What we do



One of the core functionalities for any company is the ability to price and bill their clients for services rendered. It is crucial to charge your customers in line with the complex agreements signed between company and customer.

Banks have additional complexity and challenges in this space due to the lack of harmonization between multiple product lines, tightened regulations, ever-increasing demand for digitalization, market competition and price pressure. 
Historically, Banks have taken the ability to charge for granted due to inbuilt capability to debit customers’ accounts. Many banks are still relying on the siloed pricing and billing solutions which are not adequate to meet the current demanding digitalized banking world; both in retail and commercial space.
