How Boardable Can Improve Your Onboarding

Need updated technology to streamline your orientation process even further? We’ve got you covered!

Help set new board members up for successful terms with Boardable! Our board management platform was designed to help today’s leaders modernize their board processes. A big part of that starts with effective orientation and making sure everyone has access to the resources they need to thrive in their new roles.

Backed by our user-friendly tools, you’ll be able to enhance board service from the start. Gain access to helpful, innovative tools like:

  1. The Document Center. Onboarding — and board service in general — come with heaps of paperwork. Make it easy to store your board book and share resources throughout their terms with the Document Center. Paper board books are a thing of the past. No need for them to keep up with reams of paper anymore!
  2. A Task Manager. Your board members are responsible for a lot. If they miss one task, everything can get thrown off! This new level of responsibility can be overwhelming for new members. Make sure they always know what’s expected of them with the Task Manager. Administrators can assign tasks and due dates, then follow up if necessary. Each user can see their assignments directly on their dashboard.
  3. E-Signatures. Between your conflict of interest policy, code of conduct, and other board member agreement forms, new members need to sign a considerable amount of paperwork. Simplify the process with our e-signature technology. Upload a document, request a signature, and check on its status all in one place. No need to make people physically sign or keep up with forms when Boardable can centralize everything for you.
