PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- 2012 was a year of growth for BoardEffect. Over 640 organizations, and 1,400 boards representing about 38,000 board members worldwide, are now using the online board portal and enhancing their governance process.
These numbers are twice what they were last year- an augmentation which can be accounted for by the increased recognition that online board portals have the ability to render boards more productive and more efficient. "The board portal industry is expanding and we are honored that organizations- large and small, are selecting BoardEffect as their portal of choice," said Thomas Rottler, CEO at BoardEffect, Inc.
2013 started on a strong note for BoardEffect. On the first week of January, a new version of the iPad app was released. This superior version will tremendously improve the user's experience, making crucial information available at their fingertips. "We pride ourselves in providing a solution that facilitates the work of the board," added Rottler.
BoardEffect® is a 100% web-based, secure portal designed to support best practices in governance. From providing board meeting materials in an electronic format and accessible through BoardEffect's free iPad app, to meeting scheduling, to facilitating online deliberation and voting, BoardEffect® streamlines governance workflow and reduces the burden of managing the board's workload.
