BearingPoint alliance partners ABeam and West Monroe Partners also cited in the report

Amsterdam/London, December 18, 2014 – Leading industry analysis firm Gartner recognizes BearingPoint in its latest report on business operations consulting. In the 2014 ‘Magic Quadrant for Business Operations Consulting Services, Worldwide’ report, Gartner positioned BearingPoint as a challenger for its completeness of vision and ability to execute.

The firm is well known for its operational change management, leadership in end-to-end supply chain management and innovative enablement capabilities as well as smart analytics tools HyperCube, the emissions calculator LogEC and the Supply Chain Navigator, a methodology to drive strategy down to operational results. Most recently, LogEC was - as first emissions calculator in the market - certified to major European regulation standards, enabling clients to calculate their emissions in a transparent, standardized and accepted way across Europe.

With its global alliance network partners ABeam and West Monroe Partners, BearingPoint helps clients worldwide to design and optimize their supply chain, reduce risk and control operational costs.

We believe this industry recognition demonstrates the leadership of BearingPoint, ABeam and West Monroe Partners in delivering innovative solutions to our clients in the supply chain management and operations space. I feel that with this recognition Gartner acknowledges our way of working together with our clients for measurable results.
