We identified a problem: An ever-increasing stream of legal requirements for trust and compliance

We noticed three things happening in our market. First, we saw companies that wanted to keep up with laws around digital signatures, time-stamps, secure archiving and similar trust services struggle with clunky trust technology solutions that were built by engineers with little or no understanding of legal processes.
Second, we witnessed their frustration with having to retain external compliance and integration experts to painstakingly keep these technology-only solutions compliant with government requirements.
Finally, we understood it was not going to get easier. Our experience in working with governments and law enforcement bodies made us realize that businesses should prepare for an ever-increasing stream of legal requirements for trust and compliance, and that these requirements would evolve at the same pace as technology.

We addressed it with a unique, fully-hosted compliance service in the cloud

So in the early 2000s, we set out to create an automated compliance service. To get a bit technical, it would be an IT platform that could support a wide range of country-specific or industry-specific trust and compliance matrices. Importantly, it would be easy to configure as requirements changed. We launched our first fully hosted compliance service in 2007. Since then we have grown to become a company that analysts and industry experts consider to be unique in its market coverage as well as its breadth and quality of service. The world around us is largely developing in the way we anticipated a decade ago: legal requirements for trust and compliance are mushrooming up around us.

We’re now a leading facilitator in a world of real-time technology controls by governments

We’ve made it easier and more efficient for companies to remain compliant in their business transaction documentation wherever they are around the world. But we have to admit one thing: governments have started to innovate their ways of controlling trade and commerce in ways that surpass even our imagination. TrustWeaver’s unique experience with making compliance available as a service has never been more relevant than it is today. We are a profitable vendor with a unique offering and a superb partner network and customer base. TrustWeaver is backed by Sweden’s leading industry tenors and we’re actively investing in expanding our service portfolio.
