(RTTNews.com) - Technology outsourcing and consultancy firm Accenture Plc ( ACN ) Wednesday announced that it has signed a multi-year application outsourcing agreement with HDFC ERGO General Insurance Company Limited, an India-based general insurance company.
Under the deal, Accenture will develop, implement and manage a range of existing digital applications for the insurer. Accenture will maintain and upgrade HDFC ERGO's existing digital channels, including web portals and mobile applications.
Accenture added that it will develop analytical models to help the insurer better adapt its sales strategy according to its customers' evolving needs.
