Centers of Excellence A look at some of the innovations and achievements
from across our global delivery centers.

Sarasota, USA We are helping one of the world’s leading shipping and logistics companies clean up their receivables for year-end using a risk-free approach designed by our Collections Center of Excellence where the client bears no cost unless historical metrics are surpassed. This plug and play model is ideal for optimizing cash flow and working capital at the end of the calendar or fiscal year.
Guatemala City, Guatemala Our team has deployed RPA “artifacts” that enable handling high peak volumes of transactions with minimal human intervention, increasing quality through additional validations, while decreasing employee overtime during holiday periods.
Campinas, Brasil In collaboration with our new RPA partner, UiPath, we have successfully implemented a pilot on an invoice automation solution for a manufacturing client that cuts the time and cost required to process invoices by more than half, while shifting experienced employees into more advanced roles.

Nanhai, China We successfully completed the first PMO-as-a-Service assignment for a new global client, where the team assisted with the SSC FAO workflow and put new standard operating procedures in place, resulting in very positive feedback from the client.
Bangalore, India Syngenta won the 2015 NASSCOM BPM “Pioneer” Award, which recognizes organizations that have been instrumental in the growth of the business services industry in India.
