Accenture, a global management consulting, technology services and outsourcing company, has announced that it is providing Archroma, a global leader in specialty chemicals for the textile, paper and emulsions sectors, with a range of finance and accounting (F&A) and procurement business process services across the enterprise.

The project supports Archroma's efforts to operate processes more efficiently and effectively while improving decision making and business outcomes through insights gained from automation and data analytics.
