Clarus and Rural Sourcing Inc. Team to Create New Technology Jobs in Rural America
ATLANTA, April 6, 2009 – Clarus Information, a niche business intelligence solution for the Life Sciences Industry, chose to partner with Rural Sourcing to develop its next generation product for pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. “In addition to Rural Sourcing, we evaluate offshore solutions and onsite professional consulting firms. We create a value index to evaluate these companies based on three criteria; knowledge of our client’s business needs, ability to collaborate with our product development team, and total cost to engage. Based on these criteria, Rural Sourcing scored the highest on the value index and was any easy choice for us.”, said Michael Brookman, CEO of Clarus Information.
“We are very excited with the opportunity to work with the Clarus team to help them deliver a unique and valuable solution for the Life Sciences industry. We remain committed to growing our U.S. based work force by offering a cost competitive alternative to the offshore model. The diligence of the Clarus team to look at all their options and to select Rural Sourcing further reinforces our ideals of delivering great service, at a competitive price, right here in America”, says Monty P. Hamilton, CEO of Rural Sourcing.
