Marriott International Inc., of Bethesda, the largest publicly traded hotel chain in the U.S., announced it will transfer its Louisville, Tenn.-based Marriott Business Services finance and accounting unit to New York-based Accenture, a global management consulting, technology services and outsourcing company.
Accenture will provide F&A services to Marriott and its franchisees, starting in August, with full completion envisioned by early September.
In conjunction with the transition, Accenture will create a new business service, Accenture Hospitality Services, built in part around the operations and capabilities coming from Marriott’s MBS unit.
Accenture Hospitality Services will provide management consulting, technology and business process outsourcing services to companies in the hospitality industry.
Financial details of the arrangement were not disclosed.
