CRM Seller Infogain Announces Deal with India's Haldiram Snacks

August 15, 2008

Infogain Corporation, a vendor of CRM, ERP, Integration and Business Intelligence products, has announced its alliance with Haldiram Snacks, a manufacturer of popular Indian snacks.
 
Haldiram has engaged Infogain's services to develop and implement a dispatch management product to streamline its business processes.
 
The snacks vendor has several manufacturing units at multiple locations to support its retail operations across the globe, company officials say, adding that "all consignments are packed and dispatched to various retail outlets from these manufacturing units." Haldiram uses a manual process to manage the dispatch of these consignments, which leads, as you can guess, to a sub-optimal efficiency.
 
Infogain proposes to automate Haldiram's dispatch management process, and bring in its retail Business Process Management expertise to streamline Haldiram's business process.
 
"We aim to provide a reliable and futuristic automation product to Haldiram that will redefine its dispatch management practices to bring in more productivity and business efficiency," said Pramod Kapoor, Infogain's head of retail delivery services.
 
 Infogain's retail practice offers end to end IT products for retailers worldwide, including store systems, merchandising, BI, application management, financials CRM, and integration services.
 
Last month, Infogain and middleware provider Red Hat (News - Alert) announced an enterprise reseller agreement.
 
The agreement is described by Infogain officials as "a strategic step to accelerate adoption of Linux and JBoss into the enterprise market." As a certified Red Hat Advanced Partner, Infogain will offer the Red Hat Applications Stack, including enterprise versions of Linux, JBOSS, and Hibernate as well as customized services.
 
Infogain will use this partnership to "help its customers build products with reduction in total cost of ownership," the Infogainians say. Infogain's clients will be able to integrate JBoss Enterprise Middleware into their software product.
 
"The open source initiative is gaining tremendous momentum in the market enterprise, this alliance is a logical step," said Glenn Gramling, Infogain's Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, adding that "Red Hat will integrate with Infogain's open source best practices and methodologies."
 
In May Infogain, an Indian vendor of CRM, ERP, and BI products and services, entered into an expanded services partnership with California-based Compiere, according to Indian trade journal CXOToday.

Approximately 40 percent of customers planned to open or close an account in 2014. This means banks … [ Read More ]

BT Launches New Personalized Video Message Service
