CHARLOTTE … Ephinay, a finance and accounting business process outsourcing firm, has begun offering its services in Canada through a relationship with Toronto-based CIC Enterprises and its principal, David Bird.

CIC will be a selling agent for Ephinay to financial services firms that want to take advantage of Ephinay’s offshore delivery capability in Delhi, India, for back-office functions. Ephinay will also make available its comprehensive service offering for finance and accounting across all vertical industries, which could include use of its Phoenix service center where appropriate.

“Canada is a market that interests us very much because its executives realize the advantages that come with being global-minded,” Ephinay President and Chief Executive Michael Gantt said in a statement. “Our offshore-onshore service delivery capabilities mean that we can bring Six Sigma quality as well as cost savings to the financial transaction processing operations of leading Canadian companies.”
