Accenture has announced its intent to acquire Silveo, a French consulting company that provides solutions and services for supply chains and manufacturing. Silveo would join Accenture Industry X.0 — the part of Accenture that uses digital technologies to improve how companies engineer and manufacture products and services and operate industrial facilities.
Silveo was founded in 2014 and is headquartered in Neuilly sur Seine, France. Silveo’s 50 employees specialize in solutions for supply chain and manufacturing, from planning to execution. Silveo offers several solutions that are based on software from SAP and Dassault Systèmes. These solutions provide information from production lines in real-time, which helps companies react to changes in demand, supply and the capacity of plants.
“Silveo would add valuable expertise to Accenture that would immediately reinforce our service offering and nurture our organic growth. Their team would strengthen our ability to help clients use digital innovations to efficiently manufacture and supply products that fit the quickly evolving needs of their customers,” said Olivier Girard, country managing director of Accenture in France and Benelux.
“We are passionate about helping companies make manufacturing and supply chains more flexible, automated, and driven by insights from data. Becoming part of Accenture Industry X.0 would be a fantastic opportunity for our team to bringing their skills to more clients and larger projects,” said Silveo founders Marc-Antoine Peuch, Romain Durando, Laurent Autebert and Karim Ait El Mouden.
