Management and technology consultancy BearingPoint announced that it has acquired Paris-based Steerio, an engagement platform (SaaS) that leverages smart analytics to push teamwork, feedback and decision-making into the digital age. With the acquisition, BearingPoint expands its portfolio of team and project management assets and enhances its People & Strategy offering that focuses on the people dimension of a company’s strategy.

“It is another tool for us to use and leverage for better teamwork, knowledge transfer, and more innovation. And it also empowers employees and helps them take ownership and be entrepreneurs.”
The acquisition is part of a bigger strategic move: the independent consulting firm has been investing for years in new and better ways of working. This includes innovative project and team management and collaboration solutions across business units, countries and teams for more innovation, agile-working, and remote and mobile working – an approach embedded in the firm’s Strategy 2025, which puts people in the center. To accelerate this ambition, BearingPoint also created and included data-driven digital assets and managed services in its portfolio.

Steerio joins BearingPoint’s portfolio of team and project management assets such as Active Manager and enhances its People & Strategy offering. BearingPoint said Steerio will be rolled out to all projects of a certain size and complexity and will form a substantial pillar of the way the firm delivers consulting projects.
“The new normal demands that we create and bring to life new ways of working and related offerings,” said Kiumars Hamidian, Managing Partner BearingPoint. “Putting people in the center is a major ambition driving our Strategy 2025, and the acquisition of Steerio fits well with our portfolio of offerings because Steerio is both people-centric and data-driven at the same time. The Steerio platform opens even more innovative ways to collaborate across teams and firms for the best possible outcomes for our clients.”
