 Companies to Gain Critical Business Insights via Wireless Tablets and  


                                  Smart Phones

Bangalore, May 7, 2013: Infosys, a global consulting and technology leader,
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(r)
Retail Execution mobile application version 3.0. The application powers work
Infosys does for CPG companies, along with their merchandisers and promotions
planners. It streamlines sales forces by providing data via user-friendly 
mobile devices, instead of cumbersome laptops and user interfaces. The 
applications also provide critical business insights that help grow sales and 
more efficiently perform in-store activities like surveys, audits, order 
taking, promotion compliance and other functions. Infosys is continuing this 
cooperation on development of future versions of SAP Retail Execution.

The Infosys mobility practice has more than 2,600 core professionals and vast
experience in developing and deploying mobile solutions across various industry
vertical markets.

Infosys will showcase its capabilities for SAP Retail Execution and the SAP
HANA(r) platform in booth 139 at the SAPPHIRE(r) NOW conference, being held in
Orlando, Fla., May 14-16.

Quotes:
Rajesh Murthy, Global Head of SAP practice, Infosys:
"SAP Retail Execution helps CPG companies boost return on brand and promotion
investments by increasing promotional compliance and monitoring the success of
new products. Our partnership with SAP creates new opportunities for
organizations to maximize the data their systems generate, which improves the
speed and confidence of their decision making."
