What does the Directors Desk Do Best?

The goal of the Nasdaq Directors Desk team is to create an environment conducive for smooth board meeting management.

Additionally, the directors desk board portal is a quality solution for the following:

Highly effective meetings 

Preparatory processes and directors’ meetings themselves often depend on the availability of relevant resources. Users with open access to data prepare for negotiations faster and are more productive.

Protection of data exchange confidentiality

The openness of information on the platform to authorized users does not compromise security. Nasdaq’s control options allow directors to manage and monitor document distribution.

Attendance at remote meetings 

Remote persons are fully involved in discussions. Built-in communication and collaboration tools allow boards to continue working in any environment.

Consolidated data storage 

Managers configure data storage to meet corporate governance standards. In addition, it is easy and quick to find a specific document, which is important during meetings.
