26, 65 and 6… these aren’t the latest lottery numbers but rather figures that describe the significant growth experienced by Signature Analytics in the past twelve months.
26 New clients. We began providing top-notch outsourced accounting services to an additional 26 small and mid-sized businesses during 2013 in a wide array of industries including, but not limited to, biotech, manufacturing, craft brewing, and even vacation clubs. Our clients have appreciated the flexibility that the Signature Analytics model offers allowing them to receive a variety of services in a cost efficient way. These services include general bookkeeping, monitoring of their current accounting department, cash flow management, financial projections, board presentations, and other accounting support functions.
65 Percent growth in revenue. Our projected percentage of revenue growth for 2013 is 65%. What is more impressive is that this growth follows year ended 2012 growth of 70%. The Signature Analytics team understands that this level of growth can only be accomplished by providing the highest quality service, being responsive to clients, and exceeding all expectations. With quality comes growth and in the past two years Signature Analytics has successfully maintained both with a bright future ahead.
Jason Kruger, President of Signature Analytics, noted, “because we focus first on quality, we have not lost a customer in three years. It always makes it easier to grow when you don’t ever have to take steps backward.” Acknowledging the quality service received at a reasonable cost, most of our clients have increased the number of services received and have spoken highly of Signature Analytics to their peer entrepreneurs. “When clients are happy, they can be our best sales people. We continue to receive more new clients from client and partner referrals than any other source,” says Jason.
