As corporate needs and recent cybersecurity issues evolve, new industries and technologies are rising to address those needs. Board portals, board meeting software, board management software: they all refer to a similar group of services. So, what is a board portal?
A board portal is software used by boards of directors, advisory boards, and other leadership teams to securely collaborate and share information.
Board portal features
Board portals are useful for companies and groups in all industries, including financial, government, healthcare, and non-profit organizations. Fundamentally, board portals help your organization’s leaders to communicate securely, access information easily, and make better decisions sooner.
Board portals often provide tools for:
- Managing committees
- Updating calendars
- Securely storing files
- Calling votes
- Sending surveys
- Requesting signatures
- Managing information permissions
Board portal use has grown rapidly in recent years due to the broad acceptance of mobile devices and cloud-based software.

Board portal ease of use
The ideal portal combines effective features with simplicity, so that board members at all levels of tech savvy can interact with the software and accomplish important tasks.
That simplicity should be expected across devices, as board members may use a variety of tech tools (computers, tablets, smartphones) to access their important information.
