TechGraph: In the rapidly evolving realm of document processing for trade finance and commercial banking, how does Impactsure distinguish itself from competitors, and what key innovations has the company introduced to stay ahead in the market?

Dharmarajan Sankara Subrahmanian: Banking globally is going through a transformational shift. Banks, financial institutions, and enterprises are becoming more like technology companies and want to be agile.

Traditionally, processing documents has always been a manually intensive, time-consuming process that is fraught with errors and risks of noncompliance. This is especially true in Trade finance and commercial banking where the transactions are large and complex.

Documents are a critical part of banking and financial services in general. It can be said that documents are the backbone of the industry. It is on the strength of documents and documentary evidence that banks and financial institutions make decisions to approve or reject transactions and deals. Banks are competing heavily with each other to offer quicker and hyper-personalised services to their customers.

While there has been tremendous modernization in retail banking, commercial banking, and trade finance are now catching up. New technologies like MLA, AI, NLP, and Generative AI are now being used to make processes simpler, more efficient, and less prone to non-compliance while improving turnaround times and resulting in customer delight.
