Finding a provider in India could be very challenging process. Sheer number of providers combined with high percentage of body-shops with prevalent mediocre resources, ongoing changes in the industry, recent scandals, cutthroat competition exacerbated by industry decline make up for a daunting process. The process becomes especially complex if you target a small to midsized vendors. Analysts reports are not likely to offer tremendous help here as they often stay with top tier vendors. Naturally you want to seek help from industry organizations, and when it comes to India you can not ignore NASSCOM with its 1200+ members. Recently one of the NASSCOM initiatives yielded a list which you might want to consider: NASSCOM announces the Top 15 – “Exciting Emerging companies to Work for”- 2008. The list offers 15 companies that came from a list of ~400 companies. Rather exclusive group I would say. To my great surprise I actually knew two of the 15 names:
- Corbus (India) Pvt. Ltd
- AgreeYa Solutions India Pvt. Ltd.
- Nagarro Software Pvt. Ltd.
- R Systems International Ltd.
- Synygy India Pvt. Ltd.
- Acclaris Business Solutions Pvt. Ltd.
- Infogain India (P) Ltd.
- Hytech Professionals India Pvt. Ltd.
- Nucleus Software Exports Ltd.
- Sopra India Pvt. Ltd.
- Cactus Communications Pvt. Ltd.
- Interglobe Technologies Pvt. Ltd.
- H5 Asia Pacific Pvt. Ltd.
- Saba Software India Pvt. Ltd.
While the focus of the survey was to identify the best small and medium sized IT-BPO companies to work for, it serves as a great list of the best small and medium sized IT-BPO companies to deal with as there is typically very strong correlation between those two.
