Wipro Infotech, IT arm of Wipro Ltd, has successfully completed the digitisation of Employees’ State Insurance Corporation’s (ESIC) operations, one of the biggest e-governance projects in the country.
Wipro Infotech had bagged the Rs 1,182-crore six-and-a-half-year project ‘Panchdeep’ in March 2009.
“We are honoured to have been part of ESIC’s initiative in taking quality healthcare to the masses,” Wipro Senior Vice-President and Business Head, India, Middle East and Africa, Mr Anand Sankaran said at an ESIC function here today.
The six-and-a-half-year Panchdeep project aims at improving the healthcare services provided to ESIC’s customers through online facilities to employers and insured people for registration, payment of premiums and disbursement of cash benefits.
Under the project, Wipro has set up a unified information system automating all internal and external processes of ESIC.
Apart from installing hardware, Wipro has also provided specialised software solution and data centre facilities for covering over 2,000 locations across the country.
The Minister for Communications and IT, Mr Kapil Sibal, unveiled a commemorative stamp, while the Finance Minister, Mr Pranab Mukherjee, released a book titled ESIC Sparkling Diamond’ on the occasion.
