PRESS RELEASE: Firstsource Solutions, the customer experience expert, has been placed for the first time in the Challengers category in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Customer Management Contact Center BPO, Worldwide. This recognition comes as Firstsource posted strong results in the quarter ending December 2016, with YOY growth of 8.2% compared the same period the previous year.
It also follows the signing of a new ten-year partnership with Sky in the UK, which saw Firstsource take on 1,200 new people to continue provide customer experience solutions for Sky’s TV and Broadband services. This was Firstsource’s largest ever deal, and the biggest Telecoms and Media/BPO deal in the UK in the past two years.
Rajesh Subramaniam, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Firstsource Solutions, said: ‘‘We are honoured to be positioned as a Challenger in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant. We believe this recognition reflects our continued investment in people and technology to deliver business results through great customer experience. We also feel it is a testament to the strength of our relationship with some of the world’s leading brands, with whom we work collaboratively to deliver transformative end to end customer experience.’’
