Washington, D.C. (Jan. 14, 2019)—The Independent Community Bankers of America® (ICBA) announced today it has extended its ICBA Preferred Service Provider agreement with Passageways, which offers the OnBoard Board Portal and OnSemble Employee Intranet to community banks nationwide. Passageways has been an ICBA Preferred Service Provider since 2015.
“In today’s complex banking environment, community bank directors and employees rely on readily accessible, accurate and timely information to ensure proper compliance and help meet business goals and objectives,” said Chris Lorence, ICBA’s group executive vice president of member engagement and strategy. “Passageways technology is easy-to-use, secure, and drives collaboration for more thoughtful deliberations.”
Passageways’ OnBoard Board Portal is a board meeting solution that streamlines in-person and remote meetings, making them more focused, effective, and productive. OnBoard is used by more than 2,000 boards and committees, to create digital agendas and includes tools for meeting notifications, surveys, approval of initiatives, and electronic signatures. OnBoard’s next gen design makes it accessible to everyone, a pick up and go solution that allows board members to work on their own schedule.
Passageways’ OnSemble is a drag and drop employee intranet that empowers workers to track goals, collaborate on documents, and discover the latest company news, while serving as a centralized resource for all product and services information.
“We are thrilled to continue our strategic relationship with ICBA,” said Paroon Chadha, Passageways co-founder and CEO. “We’ve worked with community banks for more than a decade to develop products that deliver value by improving governance and employee collaboration. This agreement cements Passageways commitment to community bankers.”
Passageways will also award six Community Bank Innovator Scholarships to its annual PowWOW user conference. At PowWOW, attendees gather for thought leadership, networking, and a first-look at Passageways’ plans for the future.
