About Simbli

Simbli is a cloud-based board management software which provides tools for managing meetings, policies, planning, and evaluations to governments, nonprofits, school boards, and other decision-making bodies.

Simbli’s meeting management solution allows users to manage all meeting types from a single location, and align meetings to strategic plans and goals. Meetings can be searched for and sorted by type, date, and other criteria. Users can create notes for individual agenda items, and meeting minutes and votes can be recorded. The strategic planning tools enable the creation, management, and tracking of action plans, strategic plans, facilities plans, technology plans, school improvement plans, and more. Plans can be viewed, printed, and downloaded in multiple formats, such as data sheets, maps, and calendar views. Team and individual progress can be tracked through the strategic planning dashboard, which includes balanced scorecards. Plans can also be filtered and sorted by status, priority, due date, department, owner, and more.

With Simbli’s policy software, users can manage all board policies, procedures, administrative regulations, and exhibits in a single location. Draft policies can be posted for public review, allowing stakeholders to comment before policy adoption, and policies can be linked to related legal references, empowering stakeholders to investigate their own queries. Old versions of policies are automatically archived, enabling the tracking of policy changes. Simbli also allows users to manage multiple evaluation types, including organizational reviews, board self-assessments, and leader evaluations, and users can utilize existing evaluation templates or create their own. Evidence such as policies, supporting documents, and performance measures can be linked to evaluations.

    Simbli helps us save time and money. It helps automate the routine tasks we do everyday, increasing both efficiency and effectiveness. Now that we've been using it, I'm not sure we could ever go back!

    Pros

    Our board loves the fact that Simbli helps us with all of our board management needs including meetings, planning, policies, and evaluations. We've actually managed to eliminate several other software platforms we invested in and helps us keep all of our data and information in one, central location. We had a party when we took our massive board policy binders and dumped them in the trash!

    We also love the support eBOARDsolutions provides. I've never met a more helpful bunch of folks. They routinely go above and beyond to provide free training and support that comes with the purchase of the product. They often say that the measure of a product is how much it actually gets used and the support team has made sure we get the most out of the product each and every day.

    Cons

    While they do have a dedicated iPad app which is brilliant, it would be helpful if they also had a dedicated app for Android as well. You can easily access the software via a browser on any device but it may be easier for those who have something other than an iPad.

    board members and other administrators can utilize this program to see all the work being done

    Pros

    I like a place that everything can be together. We can put every meeting in our district in one place. I like being able to pull up an old contract, see when the schools have had a leadership meeting, etc. I like that documents are uploaded too. I love the new features with the minutes. This is a great help.

    Cons

    Sometimes it is hard to search for things, if you do not know exactly how you put that in. There isn't anything wrong with the program, it is like that with word too. I am happy with the new features that help me a lot with finding the meetings and the overall help with the minutes. That really needed to be improved!

    We can keep all of our meetings organized in one app and publish the link in many different places.

    Pros

    The look, how easy it is to create a new meeting, the front page with pictures and information looks good on our webpage. I think the support team is great and one of my favorite features is clicking the help button and getting help right away. The user manual is also very helpful.

    Cons

    There is too much clicking . The formatting of text on the edit tool is not user friendly. It should be easy like a Microsoft program. Instead I have to learn code just to format an item. Minutes are cumbersome as I have to click item by item . I have many recurrent items month after month that I have to retype because I can't import minutes from a prior meeting. I have to reformat Agendas and Minutes in Microsoft Word. I could never use a PDF Agenda created with SIMBLI - formatting never looks good. I am not able to download all of the attachments at the same time - I can download the meeting then go back in each folder and grab the attachment. SIMBLI consumes too much of my time for items that should be faster and easier.

    Eboard has been a great change for our old "book style" board meetings

    Reviewed on 2018/05/27

    Pros

    We were able to completely move to an electronic Board Meeting from the old Pen and Paper solution. We are able to save a TON of paper, because our Board Members required a set of papers for their home and for the meeting, then we had to re-print everything on larger pages for our Minutes Book. It has saved tons of time and money!

    Cons

    We had some issues with setting up our templates for the board meetings due to the way our old templates were setup. This is not a problem with the software, persay, it is more a problem with the way that we did things. I would, however, prefer a way to setup a custom template with %field% names to be able to drop into specific places in the template.

    Response from eBOARDsolutions

    Thanks for your review, Michael - very much appreciated!

GSBA has been using the application for almost a decade and we've been tremendously pleased with the products, services, and exceptional support the eBOARDsolutions Team provides. Highly recommend!

There's tremendous flexibility with the software and it help us reduce both the time and expense associated with preparing for, conducting, and managing meetings.
