Softtek Ranks in IAOP’s 2013 Global Outsourcing 100 List ® for Five Years in a Row

Honor comes as Softtek completes 2nd acquisition in 6 months, marking continued growth & expansion

MONTERREY, Mexico--()--For five consecutive years, the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals® (IAOP®) has named Softtek in its list of the world’s best outsourcing service providers. Softtek is founder of the nearshore industry and a leading global IT services provider dedicated to maximizing the value of applications. The firm has been ranked in the Leader category, a designation it has also received for five years.

Softtek receives this recognition on the heels of its second major acquisition in less than six months. In August 2012, Softtek acquired SAP specialist SCAi and its U.S. subsidiary VTEC Group Inc. Then, in February 2013, Softtek acquired Systech, a global IT provider headquartered in Silicon Valley and focused 100% on SAP solutions. The acquisitions make Softtek the first truly global nearshore provider –with Global Delivery Centers in Mexico, China, Brazil, Argentina, Spain and India – and a leading SAP player in Latin America.

Speaking on Softtek’s continued success, President& CEO Blanca Treviño said, “We take pride in being recognized as one of the best outsourcing service providers in the world by the IAOP®. This year’s ranking comes as Softtek celebrates its 30th anniversary as one of Latin America’s leading technology voices, and as we continue to expand our award-winning services portfolio to our roster of Global 1000 clients.”

“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.”

"As 2013 begins to see moderate growth in the economy, choosing the right outsourcing partners will be more important than ever," said IAOP Chairman Michael Corbett. “The Global Outsourcing 100 list helps companies easily identify partners that will help them emerge as leaders."

The 2013 Global Outsourcing 100 recognizes the world’s best outsourcing service providers and advisors. These rankings are based on applications received and evaluated by an independent judging panel organized by IAOP.
