Greenwood Village, Colorado, and Mumbai, India – September 02, 2021– Startek® (NYSE: SRT), a global provider of customer experience management solutions, has been recognized by IAOP®, the International Association of Global Outsourcing Professionals, for Excellence in Strategic Partnerships. This recognition is being presented to Startek for its successful deployment of digitally enabled customer engagement strategies for a leading automotive company, which resulted in a lower cost to serve, increased savings, and an improved customer journey. 

The 2021 Excellence in Strategic Partnerships list recognizes organizations that demonstrate excellence in collaboration, innovation, and outcomes, focusing on the impact of the innovation involved and its resulting value. This recognition by IAOP is a validation of the continuous effort made by Startek to adopt disruptive technologies and advanced digital CX strategies, which together bring speed, ease, and significant process optimization for its clients.
