Cognizant has agreed to acquire the French operations of EI-Technologies, a Paris-based, digital technology consulting firm and Salesforce specialist in France.
The proposed acquisition would complement Cognizant’s global Salesforce practice, expanding client resources in Europe.
Cognizant would add approximately 345 employees in France.
Bechara Raad, founder and CEO of EI-Technologies, said: “Joining Cognizant would enable us to address a wider range of client needs — including automation, artificial intelligence, customer experience design and more — that are emerging in the digital economy, and to pursue projects on a larger scale.”
EI-Technologies is a Salesforce Platinum Partner, and its EI-Institut is among the largest Salesforce Authorized Training Delivery Partner centers in Europe.
EI-Technologies’s clients include companies listed on the French stock market’s CAC 40 index in the manufacturing, energy and utilities, financial services and luxury industries. In addition to Salesforce expertise, the company also specializes in Microsoft collaboration platform solutions and CIO advisory services.
