Milestone marks a successful year of global expansion, client wins and corporate social responsibility
MONTERREY, Mexico, May 8, 2013 -- Softtek, founder of the nearshore industry and leading global IT services provider dedicated to maximizing the value of applications, announced today that it has achieved the firm’s highest position to-date in the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals’® (IAOP®) prestigious Global Outsourcing 100 list. In addition to ranking as the 30th best outsourcer in the world, Softtek is ranked in the Leader category, a designation that it has now received for 5 consecutive years.
Softtek was also chosen as a Best 20 Leader in 5 categories: Financial Services (Banking, Markets); Technology (Hardware & Software); Discrete Manufacturing; Information Technology Services and Transaction Processing Services. The firm was, moreover, chosen as one of the Best 10 Companies in South/Central America.
This ranking follows significant company achievements for Softtek, which recently acquired the Silicon Valley-based Systech Integrators, Inc., launched an Enterprise Mobility-specific Center of Excellence (CoE) in Beijing, China and was recognized by the Mexican Center of Philanthropy as a “Socially Responsible Company” for the 4th year in a row.
Blanca Treviño, President and CEO of Softtek, said, “We are thrilled to be recognized by IAOP for the innovation and business value we bring to our clients. Not only does this ranking provide a comprehensive view of the industry, it shows our tremendous growth from last year, demonstrating our commitment to excellence. We’ve moved up by nearly 20 spots, making this our highest ranking to-date.” Treviño continued, “I would like to thank the IAOP judges and Softtek’s team of over 8,000 global associates who are responsible for the great work we do every day.”
“As applicants continually raise the bar and as the outsourcing industry continues to grow and mature in many markets, competition is tougher,” said Jag Dalal, Managing Director of Thought Leadership, IAOP and chairman of the judges' panel. “Being named to The Global Outsourcing 100 is a great achievement, particularly given the strong competition, and we are proud to recognize Softtek for their excellence.”
The 2013 Global Outsourcing 100 recognizes the world’s best outsourcing service providers and advisors. These rankings are based on applications received and are then judged by an independent panel of experienced outsourcing buyers on four critical characteristics: size and growth; customer references; organizational competencies; and management capabilities.
