â€œBoardVantage allows us to provide our geographically dispersed directors with real-time access to the latest board materials,â€ said David Felicio, Esq, Geisinger Chief Legal Officer. â€œBoardVantage is also cost effective. It enables us to assemble, update and distribute board materials much more efficiently. Weâ€™re also reducing printing costs by making materials available online.
