Guidant Global has been included in the Everest Group Peak Matrix™, which assesses global managed service providers, as a leader and star performer for the first time. The PEAK Matrix has been designed to assist buyers of global Managed Service Provider (MSP) programs and is the, ‘one of the most trusted source for comparative assessments of providers, locations, and products & solutions.’
Everest Group stated in its report, Managed Service Provider (MSP) – Service Provider Landscape with Services PEAK Matrix™ Assessment 2018: The market is undergoing tremendous change owing to buyer requirements for more strategic solutions. In addition to the traditional temporary labor, buyers are increasingly relying on their service providers to manage additional types of labor including services procurement/SOW, independent contractor (IC), and permanent labor.
In order to service these additional requirements of buyers, service providers are continuously investing to expand their capabilities in these new areas. They are gradually increasing their technology leverage in analytics, SOW management, and IC management areas to optimize the contingent workforce programs of their clients. The leaders in the MSP space have developed a unique vision for their clients and themselves to act as a differentiator going forward.
Everest Group classified 20 MSP service providers on the Everest Group PEAK Matrix into the three categories of Leaders, Major Contenders, and Aspirants. Guidant Global was one of 6 providers identified as leaders.
Based on the year-on-year movement of different service providers on the PEAK Matrix, Everest Group also identified three service providers as the “2018 MSP Market Star Performers” – which included Guidant Global.
