Accenture has won a three-year contract from Carlsberg IT, the company that provides the Carlsberg Group with business solutions, including consulting, development and support of IT solutions. Financial details of the agreement were not disclosed.

Under the terms of the contract, Accenture will provide Carlsberg IT with systems integration, application development and maintenance, program management and management consulting services across Europe.

The strategic collaboration will enable Carlsberg to meet future delivery demands by having a scalable IT organization. The agreement is designed to help Carlsberg:

• achieve strategic objectives and initiatives;

• realize long-term benefits from reduced IT costs;

• improve the pace of Carlsberg’s IT application development and maintenance process; and

• increase organizational flexibility by having access to the right skills at the right time, thereby accelerating the mobilization of resources.

Kenneth Egelund Schmidt, vice president at Carlsberg IT, said: “The focus within Carlsberg on reducing operational costs and increasing business process standardization across our business requires a flexible IT organization with a global presence. Accenture's proven track record in the consumer products industry and world-class managed application services capabilities assures us that entering this collaboration will provide Carlsberg with access to additional IT resources and know-how when and wherever needed, giving us the needed scalability."

Drawing on its global systems integration expertise, Accenture will help Carlsberg IT carry out SAP and Microsoft software implementations in Europe to replace old legacy systems and implement a common enterprise resource planning platform, supporting standardized business processes and enabling future business growth.

Henrik Rasmussen, a senior executive in Accenture’s Consumer Goods & Services practice, said: “Carlsberg has a culture of quality, innovation and continuous improvement, and this program should help it to continue to deliver high performance. The standardization of business processes and applications across functions and borders will help to create simplified and streamlined operations, enabling Carlsberg to respond quickly and effectively to the changing business environment.”
