Rural Sourcing and Clarkston Form Domestic Sourcing Partnership

DURHAM, NC--(Marketwire - June 5, 2007) - Rural Sourcing, Inc. announces a partnership with Clarkston Consulting that will provide highly skilled software developers using their proprietary Domestic Sourcing staffing model to support large-scale IT projects at costs competitive with other sourcing alternatives.

IT executives have the challenge of finding software development expertise at attractive rates without sacrificing the advantages of local resources. Offshore staffing has the promise of low rates but carries the disadvantage of having distant resources, making project management and communication difficult. Domestic Sourcing offers the advantage of proximity, flexibility, highly skilled project management and communication, along with attractive rates.

Rural Sourcing establishes development centers in close proximity to major regional universities which have world class Information Systems programs, thus capitalizing on the intellectual capital and skilled software developers graduating from these institutions. By partnering with Rural Souring, Inc., Clarkston has access to a new pool of skilled developers enabling an overall lower cost for their clients. "The lower cost of personnel, combined with local economic development programs, enable us to offer skilled personnel at rates better than the sourcing alternatives offered by IT consulting firms in major metropolitan areas," said Kathy Brittain White, Founder and President of Rural Sourcing, Inc.
