Rural Sourcing Named to Gartner Cool Vendors

ATLANTA, April 30, 2013 – Rural Sourcing, the leader in domestic sourcing, a cost-effective alternative to the traditional model for IT outsourcing, has been named to the list of “Cool Vendors” for 2013 in Application Services by Gartner Inc, the world’s leading information technology research and advisory company. Rural Sourcing Inc. is one of only five companies to be recognized this year.

“It’s an honor and we appreciate Gartner’s recognition for being one of the ‘Cool Vendors’ for application services,” said Monty Hamilton, CEO of Rural Sourcing. “We greatly appreciate our fast growing list of Fortune 1,000 clients who recognize that a disruptive IT outsourcing model based on providing cost effective IT solutions located in here in the US is required in today’s marketplace.”

Gartner’s research for application services features five smaller service providers that offer CIOs, sourcing leaders, and application development managers innovative services and new approaches to solving business problems. Gartner states their findings on Rural Sourcing Inc. as “an early pioneer that focuses on a cost-competitive alternative onshore delivery model that taps into the highly educated, and under-leveraged, IT talent pool in non-metropolitan areas across the U.S.” Gartner also states that: “these providers often have more innovative solutions and approaches, such as a moneyball approach and rural sourcing for high performance at a competitive cost.”
