News : HCL Tech Inks Pact with Washington Gas for Customer Services
Bengaluru, Dec 9, 2014 -- HCL Technologies said it has bagged a contract from the US-based Washington Gas for providing IT solutions related to billing and customer care.
Washington Gas distributes natural gas to residential, commercial and industrial customers in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia. It is a subsidiary of WGL Holdings, a public utility holding company based in Washington, DC.
HCL has been engaged to perform an application modernisation for Washington Gas’ legacy mainframe customer care and billing software, HCL said in a statement. The engagement period with HCL is for 30 months.
The company will provide Washington Gas with functional and technical deployment of SAP’s customer relationship and billing software, ClickSoftware Workforce Scheduling and Optimisation, and SAP’s Mobile Work Manager application services, and hosting of non-production servers on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform, it added.
The new solution is expected to help reduce integration complexity across the company’s billing and customer service IT applications. It will also enhance call centre and field operations processes, while giving the company improved control and reconciliation of utility billing.
