Quint awarded top ratings in outsourcing for third consecutive year
New York, April 2016 – IAOP® (the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals) has once again named consultancy firm Quint Wellington Redwood on the World’s Best Outsourcing Advisors® list. An independent, international panel of judges awarded Quint the highest possible scores in the categories Customer References, Awards & Certifications and Programs for Innovation. IAOP® is the global, standard-setting association for outsourcing professionals and has more than 120,000 members and affiliates worldwide.
Netherlands-based Quint has achieved top scores in 2014, 2015 and 2016 – and is a World’s Best Outsourcing Advisor for the third year in succession, rating ahead of many major players. As Quint has been named on the IAOP® list five times in a row, the consultancy firm is now also listed as one of the Super Stars of the Global Outsourcing 100® in the category “sustained excellence”.
The Customer References category carries the most weight in the total evaluation of a company. Quint achieved the maximum score here. In the Awards & Certifications category too, Quint was awarded the highest possible score of 8, significantly higher than the market average. This indicates that every year Quint receives widely acknowledged, competitive and public recognition for the quality of its services and the results achieved through them for clients. With another maximum score of 8 for Programs for Innovation, again considerably higher than the market average, Quint demonstrates consistent service provision, methods and specific skills in the area of continuous innovation. With this hat trick, for the third consecutive year Quint is a World’s Best Outsourcing Advisor, now with the designation of proven “sustained excellence”.
Top ratings three years running
“It’s wonderful that Quint has been named a World’s Best Outsourcing Advisor for the third time in a row. Achieving such a position is hard enough, staying there is even harder. But we’ve managed to do it,” said Alex van den Bergh, Sourcing Advisory Lead at Quint. “On this list, we are in the company of a number of highly competent, established names for whom we have a great deal of respect. It is to our credit that we are that little bit better, particularly in the areas of delivery quality and customer satisfaction.”
“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 and World’s Best Advisors lists have done just that. We’re proud to recognize Quint Wellington Redwood for being among the highest rated companies in customer references, company awards and certifications, and programs for innovation.”
