(OTCBB: CRRS), a diversified staffing, recruiting, and consulting services firm providing managed services and trained employees in the areas of Insurance, Information Technology, Accounting, Legal, Engineering, Science, Healthcare, Life Sciences, Creative Services, Hospitality, Retail, General Business and Light Industrial work, has closed on its previously-announced acquisition of Summit Software, a division of Tri-Tel Communications, Inc.

“Summit Software is an exciting acquisition for CRS and we are diversifying our portfolio of service offerings to the marketplace,” said John Messina, the Company’s President and CEO. “Summit is one of the premier software companies focused on the PEO industry and they provide hosting services for many companies who are transitioning to a cloud computing environment. Summit has fantastic profit margins and their technology services more than 270 PEOs and staffing clients. In addition, Summit will allow us to begin to develop new revenue streams focused on strategic partnerships with a concise affinity marketing program that will add greater profits to CRS.”

“Summit’s gross margins in excess of 60% and operating margins above 30% will improve our overall profitability,” said Mike Golde, Corporate Resource Services’ CFO. “More importantly, the ability to derive additional revenue streams from our lower-margin businesses will allow us to compete more effectively on price for the benefit of our clients, yet generate the profitability our investors are expecting. We expect the acquisition to be accretive to earnings in 2013.”
