Preferred Environment


The most amazing...

...thing was the automation of a treasury department process—from a manual to a fully digitized environment with average waiting times shortened to 15 minutes.

Work Experience

IT Director

2007 - PRESENT
Garanti Bank Romania
  • Worked on an automation project for a treasury which integrated 80 branches and the treasury marketing desk in order to provide clients with a special rate for their exchange transactions. RPA decreased the time to obtain the quotation and the core banking operations from 15 minutes to 1 minute per transaction.
  • Automized user management for the core banking app which changed weekly the robot’s passwords in order to strengthen user security posture using the RNGCrypto algorithm.
  • Implemented automation which defines the clients' time deposit accounts opened from branches to the internet banking application.
  • Developed automation that collected internet banking usage commissions from customer accounts other than local currency.
  • Automated blockage releases on customer accounts i to collect fees and commissions.
  • Automated the process that mimics/simulates end-user operations on certain applications to generate realistic availability reports.

GDPR Consent Management Automation

An RPA implementation feeds the client's marketing consent details to the core banking system. Marketing consents are collected from the clients paper-based, and the consent details are extracted with the agent's help and registered to the SQL server, which RPA bots read from the table with all the consent details.

RPA Developer

I analyzed, developed, and tested more than ten processes developed for several departments within the organization. In terms of ad operations, I automated the download of ad data that will be aired on the TV channels from the advertiser's website. I also uploaded the ad data to the core application called Wide Orbit. As for finance, I contributed to the processes for the month-end close. I also created various reports based on the HR data.

ITN Copy and Instruction on Wide Orbit

An RPA implementation that enters all the traffic instructions for the TV commercials of more than thirty TV stations received in PDF format from nationwide advertisers.

The process has three essential pillars, downloading all the traffic instruction files from the OTSM (Advertiser) website and making some additional verification like a week control or if that file was downloaded/used before saving the pdf files to the RPA robots execution folder. After the download, bots extract the traffic data from the PDF files and add it to the orchestrator queue. At the final stage, bots enter the traffic details into the Wide Orbit application.

Log Reconciliation | Wide Orbit

An RPA implementation gathers the log files of TV commercials shown from 78 different stations every morning, uploads them to the core application called Wide Orbit, and reconciles them for the month-end operations.

Bank Payment System Improvement

An RPA project implementation is integrated into the Bank's SWIFT infrastructure, which converts the corporate customers' payment files from XML to TXT file format and uploads them to the Bank's payment infrastructure.

Bank User Account's Management with WhatsApp Integration

An RPA implementation helps internal, working-from-home users to unlock their accounts and change their passwords via WhatsApp without interacting with helpdesk staff.

After the RPA implementation, users started to manage their accounts from their mobile phones without contacting the help desk team. Robots get password change requests via WhatsApp messages, change their passwords, and send via SMS to the user's registered mobile phones. A similar process is also valid for account unlock. When robots get the request, they unlock the account and send the results via a WhatsApp message.
