SiteSprout BoardSite, provisioned in Microsoft SharePoint, provides a safe, secure repository for all Board of Director materials, ensures timely distribution of important information, and encourages quick response and participation by Board Members.
SiteSprout BoardSite features a main Board of Directors site as well as Committee sites to be used to collaborate on issues and topics germane to the organization. The built-in polling application encourages Board Members to voice their opinion on a discussion, vote on a referendum, or even RSVP for a meeting. When installed in an Office 365 environment, users can take advantage of additional functionality such as Skype for Business, an online, teleconferencing application for added collaboration.
"We find that managing board materials can be a full-time job and most companies use e-mail as the distribution mechanism, which can allow room for dissemination of information to unintended audiences”, said Joyce Query, CEO of i-Squared. "SiteSprout BoardSite alleviates this problem by providing specialty work areas designed to support Board needs. Using Microsoft SharePoint as the base provides many collaboration and file management capabilities. Using SiteSprout BoardSite in the Microsoft Cloud allows Microsoft to do all the heavy lifting—keeping software updated, servers patched, and critical business data backed up.”
