Whirlpool's operations in North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia will become more closely integrated with the recent outsourcing agreement it signed with Accenture. The New York based management consulting company will provide maintenance and support services for SAP applications related to demand chain, supply chain, HR and finance.
"Our contract with Accenture is part of our plan to transform our global information systems," said Esat Sezer, corporate vice president and CIO, Whirlpool Corporation. "It is an important element, which should help enable our strategic vision to develop a single global application management model, to focus Whirlpool resources on strategic capabilities and to maximize the return on application management investments."
