TCS develops Into Work Cardiff mobile app for Cardiff Council
Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) said that it has designed and developed a new mobile app called Into Work Cardiff for the Cardiff Council in the UK.
The Into Work Cardiff app supports jobseekers and those looking to change careers by offering easy access to information on local employability services in real-time.
The Cardiff Council in the UK partnered with the Indian IT services firm to implement its digital strategy, which is aimed at helping members of the local community boost their career prospects, add new professional skills, or secure a new job.
Shalini Mathur — Tata Consultancy Services Business Unit Head of Public Services for UK, Europe and ANZ said: “Innovative use of digital technologies can transform citizen services significantly, expand access and enhance citizen experience.
“We are proud to be part of this important community initiative and look forward to continue working with Cardiff Council to develop such innovative, inclusive and effective digital solutions that enable delivery of state-of-the-art citizen services.”
Tata Consultancy Services built the Into Work Cardiff app using its DigiGOV framework, which is claimed to make digital services quicker to configure, easier to use, and more accessible.
The Cardiff Council app offers current information on the broad variety of employment support services provided by the Council’s Into Work advice services, which include job clubs, one-to-one mentoring projects, training, adult learning courses, employment events, access to funding and others.
Cardiff Councillor, Cabinet Member for Finance, Modernisation and Performance Chris Weaver said: “Our Into Work Advice Services have a great track record of supporting people into employment across a wide range of different sectors, helping to equip them with what they need to get back into work, supporting others to progress in their careers and get a job they really want, or into training and education.
“With the new app, built by TCS, it’s going to be even easier for people to find the latest updates to provision, whether that be information on job clubs, new courses they may be interested in, or projects that can get them on the path to where they want to be.”
Recently, Tata Consultancy Services entered into a partnership with NICE Actimize for providing anti-money laundering, compliance, and fraud risk management solutions to customers.
