What do you like best?

BoardSpot allows our organization to minimize the time and effort it takes to be responsive and accountable to our board. This program is an excellent collaborative tool; I can find contact info, create agendas, send reminders, see RSVPs, run our meetings, and post pertinent information for our board all in one place. It is not only a time-saver, but an efficient way to organize our governance items. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Any issues or questions I have had have been promptly answered or fixed by the developers. There is nothing about this program that I dislike. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are seeking a way to better manage your board and board meetings, this is a great solution. I have been extremely impressed with the company and the product. I would highly suggest giving it a try. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have a fairly large board with multiple committees and this program has made board orientation, meetings, and governance much simpler. Previously, we posted agendas and other pertinent items through our website for board members and transferring to BoardSpot has dramatically increased the number of trustees who access these items prior to meetings. It is intuitive and easy to use, which is great for a diverse board like ours. I especially appreciate that everything is in one place; I don't have to search through our database, cloud service, emails, and website to find the info I need.

What do you like best?

We looked at numerous products for our Board portal, and BoardSpot was the top choice in our evaluations. It offers a full menu of features and is the perfect tool to enhance and support the work of our Board. It was easy to populate and to set up meeting information, member directory, documents, committee groups, etc. It's very easy to update and maintain as well. One of several outstanding advantages of BoardSpot is the ease-of-use for our Board members. They love it! Many have commented about how easy it is to navigate the program and how user-friendly it is.

Another significant advantage is the value/cost---very affordable, and no hidden or escalating fees. Because BoardSpot is so intuitive and works so well, we haven't had to contact customer service very much, but on the few occasions when we have had questions, their team response was outstanding with very prompt personal attention and quick solutions.

We feel fortunate to have selected BoardSpot, and are very pleased with the product, the array of features, the user-friendly structure, the company, the support, and the excellent value. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

We have had almost no issues with BoardSpot. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Prior to BoardSpot, we compiled and mailed Board meeting books. In addition to the extensive labor involved, we also were unhappy with the environmental impact of producing hundreds of copies of documents, buying binders, and the associated mailing costs incurred for the meetings throughout the year. By using BoardSpot, we were able to save thousands of dollars and many valuable resources. Now, we just load our meeting information in to BoardSpot, and our trustees log in at the meetings to access the materials. It was a quick, efficient and effective way to transition from the cumbersome printed materials! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

BoardSpot helps me to stay on track with board and committee activities. I use the Dashboard often to keep abreast on my next meeting and future meetings as well. I frequently access the "People" section for contact and committee info. The "Meetings" section's ability to hold all information pertaining to particular meetings including the minutes helps to ensure that all minutes are accounted for and accessible to board members. It allows all trustees to view meeting agendas in advance. I especially like the email feature within a meeting to notify members of changes and uploads of new info for a meeting. The "Document" section keeps all of our important board documents organized and ensures you are up to date with a simple glance. It is well organized and very user friendly! It makes my job much easier! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only downside of BoardSpot is simply trying to get 100% participation from board members for attendance tracking. It would be so helpful if they indicated their intentions of attending a particular meeting or not right in BoardSpot. Often they don't, so we are unsure who will be showing up that day. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

During these times of COVID-19, we are having to be creative considering new remote meeting and time constraints. Since we can't meet in person for committee and board meetings, BoardSpot's ability to share agendas and materials in advance with members is so helpful. The meetings themselves take up much less time for discussion and voting. This has gone a long way during these more restrictive times of connecting with each other remotely.

What do you like best?

BoardSpot has been an incredible asset for the small organizations that I serve on the board of directors of. The simplicity, ease of access and use make it a perfect fit for nonprofit teams. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

As of now, there is nothing I dislike. I have communicated with BoardSpot to request the inclusion of discussion feeds or a connection to Slack. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The biggest problem that BoardSpot has solved for us in the storage of documents for board members to easily access. We have used Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, and other web-based platforms to great frustration. The user interface of BoardSpot has made managing accessibility of documents so much easier.
