EDISON, N.J., July 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Intelligroup, a global ERP & Extended ERP Services company, specializing in ERP implementations, upgrades, and business process improvement, as well as testing, e-Business solutions, and application management and support services, today announced that it has been named on The Black Book of Outsourcing's prestigious 2008 "50 Best Managed Global Outsourcing Vendors" list, as previously announced in The Wall Street Journal.

Intelligroup ranked at #22 on the list, ahead of several industry heavyweights. Intelligroup placed in the highest ten percent of all firms judged in each survey area: C-Level Commitment, Human Capital Performance, Corporate Direction, and Leadership Impact. Rankings are based strictly on responses from client surveys.

For eight weeks each spring, Brown-Wilson Group -- which authors The Black Book of Outsourcing (Wiley Publishers) -- surveys outsourcing users and C-Level officers to gain a buy-side decision-maker perspective on the global services industry. After a stringent external auditing process, the client experience responses of nearly 24,000 buyer executives determined the 2008 Black Book of Outsourcing rankings.

Developed in 2004, its annual study is recognized as the single measure as the only independent industry standard for customer satisfaction in the global services industry. Over half of the responses are gathered from CXO-Level and governance respondents.

These top performance suppliers emerge through ranking the fifty highest among 4,207 global suppliers of various service lines and locations, based on the collective client experience of 24,910 user respondents in 2008. 1,690 suppliers from 45 countries, who received at least ten verifiable client ballots, were qualified for the 2008 Black Book 50. Vendors cannot influence or opt out of the balloting process.

According to Scott Wilson, Partner, Brown-Wilson Group and co-author of The Black Book of Outsourcing, "Intelligroup, ranked among the top suppliers due to its continuous focus on customer satisfaction in ERP and Extended ERP services, and successfully engage and manage outsourcing relationships as recognized by their actual clients."

"Intelligroup is especially pleased to be recognized by The Black Book of Outsourcing given the emphasis placed on positive client feedback," said Pankit Desai, Senior Vice President of Sales for Intelligroup. "Providing the highest level of services and continued value to our customers is of paramount importance to Intelligroup. It is gratifying to receive this acknowledgement from our customer community."
