For the website re-development Canara Bank initially issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) inviting vendors to participate in the tender. With a strict qualification and technical evaluation criteria the tender process ensured that only a company with sound financial and technical track record would qualify. PECS’s experience and industry expertise ensured the company qualified for the tender. Our strong track record and proposed solution gave our bid further impetus and resulted in Canara Bank awarding us the tender.
