. You can thank me later.

Pros: Very simple implementation and easy to use.

Cons: Didn't have any issues with the software.

“BoardBookit for Trustees”

Overall: My overall experience has been great, the ease of using the system is awesome.

Pros: I like most is the central location of everything. The opportunity to expand and use more of the features of BoardBookit would be ideal for a paperless environment, making it more efficient and clean. Grateful for the support we have received to date from our rep, she has truly answered all of our questions and took our feedback to review for our needs. Appreciate that!

Cons: Awaiting the roll out of the "Survey" option. We do a lot of email polls and also require documents to be completed and signed by the trustees. The maximum currently on the vote option is 500 characters, while this seems like ample space it isn't for our needs. Some of the questionnaires we submit for completion have over 1,000 characters with multiple choice options. We are hoping with the Survey rollout, this would replace the "Vote" and "eSign" features with what we need.

“Happy Customer”

Overall: The customer service is phenomenal! Each time I have a concern or question, they respond within minutes. We like the product so much that we just signed a contract for another three years. I also love the confidentiality the portal provides.

Pros: It is a web-driven software that offers efficient and confidential communication with our board members. Once a user is established, I don't have to coach anyone on how to use the software. We love the confidentiality the software provides to our sensitive communications. It is also easy to add or delete members and set them up in different groups. If a communication needs to go to just one particular group, I can merely select that group, and only that group will have access to the communication. Agendas and board meeting books are easy to set up for any confidential documents that need to be available prior to any meeting.

Cons: Haven't found anything I didn't like about the software. It does what it's suppose to do which is GREAT!

Cons: I've had some challenges projecting the presentation mode for some of my meetings that require a PowerPoint presentation.

“Board Book-It Review”

Overall: Now that I am familiar with the software and have been using it for 2 years, it is much less intimidating and I would recommend it, provided the user has training.

Pros: Meeting information is easily changeable and you can upload documents very easily. Once you know what you're doing it's much more user friendly.

Cons: To the new user going into the software for the first time, it is very confusing, especially if you don't use it that often.

“Great Board Portal for Non-Profits!”

Overall: This has been a great asset for our Board, as they are all busy business people in the community and we needed to be able to have everything in a more centralized location. Having it electronic, especially for voting and signatures, has helped us conduct business faster and with more communication.

Pros: I love that this is available on all devices-web browser, tablets, and an app-so that Board members can log in from anywhere at any time. As an administrator, it was simple and easy to set up my Board and had all the features I needed. My Board members could easily navigate the portal right from the beginning and had no problems with getting the notifications. I had responses right away!

Cons: It took a while to get everything going, as response time from the team was slow. But once I was set up, everything has been smooth.

“Excellent way to keep your Board informed and engaged.”

Overall: Awesome software. Easy to use (though learning curve for those not as familiar with technology). Intuitive. Gets everyone on the same page. A little challenging to get some Board members to step outside their comfort zone to fully embrace a portal like this.

Pros: Well thought out. Ease of use. Everything you need, all in one place. Remote voting for Board members.

Cons: Updates sent via email don't include the updates themselves, just a notification of what is new on your Board portal.

“Streamlined my Process & made users happy”

Pros: We have been using BoardBookit shortly after it came out. Prior to using BoardBookit, we created paper agendas w/accompanying documents which were FedExed to our Board. So much paper and time is saved. The Board likes using it, I like using it. I love that all the documents are now automatically archived and easy to find. We can fine tune the agenda until the last minute since we don't have to mail it anymore. I also like that the company is continually improving the product and customer service, which we rarely need because it is so easy to use, is always available.

Cons: In the beginning there were some hitches, better now.

“Great Product”

Overall: It's great. I love it. So much better than doing it on paper.

Pros: It's so easy to use. I reviewed other products before purchasing BoardBookit. BoardBookit is definitely the Cadillac version compared to others.

Cons: The thing I like least is when I delete an attachment or agenda item, instead of saying on the same spot on the page, it automatically goes back to the top of the page. So I have to scroll back down and find the spot on the page that I was working on. Also, I have experienced the BoardBookit portal stalling. I usually have to logout and back in before it will correct its self.

Overall: It has been great, pretty easy to use.

Pros: I did minutes for 4 different boards for almost 14 years, and wish we would have known about this product! This is so great, people can be at the meeting without physically being at the meeting. They can view the agendas, minutes, reports, etc. without the wastefulness of paper!

Cons: When inputting the agenda, you can't move an item once it has been added. Sometimes agenda item priorities change before the meeting, and it would be great to easily move them around in the edit agenda screen.

“User Friendly Board Portal that has Revolutionized our Board Process”

Pros: BoardBookit allows us to store all our governance documents and communicate with our Board and staff all in one place. Setting up meetings and creating a Board agenda is so much easier with this software. We have also really appreciated the document signing and voting functionality. I also appreciate the willingness of the BoardBookit team to entertain new product enhancements.

Cons: The calendar in Board Bookit only shows meetings currently. I wish the software had a calendar that allowed Board tasks (e.g., review of the 990, budget review, etc.) to be listed on a published calendar. While larger organizations might not need something like that, for a small organization like ours, it would be helpful for all the members to see what's coming up for the Board.

“BoardBookit Review”

Overall: So far, it's mostly good. We are all still learning the ins and outs of it, but as an administrator, I think it is good.

Pros: I like that as an administrator I have the option to sign in as just a user so I can see what they see. I also like that I can create different roles for committee members based on their function within the committee. I also like that it restricts users from creating multiple accounts by using different email addresses. They have to create their log-in information using the email address we have and then they can change it. As a large trade association with over 33,000 members, this makes it easier to keep track of usage.

Cons: I think it is a little confusing for members based on if they use a mobile device or laptop/computer to log-in. The way things look in the app are different than they way the appear on a computer. Also, I don't like that the initial email inviting members to join may sometimes go to the junk folder.

“Good, funtional option for organizations”

Overall: It is a good fit for our organization and our board members like have easy access to different documents such as monthly financials and budgets without having to email someone every month.

Pros: Easy and functional software to use for multiple meetings and users. You can pull the agendas forward and not need to recreate new agendas every month. The ability to contact users within the portal is nice - reminders are a great feature.

Cons: Privacy within users and meetings could be better. There needs to be a level between administrator and user. Need to have the ability to save documents you use in meetings every month within the system so you don't have to upload each time.

“Use BoardBookit for Brown-act compliant board meetings at charter school”

Pros: BoardBookit has allowed our school to run more organized and efficient board meetings. We are able to put items on the agenda during the month. The software organizes all out attachments and creates PDFs of the agenda that we can post online and at our site. It also complies the full board book. Board members can go online and annotate the board book as they prepare for the meetings. During the meetings, we can project all the documents for the public.

Cons: Four things that would make this software perfect: 1. Presentation mode needs some improvement. The idea is that the presenter can control other board member's screens. 2. Public facing portal. Right now we have no connection between our website and BoardBookit. It would be great if Boardbookit could automatically publish agendas on the website. 3. A full screen option for attachments when projected.

“BoardBookit definitely helps us conserve a few resources”

Overall: We save an enormous amount of time putting together our board meeting materials, our annual meeting materials and our orientation materials. Our trustees are very happy with the ability to access organizational materials on the fly. We do feel that added expenses is money well spent!

Pros: The fact that we have substantially reduced the need to print and mail materials; the ease with which staff can put together meeting agendas and materials. The portability of materials has been a plus for our trustees who are spread around the state.

Cons: The process to join and review the documents has proven to be difficult and it is too easy for user to get kicked out and then the struggle to rejoin becomes disruptive to the meeting. Really wish you could use it to poll trustees for meeting dates. Also, it would be really nice if notes that folks makes on the materials could be shared.

“Easy to Learn and Use”

Overall: We don't have paid staff to help administer board activities to managing board activities would be very burdensome to board members to handle such work. Our board is all volunteers to it's important we make it easy for them. And Board Bookit helps us to achieve that goal.

Pros: Non-profit boards often have members who are reluctant to let go of the old ways - namely paper. The greatest thing about BoardBookit is that it's so, so easy to learn and use. Our less digitally-savvy board members picked it up so quickly and, initially reluctant, now love it. The 24/7 customer care is also great.

Cons: I'm struggling to think of anything. Every new release brings new useful features, so if pressed to come up with some negatives, I suppose bringing out new features faster.

“Board Life Made Simple”

Overall: Prior to this software, people could say, I did not get that or see that. This software not only ensures it is accessible, but I can also tell if you opened it too. No more excuses.

Pros: Running a company requires a lot of legal documents, resolutions, board notes, etc. This software allows you to keep this information in one centralized place. Importantly, you can see the interaction of the individuals with the product to determine who is engaging and who is not. This allows for measurable correct action.

Cons: There is little in this software not to like, and I cannot offer a con that would make someone not buy the product. We are in economic development and have a large board. I make a video prior to each board meeting that is an executive summary of the upcoming board meeting. I like these videos to outside services to play the video. However, I would like the video to play in an embedded fashion on the site.

Pros: I am most impressed by the availability of apps for multiple platforms. Each of them offer the same ease of use and continuity.

“Save Time, Save Paper - Go BoardBookit”

Overall: Overall my experience has been greatly enhanced and allowed me to assist members and others in accessing the site. I have received calls from other organizations who have showed interest in using the site after hearing about us using it.

Pros: Gives us Secretariat the ability to digitally manage and document meeting papers without having to go through the manual process of printing, binding and distribution. it allows papers to be accessed from anywhere and saves us not only time and money but as well as the environment from printing large meeting folders.

Cons: There is nothing that I would say I dislike about the site. I'm still learning my way through it as well. Perhaps just a recommendation - if a field can be created where we can assign the department who is submitting for reporting purposes. This allows us to extract all papers submitted by a department or by function in a year. Pardon my ignorance if this is already available

“World Business Chicago and Boardbookit”

Overall: The business value that BoardBookit solves for World Business Chicago is the efficiency and ease to upload agendas and accompanying documents for board members to review before each meeting once the meeting has been published. The time that it takes to prepare materials for 90 members has tremendously reduced the stress of organizing board meetings.

Pros: As the Executive Director at World Business Chicago, we are in our second year of using BoardBookit. After researching a variety of board portals that could provide security, functionality, optimal user experience, and cost, Boardbookit came out ahead for our public/private, 501c3 status. We are immensely pleased with our decision!

Cons: There was nothing that I did not like, however, as we became more acquainted with the software, we wee able to assess features that did not come with the software, such as uploading attachments to email notifications sent to board members.

Pros: The ease of use of this software over the prior board book software used by our company has made my life easier when it comes to the monthly compilation of our Board books. Also the pricing is much more in line with the level of our needs and usage.

Cons: We didn't like the way the book's agenda would always bounce back to the top as you add items requiring you to constantly scroll back down to where you left off.

Pros: It has become a great archive of information for our Board and Staff. The product is easy to use, both from the administrator and client standpoints. BoardBookit presents information in an easy to access manner. Board Members who attend meetings by phone now have an easy way to see the same information being discussed in the meeting location.

Cons: As a public agency, all of our information is subject to North Carolina Public Information Law. BoardBookIt does not offer a feature where members of the general public can easily access the information we present in board and committee meetings. We been forced to duplicate our work in BoardBookIt to place the same information on our corporate website.

Pros: BoardBookIt is a user friendly platform that allows our Board easy access to the information they need, when they need it. Features are simplified on both user and admin side. The ability to make real time adjustments has been a huge asset.

Cons: This software does not provide the ability to have a common calendar outside of specific meeting invitations. Our Board likes the ability to know other things that are going on within the organization, outside of the specific meetings we set.

I like the fact that you can import previous agendas rather than starting each meeting from scratch. You can add documents when they become available as opposed to waiting until all documents are received to upload. If items need to be moved on the agenda, it's as easy as dragging and dropping where needed. BoardBookit is VERY user friendly. The customer support line is very helpful.

Cons: I haven't found anything that I do not like about this software.

“A life saver”

Overall: Our experience has been positive overall. BoardBookit support has been very good. Although it takes a little time to get used to the system, you can become functional on it without a huge effort.

Pros: It's been relatively easy to implement. We have never used a tool like this and our board consists of varying ages and abilities. Nearly everyone is up and running with it, and it already saves time and aggravation in accessing and sharing information, conducting votes, etc.

Cons: Doesn't allow a multi-day meeting. Our board meetings run from Friday evening through noon Sunday and we have to set up three separate meetings to accommodate this.

“A Great Investment!”

Overall: We've had an overall great experience with BoardBookit. Crystal, our customer service specialist, took the time to train us and customize our portal to fit the individual needs of our organization. Since then, the team at BoardBookit has been extremely responsive to all of our concerns. This is a well-developed program with a great customer service team to back it up!

Pros: The dashboard is incredibly user-friendly and everything is organized in a sensible way that creates better ease-of-use for both administrators and users.

Cons: So far I am happy with everything this program has to offer.

“BoardBookit has made our board so much more efficient and support is phenomenal!”

Overall: BoardBookit saved us time and made the jobs of the admins who manage the board easier. It also helped us to get more benefit from our board members because they were happier and well-prepared. Also, for a while, we really wanted phone apps to accompany the iPad and Android apps. But those have been released now.

Pros: After four years of using BoardBookit, I could list a ton of pros. First, we were able to make the switch quickly and with little issue. Learning to use the portal for both our admins and board members was simple and the BoardBookit team walked us through any questions or concerns we had about moving our current process into the portal. BoardBookit has allowed us to manage our meeting materials with such ease and it has cut down significantly on the time we used to spend on meeting prep.
