CAPABILITY


SUPPLY CHAIN BUSINESS PROCESS SERVICES

Maximize supply chain business process services using analytics, mobility and leading technology.

A SMARTER SUPPLY CHAIN

The supply chain leaders in this turbulent global economy are using incisive and practical technologies such as cloud and analytics to manage increasingly complex resources.

By harnessing the power of market-leading tools, companies can boost revenue and expand the enterprise while significantly decreasing operating costs and working capital—all through smarter supply chain management.

INNOVATION, SPEED AND AGILITY

Today, the supply chain function faces a number of demands— economic volatility, data irregularities and talent shortages among them. As if these weren’t enough, CSCOs are also grappling with the increasing complexity of their global supply chain management systems.

At the same time, our research indicates that spending on cost of goods sold and selling, general and administrative costs can equal 50 to 75 percent of a company’s total revenues.

To succeed in this climate, smart companies are taking steps to manage market forces more nimbly. Developing an end-to-end supply chain management system can help companies increase speed to market, fund innovation and enable agility, among other benefits.

A MORE STRATEGIC SUPPLY CHAIN

Our services meld highly skilled, industry-specific practitioners, intellectual property and cloud technology to manage complex, global, end-to-end supply chains. The results for your business can be staggering:

  • Increased revenue by 2 to 5 percent

  • Decreased operating costs by more than 30 percent

  • Reduced working capital by more than 25 percent

We can help manage the entire spectrum of your supply chain (or discrete pieces)—from planning, procurement and distribution to aftermarket service operations. The result? A solid $5 return for every $1 you spend on our services.

THE CONTROL TOWER

At the heart of it all: Accenture’s proprietary Supply Chain Control Tower, a market-leading, cloud-based framework powered by intelligent technology and analytics.
