In the high profile zone of the top 25 firms, the most prominent gainer in this month’s Services Index is BT Global Services. BT has recently announced providing the ten-thousandth service connection for Thomson Reuters which reflects the scale and quality of its service delivery.

BT will be outsourcing some of its managed IT services. This reflects a new approach for BT where it is focusing on core operations for key clients and away from routine IT services. ACS, which has been listed in the top 20 companies for the training outsourcing industry by, has also moved up 4 positions. The firm has announced a new facility in Jamaica to showcase its growing global capabilities and announced a number of high profile outsourcing contracts in the US.
