Americus-- Atlanta based STI Knowledge broke ground on a new call center in Americus. The company plans to hire 200 people, but the impact could be much greater.

"But I know its substantial,"said Chamber President David Garriga. "I also know for every job a new service job will be created, so the employment effect is substantial."

STI Knowledge picked Americus for the call center in large part because Sumter County installed a Cisco-switch, paid for with money from a One Georgia Grant. That switch increased the county's technology capablity.

Now several other companies are looking to locate there.
