"Capgemini is especially strong in BPO, ERP, and Infrastructure Management development initiatives, which are not only pleasing customers but are also elevating the company’s respect among competitors."

"Even though we are in the midst of a number of strategic global initiatives, this survey shows that we continue to deliver the highest levels of client service – and not just in 2007, but since the first Black Book survey was published four years ago."
