PRESS RELEASE

DURHAM, N.C., Aug 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — ArchiveSocial, the leading provider of public records and archiving software for government agencies, law enforcement officials, and educational organizations announced today that it has merged with Monsido, a leader in web governance and accessibility solutions that enhance user experience. The transaction follows the completion of ArchiveSocial’s previously announced acquisition of NextRequest, a leading provider of automation and workflow technology that simplifies how government agencies manage and reduce the risk associated with public records requests.

Communicators are under increasing pressure to adopt new policies and practices to ensure their digital content is compliant with complex regulations, including public records and retention laws, accessibility standards, and data privacy. The combination of these three solutions create a comprehensive platform to help organizations communicate openly and effectively across their social channels and websites.

Monsido co-founder Jannik Grøntved explains, “While websites remain integral to an organization’s digital strategy, social media provides a highly complimentary platform for expanding reach. ArchiveSocial has powerful digital archiving solutions, and we are excited to expand our ability to support marketing and communication professionals with tools to achieve digital compliance, wherever they communicate with their users.”

The combined software-as-a-service platform will eliminate digital compliance barriers and focus the new company’s comprehensive suite of solutions on helping organizations communicate securely, openly and effectively.

“We’re on a shared mission to strengthen trust in digital communication, and we’re thrilled about the opportunities this merger provides,” said Ray Carey, CEO of ArchiveSocial. “The past year and a half illustrated how critical digital communication and experiences are. Our complimentary solutions and combined industry strengths will allow us to drive the market’s evolution with a purpose-built platform that transforms how organizations engage with their communities.”

The newly formed company is growing and hiring remote and in-office employees centered around its offices in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, and Denmark. Financial terms of the merger are not being disclosed.
