Govenda Adds Advanced Calendaring Capabilities to Maximize Scheduling Efficiency

Govenda Adds Advanced Calendaring Capabilities That Improve Scheduling Efficiency For Organizations Using Govenda’s Secure Board of Directors Portal and iPad App

PITTSBURGH, PA – April 17, 2014  Govenda, a secure board portal solution that helps companies streamline the process of creating and distributing material for board members, today introduced advanced calendaring capabilities to the core Govenda board portal and web application. The new calendaring features create an easier, interactive process for scheduling meetings with board members, saving time for administrators and board members. The calendar tools are available today. All current Govenda customers will have immediate access to the new calendar tools, which also integrate with Microsoft Outlook and Google Calendar.

“Boards are adopting Govenda to streamline and improve communication and coordination among increasingly far-flung boards,” said Marion Lewis, CEO of Govenda. “Scheduling board and committee meetings is cumbersome, time-consuming and inefficient since the people scheduling the meetings typically don’t have visibility into every board member’s calendar. Manual scheduling using email places a heavy burden on a single person to coordinate with board members. Govenda’s calendaring feature creates a collaborative scheduling process that saves time and makes it easier to schedule and to reschedule meetings. This is an important enhancement that will make coordination and scheduling better for administrators and board members alike.”

The new calendaring module integrates with Govenda’s polling, scheduling, notification, and meeting management tools. Using the calendar tool, administrators can propose multiple times and poll board members before scheduling a meeting. Once meetings are scheduled, an automated notification and RSVP process ensures board members are informed, and board members can download meetings to their Outlook or Google calendars. Board members can access the calendar on the Web through the Govenda secure web app. The same functionality will be available on the Govenda iPad app by the end of April.
