The global increase in demand for both food and energy, combined with the impact of rising commodity costs, has placed pressure on agribusinesses to improve productivity in all areas of the enterprise.
Operational excellence enables the efficient use of equipment, personnel and inputs to improve outcomes and returns. Accenture leads companies toward operational excellence by reducing capacity and allowing them to focus on the strategic elements of business.
Sourcing and procurement
A centrally coordinated approach to sourcing and supply management is key to procurement mastery. Accenture helps agribusinesses by building the requisite governance models to quickly and confidently segment supplier bases; develop stronger, more strategic supplier relationships; and focus on the purchasing activities that add the most value to the supply chain.
Agriculture and industry automation
The shift to automation from manual processes improves productivity, enhances asset utilization, prevents loss and deviation, enables traceability and increases the quality of product for agribusinesses. Accenture provides the technological tools and change management services that drive innovative methods of information transfer from the farm to the refinery.
