The company was honoured among a global field of top Microsoft partners for demonstrating excellence in innovation and implementation of customer solutions based on Microsoft technology.
Rajan Kohli, President, Wipro Digital said, “It is a great honor to be recognized as Microsoft’s Partner of the Year for Application Innovation in such a competitive field and with so many other outstanding submissions. By building and delivering world-class, AI-powered customer experience applications on Azure to clients, we take advantage of not only our deep engineering heritage but also our industry-leading service design capabilities. Combined with our experience and long-standing relationship with Microsoft, we look forward to helping other customers on their application modernization journey and transformation of their businesses.”
The Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards recognize Microsoft partners that have developed and delivered exceptional Microsoft-based solutions during the past year. Awards were classified in several categories, with honorees chosen from a set of more than 3,300 submitted nominations from more than 100 countries worldwide. Wipro was recognized for providing outstanding solutions and services in Application Innovation.
The Application Innovation award was presented to Wipro for enhancing Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA)’s passenger experience by building intelligent applications powered by Microsoft Azure. GTAA’s challenge was to provide passengers with seamless access to information throughout their travel journey and improve Airport Service Quality scores, while simplifying business operations and reducing operating costs. Wipro succeeded in significantly improving the customer experience and achieving GTAA’s business objectives in three areas - website, call center and baggage tracking all powered by Azure. Working with GTAA’s large, complex IT infrastructure, Wipro implemented Sitecore on Azure for the website, a conversational assistant on Azure AI for the call center, and blockchain on Azure for Baggage Tracking.
Martin Boyer, Vice President and Chief Information Officer at Greater Toronto Airports Authority said, “Innovating with technology plays a key role in driving continuous improvement at Toronto Pearson for passenger experience and operational efficiency, which are focus areas in the new normal of contactless journeys. We have been able to fuel innovation with our partners Wipro and Microsoft across various business areas by leveraging Azure AI, Blockchain and IoT. There is a huge opportunity to redefine the airport experience by leveraging emerging technologies and this is just the beginning.”
