Rural Sourcing Karie Barrett
Bridging the Gap Between Business Needs and Technology Delivery
Rural sourcing, also known as onshoring or domestic sourcing, involves sending work to service providers in rural locations where the cost of living and operating expenses are lower. It is a cost competitive alternative for companies that want to avoid the negative aspects of offshoring to India and China.
QAT Global’s rural sourcing centers leverage best practices for remote service delivery to create large, highly integrated centers of expertise, customized and dedicated to specific client domains. The centers combine expert resources, service delivery best practices, mature infrastructure and flexible engagement models that best fit the needs of your enterprise.
Simply put, we are committed to delivering highly flexible and trusted quality solutions, meeting expectations, and satisfying clients. Our rural sourcing model takes people with the skills and experience you need and places them in rural development centers. This leads to a stable workforce with experience in exactly the IT areas you need. At QAT Global, you get a custom team that meets your needs.
ural outsourcing provides the same basic benefits as other outsourcing arrangements: ready access to technology expertise and resources that the client lacks internally. By locating in domestic rural locations, clients get the value of a local provider combined with the advantage of lower-cost labor outside large metropolitan areas. Cultural compatibility, similar time zones, and relatively close proximity to clients make rural outsourcing an attractive option for clients.
In general, the value proposition of rural outsourcing is that clients pay lower prices for IT services compared to ITO services based on urban areas; and clients receive a better service experience compared to offshore outsourcing. Transaction costs are significantly lower compared to offshore outsourcing. Price-wise, rural outsourcing offers prices that are 20-40 percent less expensive per hour than urban rates in cities such as New York, Los Angeles, or Chicago.
