Industry’s leading provider of compliance, licensing, and credentialing automation, delivers record bookings and double-digit increase in revenue; Gears up for the future with further investment in advanced technologies.
Raleigh, NC, Feb. 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — RegEd, the leading provider of RegTech solutions to broker-dealers, insurance companies, insurance brokers, and banks, today announced results from the most successful year in the company’s history. RegEd achieved record growth in 2021, highlighted by a 42% year-over-year increase in organic new annual recurring revenue (ARR) bookings and 34% organic growth over the prior year in annual recurring revenue.
While RegEd’s growth continues to be fueled by constants such as heightened regulatory scrutiny, stricter enforcement, avoidance of reputational risk and technology consolidation, in 2021 RegEd’s product innovation played a large role in driving record sales.
The company brought a next-generation onboarding solution to market in Xchange Agency Contracting and delivered the first fully automated “clear to sell” solution in CLEARXchange, which enables real-time validation of agent, rep and advisor credentials, ensuring compliant placement of business. The company also integrated advanced technology into its market-leading Enterprise Advertising Review solution, reducing human intervention in the advertising review process by up to 70%.
John M. Schobel, RegEd’s CEO and Founder stated, “We’re thrilled with our 2021 results. RegEd saw significant growth in its new ARR bookings, led by our Xchange and Advertising Review solutions, with a forecast to continue on that trajectory through 2023.” Schobel continued, “As we enter 2022, the promise that a single solution can benefit an entire industry is indisputable. RegEd’s ’iterative, greater good’ development credo enables our clients to stand on the shoulders of those that came before them and benefit from the industry’s deepest and most advanced functional capabilities. That value proposition clearly drove new sales in 2021.”
Against this backdrop, RegEd achieved a host of other milestones and launched numerous new capabilities in 2021 to help its customers achieve their compliance and business objectives:
