PwC has announced that it has completed the acquisition of Olivehorse Consulting Services Ltd, a consultancy specialising in supply chain management.
Founded in 2012, Olivehorse provides end-to-end supply chain planning and management solutions to clients across SAP, Anaplan and Kinaxis technologies. The consultancy is reportedly one of very few independents with SAP Gold Partner and supply chain management recognised expertise accreditations.
PwC’s acquisition of Olivehorse will reportedly strengthen its supply chain capability. According to the firm, demand for supply chain expertise has increased rapidly during the pandemic and will continue to be a key area of need for many clients.
Alongside its market offerings around S4Hana, finance transformation and Cloud, PwC said it believes its improved supply chain management offering will enhance its offering to clients.
Alistair Kett, Consulting Supply Chain and Operations leader at PwC, said: “We know that this is a market which is hugely important to our clients and to the people they serve and we are proud to have enhanced the value that we can bring.
“As the world recovers from the global pandemic we know that issues of supply, scarcity and disruption will require new, innovative and technology driven solutions. Our team is very well positioned to help our clients solve these challenges.”
Fred Akuffo, co-founder and managing director of Olivehorse, added: “I am delighted to complete this deal and, along with all of Olivehorse, become part of PwC, a global network with talented people and resources, which will help us to bring greater value to our clients.”
