Where others had failed in the past, Signature Analytics was able to come in and bring order to our financial information within the first month of our relationship. Signature Analytics has been proactive in all areas of our business, including introductions to other key business advisors, assistance with ongoing financing, development of Key Performance Indicators and projections, and analysis of ongoing cash management.
Signature Analytics has been wonderful to work with over the years. They’re always looking for new ways to help us and have become a trusted sounding board for new ideas. We have the type of confidence and trust in the Signature Analytics team to work independently without a lot of oversight. The Signature Analytics team has given us a wealth of knowledge and insight.
They helped a very understaffed, and thin budget organization really step into the 21st century, not just by getting the books in order, but really using the systems to help train staff and to kind of bring them into better management techniques. Signature Analytics put a bunch of processes in place for us. They brought in an HR consultant who works with us on a number of issues, and I couldn’t have done it without her or Signature Analytics. And she’s still with us. So it’s a real team effort as we strengthen the processes and procedures of running this organization that are now firmly in place.
They stopped being a vendor after we put ink to paper on the contract. It really became a partnership from start to finish. They integrated with who we are, but they were all business in getting stuff done and very much were thinking about our future and our well being as an organization. I felt very much like they were a part of my team. Plus my board’s ecstatic about what my finance guy is able to present because he can take Signature’s reporting and run with that. You can’t build your house until you put your foundation down, and what Signature did was put a foundation down that we can build on.
