Wipro continued to partner with our customers during Covid-19, some examples of how we collaborated are below:
Our customer, an American food service, facilities, and uniform services provider caters to over 5000 client locations across the US, majority of which are now inaccessible due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The company’s Chief Growth Officer collaborated with Wipro to map nursing homes in these locations that may be in dire need of help and which could be serviced by the local task teams. We successfully developed a Google Distance Matrix API based solution to map the top 10 service locations that could aid nursing homes in their serviceable regions. Especially for the New York state nursing homes that are more severely affected than most, we could provide same day location mapping results for priority outreach. This solution now has the ability to cover all nursing homes, enabling our customer to take its humanitarian effort nationwide.
One of the European governments recently announced multi – billion in loans for corporates to avail during the COVID19 crisis. Within a span of 3 days, we helped our customer, one of the largest banks in Europe, update and go-live with their loan processing applications to ensure their corporate customers’ businesses stay up and running. These applications can now process interest-free loans in just 15 minutes, and so far, nearly 10,000 of the bank’s corporate
customers have benefited immensely.
Amidst the COVID-19 crisis, we helped our customer, a Postal Services company in Middle East, launch a special medicine delivery service as a part of the government’s quick response for citizens.
