By Ria Sharma
The International Association of Outsourcing Professionals, which has 120 thousand members and affiliates worldwide, has announced that Accenture has been named the world’s best outsourcing provider for the fifth consecutive year and KPMG topped the list of leading advisors to the industry in the 2012 Global Outsourcing 100 rankings. Indian giants Infy and HCL are in the Top 3.
Ranked among the top 10 service providers, along with Accenture, are, in order: (2) Infosys, (3) HCL Technologies, (4) CBRE, (5) ISS, (6) NCR, (7) Wipro Technologies, (8) Capgemini, (9) CSC and (10) TeleTech.
Information gathered during the selection showed that outsourcing remains a growing segment of business. Average revenue for 2012 Global Outsourcing 100 providers was $1.6 billion, with a growth rate of 6 percent versus 13 percent in 2008.
As a reflection of the tighter employment picture globally, this growth did not result in a growth of employee count for the providers. IAOP found 17,400 employees were engaged in outsourcing on average with 2012 Global Outsourcing providers; representing the same number as in 2008.
Advisors also showed that 2011 was a growth year for business with a revenue growth of 37 percent while growing employment by 12 percent year over year.
The Rising Stars category of smaller fast-growing companies that are ranked numbers 76 to 100 provide a snapshot of outsourcing destinations to watch. The top 10 companies in this category are: (76) Intetics, U.S.; (77) Bleum, China; (78) ReSource Pro, U.S.; (79) Scicom, Malaysia; (80) Nagarro, U.S.; (81) Xceed, Egypt; (82) Itransition, U.S.; (83) Freeborders, China; (84) SoftServe, U.S.; and (85) Auriga, Russia.
