Accenture has reported strong growth in its consulting and outsourcing businesses in its latest financial results, which saw revenues leap as customers seek to prosper during tough economic conditions.

In its results statement for the second quarter of 2008, the professional services firm reported an 18% increase in revenue, to £2.81bn.

Its consulting and outsourcing revenues reached £1.7bn and £1.13bn, respectively, which were both 18% up on the same period last year.

Accenture chief executive William Green said the company has seen its highest-ever consultancy bookings, worth £1.9bn out of total new bookings worth £2.2bn.

"Our strong performance in the second quarter reflects the momentum we have seen in the marketplace and the essential nature of our services, as our clients rely on the value we deliver in helping them achieve high performance in a challenging economic environment," said Green.
