Accenture Opens New BPO Delivery Center in Warsaw

WARSAW, Poland; May 29, 2006 – Accenture, a global management consulting, technology services and outsourcing company, has opened a new delivery center in Warsaw that will provide business process outsourcing (BPO) services in finance and accounting, supply chain management and human resources.

When fully staffed, the delivery center will employ up to 1,000 highly skilled professionals speaking more than a dozen European languages.

“Adding a center in Warsaw will allow us to provide services to our clients looking to leverage our BPO capabilities across a number of industries,” said Pawel Lobejko, Warsaw BPO Delivery Center lead. “We’re actively recruiting highly skilled personnel throughout our Global Delivery Network and Warsaw will play an important part as one of the nodes of our European BPO network”.

Accenture has selected Warsaw among various potential locations for its large population of motivated professionals, its modern infrastructure, and Poland’s economic and political stability. The Warsaw delivery center will join other Accenture centers in Eastern Europe, like Prague, Bratislava and Riga, providing a complete array of technology and BPO services.

“Accenture’s workforce is global and we have the industry knowledge and capabilities to service our clients in the markets and geographies that make the most sense for them,” said Jo Deblaere, a senior executive who heads Accenture’s BPO global delivery network. “By adding a new center, we believe that we can provide critical business process – be it customer support, or accounts payable and receivable, or corporate learning, or human resources – anywhere that service is required, at any time, and in any language our customers use.”

Accenture’s Global Delivery Network provides a wide array of services in system integration, application outsourcing, and business process outsourcing. It comprises more than 44,000 people, including local Accenture professionals working at client sites around the world, and more than 40 delivery centers in over 20 countries throughout Asia, Europe and the Americas.

Accenture has been working for clients in Poland for more than 15 years and opened its Warsaw office in 1993.
