Strong Leadership Is A Plus For TeamLogic IT Franchise Owners
Top-down support means franchise owners can focus on growing and not lose out on strategic, long-term planning
Many small business owners say there aren’t enough hours in the day to both run the business and plan for its future. TeamLogic IT franchise owners agree, but also benefit from a corporate team that’s working on vetting new products, coordinating vendor relations and setting aggressive, realistic growth goals that benefit the entire network.
“We are the strategic partner for every franchise,” explains Chuck Lennon, President. “It’s hard for anyone running a business, particularly in the early period, to stop and think about the industry as a whole, or map out a growth strategy that covers several years. We do that, seeking owners’ input all the while, so that TeamLogic IT can continue leading the managed IT services industry.”
Multiple biz-dev angles tracked and evaluated
That partnership is effective because nothing is left to chance. Whether it’s technology, small-business operational issues or government regulations, TeamLogic IT’s corporate team is assessing, evaluating and reporting back to TeamLogic IT franchise owners on the issue, and the recommended next steps. The corporate team can lend the brand’s weight to troubleshooting when necessary.
“We are able to provide that ‘eagle eye’ on the industry as a whole, but because of our size we also are able to go to bat for any TeamLogic IT franchise owner in many different ways,” Chuck adds. “If there’s a problem with a vendor, we can very quickly and efficiently escalate that to the top people. We have a very large network that translates into a lot of buying power and that’s very valuable for our franchises. We get better pricing, but we also get better response if issues arise.”
Competitive landscape requires monitoring
TeamLogic IT operates in an industry that’s crowded, and becoming even more so. That landscape is filled with mergers and acquisitions now, and that’s valuable information that a TeamLogic IT franchise owner wants to be aware of, but doesn’t have the bandwidth to track. Enter the corporate team.
“You have a lot of vendors and other players changing their roles, and a trusted partner can turn into a competitor very quickly,” Chuck says. “They will market to our clients, and so we watch that activity like a hawk. Then we can let franchise owners know what the implication is, for example, when a key vendor of ours is acquired by someone who may be creating a break-fix brand that will try to poach our business. Our franchise owners and their teams rely on us to monitor the industry, help in specific situations and also provide big-picture thinking. We work very hard to make all that happen, and we don’t disappoint.”
TeamLogic IT is the technology franchise small and medium-sized businesses increasingly rely on for turnkey support.
