Halcyon Agri chooses the Diligent Boardbooks to enhance board communications
Hong Kong – 25 February 2015 – Diligent (NZX: DIL) (http://www.boardbooks.com/), provider of the world’s most widely used board portal, has announced that Halcyon Agri Corporation Limited, a global leader in natural rubber production and supply chain management, has adopted the Software-as-a-Service-based Diligent Boardbooks® solution to optimise the production and delivery of its board materials.
Headquartered in Singapore, Halcyon Agri sources, produces, markets and distributes natural rubber products to an extensive, international customer base, including most of the world’s largest tire manufacturers. Although its directors are based in Singapore, the business has extensive manufacturing operations throughout Southeast Asia and a global distribution network, with sales offices and logistics assets in China, Europe and the United States.
“Halcyon Agri now has a reliable board portal solution that raises the bar for flexibility, security and efficiency of board communications,” said Mr. Pascal Demierre, Executive Director of Halcyon Agri. “The Diligent Boardbooks solution has transformed the way our directors access, review and approve board documents and reports. With many of our board members constantly on the move, having such a secure and easy-to-use digital platform provides more effective board-level communications before, during and after meetings. Moving to a paperless system has also had the added benefits of reducing printing costs, supporting our sustainability goals, as well as releasing internal administrative and IT capacity.”
The Diligent Boardbooks solution provides a simple way for company directors to securely receive and review board materials on their tablet, device, PC or desktop, whether online or offline. It enables more efficient board communications and management. With all the information they need at their fingertips, board members can better spend their time collaborating and making crucial business decisions.
“We are delighted to be working with Halcyon Agri,” said Al Percival, Managing Director of APAC for Diligent. “Through the Diligent Boardbooks solution, Halcyon Agri directors will be able to spend more time focusing on the board papers, and less time dealing with bulky board packs and waiting for courier deliveries. The products and services we provide are designed around the needs of our customers and their directors. To achieve this, we provide comprehensive on-site training and 24-7, award-winning concierge-level support, and continue to invest in developing our software technology.”
