Deliver Board materials to Directors on IPads!

How to get bulky board books to members of the board of directors has always been a problem, if only for the simple minded logistics of photocopying, collating, binding, and shipping the complicated tomes. Some corporate secretarial functions have turned to online software platforms to expedite delivery (and to benefit from other functions such as calendars, secure e-mail, and document repositories (See my post of Sept. 2, 2009: software for corporate secretaries with 11 references.).

In the latest twist I have heard about a law department uses IPads to deliver the materials. At first the idea seems outlandish, but if you have ever used an IPad to read material and annotate it, you start to see the allure of this medium. I presume the directors turn in their IPad at each meeting.

  1. A surprising number of Board Members already have the devices themselves, the models they buy are web-enabled, and Board members have demonstrated a ready appetite for this kind of approach (even among the otherwise technophobic).
    Delivering Board Reporting, including dynamic, drillable performance reporting, securely, and to a entirely effective lightweight device, doesn’t always require distributing hardware.
