| News alert
Paris, 25 August 2011, Capgemini, one of the world’s foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, today announced that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc in the leaders' quadrant for Helpdesk Outsourcing, Europe, in the latest "Magic Quadrant for Helpdesk Outsourcing, Europe".

Capgemini has been positioned based on “ability to execute” and “completeness of vision.” Gartner defines its leaders quadrant as “Leaders are performing skillfully. They have a clear vision of the market’s direction and are developing competencies to maintain their leadership position. They shape the market, rather than follow it.”

Gavin Westwood, Global Head of Desktop and Distributed Services and Service Management, said: “We are delighted with Gartner’s recognition of our outsourcing strategy and specifically our focus on service desk services. We are continuing to reinforce our worldwide delivery presence with investment in new centers and leveraging emerging markets, such as in Asia Pacific and South America. Our aim is to support clients while reducing cost and optimizing service delivery. We use our global capabilities to drive integrated solutions, covering a broad set of services (from application, to business process and infrastructure) through a unified service. Our customer-centered service desks, underpinned by self-service strategy, are designed to increase the use of self-help and reduce cost per contact while improving end-user efficiency.”
