In less than 3 months of adopting BoardMax, we totally replaced our paper meeting packet with online distribution, and board members can print the entire packet or specific documents.
Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) July 22, 2011
StreamLink Software, a provider of nonprofit software management systems, announced that it has experienced a growing trend by nonprofit organizations to adopt BoardMax, StreamLink’s Board Management software, to manage compliance and collaborate with its board. StreamLink has added its 100th BoardMax customer, and most notably, StreamLink has recognized rapid growth particularly in the community foundation sector.
Brian Frederick, Executive Director of the Community Foundation of Lorain, was surprised to quickly experience the impact BoardMax had on his organization. Said Frederick, “We've struggled for years to find the right technology to collaborate with our Board of Directors. In less than 3 months of adopting BoardMax, we totally replaced our paper meeting packet with online distribution, and board members can print the entire packet or specific documents. BoardMax has saved significant staff time in constructing materials for the various Board and Committee meetings. We’re well on our way to changing our board culture from paper to less-paper (a realistic version of paperless).”
“We are pleased to see rapid adoption of BoardMax in the nonprofit sector, and particularly with community foundations,” said Adam Roth, President and CEO of StreamLink Software. “Community Foundations are taking the lead when it comes to proactively managing compliance and e-governance, and they are also becoming more efficient and reducing costs. Through improved collaboration enabled by BoardMax, they have recognized a more engaged board and good governance.”
BoardMax has been adopted by a wide range of community foundations from The Cleveland Foundation with billions in assets to the Nicholas County Community Foundation with millions in assets. Said David Goldberg, Immediate Past Chairman of The Cleveland Foundation, “I am delighted with BoardMax’s simple and intuitive interface, and consequently, it has been embraced by our board.”
“As a young, volunteer-driven organization we were excited by the communication platform BoardMax offered us,” said Stephanie Randolph, Executive Director of the Nicholas County Community Foundation. “Now we have one central location where all board members, committee members and our part time staff can go to access up to date meeting information, policies and current reports from the other committees. It’s a tool that will increase communication, involvement and cut down on the secretarial staffing needs.”
StreamLink has scheduled a webinar, “Discover How Community Foundations Can Improve Collaboration with Its Board Through Technology,” which will highlight how e-governance can support both the engagement and compliance of community foundation boards. For more information, visit:
