Significant time saved by finance team as able to access corporate data directly

DS Smith plc is a leading British-based international packaging business. It is headquartered in London and is a constituent of the FTSE 250 index.


DS Smith needed a global solution that allowed secure 24/7 access to company entity data, such as their Intellectual Property register. In order to improve speed of access and accuracy, other departments had to access areas of the new system so administrators had to have the ability to set read-only rights to individual users.


After considering various other solutions, DS Smith chose Diligent Entities for its functionality and customisation options. Diligent Entities enables per-user access rights, giving the Diligent Entities administrators complete control. The added feature of a full audit trail ensures accountability and visibility, allowing other departments to securely access corporate data directly.


DS Smith are now taking advantage of the flexibility Diligent Entities offers to manage their specific governance and compliance needs. Significant time has been saved by their finance teams as they can now access corporate data, such as account information and their Intellectual Property register, directly.
