SAN MATEO, Calif., July 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today, Theta Lake, Inc., the leader in compliance for video and audio communication, announces two new partnerships and the immediate availability of two new product integrations for marketing and personalized sales video compliance with Vidyard and Videolicious. The new capabilities and partnerships aim to solve the adoption gap for video sales and marketing in regulated industries.
According to a survey conducted by Wyzowl, 85 percent of people want brands to generate more video, giving support to the positive ROI that 78 percent of organizations experience with video marketing solutions. Despite the compelling reasons for businesses to use personalized sales and marketing video technologies, regulatory constraints have meant slower adoption of video marketing and its many benefits in verticals such as financial services.
The adoption barrier stems from regulatory guidelines including those from FCA, FDA, FFIEC, FINRA, and the FTC. These regulations and guidelines require companies to review, capture, and retain communications to ensure they have fair and proper disclaimers and disclosures while adhering to advertising and promotion standards. Any increase in video sales and marketing usage enlarges the burden on compliance teams to monitor, address risks, and report on activity in video communication.
According to the Thomson Reuters Cost of Compliance 2018 survey, 74 percent of financial firms surveyed expect an increase in time spent on managing regulatory risk. That same survey report found that conduct risk and improving surveillance will be a top focus for compliance teams. With that in mind, video faces increasing adoption obstacles from compliance in regulated verticals such as banking, insurance, wealth management, healthcare and pharmaceuticals.

“Compliance is critical to protect consumers, increase brand trust, and reduce risk overall, but it shouldn’t cripple the business and prevent digital innovation,” said Devin Redmond, CEO & Co-founder, Theta Lake, Inc. “Video in sales and marketing is a proven key driver for business growth, and saying ‘no’ to it doesn’t make sense. Unfortunately, saying ‘yes,’ and then using manual compliance review can ruin the video marketing and sales opportunity. Manual approaches cannot process video quickly enough while they simultaneously hurt business margin by throwing ever increasing bodies at review tasks. The right way to solve this is with good RegTech that can increase scale, reduce risk, and reduce costs for compliance review. Theta Lake does this by integrating compliance AI into great video sales and marketing products like Videolicious and Vidyard to help compliance keep pace with the business and reduce the cost of compliance.”
“Vidyard’s word class technology tracks and measures the irrefutable benefits of video our business customers create and distribute with our platform,” said Kevin O’Brien, VP of Business Development, Vidyard. “Our partnership with Theta Lake enables us to deliver tremendous value to customers operating in regulated industries. This integration with the Theta Lake solution provides companies with compliance requirements with a solution to also leverage the same benefits with video, while efficiently providing oversight across an organization at scale.”
“Personalized video between representatives of a business and their clients is one of the most compelling communication channels available, and we have over 4,000,000 users to prove it,” said Matt Singer, CEO and Co-Founder of Videolicious. “Sales Reps, Agents, Advisors and Marketers in highly regulated industries are demanding technologies that enable them to be more effective and engaging with prospects and customers, but compliance is not comfortable with the additional organizational risk. Our solution, when integrated with Theta Lake’s compliance suite enables us to address the demand. We are excited to unlock the true potential of personalized video for regulated businesses with this partnership.”
