As an end user of technology herself, she always felt there was a gap between what an end user needs and what banking technology provides. This gap has widened even further with all the innovation happening in the consumer technology space. The way the end customer of a bank uses technology, is not the same as ten years ago. It’s therefore a matter of time that this will disrupt the way banking is done globally.
Enterprise Tiger has evolved from this need Rekha has personally experienced as a Banker. Enterprise Tiger is suite of products that helps Banks and Financial institutions digitize easily, at the right price and without changing their core systems. It brings the dynamism of digital consumer technology to the enterprise software space, enabling Banks to engage with their customer, employees and channels in a Mobile, Nimble and Secure manner, directly improving the top and bottom line.
