NEW YORK, March 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
New four year deal with US-based business intelligence services market leader further expands Integreon's strong presence in the Philippines
Integreon, a leading global provider of integrated legal, research and business solutions, recently announced a multi-year extension to its existing landmark deal with SNL Financial (SNL). SNL is a premier provider of business intelligence and news for the banking, financial services, insurance, real estate, energy, metals/mining, and media/communications industries. Integreon has been providing business services to SNL since May 2012, and the recent expansion of the relationship extends the contract through January 2017.
The partnership will grow SNL's existing relationship with Integreon in Manila and will further extend Integreon's position as a market leading provider of business services to demanding professionals. Integreon already employs 400 people in Manila, providing a range of business services, legal services and document services to clients. Integreon's largest investor, LiveIt Investments, is the BPO investment division of Philippine-based Ayala Corporation and has played a significant role in Integreon's success in growing its global business, including its Philippine delivery capabilities.
Under the extended agreement, Integreon will help SNL build a team of approximately 300 or more financial research and business support professionals that will be located in dedicated delivery centers in Manila.
Tom Corbitt, Chief Administrative Officer at SNL Financial, said "Integreon has a good understanding of SNL's client base since they've historically provided business critical services to many of the same customers. They've proven they can leverage their local knowledge and employer brand in the Manila market to quickly deliver the high caliber talent and physical infrastructure SNL needs to support our growing global client base, particularly as we expand into Asian markets."
Robert Gogel, Chief Executive Officer, Integreon, said, "SNL is an impressive company with exciting growth plans. We are delighted that our ability to attract talent for them in Manila has led them to choose us for further expansion plans. We look forward to supporting SNL in their growth and delivery of high quality information services over the coming years."
