Infosys announces tech partnership with A S Watson Group
Infosys share closed 0.62% up at 1150.30 today and it surged 10.78% in the past one month
Infosys, information technology consulting firm, today announced a strategic partnership with the AS Watson Group (ASW), the world’s largest international health and beauty retailer, to accelerate the latter's digital transformation initiatives.
Infosys has been appointed as an official technology partner by the AS Watson Group to provide technology services across data science and artificial intelligence.
"The partnership is aligned with ASW’s customer strategy, DARE – to be Different, Anywhere, build Relationships and offer unique Experiences," a statement issued by Infosys said.
Infosys’ solutions, services and technologies will accelerate ASW’s next-generation digital marketing platform, build robust AI and machine learning frameworks for ASW’s customer centric analytics, optimise operational efficiencies, improve scalability and reusability across business units, the statement said.
Malina Ngai, Group Chief Operating Officer of AS Watson Group, said, “We believe every technology partner whom we have chosen to work with is more than just a vendor. Traditional client-vendor relationships are short-term, lack transparency and continuity."
Ngai said that the partnership programme is designed to transform the short-term contractual relationship to a longer-term strategic relationship to create a win-win for both parties.
"The appointment of our first batch of worldwide technology partners shows our determination to accelerate our digital transformation, enabling the A S Watson Group to build on our solid retail foundation to fuel further growth through a smarter and more efficient organisation."
"Our purpose of putting customer first and putting a smile on their faces continues. We recognise that our customers are changing rapidly and technology has become an ever more critical ingredient to deliver our purpose.”
Ravi Kumar S, president and deputy chief operating officer of Infosys, said, “It is imperative that companies embrace digital technologies if they want to stay relevant and it is inevitable in the highly competitive and dynamic retail industry."
