STREAMLINE YOUR BOARD AND COMMITTEE MEETINGS

Preparing and reviewing material for board meetings can be extremely time consuming and intensive – for the board secretary, senior leaders and board members themselves.
 
Now it’s made a whole lot easier with Board Connect for Microsoft Teams

Modernise your board meetings

Board Connect is a Microsoft Teams application that brings 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 information 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.

That’s where the #1 Board Management software Board Connect comes in – with an easy to use user interface which helps Senior staff work and collaborate more effectively with other board and committee members. 

Built on Microsoft Teams, Board Connect works seamlessly with the Microsoft 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.

Board Connect is a software your IT team will love for two key reasons: 

1. Delegated Permissions; In simpler terms, delegated permission is the permission granted to the user signed-into Board Connect

2. No third-party data storage required: Your boards information is safe with Board Connect. We leverage the power of your Microsoft 365 eco-system to ensure no personally identifiable or company identifiable information is stored. Learn more

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.
