Mumbai: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS), a leading global IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, announced that it has won the 2021 CIO 100 Award for its Intelligent Urban Exchange (IUX) for Workplace Resilience software.
The annual CIO 100 Awards by IDG celebrate 100 organizations and the teams within them that are using IT in innovative ways to deliver business value, whether by creating competitive advantage, optimizing business processes, enabling growth or improving relationships with customers.
IUX for Workplace Resilience helps enterprises make it safer for employees to return to work amid COVID-19 by combining risk analytics with key business relaunch functions such as workforce safety, regulation compliance, operational resilience, and customer engagement. It is part of TCS’ Secure Borderless Workspaces™ (SBWS™) model, which enabled its workforce of over 469,000 individuals across 46 countries to work remotely in just a few weeks.
The software creates a safer workplace for employees with business-critical responsibilities that require them to be in the office. From concept to deployment, it took just four weeks for TCS to begin running the solution at its first location. TCS has successfully deployed the solution across nearly all its locations in 19 cities in India, as well as key facilities in the United States and Canada.
“The year 2020 tested the resiliency of every organization. TCS demonstrated its adaptability and resilience by rapidly innovating and creating new solutions to meet our employees’ and customers’ needs. IUX for Workplace Resilience is one such solution that has helped ensure TCS’ facilities are safe for employees delivering business-critical activities for our customers,” said Abhijit Mazumder, Chief Information Officer, TCS. “We are pleased to receive the CIO 100 award from IDG.”
“This year’s CIO 100 class demonstrates an amazing array of initiatives. Many helped their organizations thrive during the dark days of the coronavirus pandemic, whether by directly addressing new realities in health care or business or expediting digital adoption to adapt,” said Anne McCrory, Group VP, Customer Experience & Operations, IDG Communications, Inc. “We are honored to showcase these achievements and the spirit behind them at this year’s virtual CIO 100 Symposium & Awards in August.”
