Through working together, Accenture and Blue Yonder have helped a number of clients worldwide address the most pressing supply chain challenges with cloud-based solutions. For example, Accenture and Blue Yonder have previously worked together to help Essity, a health and personal care firm in Europe and North America, to create a central transport control tower during the COVID-19 pandemic to gain transparency and increase efficiency. As a result, Essity was able to mitigate the impact on its business due to better decision-making processes that allow the company to leapfrog the competition.
