The BFSI sector of India is no longer what it used to be. Modernizing banking processes has led to phenomenal innovations in the digital banking sector, which has given a significant rise to the fintech sector of India. Ever since the pandemic has struck us, the need for remote banking using laptops and smartphones has accelerated. The fintech industry is forecasted to have a whopping valuation of $150-160 billion by 2025. The competition in the fintech markets has ramped up, with many tech-based companies offering cutting-edge digital banking solutions. One such rapidly growing brand is Celusion Technologies.

Celusion Technologies, established in 2004, with a modest kick-start of just 2 employees and a small 200 sq. ft. office. The leaders at Celusion, including their MD and CEO, Praveen Paulose, had a clear vision for building future enterprises. With a firm belief in “Possible is Everything,” a small start-up has turned into a prominent place in the fintech industry of India. Today the company has over 100 employees with a 3000 sq. ft. modern infrastructure. Celusion Technologies has worked with about 20 big industry players, including 3 of the Top 10 Stockbrokers, 2 of the Top 5 NBFCs and multiple Large cap companies in India.

The Unified Account Opening (UAO) service facilitated by Celusion’s software can help you instantly activate your Demat, Trading, Bank Account, Loan Account, or Insurance Accounts.

A loan application that traditionally takes 2-3 days for submission can be submitted in just 30 minutes using UAO. Moreover, Celusion strives to create a partner-agnostic environment for fintech-based APIs simplifying customer onboarding and digital lending. These APIs bring added value and cost-effectiveness for the enterprise customer.
