Bamboo Rose Showcased in Accenture Customer Innovation Network


BOSTON, Jan. 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Bamboo Rose, the multi-enterprise product and supply chain platform, today announced it would be featured within the world-leading professional services firm, Accenture’s Customer Innovation Network Milan. As part of this collaboration, an interactive Bamboo Rose platform demonstration will support Accenture consultants showing food retail and consumer packaged goods (CPG) clients how they can revolutionize their product development, sourcing, and supply chain strategies to differentiate in competitive consumer markets.

In 2017, Accenture launched its Customer Innovation Center in Milan, Italy— one of the company’s largest innovation hubs for the professional retail, fashion, and consumer goods communities. The Milan Innovation Center, alongside sister facilities in Chicago and Singapore, make up the company’s broader innovation network, an incubator initiative focused on creating groundbreaking, state-of-the-art solutions for clients looking to break through the disruption of today’s corporate environments.

Accenture selected the Bamboo Rose Multi-Enterprise Platform as its choice technology to carry out emerging best practices around private brand innovation, supplier collaboration, traceability and compliance, and meeting consumers in their moment of need in a post-pandemic era. This collaboration illustrates how retailers, brands, and suppliers can streamline and accelerate product design and delivery through partnership with their entire business community.

“At the Customer Innovation Network Milan, we’re laser focused on driving client value through hands on learning and collaboration; working along with Bamboo Rose we are giving clients the possibility to further learn the business value that a multi-enterprise product development and supply chain approach can drive,” said Maria Mazzone, the Lead at Accenture Customer Innovation Network Milan.

“I’ve long admired the industry expertise and transformation that Accenture drives for its client base and I’m impressed with how the firm is bringing together industry luminaries and hands on learning in their innovation hubs,” said Sue Welch, CEO of Bamboo Rose. “We’re delighted to be showcased in Accenture’s Milan innovation hub and that our Bamboo Rose Multi-Enterprise Platform will be used as an enabler of product development, sourcing, and supply chain innovation for Accenture clients in the food retail and CPG markets.”
