Mumbai, October 21, 2013: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS), a leading IT services, consulting, and business solutions organization, today, announced an Android device-ready version of its TCS Digital Insurance Agent Solution, an innovative mobile application that enables insurance agents and brokers to perform sales in real time, provide immediate customer service, and stay informed and connected while they’re on the go. The application is designed to leverage native tablet features, such as camera, voice recorder and location services for agent business transactions. The TCS Digital Insurance Agent Solution can be leveraged for key functions including prospecting, lead management, sales projection, measuring sales results and showcasing product capabilities.

“A recent Novarica survey revealed that 60 percent of insurers will add new mobile capabilities for policyholders and agents in 2013,” said Karlyn Carnahan, Principal, Novarica. “With mobile now incorporating tablets, insurers are seeing mobile capabilities as essential to their information value chains. Agents are seeking tools that improve interaction effectiveness from presentation to generating illustrations to completing applications.
