Indian information technology (IT) services company Infosys has penned a contract with British soft drinks firm Britvic to accelerate the latter’s digital transformation. 

Under this partnership, Infosys will provide end-to-end IT services and deliver a technology-driven approach to fulfill Britvic’s business goals and strategic digital transformation roadmap, according to a statement. 

"Britvic's aim is to be the most dynamic, creative and admired soft drinks company in the world which means IT needs to transform the way service and operations are delivered - with Infosys we have a strategic partner to take our operations to the next level by leveraging automation and digitalisation, thereby, offering a seamless digital experience for our enterprise users,” Neal Johnson, IT director operations and infrastructure at Britvic, said. 

Originally called 'the British Vitamin Company', Britvic was established in the 1930s.  

The project will cover applications, cloud Infrastructure, service management and end user computing. The Bengaluru-based IT services giant will simplify and streamline Britvic’s cloud infrastructure and operations leveraging Infosys Cobalt and improving service delivery through analytics, automation and process maturity. 

Johnson said Infosys’ thought leadership in IT services for consumer goods companies would help it to innovate faster, be more agile and to transform quickly. 

“We are collaborating with Britvic on building new digital capabilities, driving continuous innovation and leveraging our cognitive-first approach to simplify operations further accelerating Britvic’s digital transformation journey,” Ambeshwar Nath, senior vice President, Infosys. 

 Last month, Infosys entered into a long-term partnership with Luxembourg based steel and mining company ArcelorMittal.  

Infosys reported a record total contract value (TCV) of $2.1 billion in the fourth quarter ended March 2021 (Q4), and $14 billion in FY21. Of the total TCV in FY21, $9.4 billion was a chunk of net new deals.  

Net profit in Q4 jumped 17.5%. The company said its net profit rose to Rs 5,076 crore, or Rs 11.94 per share, from Rs 4,321 crore, or Rs 10.18 per share, a year earlier. 

The country’s second-largest software services provider, in revenue terms, said it expects annual revenue in FY22 to grow by 12-14% in constant currency terms.
