“As part of our integrated multi-supplier delivery model, Accenture will help us to move to a more-modern, flexible IT environment, enabling us to reduce costs and improve the technology available to help our officers serve the public,” said Chris Naylor, digital policing lead at the Metropolitan Police Service. “Accenture has strong industry experience and recognises the importance of collaboration and cross-supplier integration to help deliver next-generation police services. We look forward to working closely with Accenture in managing our applications and introducing new, innovative solutions.”

Accenture will help the MPS manage its core IT applications, with the aim of enhancing its core applications and rationalising the organisation’s application portfolio.

“Our team looks forward to working with MPS to deliver technology transformation and to assisting the force achieve its vision for digital policing in London in the years ahead,” said Allan Fairley, managing director of Accenture’s Public Safety business in the UK.
