Non-profit boards require transparent governance processes to ensure they are fulfilling their missions, serving their communities, and creating positive change.
Is your non-profit board considering a board portal to make board management and communication with valued board members more efficient and transparent? See how the Aprio and Boardable board management software compare in features, service, pricing and more.
At their core, Aprio and Boardable board portals do similar things – provide an easy-to-use board management software that offers secure document sharing, board communication tools and helps non-profit boards efficiently distribute board packages. But, there are standout differences to consider when deciding which board portal software to buy.
Customer reviews of Aprio’s board portal indicate how easy it is for board members to log in and get started from day one. With Aprio’s intuitive navigation, board members can easily find files, links, and everything else they need.
Some Boardable customer reviews indicate it is easy to use whereas others note it can be difficult to use for non-tech savvy users.
Aprio provides the most robust encryption for complete security, with third-party certifications, multi-factor authentication, and remote data wiping to keep board and company information secure.
While Boardable maintains third-party certifications for security and offers some features such as single sign-on, it lacks advanced features such as granular access permission, remote locking and swiping.
|Expert board portal setup for all
From day one, Aprio helps every customer set up their board meeting software. You’ll work directly with experienced board portal administrators to set up your board library, set up users, and run your first meeting on Aprio.
Boardable offers onboarding and success management for professional and enterprise customers only.
|Expert support & training for all
With Aprio, every customer receives responsive, expert help from former board administrators who know firsthand the stresses and urgencies of board meeting management and communication. Even less-tech savvy board members get patient help – 24/7, 365 days a year. You won’t find hard-to-reach call centers or rely exclusively on an online resource section for help.
Boardable offers 24/7 technical support to professional and enterprise customers only.
|Mobile apps for any device
Aprio offers mobile apps for Apple, Android and Microsoft devices so board directors can work on the go and from any device: desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone.
Boardable offers a mobile app for Apple and Android devices only. Some customer reviews of its mobile app indicate limited functionality and login issues.
|Easy onboarding for new directors
While both Aprio and Boardable offer document storage, Aprio offers an intuitively organized and easy-to-search library of board materials so new directors get up to speed quickly. Training for new directors is available at any time at no additional cost, no matter when they join.
Customer reviews of Boardable indicate giving access to previous documents and discussions to new directors can be difficult.
|Complete reporting & archiving
Aprio provides nine standard reports to track board activity including attendance, board engagement login records and audit reporting.
Boardable provides limited board reporting such as board engagement activity. Customer reviews of Boardable indicate running reports for board activities is not as easy as it should be.
Beware that with Boardable, depending on your plan you’ll get different features. Be sure to carefully check which features are included. For example, annotations, unlimited committees and eSignatures are only included in Boardable’s professional or enterprise plans.
With Aprio and Boardable, all paying customers get these core features:
With Aprio, no one is stuck with the “lite” edition with a limited set of features. We give you access to all of our premium board portal features including eSignatures, annotations and complete board reporting, with affordable per-user pricing. Plus, never worry about the number of committees or groups you have – it’s always unlimited and at no extra cost.
As board portal software is used by some of the most influential and time-starved people in your organization, it is paramount that product support is highly professional and useful. But not all board portals offer the same caliber of responsive service or personalized training.
Boardable offers various levels of customer support and training depending on your plan. For example, Boardable Academy is offered to every user to browse through quick-start guides, video tutorials and webinars. But to work with a designated customer success manager, access 24/7 technical support or get personalized training, you’ll need a professional or enterprise plan.
