“Delivering an exceptional customer experience has emerged as a fundamental element in modern business strategy, and essential to any company’s competitive position,” IBM iX Global Leader, Paul Papas, said.

“With Bluewolf, we’ve added expertise to address the growing demand from Salesforce clients for transformational, Cloud-based services that allow them to transform the experiences they provide their customers.”

While financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, IBM iX provides next-generation services spanning industry strategy, creative and design, to scalable digital, commerce, mobile and wearable platforms.

“As a part of IBM iX, we will amplify our capabilities to create extraordinary customer moments and digital experiences,” Bluewolf CEO, Eric Berridge, added.

“Combining forces brings game-changing strategy, data and design expertise, for customers of all sizes and industries, instantly transforming us into a formidable global partner in the Salesforce ecosystem.”
