How it Works
Portfolio DEFAULT RISK Monitoring
Is Inefficient And Costly.
Most of your time, effort, and budget goes into sourcing and underwriting new clients, but you still lose hundreds of thousands or millions in defaulted loans annually.
And that was before the global crisis.
In today’s world, you need real-time insights to manage your client portfolio and
mitigate your risk of losses.
We are a team who passionately believe there’s a better and more proactive way of monitoring your credit portfolio. We’re firm believers in TRaiCE’s ability to make life easier for lenders and investors everywhere and are on a mission to prove just that!
Less talk, more action
Fast forward to 2016, and the duo finally decided to walk the talk (and stress test their 25-year association!) by starting a business together. They combined their 20+ years of IT experience to co-found Menerva Software, a software company that creates custom data-driven solutions for businesses of all sizes. Their goal was to help their customers gain a competitive edge with their customized data analytics solutions. In the coming years, they carefully acquired a 30-member expert team and many long-term clients.
How we got there
With faith in their combined experiences and in their expert team of analysts and developers, the duo forged full steam ahead in their quest to build a customized, AI-augmented risk monitoring solution. The TRaiCE team worked in close collaboration with professionals in the financial industry to find out their pain points and design their application accordingly. This is what makes TRaiCE a tailor-made solution for financiers. Its features aren’t just a product of our collective imagination but were carefully designed to meet very specific needs in the financial sector.
To infinity and beyond!
TRaiCE is a groundbreaking tool that will preserve billions of dollars globally for the financial industry. In February 2021, it won the Qatar Fintech Hub Hackathon under the category: “Leveraging Emerging Technologies for Optimizing Cost and Reducing Risk.” With TRaiCE, Geetha and Sony have created a game-changing solution for lenders and investors around the world. Rather than rest on their laurels though, they are committed to improving their solution and expanding its capabilities such that it can help professionals from other industries too. The best is truly yet to come for us!
A long time ago…
About 30 years ago, two strangers met in the dusty town of Kollam, Kerala and became best friends. We’re, of course, talking about our founders Geetha Ramaswamy and Sony Gabriel, who met in engineering college and bonded over their love for classic rock music and solving puzzles. The pair always joked that they would one day start a business together.
The TRaiCE journey begins
Necessity, as they say, is the mother of all inventions. While working with numerous clients in the financial sector, Geetha and Sony, kept encountering a common problem. Financial clients, especially lenders and investors, constantly bemoaned their inability to be more proactive with their financial risk mitigation tactics. The co-founders learnt that current credit monitoring processes were heavily reliant on manual methodologies and used lagging risk indicators that sometimes left their clients feeling 10 steps behind.
“There must be a better way” thought Geetha and Sony.
And so, the journey began to build an early-warning risk mitigating system that would meet and address this very prescient pain point for financial institutions everywhere.
A proud moment
TRaiCE was officially launched on July 1, 2020. A very proud moment for us indeed!
American investor John Doerr once famously said,
“Ideas are easy, execution is everything, and it takes a team to win.”
The TRaiCE team lives and breathes by this motto. We know the value of an idea lies in its execution and not just in its inception. It is this focused ideology that allows us to be on the path of continuous innovation and execution. We also value teamwork and collaboration. TRaiCE was created in a collaborative environment, where team members were (and continue to be) valued and celebrated for their contributions.
For us, team work truly makes the dream work!
