Watford Community Housing Trust is using BoardPacks software on iPads to make its board papers easier to use and reduce the administrative burden and cost of preparing them.
Julie Robinson, director of resources, Watford Community Housing Trust, said, “BoardPacks is simple to use, and board members that were already familiar with Apple products found it very easy to make the switch to the paperless system.
“Using the BoardPacks app on iPads has allowed users to make notes and thoroughly discuss agenda items anywhere, anytime more easily, instead of having to try and find or reorder the board papers.”
Following a trial with a small number of board members, the BoardPacks app is now being used for all of the housing provider’s board meetings.
Robinson said, “At first, we were worried that the app would affect decision making, but this has not been a problem at all – in fact it has helped decision making. The BoardPacks software has delivered efficiency to our processes, paper savings, and now we don’t have to worry about the confidentiality of our board papers.”
