Pros: It's secure, password protected, easy to use, very little training needed to use, has many features "built in" that I love, i.e. automatic save as you build the sites. Can view documents from any device. I love the "note taking" feature and the ability to do questionnaires, vote for board items option, and fingerprint sign-on. I also love the drag and drop method to load documents onto your sight, and the ability to drag your tabs into another position. I love how there is always a new feature being implemented or developed. They listen to the customer and create what "you" think is important. The program moves you through the pages quickly. It never gets bogged down. Our Board of Directors love Boardbooks and plan to continue using this product for a long time. We have all of our committees and our main board meetings on Diligent Boardbooks. We love the paperless feature and the security of our documents. We never have to worry about confidential information being in the wrong hands. We are fans!! We can't say enough good things about Diligent Boards and the great people at Diligent. Great Customer Service! Friendly! Professional. Always available to help you day or night. We have used Diligent Boards since 2010 and they have never let us down. They are well trained professionals. They help make your job easier! Thanks Diligent!

Cons: Many more Pros than cons. If I have an issue with the product/software, its because I am not using it correctly. The only thing I can think of is, that it may be nice to have an "undo" feature in case I accidentally choose the incorrect option and something gets deleted. It has not happened yet.

Overall: It saves me time in preparing for board meeting and committee meetings. Less printing of documents, so it saves time. It is more secure with no hard copies getting left around. Paperless meetings are the best way to go. The board members can view or access the material anywhere in the world and on any device. You are never out of reach so you can always attend important meetings while out of town, and with carrying no paper copies. You always have it at your fingertips. Documents can be loaded quickly, even in the middle of a meeting. The users never know new documents are being loaded, so no interruptions. I always know where to go back to find documents. it has been a real asset in this company.

Absolutely the best board technology solution on the market

Pros: Ease of Use by our board members and very easy to create books and upload documents. There are many additional features that make it such a great product. The customer service is excellent.

Cons: We utilize the Resource Center to store documents for the board members - this section could use some improvement.

Pros: Easy to use - very intuitive interface for administrators.

Cons: N/A

Overall: Board portals are only useful if your directors and senior officers will use them. If they are not easy to navigate and lacking features, then most likely your directors and senior officers are going to continue to rely on paper copies. With Diligent, the majority of our directors and officers quickly requested not to be given printed versions of the board books. Having access to the book on an iPad or tablet allowed them to easily access board materials wherever and whenever they wished. The customer support is available 24/7/365 and is staffed by knowledgeable, friendly teams who can quickly assist the user at all levels.

Recommendations to other buyers: Add-on modules for Board Evaluations and D&O Questionnaires make Diligent Board a complete package.

Comments: Before Diligent I was making 50 paper copies of Executive presentations and materials every month and mailing them to meeting attendees. With Diligent its a one stop deposit of information that is shared with everyone at once and I can download a copy of the final report once it's complete. If a document needs to be edited I can easily go into Diligent and update the materials with a few clicks and everyone has what they need in minutes.
