Quint again included in IAOP’s 2015 World's Best Outsourcing Advisors list; Highest Rating on Delivery Excellence and Programs for Innovation
Amsterdam/New York, 15 April 2015 – IAOP®, the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals, has once more drawn up the list of the world’s top-20 outsourcing advisors. The independent international expert jury of IAOP accorded Quint Wellington Redwood as the ‘highest rated’ in two of the three categories: ‘Delivery Excellence’ and ‘Programs for Innovation’. In achieving this, Quint, a boutique consultancy firm, has left large consultancies standing.
Full Star – Highest Rated
All consultancies were assessed on four essential features. Quint scores much higher than the average across the market: Customer References (19% above average), Company Recognition (36% above average), Company Certification (74% above average) and Programs for Innovation (122% above average). New this year is the extra weighting on Delivery Excellence (value creation for customers and acknowledgment received within the industry, plus relevant professional certificates at organizational and individual level), and Programs for Innovation (innovation programs that create new forms of value for customers and the market). Quint received the “Full Star - highest rated’ in both categories, and was thus listed the best of all consultancy firms in these categories.
Alex van den Bergh, Sourcing Advisory Lead at Quint, has this to say: “Only by focusing on success and helping our clients to be successful can we make the right impact. The fact that we were awarded ‘highest rated’ for ‘Delivery Excellence’ and ‘Programs for Innovations’ is confirmation of this. At the same time, both within and outside Quint, we have initiated a number of comprehensive innovative initiatives, including Social Enterprise/Sourcing, Cloud Sourcing and Strategy. It is our firm belief that we need this sort of comprehensive innovation to give us that ‘competitive edge’ that our customers appreciate. The recognition that the international jury of IAOP has given us is an inspiration that will help us to continue along this path.” Van den Bergh adds, “This ranking as best in a ‘league of extraordinary companies’ fully confirms that we are recognized as an top player. It gives us the strength to continue promoting our ‘dare to challenge’ mentality.”
“Being named to the World’s Best Advisors list is no easy task,” said Michael Corbett, IAOP Chairman. “IAOP is pleased to recognize Quint Wellington Redwood for their excellence and achievement.”
