Indian IT services giant Wipro has been recognised as one of the best suppliers in terms of quality and service by global cockpit electronics firm Visteon Corporation. The title was bestowed upon Wipro at the Strategic Supplier Conference held by Visteon in Michigan last month. 

The recognition comes at a time when the firm appears to be recovering from a period of stagnation and subsequent restructuring. Much like most other IT services firms, Wipro has recently been struggling with the wave of digital disruption that has made its traditional suit of service obsolete.

As Industry 4.0 technology increasingly permeates the business world, demands from IT services firms have evolved from the traditional establishment and maintenance of IT infrastructure to the integration and implementation of Internet of Things, artificial intelligence and other such digital enhancements.

After a brief struggle that caused a dip in revenues, Wipro has engaged itself in comprehensive efforts to expand its capacity in the digital services domain. Alongside investments and acquisitions, the strategy has comprised international partnerships to increase capacity.

This strategy has now begun to pay dividends, both in monetary terms as otherwise. The firm surprised most experts by posting substantial profits in the first financial quarter of this year, and has now been recognised for the outstanding quality of its products and services by Visteon.

Visteon is a US-based technology firm that specialises in cockpit electronics and other automotive solutions. At The Automotive Hall of Fame held by Visteon earlier – attended by representatives from 60 suppliers of Visteon – the firm recognised Wipro as a Best Quality Supplier for the reliability and quality of its service and delivery.

Sachin Lawande, President and CEO at the Visteon Corporation said, “Our suppliers are critical to the success of Visteon as a technology-focused leader in cockpit electronics, particularly as the industry transitions toward electric and autonomous vehicles. Each of the suppliers recognized by Visteon has made a particularly noteworthy contribution to our ability to develop innovative, high-quality products and solutions for global automakers, with speed and at competitive costs.”

President of Marketing, Innovations & Technology at Wipro Milan Rao said, “Wipro is honored to be recognized by Visteon for its role in advancing the quality and technology of cockpit electronics in vehicles, which is one of the fastest-growing and most important segments in the automotive industry. This award is a testimony to our continuous commitment to advancement and support of cutting edge technology in the automobile industry.”
