Apple and Accenture have joined forces to help businesses transform how their workers engage with customers through business solutions for iOS.
Apple said the partnership will “take full advantage of the power, simplicity and security of iOS” to help companies unlock new revenue streams, increase productivity, and improve customer experience.
“Starting 10 years ago with iPhone, and then with iPad, Apple has been transforming how work gets done, yet we believe that businesses have only just begun to scratch the surface of what they can do with our products,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “Both Apple and Accenture are leaders in building incredible user experiences and together we can continue to truly modernize how businesses work through amazing solutions that take advantage of the incredible capabilities of Apple’s technologies.”
As part of the partnership, Accenture said it will create a dedicated iOS practice within Accenture Digital Studios in select locations around the world. Experts from Apple—including experience designers and data scientists—will be co-located with this team to educate enterprise clients on how they engage with customers using iPhone and iPad.
“Based on our experience in developing mobile apps, we believe that iOS is the superior mobile platform for businesses and are excited to be partnering with Apple,” said Pierre Nanterme, Accenture’s chairman and CEO.
“By combining Accenture’s vast digital capabilities and industry expertise with Apple’s market leadership in creating products that delight customers, we are in a perfect position to help our clients transform the way they work.”
