Globanet is honored to receive this award for Merge1 and proud to be included in such great company with those shortlisted for this prestigious award.  Winning Banking Technology’s Best Regulations and Compliance System/Services Award is a testament and speaks to Merge1’s preeminence in helping clients meet their regulatory compliance obligations with ease.  Whether for financial services, healthcare, energy, or clients in any other regulated vertical, Merge1 captures text messages, IM, social media, enterprise collaboration and financial messaging communications into any archive.

Sevag Ajemian, CEO at Globanet said: “We are delighted to have been chosen by Banking Technology for this regulatory compliance award from amongst a very competitive field. The award recognizes Merge1 for giving the financial services industry greater control over their workforce’s non-email communications by helping capture, archive and search the conversations that are taking place.  This helps financial services organizations better monitor ‘what’s being said’ by their staff, improving search quality when conducting eDiscovery for litigation or regulatory investigations while ensuring compliance with financial industry-mandated regulations to capture and monitor employee communications.”

In the end, it is not what we say that counts but what are customers say and this award is our customers speaking.  We will continue to provide organizations with the ability to comply with both local and global regulations like SEC 17-a4, MiFID (2), FINRA and many more.”
