With digitalisation and an increase in the number of transactions, be it online, via card, or ATMs, consumer protection has become essential and critical. This has led to a rise in the number of regulatory compliances for the banks and the need to meet them most efficiently. With evolving regulatory changes, the BFSI sector needs to address various operational complexities in a time-bound and cost-effective manner. Compliance-as-a-Service model helps banks to be more agile in responding to evolving regulatory expectations in a cost-effective manner.

This product also features network-wise data segregation for dispute management and reversal of charges, offline and real-time data ingestion capability through API/DBLINK and SFTP. Also, it provides real-time analytics that helps banks in the optimisation of their ATM network.
