The BDO Alliance USA (“BDO Alliance”), an association of independent accounting, consulting, product and service firms, and Markaaz, the world’s first global operating system for small and mid-size businesses, today announced a strategic relationship that will enable the development and deployment of world class integrated solutions for small and medium sized businesses (SMBs).
Through this strategic relationship, BDO Alliance’s Business Resource Network (BRN), a collection of independent firms that provide professional services and products to businesses, will complement its current service offerings through Markaaz’ best-in-class tools and resources that help support SMB clients in growing and managing their businesses. “We’re excited to join forces with Markaaz and leverage its groundbreaking platform and solutions to help round out the digital service offerings we provide to BRN clients,” says Rob Merl, National Practice Director of the BDO Alliance USA Business Resource Network. “Markaaz connects the dots for clients in new ways and brings innovation and execution to another level. We’re looking forward to making this available to our Alliance Firms and their clients.”
Markaaz has a scalable integrated solution set, powered by patented AI, data, and infrastructure to deliver its all-in-one platform. This means that for the first time, SMBs will be able to connect and integrate their CRM, accounting, supply chain and many other services through Markaaz, while also being able to create custom solutions and tools for their individual business in real-time. Markaaz and the BDO Alliance will make this functionality accessible for all SMB clients.

We’re looking forward to building a better environment with increased resources and opportunities for SMBs, but this is only the beginning. Together, we have a bold vision with the BDO Alliance.”
