“Helping banks go Digital is at the core of our strategy and these awards will encourage us to strive even harder to make our customers successful in their GO-Digital endeavors," Jaideep Billa, CEO of Intellect's Global Consumer Banking (iGCB) division, said. “Digitalization to us means helping banks and financial institutions empower their customers to not just take informed decisions in real time but also to execute actions in real time and in the process opening up new revenue streams for banks. We will continue to innovate and bring to our customers superior Digital solutions built on our state-of-the-art Canvas and Hub technologies.”

“[The] successful implementation of banking technology requires much more than innovative technology, important as that is. It calls for domain expertise and a deep understanding of how to develop, apply, refine and maintain such solutions in order to bolster banking infrastructure," Intellect CEO Manish Maakan said.
