iDelegate's benefits in seven words
What iDelegate can bring you
Forget about pen and paper, inconsistent versions, long cascade times and records of delegations going missing. iDelegate has been designed from the ground up to make any Delegation of Authority implementation a breeze. It can improve decision-making clarity and boost organisational performance at all levels of your organisation.
Built on best practice for Good Governance. Covers both financial and non-financial authorities, stakeholder participation requirements and is easily accessible by all employees.
Supercharge your delegation process without reinventing the wheel. Let your organisation benefit from global expertise to delegate authorities and powers successfully and efficiently.
Uncluttered interface makes iDelegate very intuitive to use and administer. We expect that iDelegate will be run by non-IT users. Anybody should be able to set up and update the system.
Single source of truth centrally set, controlled and validated – easy to administer and keep up-to-date. Assign spot delegations as needed for projects or special assignments.
Perfect visibility into every single delegation. Permanent record of individual accountability acceptance for risk reduction, performance management, internal control, audit or legal reasons.
Delegations are delivered to individuals in real time through email and online dashboard. Grant, recall, reassign, increase or decrease delegated powers with immediate effect.
Delegating Authority Made Easy
If you have a Delegation of Authority policy in place but still use pen and paper or other nonintegrated system to manage your delegation process, iDelegate will make it much faster, smoother and more efficient. If you have no such system at all, iDelegate will place you together with the best in class from the get-go.

Things that matter
iDelegate is built on the latest technologies to ensure data security, uninterrupted service and no need for maintenance on the client side. It requires no IT experience to administer.
Being a web app, iDelegate is completely platform independent. It can be accessed through pretty much any device with a web browser, be it a personal computer, a tablet or a smartphone. All mainstream operating systems such as Windows, Mac OS, iOS and Linux are supported, as are major browsers such as Chrome, Edge, Safari and Firefox.
In short, if your device can access the Internet, it can access iDelegate.
Each iDelegate client installation is hosted on a separate server in a geographic location of your choice. Because iDelegate hosting is not shared, all of its server resources are 100% dedicated to you, and you alone. And because iDelegate is not a multi-tenant application, your installation is completely isolated so you do not need to worry about the risk of your data being commingled with somebody else’s.
Available geographic locations include Singapore in Asia; Amsterdam, Frankfurt or London in Europe; Bangalore in India; and New York, San Francisco or Toronto in North America.
The iDelegate app is multilayered to keep the application itself completely separate from any user or delegation data it displays. This means that, while the application code is proprietary to iDelegate, the data is yours and yours alone. iDelegate will not use it in any way other than for its intended purpose.
It should be possible to host the database on your own servers, if you prefer. Currently, iDelegate supports four databases: MySQL 5.6+, PostgreSQL 9.4+, SQLite 3.8.8+ and SQL Server 2017+.
iDelegate is built with Laravel, easily the best of the latest generation of web frameworks based on the PHP language. PHP has been around for a while and extensively used in development of many well known sites including Facebook, Wordpress and Wikipedia. Laravel makes PHP applications secure through robust authentication and protecting them against many serious security risks such as SQL injection, cross-site request forgery and cross-site scripting.
iDelegate can talk to other systems too. Your users will be able to authenticate with OAuth providers such as Azure, G Suite and many others for a seamless single sign-on experience.
iDelegate is perfect for
Internal Delegations of Authority | External Delegations of Power of Attorney | Standing and/or Ad hoc Committee Charters | Schemes of Delegation | Policies which need to be individually assigned
iDelegate is designed to be consulted on the go
What you see is what you need

iDelegate supports your risk management efforts
iDelegate saves time
The iDelegate app appears simple in what it does because a lot of thought and effort has been invested into making it fit for its unique purpose. From technology stack to user interface, iDelegate is built on first hand experience of needing – and not having – a straightforward delegation app just like this.
