NGA receives “Strong Positive”, highest rating possible, from Leading Analyst Firm in HR BPO MarketScope report

Strong positive rating is third major recognition of NGA’s position as a global leader in comprehensive HR BPO by a leading industry analyst

29 Sep 2011
September 29, 2011 (Hemel Hempstead, UK) – NorthgateArinso (NGA), the leading global provider of HR systems and services, has received the highest-possible “strong positive” rating by Gartner, one of the world’s most reputable technology analysis and research organizations.

The Gartner MarketScope* report is the third major industry analyst to identify NGA as a market leader this year in global HR services. The Gartner report reinforces NGA’s market leadership position, which was also acknowledged earlier this year by Everest, a leading BPO consultation and research firm, and IDC, a leading global ICT market intelligence and analysis firm.

The Gartner MarketScope report evaluated the eleven main players in the comprehensive BPO services market on detailed criteria that showcases the relative positioning of the companies as well as “strengths and cautions” for each of the vendors. Vendors are given a rating – the highest being “strong positive” which correlates to a recommendation for customers to continue with planned investments, and for potential customers to consider this vendor as a strong choice for strategic investments.

“We are incredibly proud to be recognised by Gartner as one of the top players in the industry. The growth of NGA has coincided with ongoing investment in our products and our people allowing us to be the best HR partner for all of our clients. We are pleased and believe this report acknowledges and affirms the great developments we’ve made as a company,” said Mike Ettling, CEO at NGA.
