Virtusa Named To InformationWeek 500 List Of Top Technology Innovators

Stocks in this article: VRTU

Virtusa Corporation (NASDAQ: VRTU), a global IT services company that combines innovation, technology leadership and industry solutions to transform the customer experience, today announced that it has been named to the prestigious 2013 InformationWeek 500 list, a list of the nation’s top technology innovators. Virtusa was honored for its V+ platform, a proprietary internal social business platform the company developed to drive employee collaboration and engagement, particularly between Generation Y workers and other team members. Now in its 25th year, the InformationWeek 500 tracks the technology, strategies, investments and administrative practices of some of the best-known organizations in the country.

“We are extremely honored to be named to this year’s InformationWeek 500 list as one of the nation’s top technology organizations,” said Kris Canekeratne, chairman and CEO at Virtusa. “Our team member engagement mission at Virtusa is to create a high performance environment that promotes innovation and engineering excellence where Virtusans can realize their full potential. V+, our team member engagement platform, is a powerful digital environment that provides Virtusans an opportunity to excel and thereby create competitive advantage for our clients. It is both gratifying and humbling to be recognized as a leading organization in an area that is critically important as corporations navigate the digital frontier.”

V+ is a proprietary internal social business platform designed and developed in-house by Virtusa to transform the way Virtusans work, learn, share and connect. Catered specifically towards Virtusa’s Generation Y team members (which make up 86 percent of Virtusa’s workforce), V+ has improved communication and engagement, business agility, productivity and innovation within the company. The platform creates a next-gen work environment providing a social experience akin to platforms like YouTube, Google, Facebook, LinkedIn and Wikipedia, and uses social practices such as gamification and crowdsourcing to create an engaging platform. V+ brings together systems of records such as ERP, CRM, IPM, and systems of engagement to transform core business processes to social and further enable those applications with mobility. Today, more than 5,900 Virtusans are using V+.
