Located at One Island East in Quarry Bay, Accenture Interactive Studios serves as a catalyst to invent, create and deliver disruptive digital solutions. There clients can get hands-on with and apply leading technologies to solve critical business challenges and reimagine customer experiences in an innovative workspace equipped with all the tools needed to build and test protoypes in an agile manner.

“Our Hong Kong digital studios are meant to inspire – not just our people but also our clients – who want to create the next, transformative customer experiences with us,” said Brian Whipple, global head of Accenture Interactive. “Our goal is to balance forward-thinking innovation with the practicality of applying it now in an environment that promotes agility, co-creation and experimentation to help our clients innovate in the ‘new.’ Together we not only imagine the future but we actually deliver it.”

Accenture Interactive Studios brings together end-to-end digital customer experience services for clients, including digital strategy, creative ideation, service design, marketing campaigns, content and technical implementation. Clients – working with Accenture Interactive teams – are able to tap into a range of forward-thinking capabilities and amenities, including:

  • Digitally enabled, fully configurable workspaces that feature collaboration tools such as the latest conferencing and interactive whiteboards, which allow someone in the room, as well as remotely, to simultaneously write on a whiteboard or tablet as if they were together
  • Function-specific zones, such as a workshop space that enables rapid prototyping and immersive simulation of client environments
  • A design studio by Fjord – the design and innovation unit of Accenture Interactive – that applies design thinking methodologies and rapid prototyping to create engaging digital services
  • A content studio, including post-production facilities, focused on creating, producing and scaling marketing and advertising campaigns globally

“We designed the space to be a manifestation of our principles – it’s all about the experience, for our people and for our clients,” said Jason Chau, head of Accenture Interactive in Greater China. “Through our combination of creativity, marketing and technology, we’re creating a unique services model and value proposition unlike the typical agency or consulting players in the market. And all housed in a progressive workspace meant to inspire and to foster innovation.”

Accenture Studios are a key element of the Accenture Innovation Architecture which brings together the company’s capabilities – from research, ventures and labs to studios, innovation centers and delivery centers – to develop and deliver disruptive innovations for clients, and to scale them faster.

The Hong Kong studios are a critical part of Accenture’s digital business footprint in Greater China, which also includes its Analytics and Mobility businesses. In June, the company launched the Accenture Digital Centre of Excellence (DCoE) in Shanghai. The company plans to expand Accenture Interactive Studios into mainland China in the future.
