N-iX, an Eastern European software development vendor with offices in Ukraine and Poland, is selected for Global Outsourcing 100® by International Association of Outsourcing Professionals.
We are pleased to announce that N-iX has won a place in the 2018 Global Outsourcing 100, the world’s lineup of the top outsourcing service providers issued annually by IAOP.
This is the lucky 13th time IAOP has compiled its list designed to demonstrate the most reliable and accomplished outsourcing companies to do business with. N-iX debuted on the list the last year and now it’s the second time the company is included in the Global Outsourcing 100.
Moreover, IAOP mentioned N-iX even earlier, in 2016. Aside from the GO100 list, our company was considered the Rising Star, marked for the intense employee and revenue growth.
IAOP, an influential standard-setting and business-assurance organization, assesses numerous firms from different areas in five fundamental criteria: size & growth, customer references, awards & certifications, programs for innovation, and, the last but not the least, corporate social responsibility.
The candidate’s service packs range from software development and business intelligence to manufacturing and logistics. Selection of the candidates is based on a scrupulous scoring methodology that includes an independent review by a panel of IAOP customer members.
The final result of selection is published in Fortune Magazine and on the IAOP’s official website.
In the 2018 Global Outsourcing 100, there are 18 IT outsourcing companies with development centers in Ukraine. This time we have 5 positions more than the previous year, and 8 positions more than the year before last. These dynamics demonstrates the remarkable progress of the industry within the nation.
“Nowadays, we see that a sustainable community of IT specialists is rising, being oriented on social initiatives and development of the industry and even the nation. Last year, N-iX nominated Ukraine to GSA UK Awards, where we won the Offshoring Destination of the Year. Besides, in January, N-iX, together with other members of the IT Ukraine association, contributed to the organization of the first Ukraine House within the World Economic Forum in Davos. The 2018 Global Outsourcing 100 results, where the share of Ukrainian companies is inevitably growing, are the part of this tendency of the Ukrainian IT community progress, thus Ukraine brand uprise.” – comments Andrew Pavliv, CEO and founder of N-iX, сhairman of the Supervisory Board of the Lviv IT Cluster.
Comparing to 2016, when Ukraine-related companies took just 10 positions in the list, Ukrainian IT made a huge leap to success. In the 2018 GO100, we can detect even more enterprises originally based in Ukraine. For just a few years, companies with Ukrainian roots grew more robust, mature, and strongly business-oriented, so the world recognized us.
“The growth rate of Ukrainian IT industry is about 20% per year,” – adds Andrew Pavliv. – “Some companies grow at a much faster pace – for example, N-iX has grown more than three times over the past three years. It is a pleasure that IT companies grow not only quantitatively, but also qualitatively while actively working on creating a positive image on the global market.
The increase of Ukraine’s presence in the Global Outsourcing 100 list is also due to the fact that more foreign IT companies are opening their development centers here.”
