Accenture aids supply chains with MacGregor Partners acquisition

Accenture has acquired MacGregor Partners, a supply chain consultancy and technology provider specializing in intelligent logistics and warehouse management.

The acquisition expands Accenture’s supply chain network and fulfilment transformation capabilities powered by Blue Yonder technology.

Headquartered in Raleigh, North Carolina, MacGregor Partners’ team of more than 100 employees will join Accenture’s Intelligent Platform Services group to assist companies across industries with warehouse management system (WMS) and transportation management system (TMS) implementations.

MacGregor Partners specialises in robotic solutions and brings intellectual property and capabilities spanning data visualization. Its analytics solutions meanwhile provide real-time visibility and actionable insights to improve warehouse and logistics performance.

Stephen Ambo, Accenture’s global Blue Yonder practice lead, said: “We work with our clients to take a holistic approach to warehousing and logistics, deploying market leading technologies like Blue Yonder to deliver next generation supply chain execution and commerce capabilities. Together with MacGregor, we will be even better positioned to help our clients profitably fulfil demand and deliver innovative products, services, and experiences to their customers.”

Jason Ziegler, MacGregor Partners president and CEO, said: “For over a decade, we have helped our clients transform their distribution network technology landscape, keeping their products in motion. As part of the Accenture platform, we will positively impact a much larger portion of the global supply chain, while increasing the speed of innovation our clients have come to trust. This also provides our employees with incredible opportunities for growth as we collectively craft the future of supply chain.”
