Smart Automation for Trade Finance


Trade Finance is essential to the global economy. Increasing operational complexity and regulatory compliance requirements have made customer experience and profitability a challenge. Corporates are also moving towards open account trade, and reducing their reliance on bank intermediated trade finance instruments. Trade Finance activities are highly process oriented, document intensive and require scores of highly skilled and semi-skilled people to collaborate and manage operations to ensure seamless processing.
