Brief Look at the Challenges and the Industry in itself
Speaking about the industry, the CEO and Founder of MATRiX, Anil Bandari exclaims “Both Payment and Card industry is changing and evolving so rapidly these days that it is very difficult to keep pace with it. Evolution in the last 10 years has been exponential compared to prior years and in my personal view, the exponential trend will continue for years to come before it tapers off. I see data showing up as a prominent source to tap into and as of today the data is being leveraged in day-to-day decision-making process in these industries.”
He highlights some of the key challenges that companies face in the industry:
- Poor or sub-optimal use of precious source of data in Financial, Retail and Healthcare industry.
- Ineffective credit loss mitigation and predictive analytics with weak profitability-based strategies.
- No or very little prescriptive analytics based on on-us and off-us industry data. Ÿ Inefficient operations (inventory, pricing, supply chain, marketing, transportation, data analytics) in Small & Medium Enterprise (SME) companies.
- It is difficult to deploy and integrate models into native technology platforms seamlessly. Transforming Data into Expert Decisions MATRiX incepted from Anil’s inspiration, who has extensively worked with the data particularly in Payment and Card systems and his goal was to leverage this data across various domains.
“We all in the data science team at MATRiX have always been fascinated by the transaction data, its volume, frequency, signals, noise and outliers generated in Payment and Card industry and have been building analytics solutions in various domains like credit risk, fraud risk, customer analytics, customer centricity and day-to-day decisioning using the data,” mentions Anil.
It was this fascination that led the company to build some proprietary algorithms to transform data into machine form. It also helped the company build custom characteristics libraries based on timestamp, transaction type, geography, currency and merchant data. Finally, it was this fascination that facilitated the development of genetic algorithm, machine learning, deep learning and goal programming based transaction models, which are exceptionally dominant, robust and efficient for large volume and high dimensional data.

However, there were few banks, retail and a healthcare chain, who gave us this chance and we converted it into trust and long-term relationships.

With the dedication, professionalism and hard work of team to deliver the best to clients, MATRiX provided analytics solutions to clients which far exceeded their expectations every time.
