Dabur India Limited on Thursday said it has signed Accenture to outsource its information technology infrastructure and application management function.

Under the 10-year agreement, Accenture would manage Dabur's IT functions, including applications management, and provide consulting assistance on the company's business plans, a Dabur release said in New Delhi.

Accenture would also design, build and run IT systems for the supply chain and secondary sales functions.

The detailed service level agreement would be defined in the next month and the existing IT employees of Dabur will transition to Accenture with consistent terms of employment, it said.

"The outsourcing model will help us concentrate on our core business areas of marketing and distribution of consumer products. This relationship will help the company gain access to global IT best practices. Apart from strategic inputs on IT, Accenture would provide comprehensive consultancy to Dabur to achieve our strategic vision," Sunil Duggal, CEO, Dabur India Ltd, was quoted as saying after signing the agreement.
