Mylo Solutions wants it to be known that they are not Acteva or affiliated with Acteva at all. The claim they are merely using the and licensing the Acteva software for their newly founded company. They have managed to make it look so blurry that its hard to tell if they are or are not Acteva.
Looks like a Duck.
Mylo Solutions is cofounded by Bill Briner. Bill was the VP of product for Acteva. Mylo is also employing Dave Ghosh, he was the VP of Sales for Acteva. Mylo has just set up a LinkedIn account and only one person has identified themselves as being empolyeed, Tanya Petrov. She is the Director of Marketing. She was also the Director of Marketing at Acteva.
Sounds like a duck.
The newest member to the Mylo team is David “Dave” Bunnell. Dave is handling the social media for Mylo Solution. I was recently alerted to the fact that Mylo now has a twitter and Facebook. I looked at the FB account and noticed, 3 people were liking the posts, Mylo Solutions, Tanya and Mr. Bunnell. Yes, Dave used this same tactic with Acteva. I took a look at the twitter account and noticed they were following a high number of people. I strongly suspect that this is a practice know as autofollowing.
Autofollowing is when you use a program to follow a bunch of profiles hoping that they will follow you back. You then either unfollow the ones that are or are not following you back. I noticed the similar tactic with Dave’s other twitter accounts.
Talks like a duck.
Another tactic that Dave uses is retweeting tweets on his other accounts. Low and behold but the now defunct Acteva twitter account has retweeted a mylo tweet. Janelle now has a last name of hopper and has changed her handle to caringtweets. Bunnell also took over the twitter account for Ken Okino when Jimmy Beans Cafe closed down. Ken was one of the ones to sound off in support of Acteva back in May.
Its a duck.
It sure looks like Acteva and Mylo Solutions are sharing the same DNA. It appears to that Mylo Solutions is just Acteva being rebranded. They probably are different companies but relying on the same tactics and crew. The only thing I know is, I don’t trust either. Michael McNally advised me that Mylo has a partnership with Salesforce, none exists. Acteva no longer has a partnership with Salesforce as it is currently being reviewed. It will take people much higher up to figure out if Acteva and Mylo Solutions are one company or not.
