Wipro, Airtel win 'Oscars of Outsourcing'

May 29, 2007 17:51 IST

India's prowess in the BPO space continues to win accolades at the global arena with three Indian companies - Wipro, Bharti Airtel and Bank of India -- bagging The Outsourcing Excellence Awards, dubbed as 'Oscars of Outsourcing'.

The awards, presented by the online community Outsourcing Centre, are given for the world's best outsourcing arrangements.

Wipro-Nortel Networks, Bank of India-Hewlett Packard and Bharti Airtel-Nortel Networks combine are among the nine winners for this year, US-based consultancy firm Everest Group said in a statement.

The Everest Group and US-based business magazine Forbes are sponsors of the awards, which would be presented in New York in August.

While Wipro-Nortel have been awarded the 'Best Offshore' award for their 15-year old partnership, BoI-HP won the 'Best IT Infrastructure' award for implementing a core banking solution a year ahead of the schedule and Bharti-Nortel combine have been recognised for as the 'Best First Steps' award for best practices in outsourcing, the statement said.

"In addition to the fact that three of the nine winners in 2007 were Indian companies, a large number of the US-based service providers this year are delivering services from offshore locations...three-fourths of the nominated offshore services were provisioned from India," Everest Group country-head (India) Gaurav Gupta said.
