Digest Builder drastically reduces the time it takes to create and distribute executive updates. Like most EAs, you likely spend hours every week pulling together a report that details upcoming meetings, travel plans, and important deadlines for the executive you support. Base’s Digest Builder creates beautiful executive updates in minutes, giving you time back in your day to focus on more strategic work.
