You Don’t Need IT Experience to Thrive in a TeamLogic IT Franchise
TeamLogic IT offers robust training and ongoing support to help CPAs transition into business ownership
When you make the decision to leave a career to start a new business, there’s always going to be a learning curve. Luckily, for people with an accounting background, the learning curve is far shorter. As a CPA, CFO or accounting professional, you already come equipped with essential skills that will help you transition into the role of a business owner. A TeamLogic IT franchise is a perfect fit for CPAs and CFOs.
TeamLogic IT can teach you the rest. Since our founding in 2005, TeamLogic IT has been helping entrepreneurs with zero background in IT thrive in a business. It’s for this reason that Entrepreneur magazine has consistently ranked us on their prestigious annual “Franchise 500,” list for several consecutive years in a row, and is why Forbes magazine ranked us as the No. 4 franchise opportunity to buy in the low-investment category.
“We are very hands-on with new franchisees,” says Patrick Spaan, Director of Franchise Development with TeamLogic IT. “We require all TeamLogic IT owners to make a business plan annually. We teach our franchisees how to manage their businesses by looking at their financial statements, rather than using their checkbooks as a metric of how their business is doing. We do one-on-one coaching sessions, we also host group sessions and members of our executive team routinely make trips into the field to assess our franchisees in their businesses. From a franchisee perspective, the expertise of our operational staff, training staff, product technology staff, sales staff and our marketing staff is only a phone call away. We’re accessible, but more importantly, we’re accountable.”
How Will We Support You in Your Business?
From the moment you sign your franchise agreement, and everyday after, you have the full support of one of the leading brands in the Managed IT Services industry behind you.
Soon after you sign your franchise agreement, you will head to our headquarters in Southern California to begin a 6-day training program that focuses on four key facets to the business: Employee Management, Financial Management, Sales & Marketing Management and Technical Management.
In addition to the in-person training, we also provide an additional 27 hours of online training to help you prepare for the grand opening of your business. We will help you focus your energies on hiring the right technicians, implementing marketing strategies, and reaching out to key players in your community to begin networking activity.
And we don’t stop there. We also offer ongoing marketing support and technical assistance, which exists to help answer any questions you may have, whenever they arise.
“They continue to support you if you have technology questions by providing marketing materials and tools, sales coaching, help with administrative questions, and help with bookkeeping and accounting,” says Stewart Paul, owner of 11 TeamLogic IT franchises in the Great Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey areas. “They host webinars on a regular basis, which, if people don’t take advantage of, they’re crazy. They are excellent. I haven’t attended a webinar or a conference where I didn’t get something that I could bring into my business and have it pay dividends.”
Because you will be running your TeamLogic IT franchise like a CEO, you will not be responsible for the IT solutions – your technicians will do that. Instead, your primary focus will be on networking in your community, managing the sales process, and growing your business.
We provide extensive ongoing coaching to help you become more confident in selling your services to the small- and mid-sized businesses in your community who need the services TeamLogic IT provides.
“We’ve grown very well,” says Todd Harrell, owner of a TeamLogic IT franchise in Central New Jersey. “Our focus has always been about delivering solutions that truly meet the needs of clients. We go above and beyond to find their pain points and figure out how we can help them. Our goal was to have the majority of revenue be recurring revenue, and not project based, and we’ve succeeded in this by consistently demonstrating our value to our clients. That’s been our focus all along.”
