TCS Signs Improvement Service Deal to Deliver Digital Transformation to Scottish Households
Tata Consultancy Services will continue to enhance and deliver the award-winning digital platform, “myaccount”, to improve online access to healthcare, quality of life and opportunities for Scottish communities.
Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has been awarded a new contract by the Improvement Service, the national organisation for improving local government services and digital transformation in Scotland.
Following the completion of a successful, initial five-year contract, which achieved an unrivalled customer satisfaction in excess of 99%, TCS has signed a new, expanded contract. TCS will continue to deliver a digital platform for the award-winning authentication “myaccount” service and its broader portfolio, providing Scottish households with beneficial online public services.
“myaccount”, funded by the Scottish government , provides a simple and secure way of accessing a range of public services through one platform, which is used widely across almost all of Scotland’s 32 councils.
Sarah Gadsden, Improvement Service Interim Chief Executive said: “In this highly connected and collaborative digital society, it is important for the IS to keep up with the rate of change and continue to help councils and their partners improve the health, quality of life and opportunities of all people in Scotland.
“After a successful five-year partnership with TCS, I’m delighted IS will continue its digital transformation journey and further expand the digital services on offer in Scotland, while benefiting from examples of good practice and innovation across TCS’ global customer base.”
Selected as the Improvement Services’ technology partner for its core applications and services, TCS will focus on delivering the latest technologies to achieve digital transformation for communities across Scotland.
At the core of this solution is TCS’ DigiGov accelerator framework that uses TCS’ Rapid Transformation Methodology and provides reusable components that can be quickly integrated to transform traditional physical/manual services to smart, innovative IT-enabled service delivery.
TCS will also act as a managing agent for other third-party solution providers that deliver IT applications and services on behalf of the Improvement Service, integrating their solutions with its core DigiGovframework.
Gopalan Rajagopalan, Head of Scotland, TCS, added “With this new contract, TCS will continue to turn concepts into reality and collaborate with The Improvement Service and its partners to deliver true digital transformation and online services for the benefit of Scottish citizens.”
