Expansion of services and significant projects

We have been working on building a better tomorrow for us and our stakeholders. New offerings, novel client engagement models, innovation, focus on Research & Development (R&D) and the new economies constitute the new order at Infosys.

Our Intellectual Property (IP)-based solutions continue to benefit clients. We are designing and implementing a research informatics system at leading biotechnology company to accelerate discovery research. We are using our Scientific Innovation Solution for knowledge collaboration in this engagement. We partnered with a telecom major to launch a Mobile Application Store. Powered by Flypp(TM), our 'Ready-to-Launch' application platform, the store offers a bouquet of applications drawn from an Infosys-managed ecosystem of Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and innovators in India and across the globe. A manufacturer is implementing the Infosys Supply Chain Visibility and Collaboration Suite as part of its enterprise-wide initiative on sourcing business intelligence and spends analysis.

Learning Services, our recent organizational learning offering, is fast gaining traction among our clients. A groceries and general merchandising company consulted us for training a core group of employees and disseminating the knowledge across business users. A consumer electronics major consulted us for a comprehensive learning management solution.

Industry leaders continue to turn to us for our Engineering Services, both in core areas such as R&D and Product Development as well as newer services such as Mobility. A global auto leader engaged us to formulate its Enterprise Mobility strategy to help optimize internal operations and present on-demand information to its customers. We are helping a leading cable operator launch next-generation home gateway devices for voice and data services. A leading defense electronics and systems company engaged us to develop a navigation workstation. A global aircraft manufacturer engaged us to provide engineering design services across multiple aircraft programs. We are building a Contact Center solution for a leading bank to enhance customer service agent experience and productivity. For an information management services leader, we are enabling sales expansion by carrying out accessibility compliance per US Federal and Computer Security standards for its software product.

In a major transformation project, we will manage internal IT services for a US-based ISV and help it implement ISO 20000 and IT Service Management (ITSM) processes. We will provide Infrastructure and Application Services, Service Desk, and Desk-Side Services in 450 locations across 104 countries. For another ISV, we are developing a cloud-based, closed and secure end-to-end system that consolidates and delivers transaction statements, promotions, catalogues, and other media digitally from businesses to households. A manufacturer engaged us to transform its turbine remanufacturing business. A manufacturer of environmental and industrial measurement instruments partnered with us to standardize its systems across the world and accelerate its Oracle E-Business Suite rollout using our proprietary tools and accelerators. An aero company consulted us to enhance its customer application portal. A leading retailer partnered with us to develop and implement a new multi-channel system for Order Management.

As the new economies transform into global economic hubs, we continue to focus on becoming a major player there and attract significant clients. A large bank consulted us to eliminate process redundancies, improve the quality of data reported, and reduce cycle time as well as processing cost. Another major bank partnered with us to design, build and support a portal framework for wealth management. A telecommunications and information services company engaged us to improve its customer self service capability and customer retention. We partnered with the same company to deliver an emergency alert system to ensure timely SMSes and voice warnings to community residents. This system, a life-saving service, won national recognition for the client.

"We maintained our margins in one of the toughest years for the industry while our cash and cash equivalents reached $3.5 billion," said V. Balakrishnan, Chief Financial Officer. "The currency volatility continues to be a concern for the industry. We, however, have an active hedging program to minimize its impact on our margins."
