Teleperformance partners with Mastercard to Optimize Business Performance and Digital Transformation for Fintechs, Financial Services, Payments, and Digital Players
Partnership will initially launch in Latin America, making it easier for companies to transform their business services
SÃO PAULO AND MÉXICO CITY —March 23, 2023 —Teleperformance, the global leader in outsourced digital integrated business services, today announced it is partnering with Mastercard, (NYSE: MA), a global technology company in the payments industry, to provide bundled best-in-class business and payment services to rising companies within the banking and financial services, payments and technology industry in Latin America to help strengthen the payments ecosystem in the region.
Teleperformance is now part of Mastercard’s network of partners and will offer Latin America’s emerging financial service and technology companies a suite of front and back-office capabilities and digital automation service processes – including customer onboarding and customer care, fraud prevention, transaction validation, collections, customer acquisition, and loyalty and security – that otherwise direct time, attention and essential resources away from critical growth initiatives. These services will be offered alongside Mastercard’s transformative secure payment processing services.
“We are the leading solution for end-to-end digitally driven customer experience for over two-thirds of the most valuable brands in the world, and partnering with Mastercard is a natural next step,” said Miranda Collard, Global Chief Client Officer. “Starting in Latin America, together we want to enable worldwide business services support to empower customers and raise their satisfaction as part of a connected channel approach.”
Latin America is currently the fastest-growing region for digital players and emerging payment companies. For most financial services companies, having a differentiated end-to-end value proposition is key to earning consumer trust. These companies normally enter the market by focusing on solving customers' key pain points within the financial system, such as simplifying and enhancing day-to-day banking experience. However, with rapid growth comes the need to increase business services capabilities and operational infrastructure.
“Offering a world-class customer experience for end-users is part of the core value proposition any successful financial institution brings to the market. As the partner of choice for leading fintechs, financial services, and beyond across Latin America and the Caribbean, our focus is to propel our partners toward greater success,” said Stefany Bello, Senior Vice President, Digital Partnerships, Retail & Commerce, Mastercard Latin America & Caribbean. “For early-stage companies, the cost of hiring and servicing can represent a significant challenge. Together with Teleperformance, we are taking the next steps in promoting innovation within banking, while ensuring security and business optimization.”
The banking and financial services industry has seen a rise in the adoption of digital payments and wallets, contactless banking, and a multitude of credit offerings. This transformation means consumers now have significantly greater options regarding how and when to pay for goods and services.
“Getting process and operational excellence right has never been more critical, especially when expanding into new markets and building trust,” says Mamta Rodrigues, Teleperformance Global President of Banking, Financial Services & Insurance. “This ‘digital first’ approach is where Teleperformance and Mastercard come together. We’ve partnered to develop a solution that combines our global expertise in business operations, digital transformation and back-office service flexibility for fintechs, payments companies and digital players.”
As a global leader in digital integrated business services, Teleperformance already provides support services to more than 200 banks, payment providers and fintechs globally, including in Latin America. The company’s scale and 45 years of experience supporting the financial and banking sector allows it to not only understand companies’ business needs, but also to co-create effective journeys to ensure their essence and value proposition is integrated in every interaction.
