Harte-Hanks Trillium Software Selects Rural Sourcing for Software Development and Support

ATLANTA, November 16, 2009 – Rural Sourcing today announced that it has signed an agreement to work with Trillium Software, a business of Harte-Hanks, Inc. (NYSE:HHS) and a leading enabler of Total Data Quality solutions, to support Trillium Software’s accelerated pace of development for its data quality software solutions.

After reviewing several alternatives for its technology support needs, including offshore and near shore firms, Trillium Software chose Rural Sourcing. Given Trillium Software’s need for real-time collaboration, quicker product turnarounds, and overall cost competitiveness, Rural Sourcing proved to be the best possible solution. “We are excited about how Rural Sourcing’s new cost-competitive, on-shore product development approach is working for us and our data quality product development teams,” said John Nicoli, managing director at Trillium Software. “There are quite a number of business advantages to utilizing an on-shore team and we are happy with the response time, product turnarounds and support we’ve received from Rural Sourcing.”

“We are privileged to work with such an innovative leader in the software industry who is willing to look holistically at the value proposition of domestic sourcing. Through this relationship we are able to create new high-tech jobs that would have otherwise been outsourced to other countries, while at the same time providing Trillium Software with a solution to providing the best possible support for their customers,” explained Monty P. Hamilton, CEO of Rural Sourcing.
