Vayle acquires leading FOI software business
Acquisition of Nordat FOI to enhance Vayle’s information access compliance offering for Canadian public sector entities.
TORONTO, Ontario, August 23rd, 2022
Vayle Inc., a leading provider of information security and privacy compliance solutions, today announced it has acquired Nordat Inc.’s Freedom of Information (FOI) software business through a wholly-owned subsidiary.
For over 20 years, Nordat FOI has helped Canadian municipalities, police agencies, and provincial ministries process, track, and analyze FOI requests. The application has also enabled clients to significantly reduce the time required to generate annual reports for privacy regulators. Customers range from small municipal entities to large municipalities and provincial ministries that process hundreds of requests annually.
The acquisition reflects Vayle’s ongoing investment in strengthening its public sector offering to address the rising demand for privacy and information access compliance solutions. Vayle and Nordat FOI clients will benefit by accessing a fully integrated FOI proposition that includes both software and advisory services. Nordat FOI will be rebranded as Vayle FOI.
Shaun McIver, CEO and founder of Vayle, said, “The Nordat FOI acquisition fits squarely with Vayle’s mission to simplify information access, privacy, and security compliance for our customers. We look forward to bringing enhanced value to Nordat FOI clients while maintaining exceptional customer service standards”.
Greg O’Brien, President and founder of Nordat, said. “Nordat FOI has become an increasingly indispensable tool for our clients as the product has evolved over the years. I am excited to pass the baton to Vayle as they make the necessary investments to take the application to the next level”.
