The selection on "TOP 10 Outsourcing Parks in China" (TOP10) is a researching program on Chinese service outsourcing industry raised by Devott Co., Ltd. Adhering to "fairness, impartiality and openness", the program, with its years of exploration and accumulation, has become one of the most important references and benchmarks for global outsourcers when searching Chinese service providers to make investments in China since it was launched in 2008. As the only selection program on outsourcing park in China, it has been successfully held for 6 years and received a wide range of recognition and praise globally.

2. Evaluation Models:
Pyramid Model for Park Competitiveness Evaluation
The essential factor to measure the competitiveness of a service outsourcing park is the capability to facilitate local service outsourcing industry, which originated from inherent endowment, industrial policies and status. The company service and investment attractiveness indicate the improvement of the industry. In another word, the industrial development is the fundamental indicator of the core competitiveness of outsourcing parks.
Outsourcing International Operation Protocol™ (OIOP™) is a consulting service co-launched by TPI and Devott that provides Chinese outsourcing parks with solutions revolving around competitiveness evaluation, best practice, strategy formulation, capability enhancement and implementation and continuous improvement in order to enhance Chinese service outsourcing industry.
3. Evaluation Criteria
Using "Pyramid Model" as core evaluation system and Outsourcing International Operation Protocol (OIOP™) and "Four-Dimension Model" as supporting evaluation systems, TOP 10 combines the characteristics and the practical experiences of industrial development in China to evaluate comprehensive strength of the outsourcing parks in china from the point of view of global outsourcing buyers and vendors. "Pyramid Model", originally created by Devott, consists of six parameters -- endowment, industry, environment, policy, service and investment. The major criteria include economy of the city, foundation of service outsourcing industry, scale of outsourcing industry of the park, number of outsourcing companies, number of outsourcing employees, training capability for outsourcing professionals, operational cost of the park, government support, tax benefits, positioning of the park, investment in marketing of the park, capability to attract investment etc. TOP10, made under strict evaluation procedure, fully reflects the overall strength and competiveness of each park. It is a great reference for outsourcing buyers and companies which intend to invest in parks.
