Pros: Generally very easy to use and I particularly like the annotations and note system that I can use.

Cons: I am not always aware if I have the latest update installed and it can catch you out just as a Board meeting is about to start

Overall: Got rid of all the paper and gave 1 to 3 days more (depending on the post) to prepare for meetings

Easy and intuitive to use, does everything we need

Pros: The software has clearly set out sections, is easy and intuitive to use, has very informative user guides and excellent customer support.

Cons: This software doesn't do as much as as some of the other similar products out there. But it does enough (and in some cases more) that we need.

Overall: Security for our board information, control over users, a single place for all of the information and and easy to use system which is cost effective.

Rich features and intuitive. Saves you at least 40% compared to BoardVantage and Diligent

Comments: Being President at SELC Pro LLC, as part of my consulting, I was sometimes asked to give recommendations to nonprofits and medium-level companies on what board portal provider would be the best for their internal and strategic operations. I had tried many paperless meeting software providers, from the market leaders like Diligent and BoardVantage MeetX, the small players like BoardPaq, and to the midlevel players like BoardPad, BoardEffect, and Azeus Convene... Don't go for BoardPaq and BoardPad! They have lousy features and lousier support. BoardEffect is so-so. Diligent and BoardVantage is good, as long as you have money to burn. Convene is a hidden gem. It has as rich features, aesthetics, and intuitive interface as BoardVantage and Diligent, while costing at least 40% less. It's a clear winner for those who are practical. You have no idea how much it means for nonprofits, charities, and value-conscious companies and organizations to have a solution as good, yet as reachable, as Convene.

Pros: Convene is a hidden gem. It has as rich features, aesthetics, and intuitive interface as BoardVantage and Diligent, while costing at least 40% less! It's a clear winner for those who are value-conscious.

Cons: Limited end-user and administrator training sessions. The only clear and concrete advantage that Diligent has over Convene is that they have unlimited individual user training. However, Convene is so intuitive and easy-to-use that you don't need to go beyond their free first 4 user/administrator training sessions.

Comments: Easy to use and powrful functions. The "Back Office" interface is very flexible and make putting a meeting "Pack" together really quick and straightforward. Convene works across a number of platforms making it ideal for BYOD. We have found customer service to have been very responsive and helpful in adapting the software in response to our feedback. Users need little training as it is very intuitative.
Only niggles are that the sign out "button" isn't obvious in the App and that if you don't sign out after downloading the "Pack" before going offline, or if you lose connection, then you have difficulties logging in again.

Fix this and it it would be five star.
