Mauritian tech company expanding around the world

Posted 9 June 2020 · Add Comment

Maureva, a Mauritius-based company that specialises in the provision of software and follow-up services to airlines, continues to grow internationally with the opening of offices in the Canadian city of Montreal and a further subsidiary in the South Korean capital city of Seoul.

Since its inception 15 years ago, Maureva has forged a reputation for excellence in the field of international management services.
The pioneers of this Mauritian start-up, including its director general, Nicolas Boyet, come from the world of aviation and they have a specific goal to develop interactive business applications that facilitate airline management. “Our main aim is to make the most of technology in the processing of airline revenue, with a focus on productivity and quality,” explained Boyet.
The advent of the Internet and e-ticketing has changed the face of revenue accounting, and the industry has seen significant gains from these structuring tools in terms of productivity and revenue growth. Today, operators handle more transactions with fewer staff and more IT.
Maureva is one of the few management services centres that create both its own software and data processing systems, and the company has developed a complete range of products.
The first component was revenue accounting with EDGAR software; then MARGO, a cargo management system; followed by ALEXIS (flight planning and crew management solutions); ANDIE (new distribution capability recently certified level 4); and, finally, MATIS (business intelligence).
Maureva currently provides management services to more than 60 airlines worldwide.
“We work equally well with small companies that don’t have in-house IT resources and also with major international airlines like Cathay Pacific and Air New Zealand,” said Boyet.
Maureva has become a larger SME, with more than 300 employees, mainly Mauritians, including many talented women in key positions. It has a main base in Mauritius for development, support and processing, with two development centres on the relatively nearby French island of Réunion.
For Boyet, Maureva was already well-positioned geographically to service its clients in Europe, Africa and the Middle East, but it was challenging to cover Asia, along with the Americas. So the company’s new offices will allow it to meet the needs of customers in these regions.
“Today, we cover all time zones from Seoul, Mauritius and Montreal,” he said. “Asia is now seeing many airlines buying aircraft and it also has new companies investing and developing fast. They need solutions and applications quickly to ensure optimal management,” he concluded.
Maureva has recently won several new contracts, including Bamboo Airways, Air Peace, ProFlight Zambia, Air Creebec and Cayman Airways, and for more than a decade it has been a strategic partner of IATA, being involved with running working groups designed to develop standards to help make the industry more efficient and productive.
