Paperless and highly secure, the solution DiliTrust Exec provides an innovative response to the current challenges faced by directors and corporate secretaries in terms of corporate governance. “The amount of information that goes into these board packs is enormous and it was extremely time-consuming collating the packs, comments Moira Van Der Westhuizen.“The company is working on endeavours to protect the environment and saving on printing is definitely a start.” She added: “Another very important aspect of using DilTrust Exec centres around its data security, as we are no longer printing our packs or emailing them.”
