Accenture Acquires Supply Chain and Manufacturing Sector Focused IT Firm

Maintaining a lead position in the ever evolving and rapidly expanding IT services industry requires not only foresight but the ability to move quickly when opportunity is available. Recently Accenture announced it would acquire France based Firm Silveo to build on its expertise in Supply Chain and Manufacturing.

The acquisition adds 50 employees who have strong expertise in solutions based on SAP and Dassault Systemes technology. Such solutions provide information from production lines in real-time which helps companies to react in real-time regarding decisions on demand, supply and the capacity of plants.

Silveo was founded in 2014 and is headquartered in Neuilly sur Seine, France. Its founders excited about becoming part of the Accenture family, “We are passionate about helping companies make manufacturing and supply chains more flexible, automated, and driven by insights from data. Becoming part of Accenture Industry X.0 would be a fantastic opportunity for our team to bringing their skills to more clients and larger projects.”

Accenture was equally enthusiastic with country manager (France and Benelux) Olivier Girard commenting, “Silveo would add valuable expertise to Accenture that would immediately reinforce our service offering and nurture our organic growth. Their team would strengthen our ability to help clients use digital innovations to efficiently manufacture and supply products that fit the quickly evolving needs of their customers.”

Accenture Industry X.0 managing director Flavien Parrel further added, “Silveo’s expertise would enable us to better help clients benefit from digital technologies in industrial production. For instance, clients would be able to implement ‘digital twins’ of their factories. With these digital models, they can simulate changes to the factories without actually touching them. It can make the production process much more flexible and efficient.”
