New Jersey-based Conduent Inc. (NYSE: CNDT) has detailed plans to reduce the workforce at its Conduent Commercial Solutions office in Indianapolis. In a notice to the state, the business process services provider says more than 100 employees will be laid off by the end of March.

Conduent said in the notice the layoffs are "due to a change in the business needs of a client." A spokesperson for the company provide the following statement to Inside INdiana Business: 

Due to the changing business needs of a client, we are making the necessary yet difficult decision to reduce our workforce and close our Indianapolis, Ind. facility on Castleway West Dr.
