Quint Wellington Redwood has again been awarded the title World’s Best Outsourcing Advisor by the IAOP, the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals. Quint has made the list of world’s best outsourcing advisors for the seventh year in a row, which also earns it a spot on the Super Stars of the Global Outsourcing 100 list in the Sustained Excellence category.
Alex van den Bergh, Sourcing Advisory partner at Quint, has this to say: “We are proud to be recognized once again as one of the World’s Best Outsourcing Advisors by the IAOP, the leading independent industry association. Our clients have again awarded us the highest possible score for customer satisfaction which motivates us to continue to innovate and improve.”
Since 2016, IAOP has included Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in its assessment. The main focus here is on firms demonstrating how, as outsourcing advisors, they incorporate CSR into their projects. For several years now, Quint has been embedding sustainable sourcing as one of its fundamental principles when executing projects. This recognition for CSR will help Quint to keep sustainability on the agenda of its clients, where it has the greatest impact.
This year once again, a score for Programs for Innovation that was considerably higher than average is proof that Quint is constantly developing its services.
Size and Growth is the only category in which Quint recorded an average score. Mr. Van den Bergh does not see this as a problem. “Becoming the biggest is not our main ambition. We prefer to keep focusing on the things we’re good at, like our unique culture and the partnerships we have with our clients. Currently, we have sufficient size and international presence to fulfill the needs of our clients worldwide.”

Debi Hamill, CEO of IAOP: “We are proud to recognize Quint for being among the highest rated companies in CSR, customer references and programs for innovation. In today’s economy, it is more important than ever for outsourcing buyers to be able to easily identify and select the right company for their outsourcing needs. The Global Outsourcing 100 and World’s Best Advisors lists are the essential tools companies reference to make smarter decisions. They provide companies with valuable insights into the outsourcing industry, leading and emerging service providers and advisors, and key developments to watch.”

Quint focuses on two major changes that are taking place in the world today: digital transformation and the ever-increasing need for sustainability. Technology is a major driver of change. Organizations find it difficult to keep up with fast successive developments and apply them effectively. They question if they are flexible enough to change as required and wonder if they will still be relevant in a few years. We see that under this pressure, organizations have to make fundamental choices regarding business models, management and technology.
In our vision, technology is not the only decisive factor. It is also especially important to have in place the knowledge, leadership and an organizational culture that enable relevant technology to be recognized and converted into value for our clients and their environment.
Quint supports companies with the design and operationalization of their digital strategy. Together, we develop a strategy that enables our clients to adapt quickly and effectively in anticipation of – or in response to – opportunities or threats. We bring technology – and especially its application – to life.
