NEWTOWN, Pa., June 07, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EPAM Systems, Inc. (NYSE:EPAM), a leading global provider of product development and software engineering solutions, today announced that it was recognized on The 2016 Global Outsourcing 100® (GO100) list, which acknowledges the world’s best outsourcing service providers and advisors. The list is managed by the International Association for Outsourcing Professionals® (IAOP®) and published annually by FORTUNE® Content Marketing & Strategies, in a special advertising feature produced by IAOP.
EPAM ranked as a top company and well above average in four out of five categories, including size and growth, customer references, programs for innovation and corporate social responsibility programs. EPAM was also awarded with a Super Star for Sustained Excellence for its continued recognition on the GO100 list.
“We are pleased to be recognized, once again, as one of the best outsourcing providers in the world,” said Elaina Shekhter, CMO, EPAM. “As we continue our industry-leading growth story, we are reshaping the model of outsourcing by bringing a unique combination of product development, digital orchestration and deep engineering capabilities to service our global portfolio of clients as they navigate continuing waves of technology change. With a presence in 25 countries and a unique approach to agile, distributed delivery, we’ve created a model for collaboration that goes beyond outsourcing and delivers proven business results.”
The GO100 list includes both established global firms, referred to as “Leaders” as well as smaller growing firms referred to as “Rising Stars.” Companies are first organized by Leader or Rising Star criteria and then evaluated based on five judging categories. Judging is based on a rigorous scoring methodology that includes an independent review by a panel of IAOP customer members with extensive experience in selecting outsourcing service providers and advisors for their organizations. All companies included on the list will have demonstrated their global excellence; full “stars” will be awarded to all companies distinguishing themselves in one or more judging categories.
EPAM was awarded stars for size and growth measured by revenue, employees and global presence; customer references demonstrated through high value for top customers; programs for innovation demonstrated through specific programs and resulting outcomes that produce new forms of value for customers; and corporate social responsibility shown through corporate programs and outcomes that address topics such as community involvement and development, human rights, and environmental impacts.
“Buyers understand there are hundreds of qualified service providers and advisors out there, but what they really need to understand now is what makes each one exceptional,” said IAOP CEO, Debi Hamill. “The Global Outsourcing 100 list has done just that. We’re proud to recognize EPAM for being among the highest rated companies in customer references, programs for innovation and corporate social responsibility as well as size and growth.”
