TAMPA, Fla., May 19, 2005 – SCI, a national leading Professional Employer Organization (PEO), announces the opening of a new office in New Delhi, India, and the expansion of its Atlanta operation center. The expansion comes as the company scales to meet increasing demand for outsourced human resources (HR) services. With its new offices in India and Atlanta, SCI can more effectively and efficiently deliver HR outsourced services – providing virtually 24×7 payroll processing for its PEO clients.
The SCI India operations will be handling data entry of paperwork, which will allow its U.S.-based client service team to focus on providing an even higher level of quality customer service to its clients. SCI has placed stringent security measures, such as a state-of-the-art firewall and 128-bit encryption, to ensure data integrity between its U.S. offices and its India operation. Over the past months, SCI has identified and implemented key processes to maintain its reputable quality of standards across the board.
At the same time, SCI has moved its Atlanta operation center into larger premises. One of the highlights of the 25,000-square-foot office in Lawrenceville is a best-in-class payroll center to accommodate the growing number of clients. The Atlanta operation center handles payroll distribution, benefits administration, and other HR services for SCI clients located primarily in the Southeastern region. This facility works in conjunction with the Tampa office through a PlatformOne IBM data center partnership to provide mutual backup systems for ensuring business continuation in the event of emergencies, such as power outages or severe weather conditions.
In recent years, SCI has established itself as a dominant player in the PEO industry with its cutting edge technology. By expanding overseas SCI can utilize global human capital to provide clients with the best products and services while consistently managing costs, said J.C. Dominguez, president, SCI.
Additionally, SCI has completed its acquisition of the HHGI division of Naples-based PEO Employee Professionals adding 1,400 lives and $40 million in payroll to the SCI portfolio. Dominguez noted, With the acquisition of HHGI, SCI has gained direct access to key accounts that will accelerate the growth of our PEO business.
