Moving towards an electronic boardpaper

When discussing the possible introduction of an electronic boardpaper, there are a few considerations each business should be aware of:

• Security

An electronic boardpaper is very secure. Look at the security features versus the risk of paper delivery. Have couriers ever failed to deliver a boardpaper correctly? Have confidential papers ever been lost?

When an electronic boardpaper is misplaced, the actual device would be password protected, uploaded documents are encrypted and content can be wiped remotely.

• Reliability

Many electronic boardpaper providers will have processes in place to prevent systems from crashing or to limit the impact, should an issue occur. For example, if a server does experience an issue, then connection should automatically be transferred to an alternative server.

• Intuitive annotation tools

This is easy to do, with the electronic boardpaper solutions that have built-in annotation, allowing directors to make comments, add notes, underline key points or free draw, in much the same way as if they were using a traditional boardpaper 

• Adoption

An electronic boardpaper is designed to be as intuitive and user-friendly as possible. Directors generally get to grips with them very quickly. It’s important they are properly guided in their use by the provider and that on-going support is available. 

• Support though the transition

Once directors are used to the convenience of electronic board packs you may find this is no longer the case. But if a director does want a hard copy of a document, it is easy to create one from an electronic boardpaper. 

Your directors will definitely appreciate the fact that using electronic board packs means they have all their documents in one place, accessible at any time, and would no longer need to carry bulky documents.
