We are the most awarded outsourcer in the industry, and are proud to have been awarded Frost & Sullivan's Contact Centre Outsourcing Service Provider of the Year for the last six years running.

Here are some highlights of our awards for innovation, best practice and customer experience.

2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017

Benchmarked against leading companies in each category, the recipients of these awards represent the best-of-breed in the country.

“Led by a forward-thinking team, Stellar has consistently enhanced its service offerings to better serve its clients. Its ability to deliver end-to-end customer experience management and back-office process is trusted by customers and well regarded in the industry. In recent years, the provider has focused on leveraging emerging technologies, digital solutions, and consulting capabilities to deliver successful business outcome for its clients.

While Stellar’s broad mix of onshore capabilities in the Australian market bodes well for the government sector, its right-shoring approach and recent investments to strengthen offshore delivery capabilities positions it as the partner of choice for other verticals. A strong annual revenue growth rate of over 12% is a testimony to its growth strategy and execution ability.”
