Trade finance is plagued by operational inefficiencies with 80-90% of processes being manual and paper based. It also functions in a dynamic and stringent regulatory environment. Further, due to the lack of proficiency in data reporting and analysis, banks are unable to effectively detect revenue leakage and identify new revenue-generating customer segments. There are also challenges in retaining talented personnel, maintaining quick turnaround times, and ensuring superior service delivery.
