How is tech central to your business? And why do you think it’s important to see the Indian finance sector to embrace tech?
PaySprint is a Fintech. FINTECH is a combination of the words “financial” and “technology,” is a relatively new term that applies to any emerging technology that helps consumers or financial institutions deliver financial services in newer, faster ways than was traditionally available.
India’s finance sector has undergone a paradigm shift in the past two decades―evolving from physical banking to becoming digital anchors. It has witnessed a transition from the simple automation of paperwork in bank branches to today’s branchless banking paradigms that use new-age contactless technologies. role of technology has evolved from being a mere cog in the strategic framework of companies to driving, shaping and redefining business models and revenue streams.
Democratic access to the latest technological capabilities, coupled with the breakneck speed of change, has destroyed industry barriers to entry and allowed tech-centric start-ups to compete with Financial Services (FS) giants. In fact, the pace of technological advancement has led these developments to be viewed less as enablers and more as positive disruptors.
What made you choose such an offbeat, unconventional and interesting career?
India is expected to be a 10 trillion dollar economy in a few years and banking & fintech are going to play a big role in achieving them. This has made me quite excited to be part of the Indian Fintech Growth story and want to contribute in the mission to Help Bharat Transact.
Let’s together make India the next Super Power.

Have you integrated blockchain, AI, Big Data, Analytics to set up PaySprint? How can the finance and BFSI sector make the maximum out of technology’s potential?
At PaySprint our endeavour has been to work with the latest technological trends especially with blockchain, AI + ML and Big Data.
India’s Finance & BFSI sector is set to move to a transformational space in the next decade. With technology increasingly becoming an imperative in the household and digital servicing domains, the day is not far when customers are likely to place their trust in robots or artificial ‘chat-bots’. Along with advancements in applications of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Block Chain and Robotics, FinTech seems to be the next big driver in a few years. We believe that the advent of FinTech will change current profitability metrics and enable much enhanced operational efficiency, rental savings, digital currency, robotics, quality control and analytics-driven collections strategies to replace existing KPIs. The time is right for the industry to be forward-looking in integrating upcoming technology and leveraging Data & Analytics to become much ‘smarter’ in identifying and servicing customers’ needs.
Future for PaySprint.
Our ambition is to become a Unicorn.
