WESTBOROUGH, Mass., – (December 5, 2017) –Virtusa Corporation (NASDAQ GS: VRTU), a global business consulting and IT outsourcing company that accelerates business outcomes for its clients, announced today it has been awarded a Bronze Stevie Award at The 2017 International Business Awards for Best New FinTech Product or Service of the Year for the company’s Smart ATM solution, a unique thin client application. Virtusa’s Smart ATM solution helps clients jumpstart their ATM platform initiatives while substantially reducing implementation time.
“The continuing evolution of digital banking has caused banks to examine the traditional ATM as an alternative channel for sales and marketing. Banks have realized they can drive cross-selling and more personalized services through ATMs, which continue to remain a top interaction point for most customers,” said Bob Graham, global solutions head, Banking and Financial Services, Virtusa. “Banks have the opportunity to leverage browser-based ATMs to offer select similar services and capabilities that exist in their online or mobile channels. This leads to a more seamless, consistent, and personalized customer experience across multiple interaction channels. Our Smart ATM solution is designed to help banks meet these requirements and we are proud to receive this recognition in acknowledgement of this.”
Virtusa’s Smart ATM is built using lightweight, open-source technologies to provide a browser-based solution for ATM services. Its architecture is tailored to support a bank’s micro-services API, enable an omni-channel ATM experience, and offer personalized financial products and services by utilizing an aggregate customer satisfaction index based on customer mood, demography, preferences, and profile.
Having operated a client-first banking practice for more than 25 years, Virtusa has delivered a variety of successful solutions to several global banks, top brokerage firms, and card and payment providers. As retail banks increasingly adopt digital banking approaches to support multiple delivery channels across different banking activities, Virtusa is helping banks rationalize their technology to reduce costs and adapt to evolving business requirements. Utilizing its collaborative and consultative approach, all-encompassing smart technology (Fintech/X-Tech) labs with unique sandbox environments, and a nimble team of experts, Virtusa enables clients to choose the right set of technologies to address their business challenges and capitalize on market opportunities.
