Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has signed an agreement to help Brandix, the leading apparel manufacturer in Sri Lanka, transform its manufacturing, supply chain, finance and human resources operations to set the stage for the company’s digital future.

Under the terms of the agreement, Accenture will help Brandix develop innovative solutions that focus on process excellence, productivity improvement, data-driven analytics and the internet of things — all while driving end-to-end integrated solutions.

“I’m confident that this collaboration will help us achieve new avenues of growth not only in Sri Lanka but at the global scale,” said Ashroff Omar, Brandix’s Group Chief Executive Officer on 6 Aug 2019.

“This is in line with our overall strategic decision to develop the apparel ecosystem and create a future-ready, global organization for the digital era,” said Omar.

Manish Sharma, group operating officer for Accenture Operations, added, “We look forward to continuing our ongoing collaboration with Brandix — which began in 2013 — to transform its processes leveraging our global expertise in data science, analytics, consulting, strategy and operations. Together, we will work toward significantly enhancing the company’s top-line growth and bottom-line savings in the next six years.”

Anindya Basu, geographic unit and country senior managing director for Accenture in India, said, “The retail industry is being redefined globally by consumer expectations, digital technologies and transformative business models.

“To create value in this highly competitive environment, apparel manufacturers need to embed technology-led innovation not only at the edges of systems but also within their core processes,” elaborated Basu.

Accenture is a leading global professional services company, providing a broad range of services and solutions in strategy, consulting, digital, technology and operations.

Brandix, the single largest employer in Sri Lanka’s Export sector and adjudged ‘Globally Operated Highest Foreign Exchange Earner’ at the 2018 Presidential Export Awards, operates apparel manufacturing units in Sri Lanka, India, Bangladesh, Haiti and Cambodia. fiinews.com
