Zeta is the world’s first Omni Stack for credit cards. A single stack for Origination, Processing, FRM, Rewards, Loans, APIs, and Apps
Zeta intends to replace many legacy systems in use by banks for processing payments. Banks need to leapfrog into an era of connected devices and omnipresent commerce. Banking should become an integral part of the commerce and enterprise systems, thereby enabling seamless consumer and business transactions. The average number of interactions an account holder may have with a bank would increase to 12-15 per day in the near-term from the current average of 3-4 transactions per month. These could grow to an unimaginably large number in the future. Most banking systems aren’t designed for this scale. In many ways, these systems are limiting the imagination of the key stakeholders at the banks. We want this changed fundamentally, in an interoperable and regulatorily compliant manner.We build large-scale transaction processing systems that can work with many current and future payment networks. We build applications that help banks realize the value of this new approach early. We also help banks to rapidly deliver the value of these applications to their customers.
Zeta’s platform accelerates the phenomenon of digital native neobanking, unbundling and rebundling of banking and invisible payments. The platform enables the new-age financial institutes to have faster go-to-market. Enables the existing financial institutes with the much-required capabilities to partner with the FinTechs and to offer a suite of modern banking experiences.  Zeta is founded by Bhavin Turakhia and Ramki Gaddipati. Bhavin has also been the Founder/ Co-Founder of Directi, Radix, Ringo, Codechef, and Flock.  Zeta products have been recognized as the Best Prepaid Card in 2018. Zeta is recognized as the Fastest Growing Company of the Year, Fin-tech Rising Star Award, and India’s Most Innovative Top 50 Product Companies by various trade journals. Zeta is a PCI DSS/3DS, ISO 27001 and SOC 2 company. Zeta has been valued at $1.45 billion in a recent fundraising round.
