Kotak Bank is an Indian private sector bank founded in 2003 and headquartered in Mumbai, India. The bank offers banking products and financial services for corporate and retail customers in the areas of personal finance, investment banking, life insurance, and wealth management.
Kotak Bank was dealing with delays in the customer onboarding process due to physical document submission, verification, etc. This resulted in huge paper usage and traversal of tons of files to and fro from the respective teams. This movement also delayed the approvals on each of them and resulted in inconsistencies in customer data during the information gathering phase itself.
