Mindtrees Expertise Corporate Banking Portals

Online banking in corporate banks is still at a very nascent stage. Most banks provide minimum service through disparate online channels, across product lines. A majority of them are organized as per product lines – cash management, corporate finance and leasing. Each business unit tends to have it’s own customer channel. This makes it difficult for the CIOs / CMOs to present a unified and coherent user experience. Adding mobile to the mix only increases the woes of corporate users.

Of late, there is a marked change. This is both due to customers’ demands and banks’ own needs to maximize business from corporates. Most of the banks are looking to implement a next generation customer portal. The demand may arise due to various reasons: need for mobile enablement, better information management, better marketing opportunities and better performance. Nevertheless, CIOs / CMOs have started driving large scale reengineering, if not transformation projects in this space.
