IBA Group Ranks as Leader in The Global Outsourcing 100
The International Association of Outsourcing Professionals ranked IBA Group in the Leaders Category of The Global Outsourcing 100 in a special advertising feature of the April 3, 2006 issue of FORTUNE® magazine.
April 3, 2006, Prague, Czech Republic. The International Association of Outsourcing Professionals (IAOP) published The Global Outsourcing 100, the first-ever listing of the world's top outsourcing service providers in a special advertising feature of the April 3, 2006 issue of FORTUNE® magazine. Companies are ranked according to 18 criteria, including revenue growth, number of employees, the skills and training of their workforce, the number of technical and business certifications they have secured, the track record of the management team, and the quality of customer service. Since the industry is comprised of two types of players: larger, more established organizations (Leaders) and smaller, fast-growing companies (Rising Stars), the IAOP created two separate ratings. Leaders and Rising Stars were judged separately. The Global Outsourcing 100 features 65 Leaders and 35 Rising Stars.
IBA Group was ranked number 59 in the Leaders Category, with services in information and communication technology management, document management, and financial management. Sergei Levteev, IBA Group President, shared his experience of global IT outsourcing in the April 3, 2006 issue of FORTUNE® magazine, saying: “IT departments are increasingly expected to achieve the impossible — working with tight budgets, limited resources, and time constraints. Outsourcing to Eastern Europe, where labor costs are lower and talent is plentiful, can serve as a key strategy in addressing these challenges”.
