Infosys, (Bangalore, India) a global consulting and technology leader, have announced it is collaborating with SAP on development of mobile applications for the retail industry. These efforts are focused on giving consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies anytime, anywhere access to sales representatives and merchandisers, enabling them to capture information from the field to make them more competitive and agile.
Specifically, Infosys has cooperated with SAP on development of the SAP® Retail Execution mobile application version 3.0. The application powers the work Infosys does for CPG companies, along with their merchandisers and promotions planners.
