BELMONT, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/29/13 -- Actiance®, helping organizations benefit from communications, collaboration and social networking, today announced that CIBC Wood Gundy, the brokerage arm of the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC), has implemented Socialite to begin allowing its advisors to leverage social networks effectively and compliantly for marketing and sales efforts.
According to an Environics Research Group March 2012 survey of Canadian financial advisors, roughly one in four are using social media in some capacity in their practices and one-quarter of those advisors are using LinkedIn® to communicate. Understanding the importance of these new communication channels, CIBC Wood Gundy selected Socialite to allow its advisors to use LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook to both build and maintain business through social channels in a manner that ensures compliance with industry regulations.
The Socialite platform allows any organization to maximize the value of social media by empowering employees to share pre-approved content, interact with clients and prospects, and analyze the impact of published content.
"From brand awareness to maintaining and building a book of business, the socially savvy financial advisor is truly starting to make social media work for them," says Sarah Carter, general manager of Social Business at Actiance. "And while our technology platform provides for the automation of compliance and engagement capabilities, the experts in our social engagement team help organizations truly unleash social business. We're excited to see CIBC Wood Gundy leap forward with initiatives that cement their position as thought leaders and equip their advisors with the platform and support to communicate in the social world."

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
