The association as per the joint venture is designed to bring together JMR’s bouquet of solution offerings along with the Seed Group’s local and regional understanding to create a unique vantage proposition leveraging insights and assets that will hugely benefit banks and large financial groups in the region.

Given changing priorities due to the Covid-19 pandemic and owing to the evolving business landscape in the banking space, how will this JV benefit organisations in the MENA region?
Jayafar Moidu: JMR understands the Covid-19 impact on the economy and acknowledges the need to enhance business – both in terms of speed of economic activity and responsiveness to changing customer needs. Digital-led business models and ecosystems are a key solution and the partnership will bring relevant offerings. JMR’s Genie de Banca, an innovative digital platform, will enable banks and financial institutions to shape innovative solutions, automate and digitise their lending departments end-to-end, develop new revenue channels, and present their customers with new products and services.

What opportunities for business does this JV see in the region?
Hisham Al Gurg: Digital adoption within and across businesses and the society at large in the UAE and MEA presents multiple opportunities for companies like JMR Infotech. The Seed Group will work to jointly explore, position, and secure mandates for the partnership. Solution offerings could include developing market ecosystems, financial systems transformation, and learning enablement amongst others.

Currently, financial institutions in the region are going through a massive transformative phase. It requires them to significantly develop their back-end technology to enable them to enhance their customer offerings. These institutions will benefit immensely from the proven expertise and cost-effective value-based services and solutions of JMR Infotech.

What are the biggest challenges that you foresee for this JV in and how do you plan to overcome them?
Jayafar Moidu: The current economic scenario has adversely impacted the revenue growth for banks and financial institutions globally, leading to reduced budgets for investments on technology and digital transformation.

But we believe that this period presents the biggest opportunity for us to help banks and financial institutions realign their business strategies by creating digital ecosystems to become more customer-centric.
