Matcha, the leading content marketing platform for small businesses, today announced a partnership with NewsCred, the leading provider of enterprise content marketing technology and services. Gartner recently named NewsCred the leading content marketing platform for enterprises, ahead of competitors like Contently, Percolate, and Skyword. The partnership will enable Matcha to expand its content marketing solution beyond the outdoor and travel industries to small businesses in the fitness & wellness, beauty & fashion, home & family, and food & beverage sectors.
"Historically, content marketing has been off-limits to small businesses because the resources required to create, distribute, and measure content are overwhelming," said Fynn Glover, founder and CEO of Matcha. "We believe that SMB marketers—especially in e-commerce businesses—need a solution that simplifies content marketing, yet has a powerful impact on the results of their overall growth strategy."
ID.me, the next generation digital identity platform, today announced the expansion of its executive team with four new appointments: Ned Struzziero as Vice President of Public Sector, Wade Callison as Vice President of Financial Services & Healthcare, Brian Piccioni as Vice President of Finance, and Melissa Blanken as Vice President of Marketing & eCommerce. Pradheep Sampath has also stepped up as ID.me’s Chief Product Officer after serving a successful year as Vice President of Product.
ID.me recently surpassed 10 million users on its platform, doubling its user count in just over a year. Since hitting the 5 million user milestone in December 2017, ID.me added significant new capabilities to its platform including Virtual In-Person proofing, employment verification, and Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) verification. The company also began authenticating healthcare providers in compliance with the DEA’s requirements for Electronic Prescription for Controlled Substances (EPCS) in order to combat the opioid crisis. Last August, ID.me earned accreditation against the new NIST 800-63-3 identity standards at Identity Assurance Level 2 and Authenticator Assurance Level 2 level -- the most rigorous set of federal controls established to bind an individual’s legal identity to a digital login.
ID.me, the next generation digital identity platform, today announced that it has surpassed 10 million users, doubling its user count in just over a year. The company achieved this milestone after federal government agencies, two top ten retailers, and a major American city integrated with ID.me’s shared login service. Those partners drove substantial new user growth and expanded the number of places where ID.me users may access services.
ID.me simplifies how individuals securely share their identity online. Like a digital driver’s license, once an individual has created an ID.me login and verified their identity, they may sign-in to any site that accepts ID.me and consent to the release of their verified identity without needing to create a new login and password or to re-verify their identity at that site. This user-centric approach to identity puts ID.me’s ten million plus users in full control of their own data and who has access to it based on their own security and privacy preferences.

A recent report from GlobalData found that only 10% of wealth managers perceive robo-advisors as an immediate threat. With the entire financial industry racing towards widespread digital adoption, it begs the question – shouldn’t they be more worried? John Wise, CEO, Co-Founder and Chairman of InvestCloud investigates.
The biggest mistake wealth managers are making is holding on to the long-standing belief that robo-advisors will only serve the lower retail market. This is the same mistake ‘brick and mortar’ stores made in sizing up Amazon as a threat; they fail to appreciate the competitive advantage a digital platform has.
