Passageways, the parent company of OnBoard, a board management service provider, has acquired eScribe Software Ltd., a cloud-based governance and meeting management solution for public sector boards, committees, and councils.

“Like every sector, government bodies are undergoing digital transformation and modernizing to meet constituents’ expectations,” said Paroon Chadha, CEO and co-founder of OnBoard. “With this acquisition, together OnBoard and eScribe can help them meet their challenges, improve decision-making, and provide transparency. We continue to create a future where technology frees boards – of all types – to pursue bold action with strong governance and accountability.”

“We’re thrilled to join OnBoard and continue the critical work of making meetings and our customers as effective as possible,” said Robert Treumann, Founder and CEO of eScribe. “With our complementary offerings, we’ll continue to invest in product innovation to successfully empower our customers here in Canada and the United States with the most effective meeting and board management solutions possible.”

The acquisition builds on a year of events for OnBoard, including a strategic brand update in April and a $100M growth investment from JMI Equity in June.
