Board portal software can be an excellent technology investments for a nonprofit organization. However, this type of specialty software has historically tended to be a bit pricey, so it’s not uncommon for nonprofits with smaller budgets to hack together various free-but-unconnected software tools in an attempt to replicate board portal functionality.
A few years ago, a local businesswoman named Marion Lewis showed me a demo of a software package her company had under development, BoardBookit. Even in beta mode, the product was highly usable and functional. I remember being particularly impressed by how easy it was to use the mobile device interface.
In the years since, BoardBookit has launched its product and gained quite a customer base. I recently saw an article about them in the Post-Gazette stating that the company is making its software available for free to nonprofits that have budgets under $2 million.
