MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC--(Marketwire - Jan. 14, 2013) - Leading Boards, a company providing online board portals and governance tools for boards of directors and their committees, is proud to announce that two Quebec mining companies have adopted their solutions. Consequently, the boards of directors of Argex Titane Inc. and St-Georges Platinum & Base Metal Ltd. are using Leading Boards' tools to improve the security, efficiency and governance of their boards and audit committees.
Administrators can now use their computers or iPad tablets to consult, at any time and from anywhere, the documents they'll need for their meetings. This includes meeting agendas and minutes. They also have access to archives containing information from prior meetings and a documentation centre storing the company's policies, financial statements, etc.
What's more, both organizations are helping administrators fulfill their duties with greater efficiency by offering them a secure and virtual workspace, stocked with all the information needed for their meetings. Since administrators live in different countries and travel frequently, Leading boards' solution also makes the sharing of board-related documents more secure.
"All discussions and collaborations are highly secure, and we no longer need to print documents or send them by email or messenger," explains Mark Billings, Chief Financial Officer at Argex and St-Georges. "These tools also enable our administrators to work more quickly and more efficiently during meetings."
Leading Boards' solutions contribute to a current trend among companies to boost their productivity through the use of mobile technologies, which continue to grow in number. The tools created by Leading Boards will save companies money. According to the President of Leading Boards, Jean-Marc Félio, expenses related to courier services and the handling of documents for board and committee meetings average more than $15,000 a year for a committee of seven persons. From this point of view, he affirms, "Leading Boards' paperless solutions are not an expense, but rather a high-performance investment."
"Leading Boards' tools help administrators and committee members work, collaborate and prepare for meetings, regardless of time and location," states Robert Guilbault, Chairman of the Board of Directors, Argex Titane. "These tools are bilingual, easy to use and iPad accessible. Leading Boards was the natural solution for our needs, and they provide unparalleled training and support too."
Similarly, Frank Dumas, President & CEO of St-Georges, noted that because his company is listed on the stock exchange, "we are subject to very strict standards for accountability, governance and disclosure. Our administrators need the best tools to make sure that we meet those standards."
The decision-makers at Argex intend to expand use of Leading Boards' tools to their governance committee and financing work group.
