Few companies in the world have such a combination of the scalability, quality and reputation, and an industry experience of over 20 years long", commented Auriga’s General Manager Andrei Pronin.
"The companies on The Global Outsourcing 100 and The World’s Best Outsourcing Advisors lists are proven leaders and rising stars," Corbett said. "They are the companies you want to partner with to achieve success and better outsourcing outcomes.|"
Global Outsourcing 100 recognizes the world’s leading outsourcing service providers from all over the world, covering the full spectrum of outsourcing services. For these rankings, compiled by an independent jury, companies are evaluated based on four critical characteristics: size and growth; customer references; organizational competencies; and management capabilities. The Global Outsourcing 100 list, with its rigorous application and judging process, is an authoritative reference for clients seeking the best outsourcing companies in the industry.
"Inclusion in Global Outsourcing 100 and this sub-list in particular acknowledges the highest level of service quality and uncompromised reputation of Auriga. In addition, unlike the majority of top global providers, Auriga, with its 300 employees, is of the right size and better carved for software R&D projects than many industry giants. Characteristically for new software development, you don’t need a huge team to create a superb product. A few talented and right-minded engineers can do more than dozens and hundreds of ‘engineering resources’ ", Mr. Pronin emphasized.
