TCS BaNCS Transforms Payments Operations at MUFG – Japan’s Largest Bank
TCS BaNCS will Help MUFG Bank Consolidate Operations, Drive Innovation and Support Future Growth
SINGAPORE | MUMBAI, December 20, 2018: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS), a leading IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, announced that it has successfully implemented a Regional Payments Hub – powered by TCS BaNCS for Payments – for MUFG Bank, Japan’s largest financial institution.
Ranked by Bloomberg as the eighth largest bank in the world, MUFG Bank has an extensive branch network throughout Japan and fifty other countries. As part of its transformation journey, it consolidated its extensive multi-entity, multi-country, cross-border payment processing operations, which were running on an array of disparate legacy systems, onto a Regional Payments Hub powered by TCS BaNCS for Payments.
With this transformation, MUFG Bank has realized its vision to streamline all payment operations across the entire Asia-Pacific region to drive future growth, improve efficiency and lay a strong foundation to enable innovation.
“MUFG Bank is happy that the Regional Payment System-based consolidation has become a reality. A project of this complexity was accomplished not only because TCS BaNCS was a strong fit to our requirements, but TCS’ delivery capability and proven methodology made collaboration across multiple geographies possible,” said a spokesperson for MUFG Bank.
“Payments is an exciting space, and a Business 4.0TM world offers opportunities aplenty for those organizations who transform their business and operating models to take advantage of the digital economy,” said Venkateshwaran Srinivasan, Vice President and Head, TCS Financial Solutions. “This has been a transformative journey for MUFG Bank and we are proud to be partnering with them in this mission critical program. They now have a strong platform, based on TCS BaNCS, that supports their future growth with agility and differentiation.”
