NEW YORK -- December 10, 2012

Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has launched a new banking software solution designed to
improve customer insights and increase sales for clients in the banking
industry. With the new Accenture Enterprise Customer System, banks can create
and capitalize on a single customer view to generate greater sales
opportunities, as well as bring more visibility and efficiency to operational
tasks.

Positive customer experiences are becoming increasingly important in the
banking industry, where building trust is essential for most financial
institutions. According to a recent report from leading analyst firm Gartner,
“External differentiation means developing new customer experiences that
support revenue growth and customer retention.^1”

“The Accenture Enterprise Customer System allows banks to gain a single,
consolidated view of customers to create more relevant and valuable
interactions – in short, delivering better services and experiences to
customers across all channels,” said Colin Davies, managing director,
Accenture Software. “This 360 degree view of the customer allows banks to
provide personalized pricing and relevant value-add offerings more easily and
efficiently.”

The Accenture Enterprise Customer System creates a comprehensive, real-time
view of a banking customer’s relationship and history of interactions,
allowing for more informed customer interactions across multiple channels.

With the Accenture Enterprise Customer System, banks can:

  *Improve customer experiences: Provide informed customer interactions and
    optimal service based on a single, real-time customer view across all
    banking channels.
  *Increase sales opportunities: With a complete view of a customer
    relationship in the channel, the Accenture Enterprise Customer System
    enables informed cross-selling opportunities with higher success rates.
  *Reduce operational inefficiencies: Accenture’s unique technology for
    channel and system integration allows for aggregation of data from
    disparate systems, for an easily accessible and complete customer
    information and history without costly data migration.

“With decades of experience in the financial services industry, Accenture
understands the strategic role of technology in today’s highly competitive
banking market,” said Juan Pedro Moreno, global managing director of
Accenture’s banking industry practice. “Accenture Enterprise Customer System
is proof of our continued commitment to drive new innovations in the banking
industry and add to our arsenal of tools that help clients better understand
