Infosys is a Leader in NelsonHall NEAT Assessment for Salesforce Services
NelsonHall recently published its NEAT (NelsonHall Vendor Evaluation and Assessment 2022) for Salesforce Services. This assessment analyzes the performance of vendors offering Salesforce services.
Recognizing Infosys as a ‘Leader’, the report scored Infosys highly on both axes – ability to deliver immediate benefit and to meet future client requirements. Infosys was positioned highly for Marketing Cloud, Experience Cloud, and MuleSoft offerings.
The NEAT report recognizes the core strengths of Infosys such as:
- Consulting capabilities that have been enhanced by acquisitions such as Fluido and Simplus
- Industry solutions and micro-vertical solutions in partnership with Salesforce with an emphasis on automotive, telecom, CPG, communications, and healthcare
- Rich partnership ecosystem with ServiceMax, Xactly, IQVIA, Veeva, and nCino (mortgage origination), Conga, and DocuSign
- Accelerated upskilling effort towards specialized services
NelsonHall has highlighted our comprehensive offering ranging from core products (Sales and Service Cloud) to Marketing, Community, and Commerce Cloud and consulting services and specialized services such as Revenue Cloud, Salesforce Industry, Einstein, Field Service, and CloudSense (commerce subscriber management). Additionally, Infosys has been positioned as a Leader in seven other focus areas - Field Services, Marketing Cloud Services, Experience Cloud Services, Commerce Cloud Services, Vlocity Services, MuleSoft Services, and Revenue Cloud Services.
Other remarkable mentions in the report include:
- Experience Cloud: Infosys has expertise and solutions around automotive dealerships. Infosys has expanded its capabilities to CMS integration. Infosys has also developed specific offerings such as a farmer portal, an HR case management portal, an automotive dealer portal, a booking portal, and a funds portal.
- Marketing Cloud: Infosys has a comprehensive offering and specialized capabilities such as campaign as a service and subscription centers.

The company has developed its IP around integration and specialized features.
- 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). Infosys is investing in new offerings, with a proactive service based on IoT and AI. The new service will use data captured by sensors and AI-based analytics to identify potential failures and required maintenance for various equipment.
- Revenue Cloud: Infosys’ background in ISV (SteelBrick) which Salesforce acquired and which became the basis for the Revenue product has also been called out. Infosys has several accelerators around CPQ (partner channel sales) for the manufacturing and high-tech industries. For high-tech, Infosys has self-service capabilities for managing contracts and the installed base (products already purchased from suppliers), including increases and decreases down to contract termination/cancellation.
- MuleSoft: The report mentions our offerings around IBM and TIBCO migration to MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform in addition to MuleSoft-specific offerings such as C4E. Infosys has specialized offerings and accelerators such as Migration-to-MuleSoft, Infosys Connected Supply Chain, Integration Workbench, ICC Factory, One-Click API, and Integrate+.
