Pune-based Persistent Systems on Wednesday announced the acquisition of European Salesforce consulting partner, youperience.

Together with previously acquired Salesforce platinum consulting partner PARX, the professionals from these two boutique Salesforce shops combined with Persistent’s existing Salesforce experts will strengthen the company’s ability to provide better Salesforce outcomes to its global customers, Persistent Systems said in a statement.

With 170 employees in four countries (Germany, Switzerland, Austria, France), the integration of these two boutique partners creates an important European player in the fast-growing Salesforce partner ecosystem, providing wide-ranging and long-standing expertise in Salesforce cross-cloud projects. A dynamic Salesforce partner with expertise in the Marketing Cloud, youperience, complements the  team at PARX which delivers strong offerings in the full range of services.

Steffen Drillich, CEO and founder of youperience, said, "Joining Persistent and PARX creates exciting new opportunities for us. We will improve our capabilities and performance in terms of delivery and have access to new markets with locally available experts.”

Chris O’Connor, CEO of Persistent Systems, said, “ With more than 1,000 Salesforce professionals, we are a global boutique partner with scale, offering customers both business-focused consulting and excellent technical solutions. The combined expertise of our PARX and youperience team will help drive our success in Europe.”

A letter from the Editor


Dear Readers,

The coronavirus crisis has changed the world completely in the last few months. All of us have been locked into our homes, economic activity has come to a near standstill. Everyone has been impacted.

Including your favourite business and financial newspaper. Our printing and distribution chains have been severely disrupted across the country, leaving readers without access to newspapers. Newspaper delivery agents have also been unable to service their customers because of multiple restrictions.

In these difficult times, we, at BusinessLine have been working continuously every day so that you are informed about all the developments – whether on the pandemic, on policy responses, or the impact on the world of business and finance. Our team has been working round the clock to keep track of developments so that you – the reader – gets accurate information and actionable insights so that you can protect your jobs, businesses, finances and investments.

Our website and apps too, are updated every minute, so that you can access the information you want anywhere, anytime.
