The Getronics Workspace Alliance places 30th in IAOP’s Global Outsourcing 100®

Earlier this year, it was announced that the Getronics Workspace Alliance had been chosen as one of the Top 100 Outsourcing Companies by the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals ® (IAOP®).
In July, the final rankings for 2012’s best Outsourcing service providers – The Global Outsourcing 100® were published, placing the GWA at Number 30 on the list.

The quote below is from IAOP’s announcement on their website:

“This year’s rankings for the Global Outsourcing 100 and World’s Best Outsourcing Advisors represent the best in outsourcing, hailing from every corner of the globe” said IAOP CEO Debi Hamill. “Getting selected shows these companies came out on top following a rigorous application process and unbiased competition judged by an independent panel of recognized industry leaders in outsourcing.”

The ranking considers not only IT companies, but also those that fall within the overall Outsourcing category. Companies were judged on 4 critical characteristics: size and growth, customer references, organisational competencies and management capabilities.

Each company on the list is recognised for a key strength and the GWA’s is ‘Balanced performance’.

In addition to the top 100 ranking, IAOP also produces 80 sub lists that provide customers of Outsourced services with an invaluable tool for selecting the right service provider. The sub lists are categorised by service area, industry focus, and geography. The GWA appears on the Leaders in ICT sub list in the service area category and is also present on the Leaders in Technology (Hardware & Software) sub list within the industry focus category, showing our position as a leading provider of technology services to the Outsourcing industry.

The Global Outsourcing 100 was also featured in the July 23rd Global 500 issue of Fortune® magazine (US Edition). In this special section, rankings, selection process details and company strengths are included.

The Global Outsourcing 100, which is in its 7th year, is considered a highly important independent and objective reference tool for companies looking for new and expanded relationships with the best outsourcing services providers.

Our placement at number 30 on their list and on a number of their sub lists is a great demonstration of how the GWA is seen by IAOP as a serious Global player.
