Empowering Credit Union Boardroom Portals
Credit union boardrooms have not only done a creditable job adopting mobile technology to meet their members’ banking needs, but have also been at the forefront in leveraging the power of the Internet to improve non-customer-facing tasks.
As early as 2008, many credit union boards began using online board portals – Web-based platforms that simplify how board materials are produced, delivered and reviewed. However, the past two years have led to an explosion in credit unions’ adoption of board portals, fueled by the proliferation of tablets and business apps.
While directors may use an iPad personally, moving to a digital reading experience may be new territory. A good board portal should actually be even easier to use than a paper book, featuring an intuitive interface, easy navigation and other add-on benefits like search, voting, and approvals that take the experience to the next level.
