SmartStream Technologies has announced a new partnership with EastNets, a provider of global compliance and payments solutions and services. EastNets, which has over 250 financial institutions on its service bureau, will act as a distributor for TLM OnDemand, offering SmartStream’s software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution to its clients in the Middle East and US. The reconciliations service is a natural extension to the firm’s already established service bureau and offers EastNets’ clients additional strategies to control risk and cost in their business.
In addition to delivering SmartStream’s SaaS reconciliation offering, EastNets will also distribute SmartStream’s suite of TLM and Corona solutions. This is the first distribution agreement for TLM OnDemand and will enable EastNets to offer rapid on-boarding and transaction based pricing for the market-leading reconciliations solutions.
EastNets and SmartStream will be holding a series of workshops over the next few months to explain to firms across the Middle East region and the US how they can take advantage of the partnership.
