NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Diligent Corporation, the leading provider of board collaboration solutions to over 4,700 organizations and 140,000 users, today announced the launch of its new product, ‘Diligent Evaluations.’ The new tool available to Diligent Board customers operates a tailored solution that makes board evaluations easy to administer and analyze for both administrators and directors, providing a new approach to self-assessments, peer assessments and board evaluations.

Diligent Evaluations combines intuitive user design and detailed reporting with full Diligent Boards integration, and is the latest tool in Diligent’s premium suite of questionnaire products, joining Diligent D&O. Built on the intuitive, tested Diligent questionnaires foundation, Diligent Evaluations reduces the need for organizations to pay for costly evaluation consultancies, or risk security with manual or consumer evaluation tools. As with all Diligent products, Diligent Evaluations is protected by trusted, world-class security and backed with white-glove, 24/7 support.

“Diligent Evaluations is an all-in-one solution that will help to generate useful and attractive analytics reports around board performance. We’re excited to share this new offering as it is a feature the industry has been asking for, but is not yet available,” said Marco Morsella, Senior Vice President of Product Design at Diligent. “This new tool gives Diligent a great opportunity to meet global market demands and address some very specific needs for our clients.”

Diligent Evaluations key highlights include:

  • Reporting and Analysis— The export wizard lets you easily generate a variety of report types; including visual graph reports and Excel/PDF exports. All reports combine powerful analysis with great design, ready for sharing and presentation
  • Easy Assessment Creation — Through the easy-to-use interface, Diligent Evaluations enables you to get the assessment information your business needs while maintaining a familiar platform, eliminating the need for new software or integrations
  • Bulletproof Security — Diligent is ISO27001-2013 certified for its Information Security Management System with SSAE 16/ISAE 3402 (SOC 1, Type 2) controls audited for nine consecutive years

“We found we could be both a high-quality and cost-effective solution for board evaluation administration and analysis, particularly as companies are adopting more thorough evaluation processes,” said Brian Stafford, CEO of Diligent. “Our mission is to help companies improve governance and effectiveness in the board room with tools that are simple and secure.
