About Process PA
The Process PA software is a governance portal designed to help boards and management committees organize and streamline their workflows. Process PA features include agenda templates, automatic minutes, members’ register, and document storage.
Process PA is a cloud-based software solution, which means secretaries and board members don’t have to download and install anything on their devices — they can simply access the board portal through a web browser.
What is Process PA best for?
This board portal contributes to effective board governance by simplifying tasks and ensuring committee processes are hassle-free. Read on to discover some of the ways Process PA will help you reduce administration time while keeping your organization board running smoothly.
Keep track of board members
With the Process PA board portal, you have a members’ register that will allow you to keep track of who’s on your board, what their contact details are, and what roles they have within the board.
Process PA automates association procedures for simple handover continuity. This means that when there are any changes to the board, adding and saving committee members — and entering their term durations and roles — is intuitive and quick.
Process PA’s meeting management features include an agenda builder that will allow you to add, order, reorder and delete agenda items with only a few clicks.
Once the agenda is ready, you can share it with your board members. If you need to make any last-minute changes to the agenda, no problem — board members will receive automatic notifications.
Store documents securely
Any board is bound to generate quite a few documents, and — though there are probably days when you wish you could throw them all away — you are required to keep many of them. But storing documents is not a problem with Process PA.
This board portal offers secure document storage, so all you need to do is digitize your documents, upload the files onto the portal, and enjoy working with less paper around.
