For the second year in a row, IntegriShield has been named among the LeadsCouncil’s top compliance companies in education. This honor recognizes IntegriShield’s advanced technology and its ability to simplify workflow, streamline remediation, and track brand recognition across the web.

 

“Navigating the lead generation industry can be a challenging task for any company and adding in the rigorous compliance regulations can be extremely taxing,” said Michael Ferree, Director of the LeadsCouncil. “It’s an honor to recognize companies like IntegriShield that have made the commitment to help our industry maintain consistent and compliant messaging. The LEADER Awards provide a distinct direction for our members as to who they should work with, and I think that is great thing.”

 

“Our customers want more and are looking for custom solutions and accuracy without sacrificing their budgets. Most come to us having tried other systems and stay for the granular approach and cost savings,” said Gayla Huber, IntegriShield president. Huber takes pride in her team’s unmatched ability to follow compliance infractions until they are resolved. “We’re not afraid to go the extra mile,” Huber says. “Compliance products on the market often identify the issue or violation for customers, but fail to provide the solution. It’s an honor to have our technology recognized for giving clients unprecedented access and transparency into their brand’s web presence.”

 

Increased scrutiny from regulatory bodies has made marketing compliance a hot topic throughout several industries. As a recognized trailblazer in the sector, LeadsCouncil invited IntegriShield to speak during its annual Performance Marketing Conference, LeadsCon Las Vegas, to help further educate businesses and mitigate risks. Huber will be joined by the Council of Better Business Bureaus, Inc to share best practice methods when dealing with self-regulation and unauthorized landing pages. “We are excited for these opportunities to form strategic partnerships and help businesses protect their reputation and bottom line,” said Huber.

“I’m excited for the opportunity to help clients take a new look at compliance because not everyone is using the technology in the same way,” said Huber. Formerly the Client Services Director of Gragg Advertising, Huber brings over a decade of expertise assisting and advising clients in day-to-day challenges related to advertising, admissions, accreditation and data analytics.

 

“Already we’ve seen clients save 18 percent in staffing by using our full-service solution,” said Huber.

Before IntegriShield launched, I was working behind the scenes to help develop the company’s current system which keeps our clients in good hands.”

 

In her new role Huber continues to provide compliance expertise as an industry contributor to various national publications and offers a free webinar series through IntegriShield.com.

IntegriShield Honored with Stevie® Award for 2015 Startup of the Year

 

 

Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) July 14, 2015

IntegriShield was presented with a Bronze Stevie Award in the Startup of the Year category by the American Business Awards. Led by President Jennifer Flood, IntegriShield continues to position itself and its clients for remarkable growth using advanced marketing compliance technology.

 

“It’s an honor to have our innovation recognized because we take pride in being able to simplify workflow and keep clients compliant with evolving industry regulations,” said Flood. More than 3,300 award nominations were submitted from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry. This awards spotlights IntegriShield’s overall innovation in successful efforts to shield clients from compliance missteps.

IntegriShield ABA Award

“We are extremely impressed with the quality of the entries we received this year. The competition was intense and every organization that won should be proud,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards.

 

As higher education and financial service industries face increased scrutiny and government regulation, IntegriShield’s compliance monitoring technology helps clients protect reputations and their bottom line. Since IntegriShield launched in 2012 clients have avoided over 14 thousand compliance infractions.

 

“More companies are realizing the necessity of compliance monitoring because delegating your marketing to an outside entity doesn’t relieve you of responsibility,” said Flood. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is busy monitoring online advertising for violations of truth-in-advertising laws. If false or misleading ads are found then the FTC may subject a company to devastating fines or freeze company and personal assets. “Your company is liable for what others do on your behalf and we make it our mission to proactively identify and remediate these infractions.”

IntegriShield Awarded for Compliance Monitoring Security

Discover the Three-Step Technology Protecting Businesses

 

Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) December 09, 2014

 

Compliance Monitoring SoftwareIntegriShield, a compliance company, has been honored by the Kansas City Business Journal with a 2014 ImpacT Award for technology security. This recognition pulls back the curtain on a looming issue—third-party misrepresentation. Far too many companies are unaware of the growing threat to marketing initiatives caused by websites, blogs and social media. Essentially your business is at risk, but are you doing enough to remain protected and compliant in your industry?

 

“The costs of fines and lawsuits have been known to accumulate in the multi-millions, but our Compliance Monitoring technology works to alleviate that worry for business owners,” said IntegriShield President Jennifer Flood. “Enhancing security is our mission because any misrepresentation to a client’s business can be damaging to the company’s reputation and bottom line.”

 

Designed to protect companies advertising efforts, IntegriShield monitors, tracks and enforces regulation to ensure consistent and compliant messaging.

  3. Analyze real-time data consistently to maintain control of your advertising

 

In addition to annual business planning, Flood encourages clients to re-evaluate their 2015 compliance plans.

It’s a position similar to wishing you had auto insurance after you get into an accident—it’s too late,” said Flood. “It’s an honor to have our technology recognized, but at the end of the day it’s even more rewarding to know the impact and success we have on helping our clients thrive.”

IntegriShield Improves Graduate Placement Programs

 

Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) July 08, 2014

 

IntegriShield, a Kansas City-based compliance company, is altering the landscape of higher education’s graduate placement reporting. Recent regulation has made career schools more accountable for providing programs that place a graduate into his or her field of study within a required time-frame. Collecting this graduate data has been a challenge for some schools—until now. Using proprietary reporting technology, IntegriShield has achieved a contact success rate at upwards of 80% for its clients.

 

“New regulation is forecasted for the education industry and it is imperative that institutions are prepared. As an unbiased third-party we take pride in helping to protect a client’s program integrity,” said President Jennifer Flood. IntegriShield advises departments of Career Services to incorporate exit surveys and secure permission to contact employers to its list of responsibilities, which commonly include resume building, mock interviews and externships. “We track down graduates and keep in constant contact with employers. This enables us to gather more accurate career placement statistics for annual reporting,” said Flood.

Institutions are required to annually report to several organizations, including the Department of Education, various accrediting bodies, and state boards which monitor violations of federal regulation—such as Gainful Employment. Inaccuracies and faulty reporting have been known to impose costly fines and in some instances cost an institution its accreditation status.

 

“It is not surprising to see many institutions do not have the adequate time or resources to successfully execute graduate placement reporting,” said Flood. “Our process is to assist Career Services with Employment Verification for any graduate class—delivering timely and accurate results. IntegriShield empowers institutions to face compliance regulation with confidence.”

IntegriShield Enforces Infringement Detection

 

KANSAS CITY, MO, (PRNewswire) January 30, 2014

 

IntegriShield, a technology based compliance company, enforces infringement detection and remediation on its client’s behalf. Catering to clients across North America, IntegriShield’s proprietary technology readily identifies instances of illegal and incorrect use of a client’s copyrighted or trademarked material over the internet.

 

“Far too many companies are unaware of the growing threat of infringement caused by websites, blogs and social media,” said IntegriShield Managing Director Jennifer Flood. “Companies that invest each year creating and managing their brand image should be aware of how others are using it.”

Looking back on the winter holidays, many companies were unknowingly victimized and reacted too late. In December 2013 the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (I.C.E.) released a report announcing the seizure of more than 700 domain names selling counterfeit merchandise for Cyber Monday shopping deals. This I.C.E. initiative, known as Project Cyber Monday IV, began in 2010 and has since seized 2,550 domain names. As the awareness and need for infringement detection grows, IntegriShield continues helping companies overcome the hurdle of isolating brand abuse on unauthorized websites.

 

“Unobstructed exploitation can result in significant brand dilution and loss of equity,” said Flood. Enterprises large and small have a vested interest in protecting their intellectual property from pirates who defame and mutilate brands with substandard products and services. “My team has demonstrated an unmatched responsiveness, understanding this means not just protecting a client’s brand’s image, but their customer’s lifetime value.”
