BrandComply College Selected By University of Massachusetts

Aug. 17, 2022 |


ATLANTA, August 15, 2022 - Octane5, the company behind the BrandComply College licensing enterprise platform and VerityTM Security Hang Tags and Labels, announces the University of Massachusetts as the latest BrandComply College client. UMass joins a growing list of independent institutions that have discovered how easy it is to run their licensing program through BrandComply.

"For many schools, managing a licensing program in-house makes sense. BrandComply College makes that process easy and the addition of UMass proves that out," said John Mybeck, President of BrandComply College. "BrandComply College lets institutions manage their entire program - Product Approvals, Royalties, Contracts, Assets and Brand Protection all in one place."

"As an independent, multi-campus system, our team at UMass was blown away by the functionality and reporting analytics that BrandComply College offers its clients. There is nothing quite like it and we knew right away it would help transform our program," said Evelin Simmons, University Trademark and Licensing Director at the University of Massachusetts. "These initial positive impressions have only grown since we launched the tool. The Brandcomply College team and their launch process are incredible and we're building the program we always envisioned for our fans and stakeholders at UMass."

"We appreciate the trust placed in us by the UMass team and all our partner institutions," stated Mybeck. "Interest in our solutions continues to grow with more and more schools joining and the market response has been incredibly gratifying."
