BFSI Digital Innovators Award

Honoring digital leaders who are pushing the boundaries of innovation in the BFSI industry


The Indian BFSI industry is in the midst of a major digitization drive. Banks and insurance firms are using tablets to open accounts and process insurance claims. Loans delivered under 5 minutes, opening accounts with selfies, sending money using social mediums like Facebook and using apps to initiate insurance claims – these are just some of the examples of digital transformations happening in the Indian BFSI sector


To recognize and honor digital leaders in the BFSI community, Express Computer has announced an initiative to recognize innovators who are pushing the frontiers of digital innovation in India.


Nominations are invited from firms in the Indian BFSI sector. The awards are given away to Indian BFSI institutions or Indian subsidiaries of MNC BFSI institutions in the BFSI industry that demonstrate innovative use of a particular technology or a combination of technologies for distinct business benefit. This includes deploying a completely new solution or an innovative use of an existing technology to gain a competitive edge, improve operations, become more responsive to customers and partners or, simply, to add to the top or bottom line


The nominations will be shortlisted, reviewed, and judged by a panel of Editors from the Express Computer team, and the winners will be felicitated at the BFSI Technology Conclave, 2017, Pune, Conrad, (6-8 October 2017).
