Steton Raises $7.5M in Series B Funding Round

Access Holdings Invests in the Leading Provider of Cloud-Based Compliance Audit and Quality Management Solutions

SALT LAKE CITY, Nov. 3, 2015 -- Steton Technology Group, Inc., the world's leading provider of compliance auditing SaaS technology, today announced the completion of a $7.5 million Series B financing backed by Access Holdings, a private equity firm based in Baltimore and Toronto. Including Series A financing in September 2014, Access Holdings has invested a total of $30 million into Steton to support product innovation, accelerated sales, and market expansion.

Steton's growth has been driven by increased demand for brand protection among global organizations. Compliance auditing programs are heavily analyzed by executive leaders under pressure to deliver quality and positive customer experiences in today's highly digital environment.

"Compliance and quality management solutions represent an enormous, yet neglected market," said Kevin McAllister, managing partner of Access Holdings. "Existing solutions are hard to use, painful to implement, or too narrowly focused for today's highly scrutinized service and retail organizations. Steton is the most powerful product with tremendous penetration into the world's biggest brands."

With millions of stakeholders responsible for internal auditing programs in food service, hotel, and retail stores worldwide, the company has identified the high opportunity for growth. Steton provides a full suite of applications that give companies greater visibility, intelligence, and control over their quality and compliance auditing programs.

"Financial backing from Access Holdings allows Steton to accelerate growth, particularly around product development and industry adoption," said Frank Maylett, president and CEO of Steton. "Steton has real business impact that helps our customers succeed, and with resources allocated appropriately we will shape and define the future of compliance auditing programs."
