Updates to Syrenis' consent management platform Preference Centre (now known as Cassie) makes managing preferences simpler and more seamless

UK software company Syrenis is delighted to announce the recent appointment of their new Canadian reseller, Newport Thomson. Newport Thomson serve the US, Canada and the EU, helping businesses to manage risk within their businesses by operationalising data and privacy best practices.

Syrenis is renowned for its Preference Centre, which has recently been expanded and rebranded to accommodate changes to the personal data and privacy landscape. Now known as Cassie, the personal information platform currently handles almost a billion marketing preferences for 118 million customer contacts worldwide, and securing knowledgeable new partners such as Newport Thomson brings the platform to more businesses with currently unmet personal data needs.

‘The level of expertise within Newport Thomson became clear from our very first conversations with them,’ says Glenn Jackson, CEO of Syrenis. ‘Naturally we’re delighted to have them on board and we look forward to a long partnership with them.’

‘Record keeping is the biggest compliance issue for any of these new laws being implemented globally, from GDPR to CCPA, including PIPEDA and CASL,’ states Derek Lackey, Managing Partner, Newport Thomson. ‘Our client’s data and privacy infrastructure was never designed to prove consent claims or any of the other details required by these new laws. In order to be compliant an organization must re-think the way they manage data, privacy, consent and data subject rights and Syrenis is an exceptional solution at the right price.’

The system has been engineered to be flexible and intuitive for users, allowing for better brand consistency and a positive preference management experience. It now offers improved support functions: previously hidden features have been made more accessible, such as a bank of FAQs for reference, and users can also submit and manage support requests from within their portal interface.

‘The changing privacy landscape on the North American continent is something that we have been watching with great interest,’ Glenn continues. ‘Having a partner with such strong bases in both the US and Canada allows us to work together to deliver the best possible personal data solutions for those markets.’
