TCS selected by the BBC to transform its finance and payroll function

Tata Consultancy Services has been selected by The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), the world’s leading public service broadcaster, to transform its finance and payroll functions, and manage the underlying application estate for greater agility and resilience.

Under the multi-year partnership, TCS will leverage its contextual knowledge, proprietary platforms, partner ecosystem and future-ready talent pool to power the broadcaster’s media business model re-imagination and drive growth. The partnership will entail managing individual processes across strategic as well as transactional finance operations, embedding digital technologies in them to improve efficiency, process velocity and process outcomes. Advanced analytics will provide insights that enable better and faster decision-making.

TCS will leverage TCS Cognix™, an AI-driven human-machine collaboration suite that provides pre-built, cloud-based modules leveraging AI, machine learning and intelligent automation, and which integrates well with point solutions from multiple partners. TCS will also provide application management and change delivery services for the broadcaster’s application estate supporting the finance, procurement, and HR functions.

TCS will implement its unified operations model that integrates the business process and application layers and enables more holistic problem diagnosis and issue resolution, as well as seamless change management. Additionally, TCS will help deploy a new partner payroll platform and services with an integrated analytics layer, to streamline the broadcaster’s payroll function.

“We are pleased to be selected by the BBC as their partner to transform their finance and payroll function. TCS’ digital capabilities and domain expertise will help them achieve their business objectives while building greater agility and resilience in their operations,” said Amit Kapur, Country Head, UK and Ireland, TCS. “This partnership will strengthen TCS’ position as a leader in delivering transformative business services to the media and entertainment industry.”
