IAOP recognizes Pythian as one of the world’s best outsourcing service providers with distinguishing honors for outstanding commitment to customer service

OTTAWA, ON June 20, 2017—Pythian, a global technology services company that helps businesses adopt disruptive technologies to better compete, has taken a big leap forward on the Global Outsourcing 100®, moving up to the Leader category from the Rising Star category in 2016. Pythian also received distinguished honors for the number of written customer testimonials received.

The 2017 Global Outsourcing 100 recognizes the world’s best outsourcing service providers. Judging is based on a rigorous scoring methodology that includes a review by an independent panel of International Association of Outsourcing Professionals (IAOP) members with extensive experience in selecting outsourcing service providers and advisors for their organizations.

“We’re honored to receive this recognition from the IAOP,” said Pythian’s CEO, Paul Vallée. “Whether we’re helping our clients move to Cloud, architecting complex data systems, or helping clients become data enabled with our new Analytics as a Service offering Kick AaaS, our priority is to ensure that our customers are optimizing technology to maximize their business outcomes.”

“We bring the world’s best technology and technology-enabled talent to businesses who need them, regardless of location. If a project grows in scope, we can quickly add team members by drawing on the wide range of technical expertise from our global team, and we can accelerate our ability to deliver results with our own automation technology and embedded knowledge bases,” Vallée added.

“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 are proud to recognize Pythian for being among the highest rated global outsourcing companies and for their commitment to delivering innovative solutions that enable the strategic use of data and ensure reliable, scalable IT systems,” Hamill added.
