Globally leading IT services firm, HCL Technologies Ltd. today said that its wholly-owned subsidiary, HCL America, Inc. (HCLA) has entered into a multi-year, multi-million dollar deal with WyCAN Consortium.
Under the deal, HCLA will enable WyCAN Consortium, a group of states including Arizona, Colorado, North Dakota and Wyoming, to significantly improve services for its Unemployment Insurance (UI) modernization program, HCL said in a filing to the Bombay Stock Exchange.
The deal will give the consortium states a configurable, intuitive Government-to-Citizen (G2C) system aimed at consolidating and replacing existing legacy systems to allow easier adaptation to changing legislation. This means superior services for the claimant, employers and UI staff by improving collaboration with other Department of Labor agencies, the filing added.
“Modernizing our outdated technology systems is a necessary and critical step forward if we are to effectively deliver timely and reliable services to Colorado’s business community and those receiving unemployment benefits,” Colorado Department of Labor and Employment, Executive Director, Ellen Golombek said.
