Large companies have been going paperless for years now, and there are countless reasons why it’s a major trend. Even though the benefits are plentiful, many boards of directors haven’t followed suit. They have remained firmly tied to old ways of printed board packets either out of habit, fear of change, or both.
At Directorpoint, we’re big believers in the paperless boardroom for many reasons—some of which are similar to why companies are headed that direction in general. In addition to the fact, that it’s just plain good for our environment, we’ve compiled a list of reasons why creating a paperless boardroom can bring your board better results overall.
- Going paperless saves time.
Board members are some of the busiest people in the business world. Typically, their time is limited and therefore, highly valuable. Using a system like Directorpoint that eliminates the need for paper saves time prepping for meetings as well as time used during meetings. Board software “keeps everyone on the same page” without actually involving any pages!
