Why Collaboard?

CB Testimonial

I primarily use Collaboard in online meetings. One area where Collaboard consistently proves its worth is a problem familiar from video chats: as a group, we discuss the same points seemingly endlessly, and while the outcome is accepted by participants, it is not fully embraced. Here, Collaboard is immensely helpful. Everyone gets the opportunity to visualize their ideas and thought processes within the context of the discussion.

"Collaboard not only offers the highest data security but the design and features are also very modern and appealing. For example, embedding GIFs and videos supports project work enormously. Working on projects nationwide and in real time, sharing ideas and developing them together, that's innovation and is a big priority at Pronova BKK."

Collaboard Reference Gerland

"The biggest benefit for everyone is the worry-free use. Users can log in with their university account and know that everything has been checked for data protection and officially approved. The teachers are happy that they no longer have any limitations and can now fully use the tool in their teaching."

"With Collaboard, our Sprint Retros for example are much more collaborative and efficient, and the most important thing is that we have fun doing it. The mix of existing templates and the space to let your own creativity play is great. The communication was not only on a high technical level, but also personally very friendly and smooth."
