MCLEAN, Va., June 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Forrester Research Inc., an independent technology research company based in Cambridge, Mass., has issued a report on Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology that cites the
RFID expertise of BearingPoint, Inc. (NYSE: BE), one of the world's largest business consulting and systems integration firms.

In a "Quick Take" issued by Forrester Research on June 6, "RFID Labs Aren't Created Equal" describes the research labs several large consulting and technology vendors have built to showcase each firm's particular approach to
the supply chain technology. The Forrester report highlights the "pragmatic, process-centric" approach taken by BearingPoint's "RFID Centers of Excellence" in Dallas and Tyson's Corner, Virginia, as part of a broader network of
BearingPoint solution centers that focus on such leading edge technologies as smart cards, biometrics and new integration models.

"BearingPoint's lab indicates a strategy that favors process over business model innovation," said the report. "The firm has tightly coupled its lab and R&D work with sales and delivery, which allows BearingPoint to more easily
transform innovations into products." The report states that BearingPoint's RFID skills are strongest in areas where it already has significant customer demand, such as the government sector and in supply chain disciplines.

Located in BearingPoint's Internet Innovation Center in Dallas, the company's RFID Center of Excellence provides a global capability for RFID research and development, client-facing demonstrations and pilot/proof of concept development. The Dallas center and an expanding RFID Center of Excellence in Tyson's Corner focus on state-of-the-art research and development in RFID. They are supported by a full suite of hardware, software and network infrastructure from all BearingPoint's external team members involved in automatic identification technologies from bar-coding and RFID to intelligent sensors.
