SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- September 27, 2013

HCL America Inc. (HCLA), a fully owned subsidiary of leading global IT
services company HCL Technologies Ltd., announced today that it has won a
multi-year, multi-million dollar deal with the WyCAN Consortium, a group of
states including Arizona, Colorado, North Dakota and Wyoming. HCLA will enable
WyCAN to significantly improve services for its Unemployment Insurance (UI)
modernization program, which is one of the largest such programs in the US
providing critical income to millions of unemployed Americans.

HCLA was selected through a highly competitive process where it demonstrated
its unique and effective managed cloud-as-a-service solution called iGOVERN®.
HCL’s solution expertise will be used to deliver and support WYCAN’s
unemployment insurance (UI) tax and benefit systems and transform it into an
integrated claimant and employer focused, self assisted service channel.

"Modernizing our outdated technology systems is a necessary and critical step
forward if we are to effectively deliver timely and reliable services to
Colorado’s business community and those receiving unemployment benefits" said
Ellen Golombek, Executive Director of the Colorado Department of Labor and
Employment.

The deal will give the consortium states a configurable, intuitive
Government-to-Citizen (G2C) system aimed at consolidating and replacing
existing legacy systems to allow easier adaptation to changing legislation.
This means superior services for the claimant, employers and UI staff by
improving collaboration with other Department of Labor(DOL) agencies.

Kristin Russell,Secretary of Technology and Chief Information Officer for the
State of Colorado,said, “The public sector is in the midst of a radical
transformation in the way its business gets done and technology is playing a
pivotal role in enabling this wave of change.”

“We are very excited to have been chosen by WyCAN and are looking forward to
making a difference in the way government organizations are operating and
helping them leverage new technology solutions to provide better services to
its citizens,” said Todd Crandall, Executive Vice President of Public Services
and Emerging Industries, HCL America.
