Quitting a large and successful organization like i-Flex is no easy decision, but when one perceives a large headroom for growth in the digital banking and mobility space, why wouldn’t an experienced hardcore technocrat quit to turn entrepreneur. This is the story of two entrepreneurs Joseph John and Sundararajan S., who played a significant role in i-Flex Solutions that delivered core banking solutions to over 500 customers worldwide. In 2011, they teamed to create i-exceed Technology Solutions. Located in Bengaluru, with offices in USA and Singapore, i-exceed operates across two major business lines — i.e., Products (Appzillon Development Platform) and Services like Business and Finance (BFSI) consulting services, Mobile Consulting Services Performance Management and Oil & Gas Technology Services.
“The rapid changes we witnessed in the mobility and digital space caught our attention and we wanted to play a major role in this revolution that is fueling changes worldwide. Our primary focus has been in the digital banking space. Appzillon’s strength lies in its technical prowess and we have established successful clients in our focus markets. The next step is to achieve greater penetration in these markets and become a leader by increasing the number of clients that are using our offering,” says Co-Founder and Director, Sundararajan.
Appzillon for digital banking solutions
Be it a developed country or a developing country, digital solutions in banking have slowly made manual banking process nonexistent. Thus, globally, for every bank there is a need for an enterprise that delivers banking software, which provides latest solutions to ease a customer’s access to the banking account and more importantly when the customer is on the move. On the other hand, banks use solutions to reduce branch workload and branch operation costs as customers can operate their accounts from anywhere. These latest solutions provide easy tracking of customer service requests and enhance customer reach and improve their service ratings.
“To empower banks to thrive in the digital race and stay ahead of their competition, we offer industry leading Appzillon Digital Banking Suite.

The solutions under the Appzillon Digital Banking are Mobile and Internet Banking for Retail and Corporate Customers, Social Media Banking, Branch and Doorstep Banking, Agency Banking, Management Dashboards, Relationship Management, and Operations Workflows. The channels supported by the suite include mobile, web, SMS, and USSD,” explains Sundararajan on how i-exceed services its banking clients.

It is a suite of ready-made solutions for building banking applications, executing core banking trans- —Sundararajans formations, optimizing enterprise performance, and providing mobility consulting services.

The company’s solutions are developed using Appzillon Development Suite, a mobile application development platform (MADP), that facilitates rapid development and deployment of apps.
