Country’s second largest software exporter Infosys Ltd on Wednesday said its US-based subsidiary, Infosys Public Services Inc, has entered into partnership with the Texas Department of Family & Protective Services (DFPS) to modernize the agency’s IMPACT (Information Management Protecting Adults and Children of Texas) system.
“Infosys Public Services and Texas Department of Family & Protective Services to Modernize State’s Child Welfare Information System,” the company said in a filing to the Bombay Stock Exchange on March 07, 2017.
IMPACT is the primary case management and administrative system used by DFPS to deliver child welfare related services.
In Phase 2 of IMPACT Modernization, the IMPACT system will be modernized into a modular, mobile-enabled application with automated workflows and self-service capabilities for Child Protective Services, Adult Protective Services, Child Care Licensing, and Prevention and Early Intervention program areas. This will improve efficiency and effectiveness of caseworkers, streamline operations, and reduce their administrative burden, enabling them to spend more time with their clients, it said.
The company further said that, once the modernization program is operational, IMPACT will continue to comply with the federal Statewide Automated Child Welfare Information System (SACWIS) standards, including the State’s business, data security, and technical requirements.
Meanwhile, shares of the company closed at Rs 1,007.25 apiece, down 1.22 per cent, from previous close on BSE.
