Reimagining Board Governance

Upgrades and enhancements for stress-free meeting management

At Govenda, everything we do revolves around simplifying board meetings for our clients. Our board portal software is powerful and easy to use, with features that take the stress out of planning and managing board meetings.

Our goal is to provide the tools boards need to work better. There are a few ways we do that: one is by basically living and breathing corporate governance. We anticipate trends and deliver solutions to stay ahead of them.

Another way is to listen. LIke us, our clients are focused on effective board governance. When they tell us they need new tools to improve their board’s performance or give them back some time in their day, we listen. 

Then we get to work. Our team of developers and engineers takes our clients’ requests and makes it happen, whether it’s an improvement to an existing tool or creating a whole new feature (they LOVE a challenge).

That’s how our recent innovative upgrades happened. Our forecast of the future of board governance plus the invaluable insights from our clients inspired a robust redesign. The new features were designed to make our board governance software even more intuitive, and it’s already saving clients’ time. It’s advanced technology that we designed to be simple.
