  • Gained a quote-to-cash specialization in contract management with partnerships with Conga and DocuSign.

  • Commerce Cloud: Infosys has a comprehensive portfolio, including capabilities around the three primary Commerce Cloud products. The company has developed its IP around integration and specialized features complementing Salesforce's core applications.
  • Field Service: Unlike most competitors, Infosys has scale in field service, due to its background in Clicksoft. Infosys has experience in four core components (asset management, scheduling and dispatch, mobile enablement, and communications).

It also has specialized offerings, including a Clicksoft V8 migration to Field Service and the Smart Field Manager solution.
  • Revenue Cloud: Infosys has a background in an ISV (SteelBrick) which Salesforce acquired and became the initial basis for the Revenue product. The company pushes its consulting capabilities and integration with other applications, including ERPs/general ledgers, and migration from other CPQs to Salesforce CPQ. It has accelerators for revenue operations, CPQ implementations, and solutions for the manufacturing and high-tech sectors.
  • MuleSoft: Infosys has positioned its MuleSoft capabilities as part of its integration practice, which provides strategy & architecture services, IBM and TIBCO migration to MuleSoft's Anypoint Platform, and MuleSoft automation methodology. It also has MuleSoft-specific offerings such as C4E, a project management methodology, and an API library aligned by sub-vertical.
  • Vlocity: Infosys has one of the most comprehensive offerings and largest scale. It has specialized offerings and accelerators around telecom, insurance, health, and utility sectors covering CPQ, order management, digital commerce, integration, and migration.

Dominique Raviart, NelsonHall’s IT Services Practice Director, states - “Infosys’ leadership position comes from its ability to anticipate future client needs for Salesforce services while delivering immediate benefits. Their strategy focuses on building industry-specific solutions and templates to shorten implementation time. Partnering with Salesforce to create micro-vertical solutions for specific industries like automotive, telecom, and healthcare is a key priority for Infosys.”
