News Release: Sourcingline Awards Lone Star Internet Top Awards


The newly published research on web designers - dubbed the Leaders Matrix - highlights fifteen leading web design firms and maps their areas of focus and ability to deliver. It provides a fact-based guide to help buyers short-list firms at the start of the procurement process.

Washington, DC, March 22, 2012 - SourcingLine today published a new framework - dubbed the Leaders Matrix - for identifying top services firms through a structured, fact-based approach. This first application of the Leaders Matrix focuses on identifying top web design companies.

The methodology integrates dozens of quantitative and qualitative data elements such as client references, company profiles, portfolios of projects, employees, focus areas, and website authority. These data elements are combined into two dimensions of Focus and Ability to Deliver that provide a framework for selecting and visually mapping top firms.

Several hundred companies were considered in the research but only fifteen made it into the Web Design Leaders Matrix. The firms include the following: 3plains, CI Web Design, Six Figure Design, The Design People, ImagineDesign, Realm Web Design, South Florida Web Design Studio, Fairhead Creative, Gediweb Solutions, Epic Web Solutions, Ogdenian Web Design, Think Tank Designs, Lenertech Solutions, Coalesce, and Lone Star Internet.

"Prior to the Leaders Matrix, buyers of web design services had to rely on qualitative measures of focus, including vague, often unverified customer feedback. Now they have clear, transparent measures to aid their development of a procurement short-list," said Sam Pettee, Senior Analyst at SourcingLine. "From the web designer's perspective, it's a great credential to be part of the Leaders Matrix and I congratulate all fifteen firms."

The Leaders Matrix is a dynamic analysis and qualified companies are encouraged to apply and submit references. An update is planned for the second quarter of 2012. About SourcingLine
