TransUnion, a leading global information and insights company, today announced the opening of a new functional center in Pune as an expansion of its existing global capability center (GCC) in Chennai. TransUnion GCC also plans to rapidly expand its workforce by approximately 50% across the Chennai and Pune locations in the next 12 months. According to the company release, the new center will deliver technology solutions to the global TransUnion enterprise and complement the Chennai location, which offers a full stack of capabilities to fuel innovation and act as a catalyst for customer success.
The new center is located at Nagar Road, Yerawada, Pune, and TransUnion plans to hire diverse talent with expertise in data science and analytics, digital technologies, mobile computing, intelligent automation, etc.
“The investment in this new center will help us harness the best talent pool available to enable a wide range of technology and business operations for the global enterprise,” said Debasis Panda, Vice President, Operations, TransUnion. “The Pune center is part of a wider initiative which also sees TransUnion concurrently opening a new global capability center in South Africa.”
In 2018, TransUnion set up its first global capability center in Chennai. From a pilot team of 20 associates, it has grown to more than 900 associates. “The success of the center in Chennai helped pave the way for the additional investment in other markets,” said Eric Hess, Executive Vice President for Global Operations, TransUnion.
Standing up global capability centers across multiple continents allows TransUnion to take advantage of time zones, expand language coverage and leverage talent globally. The GCCs strengthen TransUnion’s operational resilience and enhance the global operating model through an ‘always-on’ workforce leading TransUnion to become a destination for top talent.
