The Excel Story
“Upon return from the United States, I saw the opportunity to meet the IT needs of many financial institutions in the region because of the explosive economic growth in Asia. I wanted to start the best of breed software company to address these needs and to develop the best solutions to meet the demands. I named the Company, Excel, as an inspiration by the book, In Search of Excellence.
As Excellers, we emphasize on:
* Product quality
