SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Centrify, the leader in securing hybrid enterprises through the power of identity services, announced today that SPI Research, the leading independent technology services research firm, has named the company a 2017 Best-of-the-Best professional services organization. Centrify was among 416 participating organizations and one of just 21 firms selected for the distinction.

Best-of-the-Best winners excel across five critical service performance dimensions: leadership, client relationships, human capital management, service execution and finance, and operations. The Best-of-the-Best recognition is significant because it measures professional services organizations not only on bottom line financial results, such as profit margins, but also on a breadth of leadership metrics to reveal exceptional performance.

It’s an honor to be recognized as a Best-of-the-Best winner because it reaffirms our dedication to service excellence as we help our customers stop security breaches through the power of identity management,” said Dean Thompson, VP of Global Technical Services and OEM Sales at Centrify. “Our professional services organization is critical to the Centrify experience. We offer a comprehensive set of professional services programs to help our customers speed deployment, optimize internal resources and maximize their investment.”

According to SPI, one of the characteristics that differentiated this year’s winners was an emphasis on building unique, employee-centric cultures. Centrify, along with the other recipients, was recognized for building a collaborative culture in which continuous growth and teamwork is prized.  An open and ethical work environment results in low levels of attrition and high levels of employee and customer satisfaction, according to SPI.

SPI is a global research, consulting and training company dedicated to helping professional service organizations make quantum improvements in productivity and profit. In 2007, SPI developed the PS Maturity Model™ as a strategic planning and management framework which has become the industry-leading performance improvement tool used by over 15,000 service and project-oriented organizations to chart their course to services excellence.
