What is a Board Portal?


A board portal is a web-based platform that secures all documents and other information about governance in your company. It lets members access documents from any device and keep track of document activity. This helps to improve accountability and transparency.

A good board portal will serve as a central repository for all meeting-related documents like audits, committee reports and financials, as well as agendas and meeting minutes. It should also feature an encrypted file-sharing feature that allows users to upload files and share them with other users. In addition, it should have an easy-to-use feature for eSignatures that allows signatures on mobile devices or in person, as well as an integrated tool to verify the authenticity of digital signatures.

Whether you’re a private company, non-profit or government agency, board portals offer comprehensive features that make it easier for directors and administrators to manage committees, calendars, surveys, voting, eSignatures/approvals, and more. The most effective solution is a flexible and robust framework that can work with your governance processes and allows you to sync meeting dates, vote times, and surveys to the board members calendars.

It is crucial that all people involved in the selection of board management software early on, so they can be trained and help with adoption. A good portal for board members will ultimately help save time, improve collaboration and promote transparency and accountability.
