TCS secures a $700 million contract to digitise the products of a UK insurer

TCS scores $700 million deal to digitize UK insurer’s products

 MUMBAI: With a new agreement with an insurance services provider, Tata Consultancy Services Ltd. has secured its largest deal in the United Kingdom in three years.

TCS announced in a statement on Wednesday that Phoenix Group Holdings Plc, based in London, has agreed to a contract worth more than £600 million ($723 million) to digitally transform its product offering.

Asia's largest outsourcing company will incorporate Phoenix-owned life and pensions provider ReAssure's heritage business into its core financial services platform as part of the agreement. ReAssure's 3 million policies will also be administered and serviced by a TCS unit in the UK.

TCS, which has its headquarters in Mumbai, stated that the expansion of the partnership will assist the British company in becoming more competitive. TCS already provides some of the Phoenix Group's services.

Due to uncertainty regarding the economic outlook in 2023, Indian software services companies like TCS are anticipating a slowdown in technology spending. Even though TCS is optimistic about business prospects in the UK, the Russia-Ukraine war, which is entering its second year, and skyrocketing inflation have dampened sentiment throughout Europe.

Rajesh Gopinathan, the chief executive officer of TCS, stated last month, "If you look at Europe, there is obviously a real big issue out there." However, the environments in the United Kingdom and North America are quite distinct and extremely supportive.
