MERA, an Eastern Europe's leader in software R&D services for Telecom, has been recognized as one of the world’s top 100 outsourcing service providers for 2009 by the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals™ (IAOP™).
The Global Outsourcing 100™ and its sub lists are essential references for companies seeking new and expanded relationships with the best companies in the industry. The lists include companies from around the world that provide the full spectrum of outsourcing services.
