Modern Governance 4.0: Global Compliance Is Now Integrated with the World's Leading Board Platform

Diligent has integrated Blueprint OneWorld's industry-leading entity management application, providing a single source of truth for global compliance

[June 26, 2019 - New York, NY] - With its second major product announcement this week, Diligent today introduced the integration of its trusted entity management technology into the Governance Cloud with new powerful reporting and dashboard functionality. Diligent Entities ™ ,a formerly Blueprint OneWorld, greatly improves transparency and decreases the burden and risks for subsidiary and entity management in a fast-paced, digital environment. This launch positions Diligent as the first of its kind to provide a holistic technology platform that can power modern governance, offering leadership and the board the most effective tools - from a board portal to secure file sharing to entity compliance - accessible in one place.

Business today is global and decentralized, adding layers of regulatory and ethical compliance complexity. Such distributed business interests - with various entities and subsidiaries - are often spread across multiple jurisdictions and subject to increasing regulatory obligations that make reporting and compliance a significant burden.

Diligent Entities addresses these growing risks, core to entity and subsidiary management, and mitigates governance deficits by creating a single source of truth that extends the reach of governance from the scope of a single organization to a group of connected enterprises. With highly-configurable dashboards and extensive, detailed report generation, Diligent Entities offers an efficient way to ensure compliance and deliver global insights for all entities and subsidiaries. Organizational leadership can now more easily identify and respond to new opportunities with a way to better inform decision-making throughout the group structure.

'Modern governance demands an end-to-end suite of secure applications that provide real-time insight across the full scope of a multi-entity, multi-subsidiary or multi-jurisdictional enterprise,' said Brian Stafford, CEO of Diligent. 'Diligent Entities is a key part of our evolving Governance Cloud offering to provide visibility and integrity across the whole of today's complex enterprise environment, helping organizations turn entity governance from a web of complexity into a competitive weapon.'

Diligent Entities was developed from the solid foundation of technology proven by Blueprint OneWorld, the leading global entity and subsidiary management provider, which was acquired by Diligent in 2017. Over the last two years, Diligent has invested significantly in the product, people and processes to modernize Blueprint as a part of its suite of governance solutions and now launch a fully integrated application.

With its collection of integrated, vetted and highly secure governance applications, Diligent supports modern governance practices in the boardroom and beyond, through the executive team and the broader organization, to turn governance into a competitive advantage. Diligent Governance Cloud™ transcends the notion that leaders and board members must settle for piecemeal tools that don't work together.
