PIERRE, S.D. (AP) Eagle Creek Software Services is considering expanding its presence in South Dakota with a second center in Pierre by the end of the next year.
That would mean up to 175 new technology jobs in the capital city.
Minnesota-based Eagle Creek already has more than 100 employees in Pierre, providing software services to major corporations. The company also has a center in Valley City, N.D., and is building one in Vermillion, S.D.. Officials expect to make a decision on a second Pierre center early next year.
Company officials say their "Dakota model" keeps costs low by placing high-tech jobs in rural locations in the northern Great Plains.
