Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 19, 2014
4th Source Inc., a leading provider of near shore IT services, is pleased to announce an expanded relationship with partner and customer, Servant Interactive. 4th Source will be providing content and document conversion services from its near shore centers. These services will focus on the conversion of K-12 publisher's curriculum and text books from original format to the Servant Interactive Cloud based platform. Servant Interactive chose to partner with 4th Source because of its people, process, and tools, a winning combination for quality outsourcing at a reasonable cost. By leveraging 4th Source to expand its development team, Servant Interactive will be able to provide new services to its publishing partners as well as students. The expansion of services has a direct correlation to incremental subscription revenue for Servant Interactive.
Servant Interactive was attracted to 4th Source's DevXtend service, which allows U.S. Companies to set up a second development center in its near shore facilities. 4th Source provides the facility, infrastructure, and management and then collaborates with the customer to build a dedicated team. Team selection is aligned with the customer’s needs versus prescribing a one size fits all model. The value of near shore is cost savings, geographic proximity, U.S. working hours, and NAFTA regulations, making visas and U.S. travel part of the solution.
Joe Aschenbrenner, Senior Vice President of Services Delivery of 4th Source said, "4th Source is proud to partner with Servant Interactive on their cloud based educational initiatives. Our software developers, quality assurance experts, and project managers are extremely excited for the opportunity to be a part of building and delivering the best educational and training content to mobile students, schools, and publishers with Servant Interactive."
Pete Marra, Chief Operations Officer of Servant Interactive said, “The reason we selected 4th Source was because they truly partnered with our organization. They didn’t supply us with resources that just do work. They supplied us with people who critically and creatively thought through our business goals and development needs. 4th Source also offered us complete scalability. They were able to supply our needs with the right people when we needed them. Their partnership has provided us with the flexibility so that we didn’t have to worry about scale and we could focus on growing our business.”
