HCL Technologies, Manchester United’s Official Digital Transformation partner, is proud to support the global effort to combat COVID-19 through its technology solutions in collaboration with clients, industry bodies and government officials.
We’re committed to ensuring business continuity for our customers who play critical roles in mitigating COVID-19’s impact on healthcare systems, local and global economies, by supporting industries of healthcare, life sciences, and biotech, financial services, and public utility majors - water, power, governance, travel and safety organisations.
The health and well-being of our 150,000 employees across 46 nations remains our paramount priority as they go above and beyond to ensure resiliency for our clients to deliver undisrupted services for their stakeholders.
HCL is also proud to have powered Manchester United’s endeavour to remain connected with and entertain the global community of Red Devils, helping fans get through trying times, with memorable, engaging content and digital experiences via the club's official digital media platforms.
Supporting our Communities - #OneHCL
To give back to our extended ecosystem across communities we operate in worldwide, we've committed medical equipment support to local administrations, contributed PPEs for frontline healthcare workers, provided free daily meals for the most vulnerable, initiated awareness generation drives for at-risk, marginalised groups, and supported local authorities with crisis communication control rooms to respond to citizen queries with credible information.
Technology has risen to the occasion to keep us together, in a time of social distancing and unprecedented uncertainty, disruption, and isolation. Innovative solutions have proven that we can remain connected, productive, informed, and empowered while staying physically apart. Modern technologies are further empowering the heroic efforts of first responders, healthcare workers, researchers, experts, and essential workers who continue to hold things together, protecting the most vulnerable, and seek solutions to help the world get better, and emerge stronger.
Technology has stepped up not only to do good, but to do better. And better solutions aren’t born in isolation but out of great collaboration.
HCL presents the Better Health Hackathon: #CodeForCovid19 to crowdsource tangible tech solutions to help drive better outcomes for us all, by engaging a global community of passionate, purpose-driven innovators and problem solvers, in collaboration with experts and thought leaders from technology, healthcare, academia and industry partners.
The Hackathon invites ideas across broad themes of the ongoing crisis to provide immediate and lasting impact, for current and long-term pandemic-related challenges. #CodeForCovid19 is open for participation till the end of July culminating with a virtual presentation of the best projects shortlisted, with winning teams (as determined by an elite judging panel of experts) taking home a total of $ 50,000 in prizes and other exclusive rewards.
HCL is proud to have Manchester United be a part of the Better Health Hackathon. Together we’re looking for creative ways United can enable fans to be immersed in shared viewing experiences (similar to the #ILOVEUNITED series of global fan engagement activations) retaining the same sense of community, and ability to engage with club legends and partner brands as in the physical event format.
