BVB Overview Video
The Official List of What Ifs
What if I don’t have tons of time to evaluate a board portal product?
OK, this might seem weird, but the best time to try BVB is when you’re swamped. In fact, we recommend that you wait to sign up until a few weeks before an actual board meeting. That way your user experience will be realistic, and you can reap the benefits of BVB as you plan, schedule and conduct your meeting. You should also know that BVB is designed to be super intuitive. Most users are up and running in 30 minutes.
What if some of the board or staff members don’t think we need a board portal?
That’s part of the reason our trial lets you add other users. It’s hard to sell people on the idea of potential benefits, but much easier to sell them on actual results. If you decide to go with BVB, you’re essentially asking your team to do things a bit differently and adopt a new approach. Not everyone embraces change with open arms. We’ve thought about some of the obstacles you may face when trying to get everyone on board with a technology solution. Most decisions on whether or not to adopt new software come down to concerns over time and money. BVB is as easy to use as an online banking account or email program. BVB is very affordable (and even less expensive if your organization is a member of BoardSource), and it can help you save time, money, and frustration while helping your organization better manage board-related communication and activities.
What if we decide to move forward with BVB after the trial period?
At the end of the trial, you’ll be able to securely enter your organization’s billing information, and set up the payment plan that’s right for you. Best of all, the data you enter during the trial stays with you, including your user name and password information. So you’ll be able to continue using BVB without delay.
What if we grow and need something more robust?
We hope that happens! When that time comes, please consider BoardMax, our complete board management software product. It offers additional features, tracks board performance, expectations, and responsibilities and drives governance best practices and compliance. It features the same look and feel as BVB so you won’t have to learn to navigate a new system, and it allows you to easily migrate your data so you won’t have to start from scratch.
