Thomson Reuters Brings Enhanced Corporate Governance Workflow

Thomson Reuters Brings Enhanced Corporate Governance Workflow and
Business Intelligence to the Board in Latest BoardLink Release 
Global Solution Delivers Better Usability and Unique Decision Making
Content and Workflow for Board Members 
LONDON -- (Marketwire) -- 11/09/12 --  Thomson Reuters, the world's
leading source of intelligent information for businesses and
professionals, today announced further strategic enhancements to its
BoardLink service, a secure board workflow solution designed to serve
companies as they operate across borders and involve increasingly
mobile, global boards. 
Thomson Reuters BoardLink has enhanced and adapted its functionality
to include strategic business insight for directors, new corporate
governance features like online voting and a sharply enhanced user
experience. These key developments, shaped in conjunction with
Thomson Reuters board clients, continue to take the solution beyond a
board portal to a secure corporate governance solution that helps
better inform and equip boards in an environment of increased
scrutiny from investors, regulators and the media.  
Now available via the BoardLink iPad application are new best
practice corporate governance features, such as online voting
capabilities, that allow board members to vote on important
activities and agenda items for discussion. These further streamline
workflow process, allowing time-pressed boards to accomplish more
within a single, secure online environment. A sharper, more intuitive
iPad user experience provides greater power and ease of use to
increasingly mobile directors and enhances sign-in process, workflow
functionality and navigation.  
BoardLink now includes a new layer of strategic business insight,
filtered by industry and company, which will help directors'
preparedness and decision making; this will benefit both executive
and non-executive members of boards. New availability of analyst
reports on BoardLink provides board members with strategic business
intelligence on investor perceptions about their own organization as
well as their peers. Additionally, filtered news feeds relevant to
the specific organization, peers and industry can now be delivered
via BoardLink and shared amongst board members.  
Thomson Reuters BoardLink has received SysTrust and SSAE 16 Audit
Report certification which analyzes a service organization's controls
over its system relating to security, availability, processing
integrity, confidentiality, or privacy. This certification process
provides transparency for customers by providing unbiased third-party
independent verification of the controls and operations of the
solution. 
"These latest updates mark BoardLink's transformation from a board
meeting tool to a board governance solution," said Kevin Ritchey,
senior vice president, Governance, Transactions & Legal Risk, Thomson
Reuters. "Board members and executive management should see their
governance enhanced through strategic business insight on their
industry and company, and new workflow tools that will complement
their existing ability to remotely access critical internal
information." 
Thomson Reuters BoardLink iPad app is a powerful tool to support
increasingly mobile board members, along with a secure, Web-based
board portal for Corporate and Company Secretaries to manage Board
workflow. This enables users to communicate and share documents,
create topic-specific workspaces, compile and share board books, and
have access to critical business intelligence and board committee
documents.  
BoardLink is available as part of the Thomson Reuters Accelus suite
of products.
