Transforming an industry is rarely easy, but we started Convercent in 2012 because we knew that ethics and compliance is one of the last and largest unsolved problems in the business world today. People want to do business with and work for ethical companies, but implementing ethics company-wide is a daunting task.
We know that driving ethics to the center has become more important than ever to sustainable business success, but that operationalizing ethics would require new tools. Some of the biggest companies in the world are still managing E&C with spreadsheets — or in a dozen different systems. We know there’s a better way.
Days to close
Open + Honest Communication
We speak thoughtfully and respectfully. We realize the power of our words — and the power of their omission. We promise only what we’re certain to deliver and address hurdles head-on as they arise.
We steer relentlessly toward our company goals with our customers front of mind. Our focus is driven and constant with absolute purpose and passion.
We aim to set a positive tone and delight customers in all that we do. Our brand, vocabulary, products, marketing and communications have a positive, constructive purpose.
Innovation is rarely an accident. We challenge ourselves to reject complacency and try something unconventional, unusual—even uncomfortable. We encourage and embody a willingness to dream big and turn ideas into action.
Genuine curiosity put into action strengthens us as individuals, our business and our customer relationships. We ask questions of each other and of our customers, challenging our assumptions with what we discover.
Intentional design and thoughtfulness permeates everything that we do. We are all architects of our company and ensure there is a common thread between our product, brand, ethics, values and culture making it easy, seamless and enjoyable to do business with us.
Creating a whole new approach to ethics and compliance has been a long road, but we’ve stayed committed to our mission every step of the way.
In April, Convercent is born. Seed funding confirms that the market is ready for a new, cloud-based company that specifically meets modern compliance needs. We’re ready to fill that need, and product development begins in August.
We kick off the New Year by launching to the public and acquiring our first customer. The momentum doesn’t stop as the year continues. Support is now offered in more than 50 languages. Additional investors are brought on as Series A, then B, funding continues.
Market demand isn’t slowing down, and Convercent earns 136% new bookings growth for Q2. We end the year with even more exciting news — 300% sales growth and a 75% spike in new users during 2014.
Product innovations continue throughout the year. We released an entirely unique feature, the ability to manage multiple allegations within a single case. Our Disclosure Manager also arrives — organizations finally have a straightforward interface that separates disclosure management from traditional case management.
With the opening of a new London office, Convercent continues to strive toward global domination of the compliance software space. Clearly, demand for compliance software is hot. We also hire our first CCO, start a Convercent Advisory Board, and host the first-ever CONVERGE conference.
Additional $10M and $25M funding rounds help Convercent continue to drive ethics to the center of business for a better world. Being recognized as one of the fastest growing companies in technology on Deloitte’s 2017 North America Technology Fast 500 list inspired us to continue working hard to deliver true business value to companies around the world.
Corporate ethical transformation was at the forefront of business in 2018. Key product milestones included powerful Benchmarking capabilities and tools for GDPR compliance. Global operations move to a sleek new office space in Denver and more than 300 compliance professionals from around the globe gather for the biggest CONVERGE conference yet.
Another year, another round of exciting advancements in compliance software. We launch our Interactive Code of Conduct product, making it easier than ever to engage employees and encourage ethical behavior.
