“All New BoardDocs” Launches At NSBA T + L

The Next Generation of BoardDocs Delivers the Most Advanced Paperless Agenda Technology Available

DENVER (Oct. 28, 2009) — Emerald Data Solutions™, Inc., the market leader and pioneer of eGovernance, set a new industry standard today with the release of the latest version of BoardDocs. This revolutionary BoardDocs system, unveiled at the NSBA Technology + Learning Conference in Denver, recognizes the power of the individual to drive and customize their on-line experience through Web 2.0 technology. The remarkably powerful, easy-to-use solution will enable organizations to maximize the effectiveness of their board meetings while dramatically increasing productivity and saving thousands of dollars annually.

The all new service builds on the ground-breaking technology introduced earlier this year in the “lighter” version, called BoardDocs LT, and includes many new features requested by the BoardDocs subscriber community. Emerald Data literally pushed the limits of existing technology to develop a lightning-fast solution, fronted by an intuitive, user-friendly interface that rivals anything yet developed for the Web. This interface introduces a new standard of subscriber interaction and customization that’s radically superior to the competition and includes a robust feature set that improves the way board meetings are managed, increases transparency and provides an overall richer user experience.

“With BoardDocs LT, we began to see the power of Web 2.0 and wanted to extend that power to next evolution of BoardDocs. We started by asking our clients what they wanted in a governance solution, and then utilized cutting-edge technologies to deliver a solution that would exceed their expectations,” said BoardDocs President and Chief Architect Aristides Ioannides. “Unlike most new software that runs slower on existing hardware, we also set out to dramatically improve performance. Our development team achieved this by reducing the amount of traffic that moves over the Internet. Using powerful servers and cutting-edge Web 2.0 technology, we were able to provide a rich, application-like solution in a browser that is designed to run much faster than any other paperless agenda solution.”

With the all new BoardDocs, any browser can be selected to deliver the rich, flexible and responsive user interface. Together with Web 2.0, BoardDocs’ sophisticated technology moves the power of document management away from the IT department and directly into the hands of the individual that actually creates and manages the documents. Behind the scenes, the new technology enables BoardDocs to communicate with other applications to share real time information and collaborate intelligently. In short, the all new BoardDocs allows users to do more, with unprecedented ease, speed and fewer resources than ever before!

New features include advanced meeting control, enhanced annotation capabilities, improved work-flow processes, goal tracking and management, integrated media player functionality and delegated policy administration, among many others. The Web-centric solution also provides a radically scalable platform to easily accommodate future enhancements. Plus, BoardDocs supports every implementation with dedicated project management, unsurpassed on-site training and 7 x 24, US-based technical support, included with every subscription.

BoardDocs was developed specifically for school boards, local governments, and other private and public boards to alleviate the enormous task of assembling, printing, distributing and revising agenda items and policies. BoardDocs unique, state-of-the-art solutions increase transparency in governance, save organizations time and money, and have a positive effect on the environment.

BoardDocs is the only eGovernance solution to use advanced Web 2.0 Technology to reinvent agenda creation and meeting management.
