Amtrak selects Accenture to design, deploy ERP solution

25 Sep 2008

US intercity passenger train, Amtrak, has awarded Accenture a multi-year contract to develop and implement enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions to standardize key areas of its business operations.

Under the contract, Accenture's initial task is to develop a blueprint for Amtrak's strategic asset management initiative, which is a phased approach to streamlining its business processes. For the longer term, Accenture will deliver solutions for Amtrak's ERP infrastructure and help consolidate a number of disparate information systems to help Amtrak increase productivity and better leverage resources and infrastructure.

'When the deployment is complete, Amtrak will be able to operate more holistically across the entire enterprise, rather than managing individual silos,' said Jerry Briggs, managing director of Accenture's US federal practice, 'Having a single view of the enterprise will enable Amtrak to realize efficiencies in many areas, including scheduling and maintenance, both of which ultimately can have a positive impact on the passenger travel experience.'
