Accenture To Deliver Technology Upgrades, Mobile Apps To Improve Public Education System In Andalusia, Spain

Accenture (NYSE:ACN) has been selected by the Junta of Andalusia to upgrade and maintain the human resources system for the Andalusian public education system. The one-year IT contract runs through December 2014.

Accenture will provide functional and technical expertise from its delivery center locations in Spain to maintain the system that serves approximately 100,000 teachers and 4,000 schools. The system supports payroll generation, management of teacher vacancies and substitutions, and various e-services and paperless administrative initiatives, such as virtual office and notifications. New mobile applications will be developed and incorporated into efforts to make the system more effective and user-friendly.

Accenture also will establish a balanced scorecard to help senior management of the education department define goals and strategies, communicate status of initiatives to internal stakeholders, and compare student performance metrics across cities and provinces.

“Accenture is using its strong digital and mobile capabilities to strengthen this major system serving Andalusian education,” said Antonio Diaz Almagro, Accenture managing director. “Teachers and, indeed, the whole Andalusian education community will benefit as we bring modern technology to one of Europe’s biggest public education systems.”
