Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 27, 2014
Social123, a leading provider of data cleansing, email validation and lead generation solutions for marketers, announced today the launch of a new data service aimed at helping businesses, organizations and non-profits comply with the strict Canadian Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL). This law, effective July 1st, 2014, restricts sending Commercial Electronic Messages (CEM’s) to Canadian citizens and businesses located in Canada for the purpose of commercial solicitation without their expressed consent. The penalty for non-compliance is up to $10 million dollars in fines and personal liability of officers and directors.
With Social123’s CASL solution, the Company helps their customers comply by identifying the most critical element of risk, the contact information inside their CRM.
“In today’s marketing landscape,” states Aaron Biddar, CEO of Social123, “a company's CRM is packed full of inaccurate or missing information about their contacts due to all the ways companies source for and manage contacts. Some CRM contacts only have name, title and company. If you are a marketer with missing information throughout your database, how do you know if this person lives and works in Canada? Social123’s CASL compliance solution removes the guess work and solves the industry problem of the “unknowns” by identifying which contacts have at-risk elements in their professional and company profile. No one else can offer this solution at the contact level with such precision and accuracy and we are thrilled that it has helped so many customers to date.”
“This anti-spam legislation is the toughest of its kind in the world and it’s not going away,” said Chief Marketing Officer Suzanne Ward. “Our phones have been flooded for days which indicates marketers are not ready for July 1st. We can deliver our solution to customers within hours and provide ongoing monitoring with our CASL assurance program. The monetary and reputation risk to company officers is too great to do anything less.”
