    Receiving the BAM Awards for Corporate Social Responsibility

    It was a very rewarding time for us in India, this February.

    We have always been a socially responsible organisation, ready to extend a helping hand to the community we work with. Recognising this, the BAM Awards and Recognitions committee honoured us for our excellent contributions towards social initiatives and activities. We received this honour at the Indian Brand Convention held in New Delhi.

    Proud recipient of 3 NIB awards

    Charity begins at home. True to this adage, we first respect and pay attention to the needs of our employees and customers, before reaching out. Through exceptional internal and external communications, we have added value to the lives of our stakeholders.

    Not just one or two! We got honoured with three prestigious NIB awards from PRCI (Public Relation Council of India) for 'Financial Inclusion', 'Best Annual Report' and 'Best In-House Journal'. The financial inclusion award was presented for spreading financial literacy to all strata of society.

    At the Digithon Mela

    Speaking of spreading financial literacy, we also participated in Digithon Mela, to create awareness on digital payments and XPAY wallet.

    Honoured with the NBSL Awards

    As a trusted companion for millions of travellers across India, our services have been recognised. We were deemed to be the most deserving organisation for the NBSL Awards 2017 in the category of 'Asia's Best Brand of the Year - Travel Sector', at Crowne Plaza Hotel, New Delhi.

    16th anniversary celebrations of Karimnagar branch

    Our celebration did not end here. We had fun at the 16th anniversary celebration at the Karim Nagar branch.

    Educating customers on usage of cashless wallets

    India welcomed 2017 with hopeful anticipations on going cashless and becoming digitally enabled. Supporting the cause and with a mission to go 100% digital, we decided to prepare our customers for the same.

    After the workshop in one of the villages on going cashless

    We participated and conducted several workshop sessions on cashless transactions and the usage of XPay Wallet. Educating people on the ease of transacting via digital modes was indeed challenging.

    Educating customers on healthy finances body and soul

    We also met our customers from Erode, Rajaji Nagar and Virudhachalam to spread awareness, on maintaining healthy finances, body and soul.

    During our blood donation camp

    As part of us being socially responsible, we conducted blood donation camps and yoga workshops.

    Distributing computers in Mancombu School

    Understanding that students are the future pillars of digital India, we distributed computers and classroom aids to students at Avitoom Tirunal Higher Secondary School, Mancombu.

    Providing educational scholarships

    We also provided educational scholarships to meritorious students who were underprivileged from Government schools at Adimaly and Mullassery.

    Striving for Polio free India

    Eradicating polio has been a worldwide effort since many years. Supporting India’s vision to be certified as a polio-free nation, by World Health Organisation (WHO), we conducted pulse polio camps in Hyderabad on National Immunisation Day.

    Regional Office inauguration at Kannur

    Customer service being our currency, we wanted to spread our wings to service more customer. So , we opened and inaugurated a new regional office at Kannur and clubbed the New Year celebration with it.

    Agra branch inauguration

    To serve customers better, we also shifted the Agra branch to Shop No.12, 13, Building no. 18 /149B Kareem Complex, Opposite Pizza Hut, Fatehabad Road Agra- 282001.

Emerging resilient after the demonetisation ruffle, India had an adorable December this year. Youth power ruled the roost, cracking social and communal issues through social media and technology. Speaking of technology, the way our youth handled finances, payments, money transfer through digital wallets was beyond amazing. They were practical ambassadors for digital, cashless India. We wanted to do our bit to help them understand the nuances of cash wallet usage, so that they can derive maximum benefits from the same. We reached out and conducted digitalisation training programmes and currency workshops for the students at United Theology College (UTC) in Bangalore Mount Carmel School in Mangalore and at the Kerala Vyapari Vyavasayi Ekopana Samiti (KVVES) in Kotakkal . Understanding the importance of education and the gripes of the meritorious but underprivileged students, we provided scholarships to children from St. Joseph’s GLP & UPS school in Manacherry.

Wondering why and how we are qualified to educate our youth on digital wallets. Here you go!

We are recipients of India’s highest independent civilian honour, Skoch New Economy Award 2016, for our XPay Cash Wallet. Our digital wallet was rated as the 3rd best among top 100 nominated projects, in serving the country well with the digital payment facilities.
We also won the VPN IBE Award 2016, which is the Business Excellence award for Customer Focus.

But isn’t travel the best teacher?

It broadens our mind, develops cultural empathy and helps young people develop tolerance to diversity, which is the pressing need of the hour! Realising all this, we organised an extravaganza of 10 day tour package (Delhi-Agra-Shimla and Manali) for the students of medical college, Trivandrum. The students were delighted to the core.

A healthy fit body is of utmost importance to support a healthy mind. What better way to develop a fit sound body, than play football and cricket? That’s why we sponsored the football tournament at Bambrana Kumbla and the cricket match organised by the Indian Dental Association- Dakshina Kannada. And we also conducted a free eye check-up camp and distributed medicines to customers as part of our CSR initiatives.

Motherhood (and indeed fatherhood too) is a life-changing experience. The first few weeks of being a new parent can be an emotional and anxious time. Thankfully, there exists a host of baby-related technologies that can make life easier for worried new mummies. Here, in alphabetical order, is our list of the top technologies for parents of small babies.

Breastfeeding app: There are lots of apps available which allow you to keep track of nursing sessions, the side you nursed on last, and alternate breast and bottle feedings. A popular app you can try is “Baby Tracker: Nursing”.

A new mom Technologies that can make your life better
Online forums: Online communities have come into their own, lending much needed advice and support. “British Mums Dubai” is an example. The website is aimed primarily at expat mums and offers baby advice, weaning tips, competitions and access to a community of mums who’ve already been there and are ready with helpful advice. It’s linked to their Facebook group, which you can request to join.

Digital Ear Thermometer: You will use it many times every day, to check whether that crying is because your baby is ill or just fussing! You can also use it at night without waking the baby up if he or she feels hot. It’s not glamorous, but is an essential piece of technological kit.

Itzbeen Pocket Nanny: This hand-held device helps you record and monitor your baby’s naps, feedings and diaper changes- essential for those sleep-deprived weeks where you can’t remember the last time you changed your baby!

White Noise Machine: There are many of these available, and all emit white noise similar to that heard in the womb, to help shush your baby to sleep. A popular option is the Baby Shusher, which emits a constant rhythmic shushing sound designed to mesmerise your baby into a calm sleep.

WiFi baby monitor: The days of the static “radio” baby monitor are long gone. Baby monitors have revolutionised in the digital age, and now use WiFi, 4G and smartphones so you can easily keep an eye on your sleeping baby from anywhere. The best ones offer high-security, password-protected streaming to keep you and your baby secure.

There are many technological advances to help make your parenting experience better. But perhaps the most essential piece of technology is a data-enabled smartphone, whether to google a strange rash, look up baby products, or simply while away the midnight feeds with some gentle browsing.

Happy parenting!
