Accenture (NYSE: ACN) is to acquire Silveo, a Neuilly sur Seine, France-based consulting company that provides solutions and services for supply chains and manufacturing.
The amount of the deal – subject to customary closing conditions – was not disclosed.
Silveo would join Accenture Industry X.0 — the Accenture’s arm that uses digital technologies to improve how companies engineer and manufacture products and services and operate industrial facilities. Adding it would enhance Accenture’s ability to allow clients to innovate their manufacturing and supply chain processes efficently.
Founded in 2014 by Marc-Antoine Peuch, Romain Durando, Laurent Autebert and Karim Ait El Mouden, Silveo offers several solutions that – based on software from SAP and Dassault Systèmes – provide information from production lines in real-time to help companies react quickly to changes in demand, supply, and the capacity of plants.
The firm’s 50 employees have expertise in solutions for supply chain and manufacturing, from planning to execution.
