June 11, 2001 (Washington, D.C.) — In-house counsel just got another tool to help them in their efforts to educate corporate employees about their legal obligations, thanks to a new partnership between the American Corporate Counsel Association (ACCA) and WeComply, Inc., which offers online compliance training. WeComply is the newest member of the ACCA Alliance, a select group of companies that provide professional products and services specifically designed for in-house counsel.
Under the ACCA Alliance, WeComply, Inc. will offer ACCA members one free compliance training course of their choice (for up to 100 employees) from the more than 40 online compliance training programs the company offers. Among other benefits, WeComply, Inc. offers companies the ability to customize their compliance programs to meet their particular needs, and thus make the training more meaningful to their employees.

They meet the industry standard for interoperability with the leading learning management systems, and are accessible without special hardware, software or a fast web connection from any computer-even from handheld devices.

"The breadth of WeComply's compliance training offerings, its forward-thinking use of web technology, and the cost-effectiveness of its solution will be of tremendous value to our members."
