Identifi partners with Arcadea Group to accelerate growth in the banking and credit union market
Identifi, the leading independent provider of Enterprise Content Management and Workflow software for Banks and Credit Unions, has completed a strategic growth equity recapitalization with Arcadea Group, a long-hold, permanent capital growth investor in high quality software companies. This investment is the third for Arcadea in the Financial Services sector this year.
The transaction will see Identifi’s Founder and CEO, Alan Wiessner, continue in his role and maintain a significant equity interest as the business enters its next chapter of growth and scale.“ We are extremely excited to partner with Arcadea for this next phase of Identifi’s journey. The institutional scale they will bring to us and our customers will allow for accelerated execution against our go-to-market and product strategies” said Wiessner. He went on to mention “We look forward to leveraging Arcadea’s deep vertical software expertise as we increase the scope of our offerings and expand our reach to more customers that can benefit from our best-in-class solutions.”
Daniel Eisen, Managing Director & Co-Founder of Arcadea Group, said, “Al and his team have built a wonderful business that delivers enormous value to their customers. We look forward to supporting the continued growth of the business as it expands its presence in the market. Identifi is a great addition to our growing portfolio of best-in-class independent software vendors for the banking and credit union market. ”
Mike Nicastro, the CEO of Coppermine Advisors a long-time strategic advisor to Identifi, will continue to support the business alongside Arcadea. “I have been extremely impressed with Arcadea’s unique philosophy and approach to investing in high quality software companies.” Mr. Nicastro, having been the CEO of Continuity (a leading RegTech recently acquired by Mitratech) and the SVP & CMO of Open Solutions (OSI, ultimately acquired by Fiserv) where he led overall product strategy, has spent decades in the sector including 10 years as director of a publicly traded community bank. Nicastro continued, “I know that the bank and credit union market badly needs independent, best-of-breed Workflow and ECM solutions and related offerings, for which Identifi is the clear leader across the market. Identifi – and its customers – will be well served by Arcadea’s permanent, stable capital support and commitment to multi-decade outcomes. I am delighted to work alongside the Arcadea team to support the Identifi business in its rapid growth for many years to come.”

Uber, the world’s largest taxi company owns no vehicles. Facebook, the world’s most popular media company, creates no content. Airbnb, the world’s largest accommodation provider, owns no real estate. We recognize technology is changing the way we live and interact with other people, businesses and the world around us. We need to embrace change and recognize new technologies.
New products and services can be our opportunity to differentiate and outperform competitors. We at Identifi have to challenge ourselves everyday to recognize change and create new opportunities for ourselves, our customers and Identifi.
Leadership is changing too. Leadership today is about sharing. One of the ways to share is to challenge those around you. We all know the grind. Sometimes it is all consuming. Pile on to the grind, a customer, boss or coworker presents us with something we don’t agree with for whatever reason, how should we respond?
We need more than company mission statements and vision statements to help us. We need reinforcement. We need core values to guide us.
Who better to define our core values than those of us who are hands-on people we can lean on, guiding you every day to make you successful? Toward that end we asked our Leadership team to craft them. We want to thank Chris Oppenheimer, Christie Russell, Jim Bryant, Matt Ullery, Stacy Paz and Tricia Lolkus for taking on the challenge and through months of meetings of minds produced Identifi’s Core Values. These Core Values also couldn’t have been done without the help of all of Identifi. We did an exercise whereby everyone at Identifi had an opportunity to whiteboard and choose the words that best define us. Our Core Values define our business and the people who are Identifi.
We at Identifi can "identify" with how hectic and demanding the holiday season can be. It was Billy Jean King who said "pressure is a privilege."
At the same time, we all need to take a deep collective breath, relax and enjoy our family and friends.
Here's some advice from someone who shall forever remain anonymous.
"Break the rules. Forgive quickly. Kiss slowly. Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, and NEVER REGRET anything that makes you SMILE."
Happy Holidays from Identifi!
Yes. The old man in the middle is wearing a sweater with a Santa sloth.
A big "Thank You!" to our Identifi customers, partners and our friends at Canon for attending this year's conference and making our conference a success!

Photo Gallery - A good time was had by all!
We had some fun #teambuilding at Identifi's home offices in Safety Harbor , Florida on a hot day. Each of four teams competed to creatively dress large inflatable ducks we floated on the pond behind our sales and admin/conference center buildings. We then voted to determine the winner of the Duck Wars. Rather than reveal the winner, you are welcome to vote yourselves (use the Get in Touch link at the top right of your screen) on which duck, captioned below, you determine to be the winner! Check out our Fire Quacker video!
A good time was had by all! Enjoy some Holiday cheer with the Identifi family!
When I was sixteen, I had just two things on my mind — girls and cars. I wasn’t very good with girls. So I thought about cars. I thought about girls, too, but I had more luck with cars.
Let’s say that when I turned sixteen, a genie had appeared to me. And that genie said, ‘Warren, I’m going to give you the car of your choice. It’ll be here tomorrow morning with a big bow tied on it. Brand-new. And it’s all yours.’
Having heard all the genie stories, I would say, ‘What’s the catch?’ And the genie would answer, ‘There’s only one catch. This is the last car you’re ever going to get in your life. So it’s got to last a lifetime.’
If that had happened, I would have picked out that car. But, can you imagine, knowing it had to last a lifetime, what I would do with it?
I would read the manual about five times. I would always keep it garaged. If there was the least little dent or scratch, I’d have it fixed right away because I wouldn’t want it rusting. I would baby that car, because it would have to last a lifetime.
That’s exactly the position you are in concerning your mind and body. You only get one mind and one body. And it’s got to last a lifetime. Now, it’s very easy to let them ride for many years. But if you don’t take care of that mind and that body, they’ll be a wreck forty years later, just like the car would be.
It’s what you do right now, today, that determines how your mind and body will operate ten, twenty, and thirty years from now.
