Accenture Buys REPL


Accenture (NYSE: ACN) acquired REPL Group, a Henley-In-Arden, U.K.-based technology consultancy specializing in solutions for supply chain, workforce management, store operations and retail customer experiences.

The terms of the deal were not disclosed. 

The acquisition expands Accenture’s capabilities for clients across retail and adjacent industries to innovate their supply chains and operations and deliver customer and employee experiences. REPL’s team of approximately 440 professionals will join Accenture Technology.

Founded in 2007 by Mike Callender, chairman, REPL uses its deep retail expertise, coupled with technology skills, to help global businesses deliver sustainable value. The firm, which has additional offices in London, Warwick and Leeds in the U.K. as well as in the U.S., South Africa and Germany, has deep relationships with key ecosystem partners, including Blue Yonder, and is recognized as a Gold Consulting Partner in Blue Yonder’s Partner network.

The acquisition will further Accenture’s Supply Chain & Operations functional focus to meet demand for Blue Yonder’s cloud-based solutions  — for which Accenture was recently recognized as Customer Excellence Global Partner of the Year for supporting clients with customer-centric supply chain transformations that capitalize on a cloud-first approach.
