Board of Directors Portal: Scalability That Grows With You
Written by: Ida Morris
When creating a successful application in a world where technology rapidly evolves, scalability is essential for board and committee members. Scalability is also a hallmark of the Govenda’s innovative board of directors portal used by companies worldwide to enhance board engagement and streamline board governance.
When Govenda built their board portal, scalability was at the foundation of its code with building blocks consisting of unlimited users, cloud-based storage, and full-featured applications for every device.
The Govenda scalable application doesn’t limit boards of directors by charging to add users, groups, and committees because the board portal can grow with the organizations it serves.
Our customers are permitted to seamlessly grow their board governance base and document storage in the cloud’s safe, secure environment. Concepta states the second principle of scalable software is maximum stored data because “this kind of content could rise dramatically and unexpectedly.” The Govenda common document library allows for multiple file type uploads, promoting the organization and the ease of a paperless boardroom.
The Push for Paperless
Scalability also encompasses the push to move to paperless board meeting software across both businesses and boards of directors, which is essential to increasing productivity, collaboration, and accessibility. IBM Systems Magazine says, “paperless app solutions can extend beyond the initial application to other departments, which each have unique indexing and functional requirements.”
By incorporating scalable board of directors portal software to ease the paperless transition, the right document or data source is available to view or share in seconds with board administration, members, executives, investors, and the general counsel. Beyond corporate governance access, many companies use Govenda to other areas of their organizations to achieve an even greater and faster ROI.
Business.com reports, “this ease of access greatly improves efficiency in a variety of contexts, such as approval workflows. And mobile, tablet or offline access translates into speed and agility.” Board of directors portal applications are full-featured for every device, including mobile, tablet, and a web browser, to ensure information is available anytime and anywhere.
Scalable capabilities such as viewing board documents offline and e-signatures are also important. Paperless software solutions “provide authorized access for remote users over the web or from a mobile device…e-signature solutions are also rapidly replacing wet signatures on documents for point of entry capture.” Govenda’s board of directors portal offers both offline viewing and annotating of board documents and e-signatures. Security is also a consideration for going paperless with board portal software. Govenda stores its documents in a secure cloud with redundant managed firewalls, SSAE-18 certification, and two-factor authentication.
The Future of Scalable Applications
New app installs are projected to reach 44.5 billion in 2024 on the App Store and 139.2 billion on Google Play, reflecting growth of 45 and 65 percent over 2019’s totals, respectively. The importance of scalable apps will take precedence in development for the future. In the coming years, scalability will expand to AI (Artificial Intelligence) technology.
The Govenda board of directors’ portal team of usability experts and engineers is committed to growing our board portal to suit boards’ needs for the future continuously. Quora says, “scalability is the litmus test on whether a system will stand the test of time.” When choosing a board management software solution, scalability is key to investment. Concepta adds that with scalably built software, “businesses can continue using the same software for longer because it was designed to grow along with them.”
