Accenture has announced an agreement to acquire consulting and engineering company evopro group for an undisclosed sum.
Accenture expects the acquisition to increase its ability to develop and improve industrial applications. Additionally, it will strengthen its skills in the industrial software and automation market.
Csaba Meszaros, president and CEO of evopro, said: “The combination of evopro group’s software and engineering experts and Accenture’s industry knowhow will create a unique value proposition for industrial companies demanding fast, efficient and reliable software development and automation solutions.”
Eric Schaeffer, senior managing director with Accenture said: “[The acquisition] will also strengthen our mobility-based capabilities as we continue to build innovative connected solutions for clients across industries where embedded software is a differentiating capability.”
Evopro operates in Germany, Hungary, Romania and Turkey, where it offers services for embedded software used in industrial and medical equipment, automotive, building, logistics and transportation industries.
This is Accenture’s third acquisition aimed at enhancing its range of capabilities for manufacturing clients. Accenture recently acquired PRION Group and publicised plans to acquire PCO innovation. Both companies specialise in Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) services.
