“Lexmark has created something unique — not an average shared services center (SSC), but a Competence Center that is on the cutting edge of the SSC industry,” said Balázs Somogyi, EMEA quality and environmental manager. “Many companies with SSCs do not have the variety and complexity of the jobs we have in-house.

To meet the award evaluation criteria, a cross-functional team from the Lexmark Budapest Competence Center submitted six projects completed in the last three years that have improved the center’s performance and demonstrated innovation.
