Infosys announced Tuesday it acquired Simplus, one of the fastest-growing Salesforce Platinum Partners in the United States and Australia.

Simplus, based in Salt Lake City, is a recognized leader and advisor in cloud consulting, implementation, data integration, change management and training services for Salesforce Quote-to-Cash applications.

This acquisition, coupled with the acquisition of Fluido announced in September 2018, further elevates Infosys' position as an end-to-end Salesforce enterprise cloud solutions and services provider, according to a press release.

Simplus brings to India-based Infosys globally recognized Salesforce expertise, industry knowledge, solution assets, deep ecosystem relationships and a broad clientele across a variety of industries.

Infosys COO Pravin Rao said in a prepared statement:

The acquisition reaffirms our continuous endeavor to strengthen our strategy of scaling our Agile Digital and cloud-first digital transformation capabilities. This acquisition is key to staying relevant to the digital priorities of our clients and demonstrates our commitment to the Salesforce ecosystem. The strategic combination of scalable and agile global delivery capabilities of Simplus complements our effort to help global enterprises to transform their businesses. We are excited to welcome Simplus and its leadership team into the Infosys family.

The acquisition is expected to close during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, subject to customary closing conditions. Ryan Westwood, CEO & co-founder, Simplus said in a news release:

We are thrilled to be partnering with the Infosys team. We have viewed this partnership from a culture-first lens from the beginning, and we believe that the alignment of our company values, and the preservation of our company DNA will allow us to accelerate growth and together become the strongest and most respected partner in the Salesforce ecosystem.

Westwood and all of the current executive team will continue forward in the deal, which is the largest acquisition that Infosys has ever made. It underscores Infosys’ desire to further expand its Salesforce Services in North America and Australia.
