What Are Our Customers Saying?
Both in my role as Assistant Secretary with The University of Tennessee Board of Trustees and now as Secretary to the UT Foundation Board of Directors, Diligent has streamlined our process for sharing material. The ease of use has simplified communication among executives and directors alike. Additionally, the convenience of access to the documents anytime through the online portal is perfect for busy Board members.
Rachael Renee, Assistant Secretary
The University of Tennessee
If the rest of the world worked like Diligent, it would be a much better place.
Cynthia Cox, General Manager/Director of Investor Relations and Marketing
Cheyne Capital Management
THANKS for being so on top of this! I continue to be seriously impressed with your customer service.
Hannah Ellenson, Associate Director of Leadership Development
New Israel Fund
I’m a big fan right now; I have no complaints. The stress was taken out of my job in knowing that my board members had easy access to the material just by syncing their Board books…..so much simpler than uploading to our internal SharePoint site and then having the Board members have trouble accessing our internal system.
Carol Dean, Senior Executive Assistant
At Rothbury, we take pride in our profession and in delivering professional services. Diligent understood our business from the outset, and have provided us with concierge service and support at all times, along with an intuitive and user-friendly interface. Diligent has impressed our Board members, and both our Administrators and Directors commend the decision to implement Diligent Boards in our organisation. Diligent Boards has just brought the Board management process into the 21st century.
Doug Thompson, Executive Director
Rothbury Insurance Brokers
After careful consideration, we selected Diligent Boards in April 2014 as our vehicle to distribute Committee and Board meeting material to our Directors. We found the Diligent Boards Staff to be well versed, courteous and informative about their product during training sessions and they remain available to provide assistance after normal business hours. The product is very user friendly and offers various options on how to load your material into a secured environment. Our meeting material recipients have indicated that it is easy to access the material for viewing and/or printing. Overall, we are very pleased with the product.
Kelly Blackwell, Law Dept./The Corporate Secretary’s Office
We were really looking for a winning combination of solid security, the best back-end functionality that the secretariat team would use and the front-end that the directors get on the iPad. The only company that met all of Lonmin’s criteria was Diligent
Rob Bellhouse, Company Secretary and Head of Legal
Our board materials are now produced, distributed and reviewed in a much more efficient way. And virtual meetings can be conducted anywhere, securely and efficiently, improving collaboration and connectivity across our organization. We also need to maintain high levels of corporate governance as we continue to develop our businesses and execute our strategy. Diligent has been our trusted partner and provides us an executive communications solution which is easy-to-use. It has increased the mobility of our directors and other executives in dispersed locations in accessing information in a very secure way.
Robert L. Rosen, General Counsel
Halcyon Agri now has a reliable board portal solution that raises the bar for flexibility, security and efficiency of board communications. The Diligent Boards solution has transformed the way our directors access, review and approve board documents and reports. With many of our board members constantly on the move, having such a secure and easy-to-use digital platform provides more effective board-level communications before, during and after meetings. Moving to a paperless system has also had the added benefits of reducing printing costs, supporting our sustainability goals, as well as releasing internal administrative and IT capacity.
Pascal Demierre, Executive Director
Halcyon Agri Corporation
For me, the Diligent platform is easy to use and very intuitive, and the user support is first-rate.
Cam Hoang, Senior Counsel and Assistant Secretary
I’ve worked in many industries and with hundreds of vendors but I can honestly say that I’ve never experienced better customer service than I have with Diligent. Your growth is confirmation of that!

NSW Businesslink Pty Ltd compared Diligent Boards (formerly Diligent Boardbooks) against a number of competitors. We were amazed at how easy it was to use for both Administrators and Directors. Diligent’s professional Account Managers and exceptional 24/7 help desk also stood out. Now directors just carry their iPads with them.
Angela Leonello, Executive Officer
NSW Businesslink Pty Ltd
After engaging with several suppliers to provide a solution, the Diligent platform was the most user friendly of them all, both for the Administrator building the boardbooks and the end user. The support from all the team is amazing.
Paula Fowler, PA to Rosemary Martin, Group General Counsel & Company Secretary
Vodafone Group Services Limited
As a global company, our board members are located in a number of countries. Through Diligent Boards, I am able to ensure that important company materials get to them instantaneously and securely, rather than relying on courier service or other means of electronic communication. Confidentiality is also an important differentiator that Diligent offers.
Mohamed Elsarky, CEO
Godiva Chocolatier, Inc.
Coverys is dedicated to helping our clients identify and manage risk so it is incredibly important for our board members and executives to use technology that meets the highest standards of security. Diligent Boards has enabled our board to seamlessly communicate but within a security framework that limits our own risk.
