The Accenture and SAP project is planned to help IVL harmonize data and processes from legacy systems, including many inherited through acquisitions the company has made while expanding its footprint across more than 35 countries. By creating a single source of information across its business globally, the new ERP system should help IVL enhance its operations, employee-development capabilities, and customer and supplier experiences.
IVL will use Accenture myConcerto, a fully integrated digital platform that integrates with S/4 Hana, to standardize and orchestrate key business functions, and will host the solution on Microsoft Azure for easy scalability. Accenture will deploy additional cloud solutions from SAP – including SAP Customer Experience, SuccessFactors and Concur solutions – to help IVL improve the management of customer experiences, its human resources capabilities, and time and expense management.
Once implemented, the new system should enable IVL to boost its performance through enhanced insight-driven decision-making capabilities, as well as help IVL integrate new acquisitions more quickly, with a standardized way of developing talent globally and accelerating the adoption of operational best practices.
As part of the program, Accenture will also provide IVL with enterprise-wide change management services to enable a successful transition to the new system.
