ALISO VIEJO, CA, Jul 09, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) — UST Global(R), a leading provider of IT services and solutions for Global 1000 and Fortune 500 enterprises, today announced that its fourth domestic sourcing center will go online later this month in the Dallas Metro area, Texas. The company is expanding its global footprint in order to deliver Information Technology and Business Processes services through plural sourcing — a combination of onshore, nearshore and offshore centers. Previously, UST Global established onshore centers in Austin, Texas, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Bentonville, Arkansas.
The objectives of the effort include providing solutions that meet client regulatory and data security requirements while mitigating geopolitical and delivery risk.
“The state of Texas, and the Dallas Metro area in particular, continue to attract Fortune 500 companies at an astounding rate,” said UST Global’s CEO Sajan Pillai. “It has developed into a major hub of technological innovation, and is supported by such local pioneering educational institutions as the Office of Technological Commercialization at the University of Texas at Dallas. The combination of a forward-thinking, dynamic business environment and a community that offers a high quality of life makes this a destination of choice for many enterprises.”
With the help of third party advisors and analyst firms, UST Global is conducting extensive research to determine the best locations in which to situate the domestic sourcing offices. Thirty cities in fifteen states are currently under consideration, with the primary factor being UST Global client needs and future plans. Among additional qualifications that are being explored is the availability of local universities that can provide a pool of fresh graduates for the labor force. UST Global’s Dallas office was chosen after considering five different cities.
