Passageways recently launched an upgrade for the Bank of American Fork’s OnSemble Learning Management System (LMS) to solve four critical business problems. We thought we would share the success they have seen from this consulting project!
Bank of American Fork was spending time and money developing their associates with no way to track the outcome of those courses and trainings. This is particularly true of compliance training. Together, we developed a webinar/seminar tracking module to the LMS that allows the Bank to accurately report to regulators, internal hiring managers, and associates the full picture of training at the Bank.
Passageways today announced a global expansion plan with the opening of two new branch offices in Marlow, UK and Mumbai, India. Leading operations in the UK, Passageways has appointed Paul Stark, and Joy Richard was appointed to lead the India team. The international expansion aims to get Passageways board portal solution, OnBoard, in the hands of leaders in growing markets.
“There are two points on why board composition is critical. One is external,” remarked Tracy Houston, a specialist in board consulting and an executive coach. “It is these external factors that are amplifying the pressure within the boardroom to deliver change. I think the central drivers of turbulence can be attributed to rampant diffusion of technology, increased interdependence across markets, increased shareholder activism, and even frequency of economic shocks,” she continued, “they are driving the demand to retool boards.”
A few years ago, as the term “corporate governance” became more widely used, auditors added corporate governance to their services, with an initial focus on the Audit Committee and the financials and internal controls. Now it is widespread that some auditors have corporate governance consulting divisions that include corporate governance services. Management consultants started calling their services related to compliance and management processes corporate governance consulting, primarily to management. Executive search firms began adding corporate governance services within the last few years, now many include board evaluations in addition to conducting director searches.
Passageways, a global provider of secure, intuitive collaboration solutions, announced the expansion of their OnBoard board portal ecosystem to include apps for iPhones and Windows Surface tablets. The new apps join OnBoard’s dedicated iPad app that thousands of directors around the world already use to prepare for board and committee meetings.
Passageways and Microsoft have deepened their global partnership by launching OnBoard board management software on the Windows Store. OnBoard makes board of director meetings easy, efficient, compliant, and secure.
Working in partnership with Microsoft, OnBoard is the only board portal specifically designed to take full advantage of Windows and Microsoft Surface tablets. OnBoard stands alone as a board meeting solution that seamlessly integrates with Microsoft Office, driving productivity with familiar Office tools our customers already use.
