The ranking is the basic source of knowledge and reference for global corporations seeking partners in the outsourcing sector. The list includes companies from all over the world that provide BPO, KPO and advisory services.
'This is a great success for a Polish company,' emphasises Jan Smela, President of the Management Board of Ericpol. 'On the 20th anniversary of operation we find ourselves among 100 excellent companies from all over the world. It is a great summary of Ericpol's achievements so far and a result of the work of our engineers combined with tremendous trust of our clients who commission us with the development of their products, many of which are crucial for the development of their businesses. All of this takes place in a setting of global competition, which makes our success taste even sweeter'.
Every year, the The Global Outsourcing 100 list opens with the world's largest companies employing over 100,000 people. The list is composed on the basis of a number of criteria. These include the financial result and its growth, the number of employees, locations where services have been offered, effectiveness of the management and references from clients.
'This distinction strengthens the recognisability of our company as a solid partner specialising in advanced technologies. The title of a "Rising Star" of the The Global Outsourcing 100 ranking also definitely strengthens our position in the eyes of potential clients. Ericpol operates development centres in Belarus and Ukraine, which means that by keeping quality standards at 99.9999% of software reliability, we can effectively compete with companies from the Far East and entire Europe,' says Paweł Szczerkowski, Director General.
