Cloud Computing Is Valuable Service Line For TeamLogic IT Franchises
Ensuring clients are able to maximize remote functionality
When everyone began working remotely in March 2020, a lot of companies were caught unprepared. Not TeamLogic IT franchise clients, who were ready for cloud computing thanks to comprehensive, turnkey managed IT services contracts.
“When a TeamLogic IT franchise begins working with a customer, they look at their entire IT platform,” explains Lee Dye, Vice President of Franchise Support and Training. “That means analyzing their hardware and software assets, and identifying vulnerabilities or shortfalls. Then, TeamLogic IT can make recommendations for enhancements, upgrades and safety protocols.”
Cloud computing becomes a must-have IT element
For many small- and medium-sized companies, the ability to work remotely via access to physical servers or cloud-based operations was a pipe dream. They knew they wanted it, but were afraid of the downtime or expense. That meant a lot of scrambling, and lost business, when they had to shutter their physical operations. Their TeamLogic IT technology franchise partners showed them a smooth, simple way forward.
“Business owners can be afraid of change, because they have heard the horror stories of systems being down for days,” Dye says. “With a managed IT services contract, a TeamLogic IT franchise customer gets ongoing analysis and recommendations, which means there’s no huge, one-time shift in operations. Instead, TeamLogic IT is at the table all the time, making sure that the business has a working, scalable and well-protected IT system.”
Franchisees trained to upsell into the cloud
In some cases, that has meant overcoming objections from a potential client. Having the facts on hand and being able to point out the value of having not just a managed IT services contract, but also a cloud-based element of operations, is something every TeamLogic IT franchise owner has, thanks to industry-leading onboarding and continuing education around marketing and sales.
“We know that we have to do more than simply teach someone to run a franchise,” Dye says. “We also teach them how TeamLogic IT is different, and how they can capitalize on all we offer to make a difference in their clients’ businesses. Our franchise owners are very comfortable talking about the pluses of cloud computing and all our other offerings, as well as managed IT services in general. And if they hit a snag, we’re here to support them and help keep deals moving forward.”
TeamLogic IT is the technology franchise small and medium-sized businesses increasingly rely on for turnkey support.

The company now serves a wide and growing variety of clients in every business sector, from tourism and hospitality to healthcare, legal and accounting.
