The Stable’s expertise and capabilities to help clients reinvent and accelerate their omnichannel commerce experience

Accenture, has agreed to acquire The Stable — a commerce agency focused on helping consumer brands build and operate their own digital commerce channels as well as manage their brand and sales performance across key North American retailers. The agreement reinforces Accenture’s continued investments in commerce to help clients accelerate growth and sustain relevance. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Recognized as one of Inc. Magazine’s fastest growing private companies in 2021, The Stable has a track record of growing consumer brands of all sizes, stages, and verticals through omnichannel retail and direct-to-consumer (DTC) commerce.

The Stable will enhance Accenture Song’s global commerce transformation expertise and its ability to rapidly build and operate data-driven digital commerce ecosystems that maximize sales performance and deliver innovative marketing and commerce experiences.

The global digital commerce market is expected to reach $27 trillion in size by 2027. The market’s significant growth coupled with changed customer values and the overall interaction between brands and customers has driven an increased demand for enterprise-wide commerce experience reinvention.

Glen Hartman, Accenture Song’s global lead for commerce services, said: “Today, every company is a commerce company. The B2B and B2C companies that fast-track their commerce transformation across the customers’ entire life journey will grow well into the future. By embedding The Stable’s set of talent and capabilities into Accenture Song’s, we will continue to help our clients meet customers where they are, on their terms and reimagine buying and selling experiences.”
