the principle of treating every client as if it is the only one we have," says Talwar. In one instance, a real estate agency required a Full Payment Certification (FPC) solution to ensure all the bills of a property are paid, for a transaction to take place. Previously, the agency staff had to make sure that the bills were paid before the certification. The company helped the agency to build a full payment certificate application supporting all the reviews and checks. "90 percent of FPCs are now done online bringing down the human resource cost and a higher ROI," explains Talwar.

Catalyst Consulting plans to focus on predictive analytics that can help them analyze issues beforehand and take preventative measures. Keeping pace with the ongoing trends in the marketplace, the company is also looking at the benefits of IoT as a solution. "We want to explore IoT to support a number of business functions with minimum or no human intervention," asserts Talwar.
