Accenture harnesses cloud technology to assist with London’s “Super-Sewer” project

Wednesday, August 19, 2015

Accenture has implemented its own cloud-based ERP software to assist with the building and maintenance of London’s “super-sewer”.

The project is one of London’s biggest in terms of infrastructure and is being overseen by Thames Tideway Tunnel, a standalone regulated company.

Accenture’s cloud software, designed with NetSuite and known as the NetSuite OneWorld solution, will be used to support core financial planning and procurement functions, including financial consolidation, multicurrency and tax compliance.

“An agile and intuitive back-office IT system is critical for effective management and delivery of large-scale infrastructure projects,” said Robin Johns, head of Information Systems at Thames Tideway Tunnel.

“We selected Accenture to help us with this implementation based on its extensive experience with NetSuite cloud ERP technology and complex system integrations. We also chose Accenture for its ability to offer practical solutions to deliver an IT platform that will help facilitate financing and construction of the super sewer, while keeping costs down for customers.”
