Harishanker: There has not been a better time for SaaS in the Indian context. The Indian market is exponentially diversified with remote jobs, remote learning, and digital payments. All of these can benefit from the use of one or more SaaS solutions. This is why we have also seen huge traction in the SaaS space with multiple SaaS startups becoming unicorns. And this is just the beginning, I believe the best is yet to come.
Rajeev: How do you look at the demand for your SaaS products in the BFSI sector? What are your plans to tap opportunities in this space?
Harishanker: The demand for SaaS products in the BFSI sector has grown to heaps. With the industry prospering towards being more and more cashless and work going paperless, SaaS solutions have become all the more paramount for the BFSI segment.
Not just the operational excellence and enabling digital transactions, the benefits of SaaS for BFSI go beyond these, enhancing employee productivity in this modern age of digital era. This is apt for elevating the experience of customers as well. A few of the factors that speed up banking operations on a day-to-day basis are mobile applications, digital wallets, and banking kiosks.
SaaS products like Scalefusion play a vital role in safeguarding the data and functional devices used in this domain. BFSI involves a lot of sensitive information including finance, personal identity information, bank account details, card details, etc, it needs to ensure security at all times. Scalefusion MDM’s kiosk lockdown capability provides extensive kiosk management features to BFSI and provides much-needed security, which is of prime importance for the BFSI sector. Scalefusion also provides on-premise deployment for organizations that are skeptical about making an extreme shift to a cloud model.
NuovoPay, which is the device financing enablement platform from the ProMobi SaaS product portfolio, helps companies in BFSI to finance smartphones with an assurance of timely EMI repayments with its remote locking technology. This way it backs the entire financing process and makes it profitable for financial institutions and customers both.
We plan to expand our customer base for our products in India. Our aim is to make mobility more affordable and accessible to everyone - at both enterprises and individual levels. And our products help in achieving this.
Rajeev: What are your growth and expansion plans?
Harishanker: We are looking at setting our foot in the unexplored territories, across diverse geographies and industries. We plan on sailing with Scalefusion to tap niche markets and businesses. With the addition of essential feature capabilities like Windows Patch Management, we are already looking at enhancing the feature value of our product. In the coming years, we plan on introducing Mobile Threat Defense as well. Apart from this, we are also working rigorously to expand our OEM partnership base to set the wheels for our Scalefusion Infinity Partner Program. All these together would help us build a strong geographic presence.
