CLIENT CASE STUDY


Building one organization at the EQUATE Group

OVERVIEW

THE EQUATE GROUP FACED THE CHALLENGE OF FACILITATING OPERATIONS ON A COMMON, SYSTEMS-INTEGRATED SOLUTION.

The company required a deeper understanding of how to implement and streamline homogenized, standardized and secure processes across key functional areas—and over more than 40 systems.

This initiative needed to be completed in under 12 months, when the service agreement with the former parent company of subsidiary, MEGlobal, was set to expire.

Accenture was chosen for this effort based on our expertise and experience in delivering similar solutions in the EQUATE Group's established global regions.

HOW WE
HELPED

WE WORKED TO PROVIDE AN EFFICIENT SOLUTION WITH MINIMAL BUSINESS DISRUPTION.


To help employees adopt the new system, we conducted extensive user-acceptance testing and training. And to foster alignment throughout the project, we collaborated with the EQUATE Group to confirm more than 440 strategic business decisions, review over 2000 business events and uncover more than 50 integration points—ensuring that the right people were utilized at the right time.
