Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), the leading IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, has collaborated with Qualcomm Incorporated through its Qualcomm Wireless Reach initiative and FHI 360 to implement a digital solution that enriches the lives of the fishing community in Senegal, leveraging the transformative power of wireless technologies.

In Senegal, 90% of the fishing is done by artisanal fishers who sell to either wholesale fish markets or to small scale women entrepreneurs that process and sell the fish to wholesalers.

The goal of the Wireless Reach funded WISE program is to empower these artisanal fishers and women entrepreneurs with a solution, jointly designed and developed by TCS and FHI 360, that combines wireless connectivity with GPS in conjunction with specialized mobile and server applications that are accessible through an android based smartphone.

Shares of the company declined Rs 30.1, or 1.19%, to trade at  Rs 2,504.00.  The total volume of shares traded  was  35,080 at the BSE (12.36 p.m., Friday).
