eBOARDsolutions introduces FREE Cost Savings Calculator to track potential Meetings and Policies Efficiencies
Free online tool allows districts to compare traditional methods of developing and managing meeting agendas and policies to online methods.
August 3rd, 2009 Atlanta- eBOARDsolutions, developer of eBOARD, announces a free online tool that allows districts to compare the costs associated with manually-produced materials such as Policy Manuals and Board, School Council and Staff Meeting Agendas to a web-based system such as eBOARD.
Many districts across the country are still producing meeting agendas and policies via traditional paper-based methods or simply publishing downloadable pdf files. Districts who are considering investing in web-based systems for managing meetings and policies can simply input variables such as printing costs and labor costs into the Cost Savings Calculator and can then easily analyze the financial savings and other advantages of managing these administrative functions via a web-based system. Once the information is entered, the tool will automate the calculations and users can print a pdf report of the results to share locally.
Mark Willis, COO of eBOARDsolutions, states: “Today’s economy and the subsequent budget shortfalls are key topics among school administrators and board members. With declining funds, districts must identify cheaper and more efficient ways to do business. Our new Cost Savings Calculator will give districts a concrete analysis of the potential cost savings that can be realized by leveraging low-cost technology tools like eBOARD.”
For those who are already subscribers to eBOARD, they can access and save the results from within their own eBOARD site by going to the support options link and clicking on the Cost Savings Calculator Tool.
The Cost Savings Calculator is also available for non-subscribers at www.eboardsolutions.com
