The Benefits of a Software Board

Board is an intelligent system for planning that combines numerous features into a single, user-friendly environment. The system is available on-premise as well as in the cloud via a hybrid model and allows for full scalability, as well as support for reading and writing for all data models. This lets users create and deploy robust applications on a single platform with low operating costs.

A board, unlike the roadmap, which outlines the strategic goals of your team over weeks, quarters, and months, shows work that is being done by your team right now. The work is displayed as cards on the board that can be moved around the columns corresponding to their status, e.g. from being completed to being done. The cards are usually sorted by priority, with the most important ones at the highest.

With the intelligent data federation that Board offers, you can connect any planning software to Board and include Excel sheets. This lets you create a single view of data for multidimensional analysis and questions that are ad hoc. You can also alter the dimensions on-the fly and instantly reconsolidate data. Board’s flexibility is a notch ahead of other solutions.

A modern board portal enables collaboration between team members regardless of where they’re located and from which device they access the application. Agenda items can be easily dragged into draft minutes for pre-meeting preparation. During the meeting votes and approvals can be conducted safely through the portal with a click. Agenda items can also be converted into actionable tasks that can be distributed to participants to let them continue working between meetings.
