With 2 million customers, they stand as a testament to their belief and are among the 10 companies, the sole, from Maharashtra, to secure a ‘Small Finance Bank’ license from the RBI.

The Small Finance Bank, in its journey towards growth, required an efficient Hybrid communication solution to support its extensive development plan. A shift from wired communication to VoIP-based communication was necessary to ensure swift and efficient operations, particularly during banking hours, demanding a seamless connection. Additionally, the requirement of Office and On-field connectivity of the employees had also to be met.

ย To elaborate on their challenges:

  • Handling distinct protocols: Connecting with both existing and diverse telecom networks involves the management of different protocols, a task that can be burdensome, time-consuming, and energy-intensive.
  • Scalability and Redundancy as a feature: They needed a solution that could adapt to future requirements seamlessly, ensuring easy scalability for upcoming applications. Moreover, incorporating redundancy (backup) was essential to guarantee flawless operations, particularly during crucial banking hours.
  • Specified Timeframe: The transition and modernization had to be accomplished concurrently within a specified time limit.

Matrix Comsec thoroughly examined the communication opportunities and challenges faced by the Small Finance Bank, devising a long-term solution tailored to their needs. The proposed solution was built upon the foundation of leveraging the existing infrastructure, incorporating Matrix Telecom Solutions within a specified timeframe. This encompassed the deployment of an embedded IP-PBX and the integration of a VoIP-PRI Gateway, optimizing communication processes and preparing them for future requirements.
