I look forward to helping Volante disrupt the marketplace and emerge as the dominant provider of innovative solutions and services to the financial industry”. 

Speaking about the changes made to the leadership team, Vijay Oddiraju, CEO of Volante Technologies commented, “The digital transformation opportunity in financial services is colossal – payments alone is a $2tn industry, with transaction volumes set to double over the next decade. As we grow rapidly and increase our market share, it is vital that we invest in our organisation to ensure we continue to deliver excellence and reliability for our clients today and into the future. Harp and Deepak bring unique qualities and experience to Volante and I am delighted to see them both join the team”.

Speaking about his new role at the firm, Deepak commented, “It is clear that financial institutions large and small are looking for agile solutions to drive their digital transformation journeys. One such innovation is the rise of payments as a service, delivered in the cloud. Providing access to a unified on-demand cloud service alleviates the challenges of onboarding and complexity, and allows customers to benefit from reduced hardware, software and related people costs so they can focus on delivering value-added services to their end clients and remain competitive. I am pleased to bring my track record in SaaS to help Volante and its customers achieve these goals”.
