Global consulting company BearingPoint has joined with Archon, which deploys registration, title, drivers and motor carrier systems in North America, to pursue opportunities for the development, marketing and implementation of motor vehicle and identity management programs throughout the U.S. and Canada.
McLean, Va.– BearingPoint, Inc., a leading global management and technology consulting firm, announced it has entered into an exclusive teaming relationship with Colorado-based Archon Technologies, Inc., to jointly pursue opportunities to provide information technology solutions for vehicle registration, drivers licensing and revenue management services to state, provincial, territorial and local motor vehicle departments in the United States and Canada.
