Town & Country Housing Group is now using BoardPad software to create and distribute board packs for more than 50 board, committee and group executive meetings.
Paul Cooper, deputy company secretary, Town & Country Housing Group, said, “We estimated that it was costing us around £75,000 per year to put together our paper packs. We also wanted to reduce the amount of time it took for the company secretary’s department to collate, print and despatch the papers.
“After having looked at four competitive products, we selected BoardPad as it offered us the best all round package, including training and support.”
The switch to BoardPad has improved the efficiency of both administrators and board members. BoardPad’s intuitive interface and the ability to access board reports promptly has improved the overall decision-making abilities of the housing provider’s board and executive members. The ‘reading room’ feature in particular has become a useful tool for storing the group’s governance information, enabling the board to reference material easily and quickly.
Cooper said, “BoardPad is a time-saving tool for the company secretarial team. We can now set up a meeting from scratch and issue reports to members within three or four hours, rather than it taking days and having to rely on the post to deliver the reports.”
