"Boardon Review"

Comments: Together we made a good pilot of the software, and I think this really will be a great use for securing the pre-boarding process in the future. Also, the support I got from the team of Boardon was high class!

Pros: I really liked the graphic design of the software. The final product is clean and friendly. With some minor fixes, this software can go big!

Cons: The build-up process of the plans. I think this needs to be more user friendly in the future. More layout, less text.

"Best Value Preboarding Solution that Builds Employer Brand"

Comments: Boardon is an adaptive, beautiful software to help new employees assimilate the culture and new information about their organization.

Pros: I enjoyed selecting and using this software because:
It is inexpensive
Customizable
Fantastic impression on the new hire

Cons: It took me a couple of days to understand how to create a learning plan and upload video content. However, the support team was extremely quick to respond and helpful, so there was almost no issue with getting things accomplished.

"Review: Boardon as a part of our onboarding process"

Comments: Easy and "appealing". Really nice and easily accessible support

Pros: Boardon enables us to send information about the workplaces to the new employee before the employment actually has begun. It allows the new eployee to access the information directly in the mobile phone. It gives us the ability to follow up the extent to which the new employee has received the information. Its user friendly.

Cons: It takes a long time for me as the sole administrator to revise documents and upload new files. Otherwise I can not think of anything.

"One klick to you new company"

Comments: Easy to use, very appreciated software. Quick and personal support!

Pros: After just one klick, the world of our new company opens up. You don´t need to download an app, you don´t need to login to start exploring facts about your new workplace.

Cons: It has been difficult to get a quick overview of some statistics.

"Great preboarding/introduction system"

Comments: Before Boardon, we had a less structured preboarding and introduction. With Boardon, we have a professional looking preboarding that gives our new employees a great first impression of us as a company. We can prepare the new employees before their first day, which both the new employee and the company benefits from.

Pros: Boardon is very user-friendly and with a professional look. The platform is ready to use, just enter your material and information about the company and you are ready to go. Easy to customize to each new employee. Timesaving and gives a great first impression for the new employee.

Cons: Boardon checks every box, and the customer support of the company has been great. They answer very fast and have even customized the platform based on our needs. For the purpose, an efficient preboarding and introduction, this system is great. As a HR specialist I am not an IT-expert, and with this system I could manage everything by myself with no help from IT.
