Knowa offers trustee boards and professional trustees 12 months free access to their collaborative communications platform in light of the impact of Coronavirus.

Knowa, the collaborative communications platform that delivers efficiencies and structured governance for trustee boards and professional trustee firms is offering a fully supported licence free for 12 months, to help aid the pensions industry with the sudden move to remote operations.

Knowa is a formal communication tool which has been designed for trustees and scheme secretaries to collaborate securely and efficiently with their boards, alongside advisers and scheme employers. Its development was entirely driven by the needs of pension scheme trustees, ensuring it delivers everything a trustee board could possibly need to efficiently govern their schemes.

Trustee boards who are governing through Knowa can benefit from its ability to log a full audit trail of activity and decisions made over the lifetime of the board. Even more importantly, especially in today’s remote working world, all communications are made and logged within a secure platform which minimises any cyber security risks.

Knowa’s fully supported licence that trustee boards and professional trustee can access free for 12 months offers one platform in which all your boards can be managed, enabling information flow through a simple structure. It offers clear visibility with all conversations and documents automatically saved to the correct place and allows trustee boards to take back control, giving them the time to focus on key strategic issues.

Will Henderson, Co-founder of Knowa said:

“The outbreak of Coronavirus and its continuous spreading across the world has quickly forced the pensions industry to move to remote working operations, at a time when they need to be working more collaboratively than ever before. We understand the needs and requirements of trustee boards having to complete operations efficiently and to maintain a full audit trail, especially at this important time. This is why we are offering free access to our communications tool with a fully supported licence for 12 months.”

Amédée Levillan, Co-founder of Knowa adds:

“Trustee board members are already stretched, losing a lot of their time to administration and processes, what they need is a tool that gives them the time and headspace to focus on activities that have a greater impact, most importantly in times such as these right now. Having information flow across trustee boards through a tool that enables secure and efficient communication and provides continuity will resolve the issues by bringing all members together and offering full transparency.”
