Wipro Capitalizes on Cloud Capability to Boost Janalakshmi’s Microfinance ‘Liability Products’ Business

Bangalore, India, November 19, 2010 – Wipro Technologies, the Global Consulting, System Integration and Outsourcing Business of Wipro Limited (NYSE:WIT) today announced that the implementation of  a CRM solution, for Janalakshmi Financial Services, a leading national microfinance company, has been further extended to support Janalakshmi’s new ‘Retail Liability’ business.  This implementation uses a leading public cloud CRM application.

Wipro ‘s implementation of the cloud CRM solution is helping us grow at significant pace by complete automation of business processes at reduced cost and time and timely slicing of business data for better view and control of our new business”, says Ramesh Ramanathan, Founder and Chairman of Janalakshmi.
