Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has signed an agreement to acquire Customer Management IT and SirfinPA, a pair of jointly-owned Italian technology consultancies supporting the public sector and specializing in justice and public safety. The acquisition aligns with Accenture’s focus on helping Italian public service organizations build their digital core and deliver enhanced services to the citizens they serve.

Founded in 2010, with offices in Rome, Naples and Cosenza, Customer Management IT and SirfinPA are leading players within the Italian IT sector. Recognized for their work across the country’s national justice ecosystem, Customer Management IT and SirfinPA have supported the Italian Ministry of Justice by building and supporting technology applications in the central criminal justice department and have provided digital infrastructure for trials.

With a multidisciplinary staff of approximately 300 employees, Customer Management IT and SirfinPA provide system and application integration and management services, cloud application development, infrastructure management, and fleet management for desktops and servers.

"Following the acquisition of leading AI organization Ammagamma, we are continuing to strengthen our services and offerings for the Italian public sector with these two leading companies which bring several decades of industry experience,” said Mauro Macchi, chairman and CEO of Accenture Italy. “This acquisition boosts our ability and capacity to support Italian public sector innovation and help our government clients advance their transformation journeys.”

The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to complete in the coming months.
