10 June 2008, London. The Shared Services & Outsourcing Network (SSON) community has relaunched its website bringing with it new content, opportunities to exchange ideas and online learning tools – everything the global shared services and outsourcing community needs.

Drawing information from a global steering committee including experts from TPI, IBM and Equaterra, SSON ensures you are up-to-date with all the latest industry trends, business developments and the changing landscape that is shared services and outsourcing. Using close ties with industry research and event production firm IQPC, the SSON offers its members an unrivalled level of information from the shared service and outsourcing world.

The new SSON community website (, membership offerings and communication options have been developed after close consultation with existing SSON members and industry experts.

SSON’s Global Strategy & Planning Director Sarah Clayton said: “Our members (and the shared services industry at large) have been looking for a holistic, more pragmatic source of information, news and hands-on content which they can use in their day-to-day working lives as well as take to the boardroom.”

SSON is an idea generator, an approach validator, giving shared services and outsourcing professionals a starting point and challenging all industry players to continue to raise the bar. SSON has over 7,000 members worldwide, across multiple industries, who now have the opportunity to connect and communicate regardless of geographical boundaries. The new SSON website allows users to use:

- Exclusive Q&A forums - leveraging the combined knowledge and experience of our global network and benefiting from its collective wisdom

- Frequently updated blogs – encouraging continual discussions between our members and dedicated bloggers

- A library of topical and functional news and articles plus the latest interviews, presentations, podcasts and webinars from our global network of shared services practitioners and providers.

- SSON’s monthly e-newsletter and specialist e-alerts - keeping you informed of the latest articles, interviews, industry news, Q&A, events, videos and business opportunities

- Shared Services News magazine - containing best practice case studies, strategies, lessons learned, member profiles, interviews, legislative reviews and much, much more

Clayton explains “The relaunch marks the first stage in a series of ongoing developments aimed at providing SSON members and the shared services and outsourcing community at large the information they require to reach the top of their industries and stay there in what is now a very competitive global landscape.”

Clayton has also advised “Already in the works are some very exciting features and functionality enhancements, adding to the overall user experience and pertinence of the SSON website – our goal is to be the number one resource for shared services and outsourcing professionals and we intend to maintain that position,”
