Signature Science in Austin, Texas, provides scientific services for Homeland Security and provides tools, techniques and expertise to support law enforcement agencies across the country.
This niche industry is cyclical by nature, but Signature Science’s long history of expertise and its multi-disciplinary approach have earned it a reputation that keeps the company busy. Principals sought Insperity after hearing its radio commercials as soon as they began creating Signature Science.
“We were doing everything from raising capital to business operations to business setup, and we wanted experts who could handle most of those functions, so we could get the business up and running,” says Adam Hamilton, president and CEO. Insperity eased the company’s administrative burdens, “allowing us to grow and focus on our clients instead of on our infrastructure,” Hamilton adds. Staffing concerns, finding the right expertise for the job, are crucial, and “the comprehensive benefits from Insperity give us a competitive position in the marketplace when hiring employees.”
“We now have a strategic business advisor for human resources issues and compliance. Insperity is a great option for entrepreneurs and startups, because you don’t want to be encumbered by administrative details at such a critical time,” Hamilton says. Having extra time also allows Signature Science to focus on identifying clients and projects that aren’t as cyclical in nature to level the workload.
The Return on Investment
“The fees we pay to Insperity are well spent. We’ve looked at administering our own benefits, so I know the costs,” Hamilton says, “and I say again that the fees are well worthwhile. Our employees receive best-practices HR, and Insperity protects the company from various liabilities.”
