Information can be accessed and found anytime from any device using a powerful search feature. Directors can stay current on board matters when they travel.

Board portals can be set up to allow for granular control over document and folder permissions and a complete audit trail of all activity. They are protected by encryption of data both in transit and in the rest of the device, remote wipe of devices that have been lost, a strong business continuity plan and an uptime guarantee.
