With the industry leading Finacle digital banking platform, the bank is well placed to achieve its vision of creating a ‘new age bank’ designed to deliver on its primary commitment of financial inclusion.
- The Finacle platform replaced the bank’s incumbent information technology stack in a seamless eight-month implementation period.
- The new platform will enable the bank to achieve significant improvement in operations and offer round the clock banking facilities especially to the under-banked and un-banked sections of the society, across India.
- With the Finacle solutions, SSFB is enabled to provide unlimited product functionalities, expanding its current offerings and rolling out products and services on-demand, to suit different financial needs of their customers.
- The robust Open Application Programming Interface (API) that the Finacle platform offers will allow the bank to effectively implement Open Banking, and easily collaborate with its external ecosystem, including fintechs, digital businesses and non-banking financial service providers, including Aadhar biometric identification system, and NPCI’s payment systems.
