The most important factors when choosing board portal software.

We analyzed Capterra reviews of board management software by directors and administrators and identified the top things to look for when first selecting software or making a switch. Here are key factors to compare and facts on how Aprio stands out.

“More productive meetings and better attendance.”

“The biggest win with Aprio is how much we’ve improved pre-meeting engagement. We’ve also won back time and gained flexibility with our meeting prep. Our last packet took less than one hour to prepare.”
