Chennai-Pune: TransUnion, a global information and insights company has opened a new functional centre in Pune as an expansion of its existing global capability centre (GCC) in Chennai.
The new centre 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 centre 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 centre 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, VP – Operations, TransUnion.
“The Pune centre is part of a wider initiative which also sees TransUnion concurrently opening a new global capability centre in South Africa,” added Panda.
In 2018, TransUnion set up its first global capability centre in Chennai. From a pilot team of 20 associates, it has grown to more than 900 associates. In 2020, the Chennai capability centre has been certified by the Great Place to Work Institute as “India’s Top 50 Best Workplaces”, “India’s Top 50 Best Workplaces for Women”, and “India’s Top 25 Best Workplaces in IT and IT-BPM”.
“The success of the centre in Chennai helped pave the way for the additional investment in other markets,” said Eric Hess, EVP – Global Operations, TransUnion.
