60% reduction in cash planning costs and penalties through data analytics


  • The client was facing disorderly and manual handoffs of cash. This created inefficiencies in collection & delivery timelines leading to cost implications
  • There was no consolidated view of cash across ATMs and branches. Hence the management was not able to optimize the cash rotation
  • The client wanted to increase the customer base by increasing cash capacity in branches


  • Defined a process for cash handling (collection and delivery) across branches and enabled the IT systems to utilize the data collected
  • Architected a data lake to create a single source of truth for cash positions across the bank branches
  • Developed multiple reports & dashboards like cashflow reports, daily cash held overs, penalty costs, ODP firming to enable the leadership (Branch Managers, Area Managers, POM, and Central) to make proactive decisions related to cash and drive the HCV strategically
  • Developed branch-specific cash position reports to enable branch managers to use cash efficiently and sign new customers
