TPI Parent Company Acquires Compass

A few minutes ago, Information Services Group (ISG), the parent company of TPI, announced its acquisition of Compass, the premier independent global provider of business and IT benchmarking, performance improvement, data and analytics services.

When ISG acquired TPI in 2007, it was the first step in its journey to create an industry-leading, high-growth, information-based services company. The acquisition of Compass is the next step. Together, TPI and Compass have more than five decades of global leadership in information and advisory services, more than 600 employees in 21 countries on six continents, and a proven track record of more than $135 billion in achieved or identified client savings. As a result of combining TPI and Compass, ISG now has the world’s foremost database of operational metrics – real data from real clients.  And we bring to market a unique array of end-to-end services built on a shared heritage of unparalleled data-driven insight and unmatched service delivery expertise.

In the short term, Compass and TPI will continue to operate in the markets much as we do today. Our commitment to client service is a value we share and we will each remain focused on delivering on that commitment.  To ensure that we will take advantage of future opportunities, we have established a joint team to plan and implement integrated offerings. This team has already begun working together on specific go-to-market initiatives in order to create powerful, new offerings that leverage a broader set of resources with which to help clients and service providers achieve the sustained operational excellence required to meet today’s economic challenges and capitalize on the opportunities provided by Cloud Computing and other emerging technologies.

On behalf of TPI, I want to welcome Compass to ISG. We look forward to a future of serving clients and the sourcing industry together.
