Bharat Bank, a leading multi-state scheduled cooperative Bank with 64 branches in Maharashtra and Karnataka, had been the earliest implementer of CBS - in Aug 2003. In November 2013, the Bank officially kick-started modernization of its core banking platform. The Bank selected Finacle, the flagship core banking solution from Infosys as its target core banking engine. Both the bank and Infosys entrusted Modus to handle most of the implementation services. Modus solution consultants and technical team were part of the implementation program from day one of the Requirements Gathering milestone. Modus engineers took care of the various Finacle installations, supported requirements mapping, business process design, data migration, customizations, SIT, UAT and more importantly the Modus team burned the mid-night oil throughout the go-live and stabilization period. The Bank went live on 18th Aug 2014, in less than a year, which is quite rare in the industry.
The Bank CIO, Mr. Nityanand S Kirodian has always been appreciative of the Modus team. In the CIO’s words, “Modus team was fully committed and dedicated throughout the implementation process. Their involvement in the project was TOTAL & it was hard to distinguish Modus team from the Bank’s team. Infy, Modus & Bank were absolutely aligned on the common goals . It was a pleasure to work with them”.Mr. Nityanand S Kirodian
