Accenture has made its Accenture CAS software available on Windows 8.1 devices.
Starting with tablets and closely followed by mobile phones, the move will help to better enable mobile workforces.
Accenture CAS is an integrated sales platform that covers sales processes and operations, helping to support efficient management from mobile devices. Users can manage all aspects of sales, including retail execution and direct store delivery, through one interface on their mobile device.
Specific functionality for Accenture CAS that is being introduced for Windows 8.1 devices includes full interoperation with Microsoft Office, and the native interface of the device is maintained while the platform is in use.
“Today’s workforce needs technology to work from anywhere, at any time, without any loss of performance,” said Henning Fromme, managing director, Accenture CAS. “Expanding Accenture CAS to interoperate with Windows 8.1 devices will allow our consumer goods clients to harness the capabilities of an end-to-end sales platform on their mobile devices, increasing flexibility and efficiency.”
“Accenture CAS on Windows 8.1 will enable consumer goods companies to provide sales teams with the ability to stay connected, collaborate with team members and customers – and perform all necessary functions more securely from mobile devices,” said Doug Caywood, director, Worldwide Consumer Goods at Microsoft. “The interoperation with Microsoft Office delivers the enterprise-grade capabilities clients need to empower a mobile workforce.”
