Westborough, MA – February 5, 2008 – Virtusa Corporation (NASDAQ: VRTU), a global information technology (IT) services company that provides IT consulting, technology implementation and application outsourcing services through an enhanced global delivery model, today announced that it has been included in the 2008 Global Services 100, a list of the top global providers of business and technology services.
Now in its fourth year, The Global Services 100 is a tool for buyers of business and technology services. Judges from Global Services magazine team up with outsourcing experts at neoIT, a consulting firm that specializes in services globalization, to identify and evaluate the leading service providers located on four continents. The evaluation is based upon data provided by the service providers and third parties regarding effective operations, service offerings, client relationships and human capital.
“We are very pleased to be recognized by neoIT and Global Services as one of the top 100 global service providers,” said Kris Canekeratne, Virtusa Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Our enterprise clients highly value us for accelerating their time-to-results using our unique software platforming approach. This recognition reflects the tremendous dedication of our one global team.”
Winners are selected in each of 10 categories including service-delivery areas such as IT services, customer care and business process outsourcing. Winners are also selected in regions such as Eastern Europe, Asia, and Latin America.
“The Global Services 100 list, brought out by Global Services and neoIT, has grown to be a highly credible listing of global IT services and BPO companies. The list helps service buyers leapfrog the request-for-information stage and the category winners almost always make it to the RFP stage in a service deal. That’s the unique advantage a Global Services 100 company enjoys,” says Ed Nair, Editor, Global Services.
