DiliTrust and iMeetingRoom Join Forces to Become the Number 1 Corporate Governance Solutions Provider in Italy

Milan, Italy, 27 March, 2019 – DiliTrust and iMeetingRoom have combined their forces to provide world-class corporate governance solutions in Italy. This strategic combination marks the advent of a new Italian market leader.

DiliTrust assists boards, legal and financial departments of companies of all sizes in the fine control of their corporate governance and in the secure sharing of their most sensitive data. Among the company’s range of solutions, DiliTrust Exec is a board portal designed to digitalise board and executive committee meetings securely. DiliTrust Governance, another flagship solution, enables legal departments to centralise and monitor the entirety of the data related to the corporate and legal organisation of their group, collaboratively. DiliTrust entered the Italian corporate governance market in 2017. Its local subsidiary, based in Milan, is headed by Fabrizio Gallotti and already serves major clients.

iMeetingRoom is a leading Italian solution which pioneered the digitalisation of private corporate governance in the country. iMeetingRoom was developed as a business line of Dromedian, an IT solutions provider specialised in the optimisation of enterprise processes. Like DiliTrust Exec, iMeetingRoom simplifies the processes of organising, accessing and securely storing board meetings documents. It is currently used by the most prestigious companies operating in Banking, Financial, Insurance and Industrial sectors.

DiliTrust iMeetingRoom, jointly owned by DiliTrust and Dromedian, will provide enhanced service to iMeetingRoom clients and extend its offering with the full range of DiliTrust products. DiliTrust iMeetingRoom’s very European-centric management of privacy and data security will remain at the core of its strategy.

Yves Garagnon, CEO of DiliTrust, comments: “This alliance is a great opportunity for all stakeholders involved. By combining our talents and resources, we are able to offer enriched solutions to fully address the challenges of digitalisation in the board room. In addition, iMeetingRoom will strengthen our customer coverage and go-to-market capabilities in a major European market, consistent with our strategy of creating an international leader in the field of corporate governance solutions.”

Adriano Valente, CEO of Dromedian, adds: “This strategic union will benefit our entire client base, with an extended product offering supported by a widely recognised Research & Development team and multilingual 24/7 Customer Service.”
