A Few of My Favorite Things - Currently (Part 1)

Over the next few weeks, I will be publishing a series of blog posts named "A Few of My Favorite Things - Currently"  One commonality that will be visible in this series is the reliance on cloud technology at some level.

To start the series off, I have decided to focus on a mobile and web based application called “Boardpaq”  

Boardpaq is a new startup focused on planning, running and managing board meetings. I have been using Boardpaq extensively in my current role for about 10 months now and I can say that their application is well positioned for the SMB market and is much more cost effective than some of their competitors. 

If you are looking for a paperless solution for all your board documents while encouraging collaboration and communication, then I would strongly suggest looking at Boardpaq.

They currently have an iPad App and Web App that mimics functionality and experience, which is actually very unique when it comes to board management applications. Boardpaq is currently hosted on the Microsoft Azure platform that provides its resilience and federated scale.
