Electronic Governance

OSBA has partnered with BoardDocs to offer paperless agenda services that give governing bodies turn-key electronic solutions for processing virtually any type of governance document. As the pioneer of eGovernance, BoardDocs has helped over 1,000 organizations dramatically reduce costs, increase transparency and reduce the time spent producing board packets by up to 75 percent. Because BoardDocs solutions are so easy to use, organizations will operate more effectively from day one.

OSBA BoardDocs' next-generation, paperless services allow organizations to significantly improve the way they create and manage packets, access information and conduct meetings. Organizations can also determine which stakeholders have access to each document - board members, staff and the general public. Last minute revisions are easy and documents can be redistributed in just minutes.

Cloud-based technology makes it possible to archive, search and retrieve board material from any computer with an Internet connection. BoardDocs solutions are fully supported on most mobile devices, including the Apple iPad. Plus, only BoardDocs includes dedicated project management, user-friendly on-site training and US-based, 7 x 24 technical support with every subscription. BoardDocs’ unique, state-of-the-art solutions also have a positive effect on the environment.
