Acquisition Taps IT Workers in Rural America

August 14 2012

American CyberSystems Inc. acquired CrossUSA, a Burnsville, Minn.-based information technology solutions firm that accesses IT workers in rural areas of the U.S. for global project work, allowing large firms to outsource IT work to rural America (near shore) instead of going abroad.

CrossUSA presently operates three “rural development centers” in small communities in the U.S. And there are plans to open more such centers with the acquisition by ACS.

 “CrossUSA offers clients superior service at reduced cost while addressing many of the ‘quality of life’ issues that the American workforce is searching for today,” said CrossUSA President Kevin McIoughan. Those quality of life issues include low crime, minimal traffic and low cost of living often found in smaller communities.

The deal calls for CrossUSA name to remain. Terms of the transaction were not announced.

ACS ranks on Staffing Industry Analysts’ 2012 list of largest U.S. staffing firms.
