Additionally, it has built a web portal with consignment tracking capabilities and set up a multi-lingual call centre for customer support, the company added.

To enable India Post to benefit from the burgeoning e-commerce opportunity, while fulfilling a vital social obligation, the web portal has an e-marketplace to help rural artisans, self-help groups and women entrepreneurs reach out to buyers throughout the country.

“In a digital era, postal services across the world are reinventing themselves to stay relevant to a new generation,” Debashis Ghosh, Business Group Head – Public Services, TCS, said in a statement. “We are proud to have partnered with the Department of Posts in this pioneering, mission mode initiative to build a world class, future-ready digital platform that the nation can be proud of,” Ghosh added.

At the heart of this transformation is the Core System Integration (CSI) programme designed and implemented by TCS, the company said.

This involved deploying an integrated Enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution that caters to mail operations, finance and accounting, and HR functions, and connects its vast network of more than 150,000 post offices.

It supports the HR needs of over 500,000 employees, services over 40,000 concurrent users and processes over three million postal transactions a day, TCS said.
