Adam Westley, Company Secretary and Head of Compliance
Melrose sought to speed up the process of board pack dissemination, and to remove the need for hard copy papers. Paper board packs are also an obvious security risk, and we wanted to ensure that confidential materials are kept secure. Diligent offers us this security.

Angeline Emery, Company Secretary
We decided it was time to automate the process and started to look at board portals. Our goal was to increase efficiency, decrease costs and reduce our use, and wastage, of paper. At the same time, we had to make sure the directors were comfortable moving away from physical books to a privately hosted cloud-based solution. Diligent Boards (formally Diligent Boardbooks) fulfilled all of our requirements, and more.
