The Wall Street Journal writes the Directors Desk board portal iPad app helps "board members keep on top of their duties both in the board room and on the go using the popular device".

Directors Desk is one of the world’s first and leading secure board portals and trusted by Fortune 500 companies, hospitals, universities, international corporations, and startups since 2004.

NASDAQ OMX acquired Directors Desk in 2007 and added its breadth of resources to the secure, confidential online board book communication platform.

Since its founding and acquisition, our team has evolved the secure board portal market with such boardroom-essential features as:

  • online surveys and questionnaires
  • voting capabilities with digital signature overlays
  • European Union server installation
  • Enterprise Management System
  • Between-meeting secure confidential communication tools

Directors Desk continued to innovate the board book experience when it released its latest milestone in summer of 2011: Directors Desk HD Board Portal App for iPad, available for download on the Apple App Store©.

Directors Desk board portal representatives are ready to help you learn more about the online board book that so many board members and corporate secretaries trust with their business-critical data.
