IT major Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) today said it has launched an application to provide unemployment insurance by the Mississippi, Rhode Island and Maine (MRM) Consortium to help unemployed individuals.
Mississippi’s unemployment insurance programme helps provides monetary benefits to those who have involuntarily lost their jobs, while they look for new employment opportunities, the company said.
TCS has been helping several US states to modernise their systems that support UI programmes.
“The successful launch of the TCS developed UI multi-tenant application in Mississippi demonstrates that the MRM Consortium continues to move forward,” said Mark Henry, Executive Director of the Mississippi Department of Employment Security.
“We are pleased that Mississippi is the first state to launch such an application, and we look forward to the deployment in Rhode Island and Maine next year. This success certainly required extensive team work and coordination by all the partners, and is an example of what we can achieve together.”
“TCS is delighted to partner with the MRM Consortium to pioneer this robust multi-state Unemployment Insurance modernization,” added Tanmoy Chakrabarty, Global Head, Government Industry Solutions Unit, TCS.
“We believe this will be a harbinger for many other US states to enhance their systems and fast-track improved service delivery to their stakeholders.”
