SALT LAKE CITY, March 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Steton, the world's leading provider of enterprise compliance management software, today rebranded as RizePoint.
Prior to choosing the new brand, a rigorous process ensured the new name reflected the company's values and strategic direction. In addition to multi-country screening, the name was market tested to evaluate how well it conveyed the nature of the business and the company's desired brand attributes.
"The Steton name and brand represent partnership and family to those who know us," said Frank Maylett, president and CEO of RizePoint. "Today, nearly 20 years after our founding, we've expanded globally, we continue to evolve our award-winning mobile and cloud-based technologies, and find ourselves ready for the next chapter."
RizePoint software is used by 5 of the top 8 hospitality brands – including Marriott, Intercontinental, Hilton, and Wyndham – and 5 of the top 8 food service brands – including McDonald's, Starbucks, Wendy's, and Pizza Hut. That equates to more than 285,000 users worldwide in 120 countries and in 40 languages.
"These world-class companies trust us because we build and protect their brand equity," said Maylett. "And we accomplish that by enabling a consistent customer experience that drives increased revenues and success."
Announced today in conjunction with the name change, RizePoint begins a series of community partnerships and is awarding 10 scholarships to local middle-school students through The Canyons School District Education Foundation. The scholarships will fund summer camp attendance in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subject areas.
"While academic achievement is our main focus, the Canyons Board of Education is also dedicated to maintaining relationships with the business sector. Only by working together can we build up world-class schools that will prepare students for the demands of the 21st century global marketplace," said Sherril H. Taylor, president of the Canyons Board of Education. "We welcome the support that RizePoint brings to our community and express appreciation for the company's generosity in helping our students excel in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics."
"We are a proud member of the local community, and are very invested in fortifying the future workforce," said Maylett. "It's time for the great companies around the country to invest in better educational opportunities around the STEM initiatives".
The new name and brand will take effect immediately, and will be implemented across the company's product line throughout the calendar year 2016. Learn more about the new RizePoint brand here: http://rizepoint.com/we-are-rizepoint/.
