The Meticulousness of efforts to ensure customer delight by each of the team member during the course of the project is appreciable. - Data Archival Project
Overall we are happy with the services provided by Nelito. The implementation team is sensitive to our support requirements and does a good job.
We are extremely thankful to the whole team who have devotedly committed and created this excellent database. Much of our time was wasted in data retrieval from i link where we were facing lots of issues.
You have given us an awesome product which is superior to our Finacle itself in its display capabilities. The great idea of taking pdf/word/excel option is simply superb. Merging the party code and Finacle CIF and account numbers are another feather in the cap.
