What Are Our Customers Saying?
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
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.
Adam Westley, Company Secretary and Head of Compliance
The service and support provided by the Diligent Account Management Team to I-MED has been exceptional. The feedback from the board members was very positive after our first Board meeting and our Chair was very complimentary about Diligent’s Support Service following an incident when he was overseas and he contacted Support for assistance.
Angeline Emery, Company Secretary
Essar Oil is committed to GO GREEN and our top management is constantly pushing for initiatives which increase our green credentials. Our board-of-directors and senior leadership team use Diligent Boards (formerly Diligent Boardbooks) which allows us to conduct entirely paperless board & performance review meetings by providing secure access to documents and reports, eliminating redundant tasks and significantly improving collaboration while supporting effective governance at all levels.
