A booklet from RI3K, Compliance and regulation, dropped through Backchat's letterbox recently. The pamphlet contained a number of bullet points on contract certainty and how RI3K's system was vital to achieve it.

Sounds familiar? It doesn't seem long ago that Kinnect's former executive chairman Iain Saville was banging the contract certainty drum to persuade the market's non-believers to sign up to the Kinnect platform.

But there the similarities end. Unlike Kinnect, RI3K hasn't lost its top executives and its software isn't being recoded.
