Earth Day has been observed since 1970, and every year more and more people celebrate sustainability by coming up with new ways to conserve Earth’s natural resources. Passageways keeps track of how many pages of paper OnBoard has saved for each and everyone of our clients. Since our launch, Passageways has saved an astounding 54,556,107 pages of paper. That’s 30,000,000 million increase since last year.

What sets high performing cultures apart from other organizations, what’s their secret? That was the subject that Steven Rice, the Chief Human Resources Officer for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, discussed with us this week in a wide ranging webinar on the impact of culture on organizations.

We know that healthcare providers experience frustration when selecting and adopting solutions developed by vendors, particularly when there’s the prospect that individual electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI) may be handled by the vendor and their solution. HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act was designed to create uniform safeguards and policies for how to handle ePHI for both vendors and healthcare providers.
Passageways OnBoard is HIPAA compliant. This demonstrates our commitment to all healthcare providers. We have always taken pride in both privacy and security, this is the natural extension of that commitment.
There are many occasions when eSignatures prove vital to good governance, expediting the speed of business, and driving secure collaboration in the boardroom and beyond. Let’s see how eSignatures work, how they will improve your workflow, and how OnBoard makes eSignatures easier than ever.
eSignatures offer the same legal standing as a handwritten signature. Providing a fast, secure, and accurate identification alternative for signatures, while keeping all your records compliant.
This perfectly legal, markedly more secure, amazingly simple process is the frontier of the complete digital transformation of board governance. Here’s what you should know about the legal status of eSignatures.
Here at Passageways we’ve had an amazing year. We launched OnBoard for the iPhone, Windows Surface, and Android devices. We completely updated the OnBoard experience for iPads and the web. We launched OnSemble 6, retooling the design and functionality of the entire suite. We relaunched our Help Centers, were amazed by customers at Passageways University, and of course had a blast at PowWOW. It’s been a busy year.
But the holiday’s are near, and with the New Year just shy of a week away, we thought we would take stock of 2016. We wanted to take look back at the events, people, and places that made this year so remarkable. These are but a few of our favorite moments of 2016.
Kathump. Kathump. Kathump. The Grand Bank of Texas’s photocopier used to work overtime before a board meeting, cranking out reams of agendas, minutes and background for 16 members to study and scribble on.
Assistants collated, added, checked and stuffed. Then—oops, usually there was some last-minute change or addition. Reprint the board book, explain the change, mail again to the 12 members not with the $284 million-asset community bank headquartered in Dallas.
“This was a pain,” says Senior Vice President Chad Smith.
So last spring, Grand Bank purchased a license to use OnBoard, a meeting management software from a Lafayette, Ind., company called Passageways, an ICBA Preferred Service Provider of board-meeting software for community banks. Besides avoiding the time and paper waste—not to mention the ballooning postage costs—officials sought greater efficiency and security.
