Easy i has several million users in more than 100 countries. Its major clients include General Electric, the U.S. Department of Defense, Airbus, Diageo, Eli Lilly, Saudi Telecom, Standard & Poor’s, PepsiCo. and DaimlerChrysler.

“Our focus on issues of regulatory compliance, risk management and ethics training and awareness has driven growth in the business,” says Easy i Chairman Terry Hancock, who will be staying with the organization. “Going forward with the SAI group will allow us to expand in terms of client relationships, content and geography, as well as helping drive new modes of distribution and development for current SAI solutions.”
