The acquisition will help Infostretch’s standing in certain key verticals including financial services, insurance, and healthcare, while expanding its presence in the US Midwest and UK markets, the buyer said.

This is Infostretch’s first acquisition since the company received a private equity investment from Goldman Sachs Merchant Banking and Everstone Group in August 2020.

Founded in 2006, Saggezza has additional offices in Silicon Valley, California; the United Kingdom; and India. The company delivers business transformation services focused on digital design, enterprise automation, and CRM to large and mid-market companies.

The company recently launched a Salesforce consulting and implementation practice, becoming one of Salesforce’s fastest-growing partners, according to Infostretch.
