6 Board Software Alternatives to Diligent Boards & BoardVantage

What is Board Management Software? 

Board management software are technology solutions to help organize board packages, board discussions and communications, agendas, approvals, scheduling, voting, attendance, recording minutes, and other related functions. Effective board management software should replace email and loose files with a centralized source of truth for all board information to streamline processes, avoid oversights, and ensure best governance practices. 

What Are the Options for Board Management Products in the Market? 

Although the two legacy incumbent Diligent Boards and Nasdaq BoardVantage have the majority market share due to their age, their software is dated and many legal teams are looking for more modern alternatives that provide improved user experiences.

Here is a list of the top six board management software vendors to Diligent Boards and BoardVantage that have both modern products as well as robust organizations that can support delivery and ongoing support.
