Global Capability Centers (GCCs) have emerged as pivotal enablers of transformation, driving the strategic agendas of enterprises towards innovation, digital maturity, and operational excellence. These centers, evolving from back-office operations to front-line innovation hubs, are at the heart of redefining business models in the digital age. This evolution positions GCCs as strategic partners rather than just operational hubs.

Tech Enablement at the Forefront

At the core of this transformation is the harnessing of new-age services that span from Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Data Analytics (D&A) to Sales Enablement and Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) initiatives. With its profound expertise and comprehensive solutions, Yash Technologies stands at the forefront of empowering GCCs to navigate the complexities of digital transformation effectively.

The evolution narrative of GCCs in India by EY showcases a market burgeoning to a $46 Billion ecosystem, home to over 1580 centers and witnessing a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.4%. This growth is propelled by digital native talent and a shift from service-centric models to solution-oriented strategies.

Meeting Market Demands:  GCC Strategic Mastery

Digital & Analytics (D&A)

D&A stands as the cornerstone for GCCs, enabling businesses to unlock actionable insights, drive decision-making, and foster a culture of data-driven innovation. The transformative power of D&A enables enterprises to leverage big data, analytics, and AI to streamline operations, enhance customer experiences, and uncover new growth opportunities.

GCCs play a crucial role in fortifying the digital infrastructure, ensuring data integrity, and safeguarding against emerging cyber threats, providing the resilience and assurance businesses need to operate confidently for a secure, trusted, and compliant digital ecosystem.

Robotic Process Automation (RPA):
RPA is a transformative technology that automates repetitive tasks, enhancing operational efficiency and productivity. GCCs harness RPA to streamline processes, reduce human error, and free up valuable resources for strategic tasks. This automation journey is pivotal in achieving operational excellence, improving accuracy, accelerating service delivery, and driving cost efficiencies across business functions.

AI-driven services, from predictive modeling to natural language processing, enhance efficiency across functions and open avenues for transformative opportunities that redefine customer engagement and operational agility.

Legal, Sales Enablement, Marketing & Communications and ESG
Services that once hovered on the periphery of GCC functions, like procurement and legal, have been revolutionized to incorporate strategic sourcing, advanced analytics, and comprehensive supplier management. Similarly, sales enablement within GCCs has transcended traditional boundaries to foster collaboration, align sales strategies with business goals, and ultimately drive revenue growth through innovative pipeline management and channel segmentation insights.

Environmental sustainability has also emerged as a key focus area, with GCCs playing a pivotal role in embedding sustainable practices within organizational strategies. Through initiatives like carbon footprint reduction planning and circular economy mapping, GCCs are contributing to a greener planet and positioning their enterprises favorably in the eyes of eco-conscious investors and consumers.
