Finnish Defence selects Accenture for ERP transformation

Under the terms of the contract, Accenture will design, deliver and maintain Finnish Defence’s SAP defence industry solution that focuses on logistics, human capital services and business intelligence reporting. The SAP DFPS (Defence Forces & Public Security) implementation will also help Finnish Defence expand and enhance its material management, procurement, maintenance and financial administration functions.

Accenture will consolidate a number of disparate information systems so that Finnish Defence can help increase operational efficiency and focus more on leveraging its personnel in times of peace and in crisis situations. The project is designed to significantly improve Finnish Defence’s processes and common procedures in all defence branches.

Frank Korsström, Accenture’s country managing director for Finland, said, “We are committed to working in close collaboration with Finnish Defence to make this groundbreaking ERP project a success. This project provides Finnish Defence access to Accenture’s global SAP skills and experience, although the work will be executed locally by Accenture professionals in Finland. We look forward to leveraging our skills and knowledge on behalf of Finnish Defence.”

NorthgateArinso will provide their expertise to Finnish Defence’s Human Resources as a subcontractor to Accenture.
