SOFIA (Bulgaria), Aug 25, 2015 -- Bulgaria was shortlisted for „Offshoring Destination of the Year“ in the European Outsourcing Association Awards (EOAA) 2015. Now in its sixth year, the EOA Awards recognise and celebrate the efforts of the countires and companies who have demonstrated best-practice in pan-European outsourcing.

Bulgarian Outsourcing Association (BOA) is delighted to announce that this year several Bulgarian companies were shortlisted for awards, among them members of BOA. ScaleFocus will compete for the award in “European Outsourcing Service Provider of the Year" category. TeleTech which acquired Bulgarian company Sofica Group in the beginning of 2014, is also among the finalists for the "European IT Outsourcing Project of the Year" award.

"This year's EOA shortlist for “Offshoring destination of the Year” is another international recognition of Bulgaria, which in recent years has proved to be a favorite place for BPO and ITO. I believe that this trend will continue in the future," said Stefan Bumov, chairman of the Bulgarian Outsourcing Association.

Stamen Yanev, Executive Director of InvestBulgaria Agency, expressed his satisfaction with the Bulgarian nominations for the prestigious awards and said: "The outsourcing industry is among the priorities of the country as an important sector for development and investment. Bulgarian outsourcing industry ads value and supports the development of other related sectors in the country, including construction, real estate management and development, telecommunications, consulting, and business services.”

"The nomination of Bulgarian companies as finalist in this prestigious competition gives a strong signal of the level of services provided in Bulgaria, the quality and professionalism of the Bulgarian outsourcing companies," said Plamen Tsekov, a board member of the BAA and CEO of the nominated company ScaleFocus.
