WESTBOROUGH, Mass., – (November 18, 2014) – Virtusa Corporation (NASDAQ GS: VRTU), a global IT services company that combines innovation, technology leadership and industry solutions to transform the customer experience today announced that it has been named in the 2014 HfS Research Blueprint Report as a leading provider of global SAP Services, through its offering of innovative and specialized competencies. HfS Research is a leading independent analyst authority and community for the global business and IT services industry. This is the second time this year that Virtusa has been included in an HfS Blueprint Report.

“We are extremely excited and humbled that HfS has recognized our work as a strategic SAP Partner in a variety of industries, including insurance,” said Zlatan Lipovaca, senior vice president, SAP Consulting and Solutions for Virtusa. “SAP is a key strategic driver behind the success of many of our customers and is growing right before our eyes. Customers expect innovative, individualized and customer centric SAP implementations designed to help enhance the business while bringing operational transformation and improving the overall user experience. We are thrilled that our service offerings have been recognized as doing such.”

Virtusa was honored for being a highly experienced, highly specialized service provider with a strategic focus on bringing together SAP with other core Virtusa capabilities to deliver next generation platforms. Virtusa also maintains a focus on providing clients with the tools necessary to succeed in the millennial era and was honored for being a leading innovator amongst millennial organizations.

“Virtusa stood out among the SAP service providers we analyzed this year because of their full scale, soup to nuts approach to implementation, maintenance and support capabilities,” said Dr. Thomas Mendel, SVP IT Services Research at HfS. “We look forward to seeing more from Virtusa over the coming year and expect their trajectory to continue to rise.”

Virtusa provides a host of SAP related services, ranging from implementations and global roll-outs to system upgrades and maintenance and support. This innovation is realized through Virtusa’s engineering heritage and seen in many of the technology products implemented by clients and strategic sourcing services. The company’s SAP services offerings center around an accelerated-delivery methodology by leveraging Virtusa’s customer centric Business Consulting Approach. Recently, Virtusa’s SAP services have helped a leading auto-owners benefits company implement a fully integrated system to perform customer notifications, accept and disburse various forms of payments and assign and track customers to collection agencies.

The HfS Blueprint Report is the first of its kind in the global services industry. Unlike other quadrants and matrices, the HfS Blueprint identifies relevant differentials between service providers across a number of facets under two main categories: innovation and execution. HfS Blueprint Report ratings are dependent on a broad range of stakeholders with specific weightings based on 1,355 crowd sourced responses. Earlier this year, Virtusa was named a High Performer in the HfS Research Blueprint Report: Enterprise Mobility Services.
