IronOne Technologies, the Sri Lankan developer of BoardPAC, the sophisticated and secure mobile solution for paperless communication, has made significant advances in Bangladesh, gaining access to government agencies and the military in partnership with GRAM Limited, its recently-appointed partner in that country.
The partnership between the two companies ratified in Colombo paves the way for IronOne to deploy its paperless leadership meeting platform for a new customer segment that requires the solution’s capability to facilitate iPad-based paperless meetings and decision making in a highly secure environment across diverse geographies.
A National Best Quality Software Gold award and Green IT award winner, BoardPAC was originally designed as an enabler of paperless board meetings by providing users the ability to view and approve papers from the ease of their iPads. It has a host of features such as collaboration, meeting management and RSVP, the ability to search and refer to past board papers, as well as to annotate and approve documents and update agendas. The solution meets with the highest security standards including the ISO 27001 certification.
“Government bodies, including branches of the armed forces, demand the right communications technology mix to meet their current and future requirements, with the ultimate prerequisite of a secure channel,” said Lakmini Wijesundera, Founder and CEO of IronOne Technologies. “With BoardPAC, we help them achieve this with the use of encrypted technology over secure networks. Globally, blue-chip companies and financial institutions rely on BoardPAC to enable remote meetings, access archived information and other tools for business leaders to make timely decisions even when they are out of the boardroom. We are pleased to offer these same capabilities to support the Bangladesh Army’s defence and peacekeeping efforts.”
“The military requires the highest level of security enablement to ensure confidentiality, and that strategy discussions are kept in the strictest confidentiality,” said A. S. M. Abdul Motin, Chairman of GRAM Limited. “This is especially important as military personnel are dispersed across various geographic locations and countries, and thus require a solution that is able to guarantee the integrity of information. BoardPAC is part of the solution that will uphold a nation’s territorial integrity against any external threat, including breach of sensitive information. We are pleased to collaborate with IronOne to ensure that we can offer this secure platform to our clients in the defense sectors.”
The partnership agreement between the two companies was signed in Colombo by Motin and Wijesundera in the presence of Ahamed Zainulabdeen, Chief Minister of the Eastern Province.
BoardPAC is now the leading provider of secure Board and Committee meetings across the Asia Pacific region and beyond. It is the trusted platform for many of the top 100 companies across Asia. BoardPAC is further embarking into the military and government domains to provide the highly secure technology these sectors in Bangladesh through its partnership with GRAM Limited, a leading solutions provider in Bangladesh.
