The Big Story

Intellect Design Arena has announced the launch of the Intellect Digital Core (IDC) for Cooperative Banks in the Indian market.

Cooperative banks play a crucial role in the Indian financial system. Over the years, they have encountered several obstacles: limited access to modern financial services, competition, and regulatory constraints. However, advanced technology can help them compete in the rapidly evolving digital banking landscape.

Ramanan SV, CEO-India & South Asia, Intellect Design Arena, said, “We are excited to bring Intellect Digital Core to revolutionise the way Cooperative Banks operate in India. Being made in India, we understand the patterns of the Indian market and the evolving demands and expectations of customers in Tier 2 & 3 cities. The technology is composed of the ‘First Principles’ Technology Suite, enabling banks to become digital enterprises, thereby driving exponential growth. With a legacy spanning three decades and guided by an institutionalised design thinking approach, Intellect continues to reinforce its technology leadership in the financial technology space. This product specifically designed for cooperative banks, is testimony to that.
