PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- 2010 was a great year for BoardEffect but the growth in 2011 has been unprecedented. During the first half of the year alone, BoardEffect doubled its client base. Today, over 250 organizations representing a total of 11,500 users worldwide are actively using BoardEffect and positively impacting their governance process.
BoardEffect's growth this year is also characterized by its extended reach beyond national borders. In addition to Australia and Bermuda, the portal now has a presence in Canada and in South Africa. "We are delighted that international organizations are embracing e-governance and specifically BoardEffect," said Thomas Rottler, CEO at BoardEffect, Inc.
BoardEffect's expansion is not only geographical, but also indicated by the increased diversity in clients. The company continues to serve organizations in various industries; including healthcare, higher education, and retirement communities, but in 2011 has seen a rise in the number of foundations. The latter could be a result of BoardEffect's partnership with The Council on Foundations which enables council members to purchase the portal at a discounted rate. Our partners have been instrumental in impacting our growth," said Rottler. Other institutional partners include BoardSource, The Governance Institute, and Australia-based, Matrix on Board.
Thomas Rottler, CEO at BoardEffect, Inc. is thrilled by this year's accomplishments: "Boards of directors around the world are recognizing the benefits of e-governance and we are honored that they are choosing BoardEffect to help them reach their governance goals."
