Mastercard GBSC Automation Program
Driving Operational Efficiency with Robotics Process Automation
The Global Business Services Center (GBSC) is the Shared Services Organization (SSO) for Mastercard providing centralized global delivery of finance, transaction, accounting, billing, human resources operations, legal and franchise integrity services.
Our automation journey started when the GBSC was launched in 2012 by leveraging automation capabilities within Mastercard’s systems. This was followed by a focus on ad-hoc scripts. However, this didn’t satisfy our expectations of what automation could deliver, nor did it produce a better user experience, a key goal of the GBSC.
Our delivery approach is segmented into five phases, as described below. Our delivery timeframe depends on the system and process complexity, and varies between four and 12 weeks.
Having deployed RPA throughout the GBSC, we have seen improvements in many aspects of our operations. Some select processes include:
Given these efforts, the GBSC has created a powerful end-to-end automation solution leveraging RPA and Cognitive AI. These innovative solutions have greatly helped to automate manual and repetitive activities to promote quality, efficiency and productivity for enhanced business outcomes:
With the expertise, technology and process developed by the GBSC, tremendous opportunity exists to implement RPA in new areas of Mastercard and achieve business results. Data Science and cognitive field has already started providing value in forecasting, producing much better results than manually administered processes. The team has embraced both the innovation and challenges in this new age of technology disruption.
