ACL, provider of technology solutions in audit, compliance and risk management, announced it has completed the acquisition of Denver-based digital design firm Artletic.

With the acquisition, Artletic’s team of designers will join ACL as full-time employees to work on the user experience for ACL’s more than 14,000 commercial and government customers in 150 countries. User interface design studio Artletic, founded in 2007, has previously been a resource for ACL GRC, ACL’s cloud-based audit, compliance and risk management solution, and ACL’s data analytics platform.

“We are on a mission to consolidate the point-solution-dominated GRC category through a platform driven by exceptional user experience, true cloud delivery, and the seamless integration of powerful risk analytics,” stated Laurie Schultz, President and CEO of ACL. “We’re seeing triple-digit growth and industry analyst recognition because customers find our products incredibly intuitive, especially when compared with the market’s over-priced, over-built, and outdated alternatives. With the acquisition of Artletic, we are investing further in people who bring world-class software experiences to the audit, compliance, and risk management category, and I could not be more thrilled that the team of UX designers at Artletic will be joining the ACL team.”

“We want to change the world, and our work with ACL has been the most challenging and successful in terms of doing that,” stated Matt Crest, founder and principal of Artletic. “Thanks to this acquisition, we will get the opportunity to go much further, focusing 100 percent of our time on making the work of hundreds of thousands of GRC professionals around the world easier, more enjoyable, and much more valuable. We’ve enjoyed an amazing relationship with ACL’s team and we simply couldn’t miss the opportunity to be a part of this transformation in the way the world’s best organizations operate. I can’t wait to see what we can do together as one team.”
