Ignition acquires assets of Cayman-based Blue Bison
Bermudas Ignition Technology Group has acquired the assets of Blue Bison Software Consultants in the Cayman Islands, further strengthening its offerings in the offshore market.
Ignition said in a statement it will provide the necessary investments in funding and resources to significantly enhance, support, extend and market the Blue Bison application set, which offers packaged and custom-built software solutions, primarily to firms in the financial services industry, throughout the region.
Ignitions group CEO Graham Pearson stated: We see a tremendous opportunity to build upon the already impressive Blue Bison client base. Through our Business Solutions Practice, headed up by Christopher Eaton, key enhancements will include tight integration with SharePoint, KnowledgeLake and social media plus the introduction of additional GRC solutions, including FATCA reporting.
Our Core Technology Practice will be able to provide the clients with a complete solution including an optional secure Private Cloud hosting platform as well as 7 x 24 service desk and application monitoring.
The Blue Bison applications are: HR Manager; Company Manager; Know Your Customer and the Database Risk Search solution.
The initial focus for Ignition, leading providers of Governance, Risk Management and Compliance (GRC) technology solutions for clients in the offshore market, will be to provide upgraded features and improved support for the current Blue Bison client-base.
This will be followed by the regionalisation of applications in order to meet the needs of clients in the Bahamas, Barbados, Bermuda, BVI and the Channel Islands with other markets following shortly thereafter.
Alva Suckoo, CEO of Blue Bison commented: I see this as the logical next phase of the evolution of Blue Bison. With Ignitions scale and regional presence, they will improve the product set, raise customer satisfaction and extend the reach into new markets. I am delighted for our clients and staff and foresee a very bright future for Blue Bison.
