Sympose provides most of the features of other board portals but at a fraction of the price.
Pay for only what you need
Most board portal products are geared towards large companies. Gold plated features with gold plated pricing.
Sympose has been designed instead to be affordable for smaller non-profit and government organisations. With Sympose you get the features you need and avoid paying for the features you don’t.
Sympose doesn’t have expensive ongoing licence fees or charge you for each user of the system. You can have as many users as you want without the price increasing. Our ongoing fees are low and designed only to cover the hosting and maintenance of your Sympose website. A small non-profit organisation can use Sympose for as little as $111.67 (ex-GST) per meeting.
