Rural Sourcing Announces Expansion of Development Center
Jonesboro, AR — June 23, 2010 – Rural Sourcing, the leader in domestic IT sourcing, a cost-effective alternative to the offshore model for technology development and the ongoing support and maintenance for critical business applications, announced today its expansion to a new office location in downtown Jonesboro. The new office location at 208 Main Street, will double the previous office size with the option for further expansions.
With the tremendous growth in demand from both Fortune 500 companies and small to mid-size businesses, the company is hiring additional development staff to address the need for good alternatives to the offshore model. “Our 300% annual growth rate is indicative of the market’s appetite for a low-cost, high-quality on-shore alternative to the traditional offshore India operations” says Monty Hamilton, CEO of Rural Sourcing. “We are extremely excited about this expansion into our new Jonesboro development center. Rural Sourcing is fortunate and appreciative of our relationship with the city of Jonesboro and the state of Arkansas. As we look forward, our sights are set on continuing to put Americans back to work here in Arkansas and bringing our successful model to many more states over the coming years.”
The Jonesboro location will house its current staff with plans to grow to 100 employees in the near future. In addition to the new location and expansion of the staff, RSI has begun a nationwide search across several states for their next location, which they expect to be up and running by November 2010.
