Avasant is proud to announce our most recent recognition from in the category of “Excellence in Strategic Partnerships” from the Industry Association of Outsourcing Professionals (IAOP) – a position of honor in the first year of this category’s existence. The 2020 Global Outsourcing 100 recognizes the world's best outsourcing service providers and advisors. This list is based on applications received, and judging is based on a rigorous scoring methodology that includes an independent review by an independent panel of IAOP customer members with extensive experience in selecting outsourcing service providers and advisors for their organizations. "In recent years, we keep seeing more and more Global Outsourcing 100 applicants contribute their success to strategic partnerships," said Debi Hamill, IAOP CEO. "This is something to celebrate, and for this reason, we added it as an option on the GO100 award application. But make no mistake, our new Excellence in Strategic Partnerships program is a stand-alone, admirable recognition, and we're thrilled to honor these organizations.” Avasant CEO and Chairman, Kevin S. Parikh accepted the recognition on behalf of the firm, remarking, “Strategic partnerships are an integral component of the sourcing and digital ecosystem. Over the years it has become a crucial success factor for generating long term value and high ROI engagements with our clients. I’m proud to congratulate the firm on its recognition and to thank IAOP for their important role in recognizing these areas of merit for the outsourcing industry.” The list of companies honored with the Excellence in Strategic Partnerships recognition premieres in a special advertising section of the 2020 FORTUNE 500 issue of FORTUNE alongside the 2020 Global Outsourcing100 list showcasing the best companies in each of the four judging categories, for which Avasant has also been recognized with distinction.
