Over the last few months I have been working with one of my clients, Jobstream Group, to develop a partnership in Mauritius.  Jobstream Group are a UK based software company specialising in the offshore financial services sector, particularly trust administration and corporate services providers.

I recognised an opportunity for Jobstream in Mauritius and over the last 6 months have developed the relationship with the local IT and Outsourcing business BDO Solutions.   This work has now paid off and I continue to work with BDO Solutions to develop their skills and experience in Jobstream software and by introducing other opportunities to them.

Here is a copy of the recent announcement that was jointly released by Jobstream Group and BDO Solutions:

Jobstream Group partners with BDO Solutions in Mauritius to service offshore management companies

May 2015

Jobstream Group has announced a partnership with BDO Solutions in Mauritius. Already an International Finance Centre of repute, Mauritius’ strategic location has significant potential for investors. This partnership is aimed at capturing a substantial market share in the jurisdiction by combining BDO Solutions’ local knowledge and services expertise with Jobstream’s state of the art trust administration software.

BDO Solutions is a member firm of BDO International, currently the fifth largest network of accounting professionals worldwide. It was set up in 2014 with the aim to provide the local and international markets with technology and outsourcing services. Its four main pillars, namely System Integration & Consulting, IT Audit and Data Analysis, Infrastructure Management, and Outsourcing, are spearheaded by two partners.

Jim Sykes, General Manager at Jobstream, said:

“We are delighted to be in this strategic partnership with BDO, which will enable Jobstream’s continued growth in this new jurisdiction.”

Both companies, with their common expertise, knowledge and professional approach, intend to work hand in hand to enable organisations to improve their processes, enabling staff to be better informed and fully compliant with regulations though the adoption of Jobstream technology. In this unique situation BDO Solutions will provide the Jobstream 9 software platform to local trust companies, family offices, and similar organisations, acting as the first point of contact and line of support, both technically and functionally.

Feizal Jownally, Partner at BDO Solutions, spoke enthusiastically about the opportunities this partnership will create:

“We are confident that through this partnership we will cater to the ever growing and changing business environment in the financial services market. We are extremely pleased to be associated with Jobstream Group for its world-class solution suites and services. Moreover, we would like to thank them for trusting us and for considering BDO Solutions as their partner of choice.”
