Mr. Sudeep Verma (Global Head – FinnOne Neo) stated, “As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Financial Services industry is re-thinking its digital strategy. While much of the focus to date has been on the front end, for example banking from home and contactless banking, the new world needs a more holistic strategy. Lending needs to be digitized completely, from front to back, eliminating as much manual intervention as possible. The regulatory eco-system is rapidly changing with initiatives in areas such as Moratoriums, Subsidies, changing how loans are classified and how provisioning is catered for. FinnOne Neo 5.0 enables lenders to handle these challenges quickly and easily. The solution provides sophisticated self-sourcing, self-servicing and collection capabilities powered by a policy driven lending platform which eliminates most of the manual work that is required by other systems. With more than 360 APIs, lenders can seamlessly integrate with the growing financial eco system, and the solution’s highly configurable processing engines ensure that lenders can tailor their operations to meet the needs of the dynamically evolving regulatory landscape. Lenders can set up and manage a wide range of financial products across Home, Auto, Agri, Lifestyle, Micro and Business Lending.”
