SmartStream Technologies has expanded its relationship with existing partner Syscom to sell the full suite of SmartStream’s transaction lifecycle management (TLM) solutions throughout China.
Syscom, a Taiwanese company, provides advanced software applications and solutions to the Chinese financial services sector. It also delivers specialised professional consulting, testing services and technical support to clients including the Shenzhen Stock Exchange, Shanghai Stock Exchange, Bank of China, China Merchant Bank and Guandong Development Bank. Its existing partnership with SmartStream has been expanded from Taiwan to also cover China.
James Liu, general manager at Syscom, said: “Syscom has proven experience in the financial services sector across China. The relationship with SmartStream has already proven to be a success in Taiwan and this is a great opportunity for us to offer TLM solutions across the rest of the region. China is one of the fastest growing markets in the world and many organisations are looking to automate their existing manual processes to cope with this growth. We look forward to offering our clients access to solutions that provide more cost-effective, efficient and compliant operations.”
