- [By ]
In the human-resources business for more than 30 years, Insperity (NYSE: NSP) is profitable and growing. It has benefitted from seeing the need for outsourcing the human resources function early and executing consistently. Employing a software-with-a-service (SwaS) model, Insperity acts almost as a consultant: SwaS companies don’t just “rent” software (like software-as-a-service companies do) but rather rent software together with embedded support service. SwaS companies can observe their clients and see when and where they’re having issues — and then proactively helping them solve these issues. Further, Insperity offers data analytics and it also plans to continue marketing predictive data analytics to its clients.
