The e-Remittance Solution is one of the products offered by EFutures, the premier web and software development company.

Thousands of people currently work and live in a country that is not their home, and send funds regularly back to their families in their country. With Sri Lanka specialising in providing skilled services in foreign countries, most of the foreign exchange to Sri Lanka is received through remittances to banks.

The e-Remittance solution developed by EFutures facilitates inward remittance, through effective and efficient online services that allows the foreign correspondent banks to remit the funds into the domestic bank.

National Savings Bank, a premier Licensed Specialised Bank in Sri Lanka owned by the Government of Sri Lanka has deployed the e-Remittance solution to manage their inward remittances.  NSB has won the trust of people and come a long way to lead the country’s rupee savings market and is the only local bank to receive AAA Fitch Ratings for 8 consecutive years. The NSB has 16.3 million Sri Lankans banking with it.

The e-Remittance solution has also been implemented in another leading commercial bank in Sri Lanka. EFutures is in the process of discussing with two other leading banks to provide the e-Remittance solution.

The solution developed using the latest in technology includes key features  such as tracking remittances, high security, multiple foreign currency support, high user friendliness, periodic accounts statement generation and tracking all user operations. The e-Remittance solution is currently being used by two premier banks in Sri Lanka.

Director Prashan Nagendra noted that one of the key benefits of using the e-Remittance solution is that the banks will be saving funds which otherwise will have to be paid as commission to other parties over extensive periods of time.

The company is not only limited in providing the e-Remittance solution but has extensive expertise in providing online banking solutions and CRM solutions for the finance sector. EFutures have been able to win contracts from several Wall Street firms in the US to provide support services.
