What is Board Connect?

Board Connect is a Microsoft Teams app that brings the documentation and meeting details related to board meetings into one central location, where it’s easier to collaborate.

In most businesses, preparing, reviewing and collaborating on board-related documentation is extremely time-consuming and ineffective. It's also done mostly via email or ad-hoc conversations. As well as wasting time, this process exposes businesses to unnecessary security risks.

Built on Microsoft Teams, Board Connect works seamlessly with the Office 365 suite, which makes it very easy and simple for users to come up to speed – regardless of their level of technical expertise. It works seamlessly with your existing Microsoft Teams investment to help your people.

“The modern board is under enormous pressure, and producing board reports requires extensive collaboration and teamwork. A customised business application like Board Connect, built on Microsoft Teams, can deliver enormous value by streamlining this workload.”

– Rachel Bondi,
Commercial Partner Director, Microsoft Australia

“Currently, most of our board-related collaboration is done over email or phone, which can be very time consuming. Reviewing documentation prior to a board meeting is very time intensive, and finer details are often discussed in the meeting itself—rather than beforehand. To be able to have a central repository of all the board papers would be incredible.”

– Sharanya Srikanth,
Board Member of the Women's Housing Company
