I would say it has cut 10-15 hours off my time to prep for a board meeting. We were still doing paper binders (!).
It allows the board members to be more self-sufficient with accessing information.
Switching to a digital solution has provided the opportunity to revamp and refresh some processes.
It allows a certain level of quality and consistency as I want things to appear uniform.
It provides accountability (users know we see when/if/how much users are on the portal)
REDUCES EMAIL - Once in the portal they can perform most of our tasks - accessing information, surveys for feedback on a meeting, electronic signatures and motions all done in the same place etc
ENSURING UNIFORM ACCESS TO KEY INFORMATION - if everything is done through email you are limited by the user's ability to store their email and organize in a way to easily access the important information. With portal, users only need to login to access all the data they need.
