Accenture completes acquisition of PRION Group

2 Oct 2013

Technology consulting firm Accenture has wrapped up its acquisition of PRION Group, a consulting and systems integrator that specialises in Siemens product lifecycle management (PLM) software, for an undisclosed sum.

Under the deal, Accenture aims to strengthen its PLM skills and its ability to help clients deliver products to customers more quickly and efficiently, as well as expand its end-to-end PLM offering by combining PRION Group’s range of PLM services with its existing PLM capabilities.

PRION Group’s workforce specialises in PLM strategy and process consultancy, system implementation, data migration, application management and PLM as a managed service.

The goal of combining these skills with Accenture’s management consulting, technology and outsourcing capabilities is to create a global PLM offering for manufacturing industries, including industrial equipment, automotive, consumer goods, and aerospace and defence.
