Success Story:  Accenture, Shell and APX.

Together APX and Accenture are driving new innovation inside one of the world’s great companies – Shell.   This partnership has delivered new use cases in areas ranging from field technicians to laboratory scientists.

One of the most exciting and powerful was creating a new way to collaborate.  Accenture built an integrated solution to bring the see-what-I-see capabilities of Skylight to the pervasive UC solution of Lync.  For the first time, the hands-on worker and the knowledge worker are connected in real-time, sharing information and helping each other doing their most critical tasks.
