FLORHAM PARK, N.J., Oct. 12, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Conduent Incorporated (NASDAQ:CNDT), a business process services and solutions company, today announced the award of a blanket purchase agreement from the Social Security Administration (SSA) to provide automated mailroom technology that improves the efficiency of disability claims processing for millions of Americans in need.
