Business Manager Lisa Marquez at Miami Area Unified School District, BoardDocs 2,000th subscriber, had this to say: "Our district's decision to adopt BoardDocs showed many positive views. BoardDocs will increase the amount of time board members have to review the agenda, enabling them to better prepare for meetings. Electronic distribution not only saves time and resources, but it also provides unprecedented public access via our website to agenda items and other board-related information."

BoardDocs History

Emerald Data Solutions has provided technology solutions since 1989. In the late 1990’s, the Company had the foresight to move from providing project based, IT solutions to a then-radical, SAAS model. This strategic change led to the development of BoardDocs®, a revolutionary board management (paperless meeting) solution, first developed in 2000. Currently, the Company is is exclusively dedicated to the development and delivery of its fifth-generation, community-defined BoardDocs services.

Of special note, Emerald Data Solutions has been 100% virtual since 2005. At that time, the move from a traditional workplace to a cloud-based footprint where all employees work from home was groundbreaking. As evidenced by the Company's continued growth, this operational model has proven remarkably successful and now serves as an example that other companies often emulate.

Our current staff includes former technology directors, former board clerks, former Fortune 500 executive trainers, top developers and certified support analysts. We have trained thousands of board members and administrators, so we understand how governing bodies operate and how board meeting materials are created, managed and distributed.
