TCS was selected as the strategic partner to help build a digital-first, full-service life company for the Irish market.

TCS helped create a modern, cloud-based technology stack ground up, with its flagship insurance platform TCS BaNCS at the core that gives AIB's 3.2 million customers the ability to access financial advice.

In addition to designing and deploying the enabling technology stack, TCS will also provide IT, customer, and claims-handling services for AIB life in a managed insurance services model.
