AT&T is providing Accenture with a platform that allows it to collaborate with clients, suppliers and others by creating the experience of being in the same room, whether the participants are down the street or halfway around the world, the two companies said today.  

      

Under terms of a non-exclusive agreement between the two companies, Accenture is gaining access to the AT&T Business Exchange, an inherent feature of the AT&T Telepresence Solution that allows multiple companies in different locations to connect to one another using Cisco Telepresence video conferencing technology. 

 

Accenture has 50 rooms around the world equipped with telepresence.  The locations are widely used to facilitate meetings between employees in remote locations.

 

With access to the AT&T Business Exchange, employees are now also able to link with parties outside of Accenture for business-to-business video conferencing.
