German BPO service provider Arvato Financial Solutions has bulked up once again in the United States with the launch of a delivery center in Atlanta.
Based in Sandy Springs, a city in northern Fulton County, the new office will provide finance & accounting, robotic process automation (RPA), payments, and fraud management services to the company’s North American clients.
Atlanta was chosen over several other US cities because of its “entrepreneurial focus,” skilled fintech talent, and global transportation access, stated the firm in a press release.
“It is an anchor location for Arvato’s presence in North America and expanding our footprint here will enable us to remain close to our clients,” said Rainer Majcen, President of Finance BPO at Arvato Financial Solutions.
The BPO provider is looking to hire business analysts and people with considerable experience in financial back-office services.
While it did not confirm how many people it would hire in Atlanta, the company declared that its aim is to triple the headcount over the next three years.
“The location will act as a hub for our North American operations, supporting the business across a wide variety of functions,” Majcen added.
Arvato runs similar delivery centers in other US locations including Louisville, Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin, Los Gatos, and Valencia, California.
Reputed as being Europe’s third largest integrated financial service provider, Arvato’s customers number about 10,000, a large majority of them representing sectors such as retail/e-commerce, telecommunications, insurance, banking, and healthcare.
“The location of Arvato in Sandy Springs is further evidence that our combined focus on leading-edge technology and global commerce is driving Metro Atlanta’s reputation as a world class location for international companies,” said Jorge Fernandez, Vice President of Global Commerce, Metro Atlanta Chamber.
