Is your board trying to decide between Aprio and MyBoardPacket for managing your board communication? Here we help you compare key differences in features, service and pricing for the two board portals.
At their core, Aprio and MyBoardPacket board portals do similar things – provide easy-to-use board meeting software that offers secure document management, board collaboration tools and helps board administrators efficiently distribute digital board packages. But there are some standout differences to consider when deciding which board management 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. MyBoardPacket customers indicate it is also easy to use.
Aprio provides the most robust encryption for complete security, with third-party certifications, two-factor authentication and single sign on to keep board and company information secure. MyBoardPacket offers good security features for its users but is not as robust as Aprio.
From day one, Aprio helps every customer set up their board meeting software. You’ll work directly with experienced board portal administrators to help make setup a breeze. MyBoardPacket also supports customer setup.
|Yes – with experts
|Expert support & training
While both platforms offer 24/7 help, you won’t find AI chatbots or hard-to-reach call centers with Aprio. Unlike other board portal solutions on the market, Aprio offers responsive, expert help from former board administrators who know firsthand the stresses and urgency of board meeting management and communication.
Aprio provides an agenda builder to speed up board package creation including easy-to-use templates. MyBoardPacket does not have an agenda-builder feature.
Aprio helps you record and distribute meeting minutes faster with our Minute builder. It starts with your agenda and you can add new sections as needed. Track motions and action items and assign a co-author. Export your minutes as a PDF and add them as a quick link to the next meeting agenda. MyBoardPacket has handy tools but not a minute builder.
|Mobile applications for any device
Aprio offers board members the ability to work from any device including desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone – whether using Android, Apple or Microsoft. MyBoardPacket offers a mobile app for iPad only.
|Complete reporting & archiving
Aprio provides nine standard reports to track board activity including attendance, login behaviour, groups, and audit reporting. Aprio provides an automated audit trail of key compliance actions and dates to make regulatory reporting easy.
Aprio and MyBoardPacket offer similar board communication features like:
However, Aprio’s board portal software offers more comprehensive features than MyBoardPacket. This includes features like Minute Builder, Task Manager, e-signatures, surveys, version control for documents, and a complete audit trail – to name a few. On the reporting side, Aprio tracks detailed data. For example, see who logged in when, from where and any actions taken including views, downloads, annotations, comments, signatures, or votes.
Buyer beware: not all board portals offer the same caliber of responsive service.
Because a board portal 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.
MyBoardPacket offers customer support via 24/7 live support and online. Aprio offers unmatched expert service from former board administrators who know firsthand the stresses and urgencies of board meeting management and communication.
With Aprio you won’t deal with hard-to-reach call centers. When you call us, you’ll talk with a former board administrator—24/7, 365 days a year. We’re proud of our track record of excellence in customer support and training, achieving a 95% customer loyalty rate.
When comparing the cost of board portal software, it’s important to get customized quotes to truly compare. Better technology and service can come at a bit higher price, so be sure to consider your goals and all the features you need, not just grab the best deal.
The cost of MyBoardPacket consists of a monthly fee for an unlimited number of users. It does not require an annual contract and support and training are included.
Aprio believes that good governance should be simple. We offer a premium product in a “you get what you pay for” market, that is as intuitive as it is robust. We offer the ability to hide features and scale your software at a pace that works for your board.
Aprio’s subscription includes 12 user licenses – any number of which can be administrators — and unlimited committees at no extra cost. Our pricing includes initial one-on-one training for administrators and directors, and any ongoing training you may need to set your board up for success.
Our pricing model ensures you won’t pay for more users than you need. And we offer all of the premium tools and features you need to better manage your board: a library of current and past board materials, minutes builder, agenda builder, calendars, annotations, audit reports, decision tracking, desktop and remote access, attendance reports, and much more – with access to both desktop and mobile applications. If you wish to simplify your portal, you can hide the extra features you won’t use right now. Unhide them and set up training so that you can scale at no extra cost when it works for you.
Aprio stands out in the industry for providing unmatched expert service and an easy-to-use, secure board portal that works the way a board works. In addition to a seamless onboarding experience, the Aprio board meeting platform provides unlimited on-demand training and ongoing expert customer support you can rely on at any time.
