MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Dec. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- That is the question Staffing Industry Analysts asked from May to August 2011, and was answered by more than 2,000 buyers of temporary staffing as well as staffing companies who work with Vendor Managed Services (VMS) companies and Managed Service Providers (MSP).

Companies that scored in the top 25th percentile were considered "top ranked."
Categories analyzed for the report include:
Top Performers — VMS Buyer
Top Performers — VMS Staffing Provider
Top Performers — MSP Buyer
Top Performers — MSP Staffing Provider

In order to be considered for the Top Performer Overall list, vendors had to score in the top quartile for both staffing providers and buyers. Only two vendor management systems qualified for the Top Performer honors and one Managed service provider rated in this year's survey scored high enough with both key audiences to qualify."
The report, released this week, announced The Top Performers Overall in each group as:
