Commenting on the results, Raj Jain, Chairman & Managing Director, RS Software India Ltd. said, “The company is transitioning away from being a traditional software services outsourcing organization to being in the business of payments itself. This is a conscious strategy that has been articulated clearly in the investor communication section of the company website, and it is building the foundation for the company to have a recurring revenue business model. There are significant investments being made to leverage the growth in the payments space, and the loss in the short term will be well rewarded with a superior longer term business success. The Rs 180 crore cash reserves including net current asset  on the balance sheet are being deployed to ensure competitive wins in the payments industry in India and globally.
