Lafayette, IN, October 30, 2018 – Passageways, the leading provider of secure collaboration software for employees and boards of directors, today announced the acquisition of its 25th client for its AGB OnBoard platform, a co-branded product developed in partnership with the Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges (AGB).
AGB OnBoard is a next generation meeting solution for boards, leadership, and other higher education committees and deliberative bodies, combining powerful tools to more efficiently prepare for and manage meetings, seamless integration across all devices, and exclusive free access to AGB content resources.
“AGB OnBoard is not just another board portal solution,” said Ken Knueven, AGB Senior Consultant. “AGB OnBoard allows trustees or directors to come better prepared to board meetings and more proactively collaborative. At a time when higher education is adopting more nimble business strategies and working to be more responsive to stakeholder needs, AGB OnBoard is an essential tool to successfully manage change and foster growth.”
“Our partnership brings together two passionate groups in their respective domains of expertise,” said Passageways Co-Founder and CEO Paroon Chadha. “Seeing AGB OnBoard being adopted at 25 colleges and universities in just 25 weeks is very gratifying. We are just scratching the surface here, especially with all the joint innovation we have in the pipeline.”
The partnership of AGB and Passageways represents over a century of thought leadership, innovation, and expertise in higher education governance. AGB OnBoard launched in late April 2018 at AGB’s National Conference on Trusteeship. AGB OnBoard is fast becoming a standard for higher education governance professionals.
“When I attended the AGB Conference in April I was introduced to AGB OnBoard and I was impressed with the solution. During our May meeting the board mentioned they would like to move to a digital format and were tired of paper. It was truly serendipity. I already had a solution for them,” said June Brown, Secretary to the Board of Trustees, University of Tulsa.
“We studied a number of board solutions when we were seeking a strategic tool to enhance board collaboration, and AGB OnBoard was the best value in both features and cost,” said Joseph Pauwels, Assistant Vice President, Advancement Services at Ohio University. “The partnership Passageways has with AGB helped assure us we were making the right decision.”
