IAOP Leverages Enlighta to offer Cloud-Based Outsourcing Health Check across IAOP Global Corporate Customer and Service Provider Membership

IAOP & GSOS Leverage Enlighta to offer Cloud-Based Outsourcing Health Check across Global Membership

POUGHKEEPSIE, NY The International Association of Outsourcing Professionals® (IAOP®) announced a partnership with Global Sourcing Optimization Services (GSOS) and Enlighta, Inc. to expand the functionality, global reach and general market availability of the cloud-based outsourcing Value Health Check SurveyTM (VHCS).

Under the new partnership, Enlighta will provide the underlying cloud-based software platform for VHCS as well as user reporting, including improved analytics, on-demand customizations and highly anticipated peer-group scoring capabilities.

Launched a year ago, the outsourcing Value Health Check Survey is quickly enabling IAOP Customer and Service Provider members to understand if there are opportunities to improve the overall health and business value from their outsourcing relationships, according to Matt Shocklee, the author of VHCS and CEO of GSOS.

With over 30 of the outsourcing industry’s leading organizations using VHCS, IAOP, its members and now the outsourcing industry at-large are ready to harvest the insights, best practices and key learnings from the enormous amount of data captured through use of this innovative new tool, Shocklee said. As we looked to the future, we needed a robust and fully integrated platform to expand functionality, effectively and affordably manipulate enormous amounts of data, and do so in an environment requiring extremely high data/information integrity and security across the Internet.

Said IAOP Chairman Michael Corbett: There’s enormous opportunity for organizations that have invested in any type of outsourcing and/or shared service centers operations to improve the value gained from their existing relationships. As the VHCS gains acceptance and IAOP members share their needs, it became clear that we needed a more robust integrated platform and Enlighta was able to respond with a highly creative and affordable solution.

As the interest in the VHCS expands and the amount of data/information captured dramatically increases, participating organizations are asking for increased analytical capabilities, customization options and expanded reporting functionality, said Nipun Sehgal, CEO of Enlighta. We have worked very closely with GSOS, IAOP and its members to offer VHCS as a globally accessible on-demand relationship health assessment service based on Enlighta’s acclaimed cloud-based outsourcing governance suite.

The VHCS is now available to IAOP members and non-members worldwide. IAOP Corporate Customer and Service Provider members receive two complimentary VHCS as part of their annual corporate membership with IAOP.
