One of the themes that companies have started to grapple with is that employees increasingly bring their own devices (BYOD) to work and expect them to be able to use them to get work done. This means that companies have to be agile in order to support lots of different devices (iPhones, iPads, Android devices) connecting to their networks and resources.
While this is a relatively new phenomenon for company employees, board members have always used their own devices to manage communications with their boards, management and other directors. As board members become more and more technologically savvy, allowing them to use their devices to engage is a way to maximize the effectiveness of the entire board.
At iBoardrooms, we have build software for boards of directors to ensure that members can use their own devices, whether mobile, tablet or desktop, Mac, PC, iOS or Android to get the information they need, when they need it.
