ArchiveSocial Acquires FOIA Software Provider NextRequest1

ArchiveSocial, a provider of social media archiving software for government agencies and law enforcement officials announced the acquisition of NextRequest, a provider of FOIA software that empowers governments to easily manage public records requests.

The COVID-19 pandemic brought about an “everything virtual” culture and accelerated the role social media plays in government. This crucial communication tool has become imperative for agencies to serve efficiently, scale cheaply, and adapt quickly. But with this increased digital focus comes increased risk and demand for greater public records compliance. The acquisition expands ArchiveSocial’s offerings to provide complete public records coordination, processing and request management capabilities.

“With the accelerated growth in public records requests, it is crucial to have tools to ease the burden on both the requester and the government agencies that fulfil the requests,” said Reed Duecy-Gibbs, CEO and Founder of NextRequest. “We look forward to joining forces with ArchiveSocial, bringing together our complementary services and technologies.”

Together ArchiveSocial and NextRequest bring peace of mind to agencies across the globe, from small cities and school districts to Federal agencies and Presidential administrations, by automating records retention to effectively meet compliance obligations and streamline the access to public records.

All NextRequest employees will remain onboard and ArchiveSocial plans to continue hiring both locally in North Carolina and remotely to support the growth of both offerings.
