Late 2016 update request[edit]

Hi all, I'm back with another round of updates. These changes are mainly factual updates and freshening up numbers. Also, I'm hoping that two more recent edits—the Industry parameter in the infobox and the company description in the lead sentence—could be reverted as they are not entirely accurate. To help clarify what I'm asking for, I've separated my requests below by section.

As noted here in the past, I have a conflict of interest as this request is made on behalf of Accenture as part of my work with Beutler Ink, via which I am currently contracted to work on Accenture-related articles by PR agency Burson-Marsteller.

Infobox
  • My proposed infobox updates includes an edit to the Industry, Revenue, Operating income, Net income, Total assets, Total equity and Number of employees parameters.
Introduction
  • My proposed update for the intro would change the company description back to the wording I'd proposed, and was implemented, in my July edit request. It also adds updated figures with 2016 net revenues, employees and percentage of the Fortune Global 500 list as Accenture clients.
Recent awards and honours
  • Finally, I propose either updating the existing bullet point on Accenture's Fortune Global 500 ranking OR adding a new bullet with the 2016 number.

As always, I'm happy to answer any questions. Thanks in advance! 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 14:07, 26 October 2016 (UTC)

Early 2017 update request[edit]

Hi all, I'm back with my first request for 2017 on behalf of Accenture via Burson-Marsteller as part of my work with Beutler Ink. I've identified three simple edits I hope you'll agree will make this article better. To avoid confusion, I've separated my requests below by section. Jumping right in:

History
  • In the Formation and early years part of this section, an IP editor added a typo into the article. Can someone delete the word "the" before General Electric?
Marketing, branding and identity
  • The following sentence is outdated: As of 2015, Interbrand ranked Accenture No. 42 on its list of best global brands.
To make this current, editors can replace it with the following: As of 2016, Interbrand ranked Accenture No. 37 of its list of best global brands.[1]
Recent awards and honours
  • The 6th bullet point can be deleted: The firm was named by Fortune magazine as one of the top 100 companies to work for from 2009-2015.
There is a line four bullet points below that is nearly identical, yet is updated to reflect 2016, so the above bullet point is unneccessary.
  • Also, it appears as though some stray coding made it into this section just before the very last bullet point. If you look at the live article, you will see Markup [hide] appears in the list. This should also be removed.

I have a conflict of interest as this request is made on behalf of Accenture as part of my work with Beutler Ink, via which I am currently contracted to work on Accenture-related articles by PR agency Burson-Marsteller.

As always, I'm happy to answer any questions or discuss any of these requested edits Thanks in advance! 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 21:46, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

Spring 2017 update request[edit]

Hi all, I'm back with another request for 2017 on behalf of Accenture via Burson-Marsteller as part of my work with Beutler Ink. I've identified four areas that could be updated, which I've outlined by section below to make it clear what I'm requesting. Essentially, these updates seek to update the article with correct financial information, company typeface, restore a small amount of basic History content and, if possible, update Awards.

Infobox
  • The financial figures for revenue, operating income, net income, and total equity should be updated as per Accenture's 2016 annual report, updates are shown below in green:
Formation and early years
  • An IP editor deleted part of a sentence from the second sentence of Formation and early years in History on February 20. The edit left a gap in content, clarifying when Accenture had its first computer consulting job, and resulted in a poorly written sentence. Below, I've suggested a new version of that paragraph to clean this up—minimal changes are shown in green:
Marketing, branding and identity
  • The third paragraph says Accenture uses the font Rotis Semi Sans. The company's official font is now Graphik, per the announcement for the new logo in February this year (note: I've uploaded a new svg file to update the logo currently used in the infobox). The following citation can be used to mention the new logo version and official font:
<ref name=Underconsideration.com>{{cite web |url=http://www.underconsideration.com/brandnew/archives/new_logo_and_identity_for_accenture.php#.WKcRxDw8LYW |title=New logo and identity for Accenture |date=16 February 2017 |publisher=Brand New |accessdate=18 April 2017}}</ref>
Awards
  • Lastly, an editor on February 20 deleted most of the Awards section, claiming it was "blatant spam". While I agree this section needed to be streamlined, I wonder if editors are willing to update the section, adding back a few of Accenture's more prominent awards and removing the 2014 Forbes ranking. My suggestion follows, with additions in green:

As with my requests here in the past, I have a conflict of interest since this request is made on behalf of Accenture as part of my work with Beutler Ink, via which I am currently contracted to work on Accenture-related articles by PR agency Burson-Marsteller. I'm more than happy to answer any questions or discuss any of these requested edits. Thanks in advance! 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 20:29, 19 April 2017 (UTC)

Done. Again - very well presented. Best wishes. Dormskirk (talk) 22:40, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
Thanks so much for the review and making the changes! 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 02:48, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

Summer 2017 update request[edit]

Hi all, back again with another request on behalf of Accenture via Burson-Marsteller as part of my work with Beutler Ink. I've identified 5 areas where awards and rankings are out-of-date and can be updated with the most recent 2017 rankings.

Introduction

Fortune magazine has again named Accenture the world's most admired Information Technology Services company. Can the last sentence of the introduction be updated?

Awards

Accenture's 2017 rankings on the Forbes Global 2000, Fortune Global 500, DiversityInc.'s Top 50 Companies for Diversity and CR Magazine's 100 Best Corporate Citizens are now available. Can those rankings be updated? (The other awards in that section can be retained as they have already been updated to 2017.)

As with my requests here in the past, I have a conflict of interest since this request is made on behalf of Accenture as part of my work with Beutler Ink, via which I am currently contracted to work on Accenture-related articles by PR agency Burson-Marsteller. I'm more than happy to answer any questions or discuss any of these requested edits. Thanks in advance! 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 19:39, 26 July 2017 (UTC)

Done. Best wishes. Dormskirk (talk) 20:35, 26 July 2017 (UTC)
Thanks so much, Dormskirk! Is it ok for the previous rankings to remain in the article or better to remove them? I believe in the past another editor mentioned preferring to remove older awards, though I could go either way. Thanks! 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 20:45, 26 July 2017 (UTC)
Hi - I don't think it makes any difference. I am happy to leave them. Dormskirk (talk) 20:47, 26 July 2017 (UTC)
Okey doke! Thanks again. 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 21:02, 26 July 2017 (UTC)
