Actiance is privately-held with funding provided by Credit Suisse, JK&B Capital, Scale Venture Partners, and Sutter Hill Ventures. The company also works closely with regulators including the SEC (News - Alert), FINRA, IIROC, and the PRA and FCA. Recently, the company has initiated new Technology Partner Program, which empowers the partners to ensure industry leading compliance for their applications.
Actiance's partnerships with enterprise platforms like Cisco (News - Alert), EMC, IBM, and Microsoft; and with social networks like LinkedIn, will enable the new partnership program to build stronger connections with consumers using social platforms.
"As organizations make the transition, they need to ensure they still meet their compliance and eDiscovery requirements, not just for email, but for all their critical business communications,” said Jim Petty, vice president of partnerships and corporate development at Actiance. “The Actiance Technology Partner Program helps our partners assure their customers that new technologies can be used in a way that allows their workforce to be collaborative and social while still meeting the most stringent governance requirements and regulatory mandates."
The partnership program is designed to help its members outspread the reach of their solutions into new markets and to provide joint-solutions that broadly address customers' business and regulatory compliance tasks. By being part of this program, partners can integrate with the Actiance Governance Platform, export data to the platform, or import data from Actiance's products: Vantage, Socialite, and Alcatraz.
Bazaarvoice, Exterro, HNW, and PeopleLinx are some of the new companies that joined the Actiance Technology Partner Program recently.
Alan Godfrey, executive vice president of strategic partnerships at Bazaarvoice, said, "Through our collaboration with Actiance, our clients in highly-regulated markets can confidently address their legal and regulatory requirements and open the door to creating stronger connections with consumers using social platforms to discover, explore and ultimately make an online or offline purchase."
Actiance is based in Silicon Valley and operates offices in North America, the United Kingdom, and India.
