New York State School Boards Association Endorses BoardDocs

The State Association Recommends Implementing Paperless Meeting Solutions, Which Can Be Remarkably Wise Investments for School Districts

ATLANTA (May 11, 2011) — Emerald Data Solutions™, Inc., the eGovernance pioneer and developer of BoardDocs® paperless meeting solutions, today announced a new partnership with the New York State School Boards Association (NYSSBA), an organization that has served as the statewide voice of over 700 boards of education for more than 100 years.

BoardDocs was selected for their economical and flexible eAgenda technology that fully supports organizational governance and administration needs. BoardDocs services are proven to save many organizations tens of thousands of dollars annually. User organizations also see a dramatic increase in their board’s effectiveness and in their administrative time-of-staff productivity, as well as improved district communications.

“Few products are as easy-to-use as BoardDocs,” said James Page, NYSSBA Director of Information Technology and Member Services. “If your leadership team wants more efficient meetings, this product is for you.”

Emerald Data offers two powerful and easy-to-use eGovernance solutions: BoardDocs Pro and the all new BoardDocs LT. Both products uniquely feature cloud-based technology, are virtually turn-key and are fully supported on most mobile devices, including the Apple® iPad™. Plus, only BoardDocs includes dedicated project management, on-site training and US-based, 7 x 24 technical support with every subscription.

"We are thrilled that after an extensive review of available paperless agenda solutions, the NYSSBA selected BoardDocs as a partner,” said BoardDocs President and Creator, Ari Ioannides. “Together we will provide additional savings for the 28 school districts currently using BoardDocs and extend open governance and efficiency throughout New York."

The NYSSBA joins a growing list of partners that have selected BoardDocs eGoverance technology, including CNYRIC, CCLC, DSBA, FSBA, MABE, MSBA, OSBA, PSBA, VSBA, WSSDA and WVSBA. BoardDocs has been used successfully to manage over 40,000 meetings to date.
