Presto Technologies

Connecting customers through web and mobile apps 

PRESTO started with the idea that no business looking to embrace enterprise on mobile should find technology intimidating.

In today’s competitive environment, businesses need to not only get their online presence right but also benefit from operational efficiencies best served by customised SW platforms.

The business was founded in Bangalore, India and further set up in the UK with the aim of scaling internationally. A team of technology and software experts based in Bangalore is headed by an experienced management team and advised by a multinational and highly experienced board.




Company Name: Presto Technologies
Date: June 2019

In the UK, PRESTO is headed by Sagar Patel who has a corporate background in the telecoms industry of over 20 years and an educational background in engineering.



Connecting customers through web and mobile apps 

PRESTO was tasked with providing technical consultancy, design, flow mapping, SW development, testing and support as part of automating the operational complexities associated with beneficiary identification for a Debt Issuer Service provider as part of a major international debt restructuring deal.

This also included tracking unlisted asset trades between holders and automating the calculations of entitlements for the holders as part of the tech solution, a process that has been able to be automated for the first time ever.

PRESTO was able to deliver this within strict time deadlines and provided a modern design responsive website where claimants were able register, understand the claims process, provide proof of holdings and view their entitlement status and amounts.

The process, user and submissions were managed by the back-end part of the solution by approved admins who were able to view, collaborate, manage and report of the multitude of claims easily, securely and quickly.


Connecting customers through web and mobile apps 

PRESTO designs, develops, hosts and maintains custom software  platforms for enterprises looking to offer mobile and web e-commerce.

Addressable markets include hospitality sector, guest concierge services, modern telecoms self-service app solutions, debt capital market unlisted assets and claims management and mobile on-demand service solutions.

The PRESTO advantage comes from coupling together ready-to-go front end modular components sitting on top of a cloud SaaS back end providing customers with speed of deployment, a rapidly scalable solution and lower costs.
