UK manufacturing software house JBA Software has signed a deal with Indian based Unicorp to launch its products in the subcontinent. JBA may also pick up an equity stake in Unicorp after the first year of operations, said Kamal Sharma, chief executive of JBA in the Asia-Pacific region.
JBA already has a presence in India through EDS but the new deal will include technical cooperation and targeting of a wider range of sectors. The company hopes to gain $200 million of business within the next three years through the new partnership, Sharma said.
Under the new agreement, EDS will still provide and support JBA solutions in the automotive, pharmaceuticals and white goods sectors, while Unicorp will specialise in food and drink, clothing and footware companies.
Unicorp, which numbers Reebok, Chubb and Minolta among its customers, will Indianise the JBA packages.
