IAOP Releases Companies Named to Global Outsourcing 100 and World's Best Outsourcing Advisors

POUGHKEEPSIE, NY--(Marketwire - February 16, 2009) - The International Association of Outsourcing Professionals™ (IAOP™) today announced the companies named to its annual Global Outsourcing 100™ and new World's Best Outsourcing Advisors lists.

The unranked lists of the world's outsourcing best service providers and advisors were released at the opening day of IAOP's annual conference, The 2009 Outsourcing World Summit® at La Costa Resort & Spa in Carlsbad, California, that runs through Feb. 18.

The outsourcing service providers named to the fourth annual listing of Global Outsourcing 100 includes companies from around the world providing the full spectrum of outsourcing services. For the first time, the top consulting, legal and advisory firms also were named to IAOP's new World's Best Outsourcing Advisors list.

The association recognized the companies named to the lists at its 12th annual summit that brought together hundreds of outsourcing customers, advisors and providers from around the globe to share strategies for success in today's economy.

"Each year the competition to be named to the top 100 list continues to reach higher levels, as the outsourcing industry continues to grow and mature in many markets. This year, the judges evaluated the most diverse set of applicants we've ever had, with ongoing strong interest from Asia-Pacific and Europe," said Jagdish Dalal, Managing Director, Thought Leadership, IAOP and chairman of the judges' panel.

"Getting named to The Global Outsourcing 100 and The World's Best Outsourcing Advisors is a great recognition, particularly given the strong competition, and these companies should be proud of achieving excellence in the field," he said.

Rankings of companies on both lists will be unveiled in a special advertising section in the May 4 issue of FORTUNE® magazine.

IAOP also announced the first availability of its Global Outsourcing 100 Plus, a new industry-wide report providing detailed analysis and insights on outsourcing service providers, advisors and consultants. This report is now available for purchase.
