The consultancy’s end-to-end services consider every dimension of a digital business from marketing to IT, providing strategy, experience design, product engineering, cloud services, and analytics. Mobiquity is an AWS Partner Network (APN) Premier Consulting Partner and has worked with AWS since 2011 to deliver 100% cloud-based innovation to its clients. The firm also has a strategic partnership with Backbase, in both product engineering and in implementation services, to provide digital solutions for retail banking companies across the world.
Hexaware is a fast growing, next-generation provider of IT, BPO, and consulting services. The company serves customers in banking, financial services, capital markets, healthcare, insurance, manufacturing, retail, education, telecom, professional services (tax, audit, accounting, and legal), travel, transportation, and logistics.

The acquisition of Mobiquity strengthens two of Hexaware’s key strategic offerings: Cloudify Everything and Customer Experience Transformation. Mobiquity has established a benchmark in defining omnichannel digital experiences and next-gen user interfaces, such as smart speakers and digital assistants. The consultancy’s methodology combines consulting, design, and deep engineering capabilities that leverage the Cloud. Hexaware has also built capabilities in digital engineering, marketing and content platforms, e-commerce, and CRM. Together, the two companies will now offer a comprehensive suite of digital solutions enabling superlative customer experiences.
