Rural Sourcing: The Cost-Effective Alternative to Traditional IT Outsourcing

  1. 1. www.qat.com Presented by : QAT Global Rural Sourcing THE COST-EFFECTIVE ALTERNATIVE TO TRADITIONAL IT OUTSOURCING
  2. 2. What is Rural Sourcing? Rural is a relative term – to some it’s a small town, and to others, it’s a second-tier city like Omaha, Nebraska. Gartner uses the term "LCD onshore sourcing”, the term most often used in the media. Generally, rural sourcing centers are located in low-cost areas compared to urban-based centers. One thing most people agree on – there’s a lifestyle component to it, with more focus on family, outdoors, and community. LCD (low-cost domestic) sourcing is a different type of onshore sourcing in which ESPs in urban or semi-urban areas deliver IT services. www.qat.com
  3. 3. Quality Management Systems and Processes In order to drive highly productive teams that can deliver consistently high SLAs, Rural- based service centers invest heavily in implementing process quality and standards for service delivery. Labor Rates Rural-based service centers don't have to pay high urban wages but still have workers in U.S. time zones with native English language skills, lower attrition rates and the much-touted Midwestern work ethic — some of the same benefits that have led banks, retailers and insurance companies to locate customer service call centers in Nebraska. Personal Service Rural-based service centers are able to provide a higher level of personal service to clients. It is common to find senior executive teams intimately involved even with very small contracts. Infrastructure Rural-based service centers can also leverage existing infrastructure to achieve further economies through a service delivery “factory” framework of common best practice processes (ITIL and CMM), tools, training, operating models, and knowledge management disciplines. Rural sourcing centers are also well-positioned to provide custom application development and testing services. Rural Provider Advantages www.qat.com

Nebraska Ranks 3rd in Best Quality of Life - Business Facilities Magazine Rankings Report, 2011 Why Omaha? Not too big. Not too small. Omaha offers employees a higher quality of life compared to urban lifestyles. For many staff members, moving to Omaha is a lifestyle change, versus a career change. www.qat.com
