About The Global Outsourcing 100
The International Association of Outsourcing Professionals® (IAOP®) is in its eighth year of compiling its annual ranking of the world’s best outsourcing service providers and advisors – The Global Outsourcing 100. As part of The Global Outsourcing 100, IAOP also introduced a new list in 2009, The World’s Best Outsourcing Advisors.
The Global Outsourcing 100 and its sub-lists are essential references for companies seeking new and expanded relationships with the best companies in the industry. The lists include companies from around the world that provide the full spectrum of outsourcing services — not just information technology and business process outsourcing, but also facility services, real estate and capital asset management, manufacturing and logistics. They include not only today’s leaders, but tomorrow’s rising stars.
The application process for both The Global Outsourcing 100 and The World’s Best Outsourcing Advisors mirrors the customers’ request for proposal (RFP) process in many ways. The application is composed of three required parts: Company Information, Company Profile and Evaluation Criteria. The first asks for basic contact and company information. The second allows companies to select their top services provided, industries served and regions where they provide services. These answers are used to qualify them for sub lists. The third part includes numerous questions broken into four sections— Size and Growth, Customer Satisfaction, Depth of Competence and Management Capabilities.

As part of the engagement, Integreon will provide Kennedys with a central enquiry desk, legal and business research services and hardcopy library management. Integreon’s Library and Information Service, launched in 2010, allows law firms to leverage Integreon’s shared library resources to efficiently meet their need for high-quality legal research and specialized library services.
Access to specialised and comprehensive information services and libraries is vital for all law firms and legal professionals. Integreon’s rich network of researchers and librarians has deep domain expertise and significant law firm experience. This provides a quality and depth of support that would usually only be available through a large in-house library staff whilst avoiding the operational difficulties and costs associated with maintaining internal library teams. Integreon provides these services to major law firms like CMS Cameron McKenna LLP, Osborne Clarke, Farrer & Co and Thomas Eggar LLP.
As part of Integreon’s service expansion, the team of five library services professionals from Kennedys has been added to Integreon’s shared team.
Guy Stobart, Chief Executive of Kennedys said, “The driver behind our partnership with Integreon was the requirement to have a scalable and first class service to meet the needs of a growing international law firm. We are looking forward to benefiting from wider information and research resources in order to meet the needs of our staff and clients.”
Bob Gogel, CEO, Integreon said, “In a rapidly evolving legal landscape, law firms need bespoke and flexible support in library and information services. As a reliable alternative to traditional in-house library services, Integreon’s specialised knowledge in this area helps meet this need and at the same time frees lawyers and legal professionals from administrative burdens. We are happy to partner with Kennedys, which is a well-respected and innovative firm with deep expertise and a rapidly-growing international network.”
