STREAMLINE YOUR BOARD AND COMMITTEE MEETINGS

Preparing and reviewing material for board reports can be extremely time consuming and intensive – for admin teams, senior leaders and board members.
 
Now it’s made a whole lot easier.
 

Modernise your board meetings

Board Connect is a Microsoft Teams app that brings the documentation and meeting details related to board meetings into one central location, where it’s easier to collaborate.

In most businesses, preparing, reviewing and collaborating on board-related documentation is extremely time-consuming and ineffective. It’s also done mostly via email or ad-hoc conversations. As well as wasting time, this process exposes businesses to unnecessary security risks.

Built on Microsoft Teams, Board Connect works seamlessly with the Office 365 suite, which makes it very simple for users to come up to speed – regardless of their level of technical expertise. Natively leverages your existing Microsoft Teams investment to help your people work more efficiently and effectively.

Client testimonials

The modern board is under enormous pressure, and producing board reports requires extensive collaboration and teamwork. A customised business application like Board Connect, built on Microsoft Teams, can deliver enormous value by streamlining this workload.
Rachel Bondi
Commercial Partner Director, Microsoft Australia
Currently, most of our board-related collaboration is done over email or phone, which can be very time consuming. Reviewing documentation prior to a board meeting is very time-intensive, and finer details are often discussed in the meeting itself—rather than beforehand. To be able to have a central repository of all the board papers would be incredible.
