Accenture (NYSE: ACN) acquired Advoco, a Greenville, SC-based systems integrator for Infor EAM, a software-as-a-service suite for enterprise asset management (EAM).

The amount of the deal was not disclosed.

The acquisition expands Accenture’s capabilities to help clients in the consumer goods & services, industrial, life sciences, transit and other industries make their operations and supply chains safer, more sustainable, productive and cost-efficient.
