oing Digital - what does it mean to you and your organization?
For me, I believe that Digital is a Culture and not just Technology. Digital Transformation is a conscious movement from point solutions that deliver incremental value to integrated process and technology solutions that provide transformational outcomes in terms of Customer Experience, Business Efficiency, and Innovation. At ABFRL, Digital Transformation provides opportunities for our organization to acquire new customers, engage better with existing customers and reduce the cost of operations along with various other benefits that have a positive influence from a revenue and margin perspective. It is about looking beyond marginal enhancements and rethink processes, creating a connected engagement enabled by meaningful application of Technology. It is not only about customer centricity, innovation, data intelligence and new value propositions, but also about streamlining processes, reduce costs and improve efficiencies across the transactional cycle by transforming.
