Infotech Lead India: Accenture has signed an IT deal with Carlsberg to deliver SAP solutions.
As per the agreement, Accenture will deliver an SAP solution supporting six functional business areas within Western Europe. The new single underlying system is designed to improve efficiency and improve customer service throughout Europe.
Accenture did not disclose financial terms of the three-year contract.
The central to the new IT deal is Carlsberg’s Business Standardization Program and supply chain integration (BSP1), which aims to improve capabilities, customer service and efficiency, increase speed and deliver an improved return on its investments.
“We chose Accenture because of their vast industry experience and our track record of successful collaborations with them over recent years,” said Iain Gow, vice president BSP1 at Carlsberg.
The company will complete the implementation in 2015. The new single solution will replace a series of stand-alone systems currently operating in the region, and will benefit Carlsberg’s sales, finance, production, logistics, procurement and planning functions.
“Carlsberg’s program of standardization and supply chain integration with its quest for greater efficiencies, and increased agility in order to capture growth opportunities, is characteristic of high performers in the consumer goods sector,” said Henrik Rasmussen, a managing director in Accenture’s Consumer Goods & Services practice.
