ArchiveSocial Merges With Website Compliance Startup Monsido

The move closely follows ArchiveSocial's acquisition of NextRequest, meaning the combined company now covers social media communications, websites and public records requests in one organization.

ArchiveSocial, a company that helps government agencies store social media posts, has merged with Monsido, a Danish startup that gauges website performance and compliance.

The move comes a scant two months after ArchiveSocial announced it was acquiring NextRequest, which provides tech to help public-sector agencies handle public records requests. Pulling the three businesses under one umbrella creates a company with a singular function — compliance — across the use cases of websites, social media communication and public records requests.

“While websites remain integral to an organization’s digital strategy, social media provides a highly complementary platform for expanding reach,” Monsido co-founder Jannik Grøntved said in a press release. “ArchiveSocial has powerful digital archiving solutions, and we are excited to expand our ability to support marketing and communication professionals with tools to achieve digital compliance, wherever they communicate with their users.”

ArchiveSocial’s technology can be used to keep the social media posts of government officials that constitute public records on hand so that they can be accessed later. Monsido offers a bevy of tools for website management, including measuring loading times, finding accessibility problems, identifying broken links, giving users cookie consent options and others.

The deal also brings together two companies in the portfolio of investment firm Level Equity. That firm has also invested in gov tech company GovInvest, which offers tools to governments to manage costs related to pensions, post-employment benefits and labor.

ArchiveSocial is based in North Carolina, while Monsido has offices in California, Denmark, the U.K. and Australia.
