Infosys, a global leader in consulting, technology, outsourcing and next-generation services, today announced the launch of the Finacle SME Enable to help banks enhance support and service for their small and medium business enterprise (SME) customers. The first-of-its-kind, mobile-based financial and business management solution is exclusively designed to help SMEs not only experience banking services on the move, but also manage their business operations efficiently.
• SME Enable is a unified application for both banking and non-banking services aimed at helping SMEs run their businesses efficiently
• SME Enable will provide a bank’s SME customers real-time access to their account information and relevant financial management tools to manage their day-to-day business operations in a self-service mode
• The solution will enable SMEs to grow their businesses through a host of features such as enterprise setup, automated banking transactions in supply chain, credit management, social connect, integrated alerts/analytical tools for financial management, and channels to seek expert advice
• Integration of the Infosys TradeEdge, a cloud-based retail trade platform, with SME Enable will help SME clients obtain complete visibility into their inventories and sales transactions, along with seamless integration of banking services
• For SME customers, this solution will enable a high degree of self-service and efficiency. For a bank, this will mean a significant reduction in time and effort required to serve their SME customers, while gaining an opportunity to build deeper relationships
