HONG KONG RUGBY UNION PICKS DILIGENT’S BOARD PORTAL SERVICE

HONG KONG – 25 October 2017 – Diligent Corporation, the leading provider of secure board collaboration solutions to over 4,700 organisations and 140,000 users worldwide, today announced that the Hong Kong Rugby Union (HKRU) has chosen the software solution to be made available to its senior management team staff as well as its Board of Directors.

Diligent’s Board Management Software enables more efficient and effective governance in board meetings year-round.

Mr Brian Stafford, CEO of Diligent Corporation, said: “I am pleased that HKRU has decided to adopt Diligent’s suite of solutions. Technology can create helpful efficiencies. However, many board members are using it in ways that make them vulnerable to cyber-attacks. We look forward to helping HKRU’s board members to leverage Diligent’s tools to be more effective without sacrificing personal convenience or critical information security.”

HKRU is the governing body of Hong Kong Rugby and a non-profit organisation where all revenue is channelled back into developing the game. Hong Kong Rugby has flourished, with 61 men’s teams playing in eight divisions and 25 women’s teams playing in three divisions.

Mr Rocky Chow, Chief Commercial Officer of Hong Kong Rugby Union, said: “We decided to migrate to Diligent, as their software is easy to use. Another advantage is that they provide 24/7/365 concierge-level service support, which is of great help. Before adopting their software, Diligent also provides one-on-one training for each of our Directors. This makes the migration to their system seamless.”

Diligent is rapidly expanding its footprint in Asia through its partnership with the Singapore Exchange recently and currently serves more than 162 companies in this region.
