Dramatically Improving Board Effectiveness - Story of the City of Sterling, IL
Choosing BoardDocs to save time and money was easy!
When the City of Sterling decided to move to an electronic board management solution, BoardDocs made their decision simple. “The key to implementing any program is first in the training and support offered by the company and second is the ease-of-use. BoardDocs fit both of these criteria perfectly. The BoardDocs team made it easy, convenient and painless to move to an electronic board management system. The training during implementation and ongoing support are outstanding. I wish we had done this five years earlier!” said Skip Lee, City Mayor. READ MORE
