Accenture has established a new facility in the West Loop of Chicago in a move to provide customers greater access to a range of company-made digital and collaboration tools.
The Accenture Digital Hub is built to house more than 500 of the company’s marketing, analytics and mobility specialists who aim to invent and deliver disruptive technologies for clients, Accenture said Friday.
Accenture seeks to give customers the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with artificial intelligence, Internet of Things and voice interaction platforms at the new facility.
Jay Dettling, managing director at Accenture’s interactive business, said the company aims to collaborate with clients to help them drive innovation and manage business outcomes.
The 70,000-square-foot Digital Hub will provide access to a studio by Accenture’s design and innovation unit Fjord and the Accenture Connected Analytics Experience, a collaborative analytics environment for data access.
Accenture added the facility also features configurable collaboration and workspaces built to showcase visual collaboration platforms such as Microsoft‘s Surface Hub.
