Product or Service: Contracted Back Office Support
As a small business owner, Josh Spurlock couldn't help but feel at times like he was drowning in the details. As his business, The Relationship Center, grew, he was spending more time handling the miscellaneous, and less in service development and delivery.

“I wasn’t finding a solid solution to my growing pains, and knew that if I didn’t do something, I would burn out or at least cease to grow,” Spurlock says. “Springfield BackOffice (SBO) was born out of that pain. Necessity is the mother of invention.”

SBO supplies contracted “back office” support, with receptionists, accounting, creative services, technology, and strategic planning, to help businesses grow. All services are completely personalized and come at a price a small business or ministry can afford.

“We sit down with each business owner and talk about their specific problem areas,” Spurlock says. “We want to relieve them of the detail work so they can focus on the parts of business they love. We want their business to succeed, and we’ll do whatever we can to make their lives easier in the process.”

With SBO, business owners and ministry leaders can delegate to an entire staff of talented personnel. And that staff is available on an as-needed basis. SBO offers their services a la carte, meaning businesses aren't strapped with a contracted amount of service that they may or may not need.

“We hate to waste money.” Spurlock says. “Our model allows business owners to have their own team of talented professionals at a price point they can afford. They only have to pay for the exact amount of time they use.”

SBO clients also have the option of SBO membership, which Spurlock says provides full access to SBO resources, at a savings of up to 55%. However, membership isn’t open to everyone. “We believe in doing business with excellence. When we accept a member, we are behind them 100%. If the goals of a business or the way they do business violates our ethics, they can’t be members. We want people to be able to infer something good about a business or not-for-profit on the basis of their SBO membership.”

Spurlock and the team at SBO focus on making business fun and easy for business owners and ministry leaders, so they can focus on the fun part of their businesses again. “Strong communities are built by strong small businesses and ministry leaders. We want this to be a win-win situation, where we improve their lives so they can improve our community.”

Bottom line, SBO helps business owners grow without having to take on the burdens of fixed expenses in their back office, and helps them compete, by making them talent rich at a price they can afford.[[In-content Ad]]
