If you were to tally the total number of hours your company's managers and staff spend preparing for board meetings, how much do you think it would be? Multiply that by the amount your organization pays its managers and staff per hour, and you may well be looking at a figure in the tens of thousands of dollars. Now think about how much time your board members spend trying to make sure that they have the right version of the board materials, trying to find the dial in information, etc. And then think about how valuable their time is.
Spending time preparing for board meetings is unavoidable, but most companies and non-profits don't do it as efficiently as they could. Are your meeting minutes easily at hand? Are you reinventing the wheel each time you put an agenda together? Are the key corporate documents in a neatly organized and easily accessible archive? Can your board members access all the information they need about upcoming board meetings from their calendar on their desktop or mobile device.
If the answers to these questions are "no" or "not exactly", then you have an opportunity to save your organization's managers, staff and board members a tremendous amount of time and effort by using the right tools. iBoardrooms makes preparing, running and following up on board meetings easy and efficient by automating the things you "have to do" so that you and your board can spend your time on the things that really matter.
