Partnership with Infosys Brings Configit’s Software Solutions to the Global Marketplace
Copenhagen – September 16, 2015 – Configit, a leader in configure-price-quote (CPQ) and configuration lifecycle management (CLM) solutions, today announced a partnership with Infosys, a global leader in consulting, technology, outsourcing and next-generation services. Infosys will operate as a full-scale implementer and deliver Configit software solutions on a global scale. The Configit competence center has been set up in the Knowledge Based Engineering group at Infosys.
A determining factor for this partnership stemmed from Configit’s evaluation as part of the Global Top CPQ Vendors in Gartner’s most recent Marketscope report from May of 2013. Gartner recognized Configit for its technical strengths in modeling ATO and ETO, as well as for the certified SAP integration.
Under the terms of the agreement, Configit will train a core team of Infosys engineers on Configit’s industry leading products. The two companies will work together with the Infosys core team appending Configit’s product development team in Europe to accelerate product development and go to market with a joint offering on the SAP hybris commerce platform combined with the Configit Product Suite.
“The partnership with Infosys is an important step for Configit in meeting the rapidly increasing international market demand for our software,” says Configit CEO Henrik Reif Andersen. “We now have the capability to deliver globally in even the largest of projects and ensure we are meeting and exceeding our clients’ expectations.”
Infosys has more than 200 engineers specializing in CPQ implementation, and a global client base of leading enterprises who use technology to drive business processes improvements.
“Taking advantage of the rapid developments in technology innovation is complex and requires enterprises to integrate and configure multiple systems to be effective. This partnership will enable our global client base to benefit from Configit’s leading CPQ and CLM solutions to renew their core business and innovate into new areas,” said Sudip Singh, Senior Vice President and Global Head, Engineering at Infosys.
Configit has dedicated academies in Copenhagen, Düsseldorf and Atlanta to train and certify participants. A fourth center is being planned within the Infosys Mysore Campus, known to be the world’s largest Corporate University.
