Stocks in this article: ACNSAP

Accenture (NYSE:ACN) and SAP AG (NYSE:SAP) today announced an expansion of their global alliance to simplify the process for clients to purchase and implement SAP® products through Accenture. As a global value-added reseller (VAR), Accenture will serve as a single point of contact to deliver technology services and SAP products under a single framework directly to Accenture clients. This global agreement deepens and strengthens the long-time alliance relationship between the two companies and provides Accenture with all the benefits of an SAP gold partner available through the SAP® PartnerEdge® program, which can be leveraged in all of Accenture’s and SAP’s geographic markets.

Accenture and SAP recently announced an expansion of their global alliance with a unique business model to provide clients with end-to-end solutions running on the SAP HANA® platform, also under a single framework.

“SAP and Accenture recognize the strategic and significant impact that our successful partnership has on our global business and we have agreed to take our relationship to a new level,” said Mark Willford, senior managing director, Technology Ecosystem & Offerings, Accenture. “The global reseller agreement will benefit our clients by enabling new business models that provide more choice and flexibility. Introducing Accenture’s global resale capability to SAP solution-based opportunities will further differentiate our relationship and create new growth opportunities for both companies.”

Under the global reseller agreement, Accenture is bringing to market a dealer management solution for the dealer network of a heavy-equipment manufacturing company. The solution will help dealers operate their businesses more effectively through industry-leading capabilities including mobility for field sales and service personnel and improved business intelligence. The solution will feature SAP software that Accenture is configuring according to the dealers’ use cases, incorporating industry best practices for analytics, finance, sales, parts and service. Dealers will be able to access the solution and underlying SAP applications directly under an agreement with Accenture, benefiting from a simplified and flexible buying process.
