Adapt and Thrive Throughout the Energy Transition

The utilities landscape continues to change rapidly during this time of energy transition. The grid is becoming more complex, and customer and employee expectations are evolving.

Together with SAP, Accenture is co-innovating and co-developing the new SAP® Cloud for Utilities solution to support utilities companies in automating sales processes. This will free up resources to focus on creating meaningful customer experiences that can strengthen loyalty and increase revenue. The solution incorporates intelligent technologies and real-time business insights to support extensive capabilities that facilitate marketing, service, commerce, product bundling, self-service, order fulfilment, and subscription billing processes.

We invite you to visit us to discuss the bright future of the industry. Come by to learn how the next generation of solutions based on SAP software and technology can optimize your operations and position your utilities company to reach new heights.
