WASHINGTON, Oct. 06 /CSRwire/ - /PRNewswire/ - BoardSource, the leading provider of tools and resources related to nonprofit boards, announced a partnership with StreamLink Software to offer BoardSource Virtual Boardroom, a board management solution to manage and centralize all meeting, communication and board-related documents. The Web-based solution combines BoardSource's knowledge-based resources with StreamLink's board management technology.
"At BoardSource, we know that informed board members are more engaged, effective, and impactful within their organizations," said Anne Wallestad, Chief Operating Officer at BoardSource. "But keeping board members up-to-date on everything from calendars to documents to tasks can be challenging. BoardSource partnered with StreamLink because we believe in the ability of portals to improve communication, decrease cost, and increase effectiveness."
"BoardSource Virtual Boardroom will ensure that all governance-related documentation is in one place (from start to finish), will let us know who is or may be attending, and allows attaching all pertinent documentation to each agenda," said Bob Root of Theatre Works.
"BoardSource recognizes e-Governance is becoming an expectation for boards," said Adam Roth, President and CEO of StreamLink Software. "We launched BoardSource Virtual Boardroom at the recent BoardSource Leadership Conference where 17% of all attendees signed up for BoardSource Virtual Boardroom, an overwhelming response."
BoardSource Virtual Boardroom provides a central location for documents and communications to establish good governance processes that lead to greater public trust. BoardSource Virtual Boardroom is available for $40/month for BoardSource members and $50/month for non BoardSource members. A 30-day free trial is available, and start-up time is less than thirty minutes.
