Board meetings should be informed, effective and uncomplicated. But the reality is planning and running productive board meetings take a lot of time and effort.
Tasks like chasing convenient board meeting dates or distributing board materials have become a time-sink and administrative burden, especially as more of us work remotely. That’s why more boards of directors are considering online board meeting tools to enhance their productivity and the efficiency of board communication.
Read on to see what’s included in Aprio’s board meeting tools and how they compare to other board portals.
Aprio’s online board meeting software helps organizations of any size run a more productive and efficient board. We offer standard board management tools including a library of current and past board information, minutes builder, agenda builder, calendars, annotations, audit reports, decision tracking, attendance reports, and much more – accessible on any device and in real time. Our board meeting app is available on Apple, Android and Windows devices.
Here are some of our most-used board management tools:
A good agenda can make or break a board meeting. With Aprio’s Agenda Builder, you can create the meeting agenda you need in minutes and then share it in one click with all board members.
Automatically build an agenda based on your meeting materials by importing folders and documents, or reuse an existing template. Plus add new topics and sub-topics in just a few clicks. Need to keep your meeting on track? Assign a time limit to agenda items.
While recording and distributing meeting minutes may not be your favorite task, our Minutes Builder helps you get this job done faster than ever.
As soon as you’ve built your agenda, you’re halfway there to the meeting minutes! Use your agenda to get started on recording your minutes and add new sections as needed. Track motions and action items and assign an approver or a coauthor – all in Aprio. Plus, export your minutes as a PDF for easy distribution and add them as a quick link for the next meeting agenda.
The work before and after a board meeting is often as important as the meeting itself. Aprio’s Task Manager feature helps board members and admins stay on top of action items. Board members can see their task list, can set priorities and track completion in the Aprio dashboard. Trigger notifications are automatically sent to board members when they are assigned a new task.
With remote board meetings the new norm, Aprio ensures it’s easy for board directors to join a virtual meeting without fumbling to find the meeting details or switch to a specific videoconferencing solution. Get one-click access to remote meetings right from the dashboard. Plus, use presenter mode to ensure all attendees are following the same agenda.
Streamline board governance by gathering board signatures and conducting board votes as easily outside of board meetings as meeting live. Sign off on contracts, non-disclosure agreements and resolutions with Aprio’s eSignatures. Use surveys and voting to get the board of directors’ input without the inconvenience or delay of follow-up emails and phone calls.
