Apple and Accenture are partnering to help businesses transform how their people engage with customers through business solutions for iOS.
The partnership will take advantage of the simplicity and security of iOS and Accenture’s capabilities as a leader in the industry and digital transformation to help companies unlock new revenue streams, increase productivity, improve customer experience and reduce costs.
Accenture will create a dedicated iOS practice within Accenture Digital Studios in select locations around the world.
Experts from Apple will be co-located with this team.
Working together, the two companies will launch a new set of tools and services that help enterprise clients transform how they engage with customers using iPhones and iPads.
The experts will include visual and experience designers, programmers, data architects and scientists, and hardware and software designers.
“Starting 10 years ago with iPhone, and then with iPad, Apple has been transforming how work gets done, yet we believe that businesses have only just begun to scratch the surface of what they can do with our products,” says Tim Cook, Apple CEO.
“Both Apple and Accenture build user experiences and together we can continue to modernise how businesses work through solutions that take advantage of the capabilities of Apple’s technologies.”
Pierre Nanterme, Accenture chairman and CEO, says, “Based on our experience in developing mobile apps, we believe that iOS is the superior mobile platform for businesses and are excited to be partnering with Apple.
“By combining Accenture’s digital capabilities and industry expertise with Apple’s market leadership in creating products that delight customers, we are in a position to help our clients transform the way they work.”
The new iOS tools and services will take advantage of the latest Apple technologies and tap into Accenture’s digital and analytics capabilities.
