Auriga, a software R&D company with over 18 years of history, is included in Top 10 outsourcers in the Software Vertical ranking of service providers in India, China, Russia, Ukraine & CEE, unveiled in September 2009 by Zinnov Management Consulting, a leading management consulting firm.

According to a first-of-its-kind study on ‘Global R&D Service Providers’ across geographies like India, China and Eastern Europe by Zinnov Management Consulting, Auriga is included in overall Top 20 of software R&D service providers and in Top 10 among the companies serving Software industry.

This study focuses on analyzing the outsourced product development (OPD) market and provides "Global R&D Service Providers’ Rating" to answer some vital questions of companies looking for the best-in-class partners for innovation & developing new products, overall and in particular verticals.

The rating is based on assessing the capabilities of software R&D outsourcing companies in providing end-to-end software product engineering services for various industry verticals, from aerospace & defense to software, and their ability to meet the R&D needs of global companies. The initial list of 100 industry leaders selected based on their visibility, recognition and references has been narrowed down by Zinnov to 20 best-in-class companies by a multi-stage process using such criteria as vertical and geographical presence, focus on software R&D, client references, people strength, innovation, expertise, leadership team, financial strength, etc.

This study was undertaken to help global business leaders identify the right R&D services partners who could help them build innovative products, accelerate product development lifecycle, access growth markets and improve customer experience. I would like to congratulate Auriga, in making it to the top 10 ranking in the software vertical".

Auriga is the only company from Russia that managed to compete with much larger industry giants from India, China, and other countries, and made it to the global list of 20 best-in-class software R&D providers, This result has been achieved due to a number of factors. As a pioneer of the industry – Auriga was the first in Russia to start providing offshore/nearshore software development services to US/EU companies back in 1990 – the company has accumulated valuable experience in serving the specific needs of the customers and has long ago realized the importance of augmenting the in-depth and wide technical expertise with flexibility, reliability and cultural comfort. These qualities became a distinctive feature of the company and result in the highest level of customer satisfaction.

To stay in line with the changing needs of the customers and prove the status of elite software R&D provider and Outsourcing 2.0 company, Auriga constantly revisits its business strategy and the offered set of services, solutions, and models. Accordingly, among the recent additions to the services menu is the advanced TRIM (Total Risk Identification and Mitigation) engagement model, based on sharing the benefits resulting from the anticipated but prevented or mitigated risks between the customer and the provider.

"We are proud to represent Russia among the best 20 software R&D companies. Outsourced product development has always been and continues to be among our top priorities, and this recognition means that we didn't spend 18 years in vain polishing our skills.", says Auriga General Manager Andrei Pronin. "After participating in Zinnov research, we have further enhanced our value proposition, and now offer a mixed Russian-Chinese team, adding extra scalability and extra cost-efficiency to our traditional strengths. We are looking forward to contribute to the inception of new innovative products and to help bringing new life into existing ones."
