Accenture announces Accenture Song

Accenture today announced that Accenture Interactive – parent company of The Monkeys in New Zealand – will now go to market as Accenture Song.

The move reflects the company’s post-pandemic services that reinvent customer connections, sales, commerce and marketing and business innovation to meet clients’ accelerated demand for business growth through sustained customer relevance at the ever-changing speed of life.

Building on Accenture’s longstanding culture of change, the name Accenture Song conveys an enduring and universal form of human craft, connection, inspiration, technical prowess and experience—unleashing the imagination and ideas of its people to deliver tangible results.

“Accenture Song symbolises the post pandemic growth journey we’re on with our clients,” says David Droga, CEO and Creative Chairman, Accenture Song. 

“Since its infancy, Accenture Interactive has helped clients build and grow their business by being experience-led. Today’s needs are strikingly different. To capture the next waves of growth, businesses now need to operate at the speed of life, perpetually demonstrating their relevance to their customers, their people and the world at-large.

We have the best talent in the business – people who will help shape the futures of many industries. Combining the forces of creativity and technology help us not only see problems differently, but also solve them with simplicity and scale. As Accenture Song, our opportunities are boundless, both for our clients and for our people,” adds Droga.

Soon-to-be published research from Accenture Song found that nearly 90 percent of C-suite executives say that the current needs of customers and employees are changing faster than leaders can change their businesses, emphasising the demand for new growth models.

“The pandemic fundamentally changed how B2C and B2B companies must engage with customers and employees; the speed at which they need to operate and innovate; and the opportunities to create new products, services and growth models,” says Julie Sweet, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Accenture.

“The companies that will lead in the next decade will undertake total enterprise reinvention, and Accenture Song is uniquely operating at the intersection of creativity, technology, intelligence and industry to help our clients reinvent connections and meaningful experiences, including in the metaverse continuum, sales, commerce, marketing and new business platforms. From idea to build to operate with strategic managed services, we are enabling our clients to access ideas, talent and results much faster.” 

Accenture Song – which is projected to hit $14 billion in revenue by the end of FY22 (August 31, 2022) – works with future-facing brands including Coinbase, General Mills’ Blue Buffalo and Shiseido. Additionally, Accenture Song is teaming with Capri Holdings, a global fashion, luxury group consisting of the iconic brands Versace, Jimmy Choo and Michael Kors to translate its rich in-store luxury shopping experience to a digital experience that aligns with the unique desires of their customers and accelerate sustainable growth.

The more than 40 acquisitions from over the past decade will begin to go to market as Accenture Song to strengthen Accenture’s synergies in product innovation, experience design, marketing and commerce.

However, for The Monkeys in New Zealand, there is no change, yet.

Mark Green, co-Founder and Group CEO The Monkeys | Lead Accenture Interactive ANZ says: “Accenture Interactive is now Accenture Song – internally and externally in the global market. Accenture Interactive as a name, will be sunset. Locally this means that Fjord will also transition to Accenture Song over the coming months. The journey for each acquisition will be different and at this moment The Monkeys will retain their name. We will continue to work with global, our clients and our people on this new stage for Accenture Song.”

Droga5 will continue to operate under its own brand name.
