How secure is the iDelegate app?

iDelegate is built with Laravel, easily the best of the latest generation of web frameworks based on the PHP language. Laravel is often the recommended PHP framework for mission-critical applications. It makes PHP applications secure through robust authentication and input validation and protects them against many serious security risks such as SQL injection, cross-site request forgery and cross-site scripting.

Delegation of Authority framework – Why implement one at all?

A staggering number of organisations do not have a robust Delegation of Authority framework in place. This puts them at a considerable financial, operational and legal risk. It is certainly wrong to think that only large organisations require a DOA framework. In fact, any organisation employing more than one person would benefit from clearly delineating limits of authority for each individual.
This article lists just 3 very compelling reasons to make sure that your organisation has a robust Delegation of Authority framework in place as soon as possible.

What are iDelegate installation options?

Most organisations have rules on how they approach software installation and use. iDelegate is very flexible in how it can be configured and run. Major options include running it on our servers, on client servers, or meeting halfway.

Delegation of Authority software – What are its advantages?

In some organisations delegations of authority are issued by hand once a year. In many more they are issued on appointment (perhaps as part of the job description) and never updated again. In even greater number of organisations they are not issued at all. Clearly, this can put organisations and their Directors at considerable financial and legal risk.
Using Delegation of Authority software can help reducing these financial and legal risks by fostering compliance and accountability at all levels of the organisation.
