TCS Recognised as Woolworths Group IT Partner of the Year for Second Consecutive Year

Tata Consultancy Services has Worked with Australia’s Largest Retail Group for over 20 Years, and has been a Strategic Partner for Key Growth and Transformation Initiatives

SYDNEY | MUMBAI, March 25, 2021: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS), a leading global IT services, consulting and business solutions organisation, has been named the Technology Partner of the Year by Woolworths Group, for the second year in a row.

Woolworths and TCS have been working together for over 20 years, the longevity of the partnership reflecting the companies' mutual cultural alignment and shared values around customer-centricity, employee focus, and commitment to local communities.

TCS is currently working with Woolworths Group on multiple transformation initiatives to aid its continued innovation and growth journey. It has been the strategic partner in Woolworths’ store transformation program that entailed building a fully integrated, device-agnostic, centralised platform to realise its vision of a connected store. Further, TCS helped Woolworths build a scalable, cloud-based data platform to aggregate data across merchandising, supply chain, stores and HR, creating a single source of truth for the business.

Despite the many and varied challenges 2020 threw at us, TCS did not waver and continued to provide exceptional service to our business. As a global business, TCS dealt with different and ever-changing challenges across its operations. They went above and beyond to ensure their service remained stable for Woolworths Group through a period of peak demand, and we are very grateful for that,” said John Hunt, Chief Information Officer, Woolworths Group.

We’re thrilled to be recognised once again as Woolworths Group IT’s Partner of the Year. We have been leveraging our investments in research and innovation, our digital expertise and our deep contextual knowledge, to help envisage and execute several leading transformation programs that provide Woolworths’ customers a differentiated and enriched shopping experience. We look forward to continuing our partnership,” said Ganesa Vaikuntam, Head of Retail, Travel, Transportation and Hospitality, TCS Australia and New Zealand.

Working in collaboration with Woolworths, the TCS community innovation program, has supported the Avner Pancreatic Cancer Foundation to deliver a mobile optimised website to ensure patients and their families have access to vital support and information from anywhere in Australia.
