BearingPoint evaluated, with its network partners ABeam and West Monroe Partners, in the 2012 CRM Service Providers Magic Quadrant, Worldwide

London/Frankfurt, October 19, 2012 – In their latest report evaluating CRM service providers, Gartner has named BearingPoint as a "visionary". Gartner also cites BearingPoint’s network partners ABeam and West Monroe Partners in this study.

Eric Falque, Partner at BearingPoint and Customer Management lead said:

“We believe this industry recognition demonstrates the leadership of BearingPoint, ABeam and West Monroe Partners in delivering innovative solutions to our clients in the customer relation management and digital strategies.”

“Our clients select BearingPoint for its business acumen and industry expertise, illustrated by our ratio of business consulting compared to technology consulting, which is the highest in the industry.”

BearingPoint has demonstrated at many occasions it is a thought leader in the customer management and digital strategy space. Most recently, "Addressing customer paradoxes in the Digital World" was a feature in the first BearingPoint Institute Report while "Who will be the winners in the mobile payments battle?" was published in the second Report. The BearingPoint Institute Reports are also available as an iPad app.

“Digital media and channels are changing customer preferences and, in turn, enterprise relationships with customers, presenting both opportunities for new entrants and challenges for established companies,” said Mazen Ghalayini, leader of West Monroe’s CRM practice. “As a network, we are focused on helping our clients innovate with respect to CRM strategies and implementation in order to respond to changing customer preferences.”
