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
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
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
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
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.

Godiva Chocolatier, Inc.
What I like about the Diligent Boards (formerly Diligent Boardbooks) iPad application is its ease of use. It maintains the ‘feel’ of paper, while making good use of the enhanced efficiencies that modern technology affords. Out of all the vendors we investigated, Diligent Boards (formerly Diligent Boardbooks) provided the best combination of features at a good price. We now have over 240 participants across 103 Boards and Committees.
Paul McKenna, Deputy Group Company Secretary
The quality of the Diligent Boards (formerly Diligent Boardbooks) product was outstanding compared with the competition. Then again, Diligent had their solution long before the iPad was introduced. Many other solutions entered the market with the introduction of apps and are in catch-up mode. And Diligent innovates its solution in response to changing customer needs to stay ahead of the curve.
David Morris, Deputy Company Secretary
The roll out with Diligent was fast, easy and painless. We started with the plc board but are now rolling it out to the operating divisions. It works just as well here as for the main board.
David Morris, Deputy Company Secretary
I would just like to place on record the most fantastic help and assistance that I get from your entire team. The manner with which the team has constantly and efficiently assisted me with my sometimes laborious requests is earth shatteringly awesome and I sincerely believe this is not the first commendation yourself or your team will be getting.
Chidi Okezie, Company Secretary
Stanbic IBTC Holdings PLC
We have used Diligent Boards (formerly Diligent Boardbooks) for over two years and are very pleased with their product. Diligent’s support staff is excellent and the portal is user friendly. In addition, the resource center is an excellent way for us to deliver important information to our directors. We continually look for ways to further use Diligent and have never been disappointed in its functionality.
Michael R McCoy, Vice President and Corporate Secretary
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
We have been delighted with the success of our Diligent Boards (formerly Diligent Boardbooks) implementation. Our Directors enjoy using Diligent Boards (formerly Diligent Boardbooks) on their iPads and have commented on how much simpler it is than our old system of paper packs. We have a fantastic relationship with our account manager in Christchurch and the entire Diligent team are great to work with.
Andrew Brown, General Council
KiwiRail Holding Limited
Coffs Harbour City Council needed a reliable and secure way to electronically publish and distribute our Council Agendas and supporting documents to our Councillors. After careful evaluation, we agreed to implement Diligent Boards (formerly Diligent Boardbooks). We were delighted how well Diligent took care of every aspect of the implementation and both our Councillors and our executive staff have commented on the simplicity and reliability of the Diligent Boards (formerly Diligent Boardbooks) application.
Steve Bayliss, CIO
