Accenture Recognized with Two 2020 Vodafone Supplier Awards
 
Honoured with ‘Supplier of the Year’ and ‘Outstanding Technology Provider’ Awards
LONDON, UK; Dec. 22, 2020 – Accenture has been honoured by Vodafone with its ‘Supplier of the Year’ and ‘Outstanding Technology Provider’ awards in the 2020 Vodafone Supplier Awards. The awards recognise the success of Accenture’s long-term collaboration supporting some of the communications company’s most complex transformational programs.
 
The awards recognise companies that have performed exceptionally in supporting Vodafone’s continuous drive for operating efficiency and to deliver greater benefits to its customers.
 
“Accenture has developed a joint go-to-market proposition with our Vodafone Business unit, in areas like security and artificial intelligence, that enables us to deliver value for our customers,” said Ninian Wilson, global supply chain director and CEO, Vodafone Procurement Company. “Together, we are committed to building a digital society, connecting people, companies, communities and things, and promoting digital inclusion.”

Chris Howarth, global client account lead for Vodafone at Accenture, commented on the win: “We are thrilled to receive these supplier awards and would like to thank the team at Vodafone for the recognition. We are focused on helping companies harness change to transform their business and drive shared success through our relationship with Vodafone. Our security collaboration and our intelligent care program are testaments to that."
 
Vodafone Business and Accenture are transforming the communication services provider’s customer experience. In the area of security, they are delivering managed security services to business customers in Europe that do not have the experience, time or resources to keep up with the rapidly evolving threat landscape. They are also using artificial intelligence for their intelligent care program that proactively reaches out to customers with information and steers them to the best possible channel for their individual needs when they call.
