HOUSTON — Onit, Inc., a leading provider of Enterprise Apps, today announced its certification of compliance with the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework, effective as of Monday, April 27, 2015.
The framework, developed by the United States Department of Commerce in consultation with the European Union in 1998, is a streamlined process by which U.S. companies comply with the EU’s policy on the protection of personal data. As described in Onit’s Safe Harbor certification, Onit complies with the requirements of the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework with respect to certain personal information that is transferred from the European Economic Area to the United States.

Launched in early 2010, Onit deploys Smart Process Apps to simplify business process automation and improve business productivity across all departments and industries. The Onit App Builder allows business users to drive efficiency and productivity by combining business process management, project management, and information management into one easy-to-use tool so the user can create their own Onit Apps without having to rely on IT for support.
Businesses have processes for everything — whether it’s hiring a vendor or law firm, terminating an employee, submitting a contract for review, requesting a trademark request, obtaining an NDA, etc. Most of these processes are manual, paper intensive and cumbersome. With Onit Apps, processes are automated in a few clicks, responsible parties are notified immediately, and data collection is centralized. Onit doesn’t require any software to download or resources from IT. For more information, visit www.onit.com or contact 1-800-281-1330.
