Auriga was named to Top 10 Service Providers in Eastern Europe of Global Services 100
Auriga announces that it was named to Top 10 Service Providers in Eastern and Central Europe of the 2009 Global Services 100 List, a research by Global Services Media and neoIT. Auriga is included in Global Services 100 for the fourth straight year.
This year, hundreds of IT and BPO service providers from all over the world were invited to take part in the Global Services 100 survey. Outsourcing services vendors from 19 countries, with delivery centers across 31 countries, participated in the study. Company operations effectiveness, service offerings, customers relationship, and employee management areas were evaluated by the panel of Global services and neoIt experts, using a weighted scoring scheme to rate each question. The 2009 Global Services 100 and the 11 category winners were announced at the Global Services Conference 2009 at NYC on February 26th.
“This continual recognition of Auriga’s strength and capabilities demonstrates that a company doesn’t have to be an industry giant to be recognized worldwide, as long as it is wholly devoted to understanding customer needs and reaching the highest levels of service quality, customer satisfaction, and technological expertise.”– says Auriga General Manager Andrei Pronin.
Earlier this year Auriga was also named, for the second straight year, to the Global Outsourcing 100 list of the top the world's best outsourcing service providers across all industries, and to the Top 10 Central/Eastern Europe IT Outsourcing Vendors of the 2008 Black Book of Outsourcing by Brown-Wilson Group.
Auriga in the Black Book of Outsourcing
Auriga was included in the 2008 Black Book of Outsourcing, a survey published by Brown-Wilson Group. High quality of Auriga’s services was recognized in two categories: Auriga was ranked No. 3 in the list of IT Outsourcing Vendors in Central/Eastern Europe and No. 6 in the list of Global Software QA & Testing Vendors.
The Black Book of Outsourcing is based on the annual market research by Brown-Wilson Group, a leading global consulting and information technology services provider. Nearly 300,000 global outsourcing buyers are invited to participate in the survey annually to determine their attitudes toward and satisfaction with outsourcing providers. The performance of outsourcing services providers is evaluated from the perspective of the client experience. The Black Book of Outsourcing serves as an unbiased and independent information source for the buyers of outsourcing services, and is widely accepted as an industry measure of client satisfaction. The Black Book of Outsourcing has been published since 2005, and Auriga is in the list for the second time: in 2006, Auriga was included in the Top Ten Outsourcing Vendors in Central/Eastern Europe.
“We do our best to provide our clients with best value services and contribute to the high quality of the products that our customers deliver to their target market. Being listed in the Black Book of Outsourcing confirms high evaluation of our work by our clients”, – acknowledges Alexis Sukharev, Auriga President and CEO.

Andrei Pronin comments: "I’m glad to be back to Auriga again. After spending some time apart and working at other places, I started realizing even better what brilliant people we have gathered here, what high level of maturity has been reached over almost 20 years of operation, and what huge potential the company has. It was a pleasant surprise to discover that despite the economic downtime, the company remained stable, flexible and agile, truly focused on bringing maximum value; the people are still full of energy and ideas. We are preparing to launch a number of interesting initiatives and partnership programs. So, I’m optimistically looking into the future and expecting a lot of fun from hard work of converting this big potential into a better market position over the next two years.”
