TeamLogic IT R&D Team Assesses Future Tech — and How to Monetize It
By assessing what’s coming, and how it integrates and advances today’s platforms, decisions can be made that boost business and revenues for franchise owners
Today’s fad may be tomorrow’s go-to solution for a particular IT issue. Or it may be just a fad with no staying power. Telling the difference between the two, and assessing everything in between, are where a savvy R&D team makes a huge difference for TeamLogic IT franchise owners.
“Consumers flock to new smartphones and other devices, and businesses are no different,” says Chuck Lennon, Executive Vice President. “But when you’re talking about spending thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of dollars — then you want to make sure you’re buying what you need and what will work with your current setup to achieve your business goals. For that, most small and medium-size businesses need a trusted advisor.”
Assessing needs, making recommendations
Enter a TeamLogic IT franchise owner. He or she can speak clearly and confidently about everything from cloud computing setups to security systems that protect current and future equipment. Why? Because TeamLogic IT’s R&D team not only evaluates and recommends hardware and software, they also have their collective finger on the pulse of trending technology.”
“It would be easy to walk in with a parts catalog and tell a client, ‘You should buy this server,’ ” Lennon says. “TeamLogic IT is much more than that. We have the expertise in what’s out there now, as well as what’s coming, so when our franchise owners are at the table with current and potential clients, they can not only make a recommendation, they can get to the business ‘why’ of it in a way that makes sense to the client. That builds trust and respect.”
Predicting with confidence matters
And because TeamLogic IT’s R&D professionals are seeing IT trends and then aligning those with what’s on the market now, TeamLogic IT franchise owners can look at their entire client base to see who needs an upgrade or a system change, and then proactively recommend that.
“Again, this is far more than break-fix, or doing an install and hoping things stay the same for a while,” Lennon says. “TeamLogic IT comes in, sees what a company has, and then lays out what needs to change now and what needs to be done down the road. Our R&D efforts tie in beautifully with the managed IT services model, and it all combines to help franchise owners bring in new business as well as create more opportunities with the client base they already have.”
TeamLogic IT is the technology franchise small and medium-sized businesses increasingly rely on for turnkey support. TeamLogic IT’s managed IT services contracts give clients peace of mind about their technology needs, and provide franchise owners with a steady, predictable revenue stream. The company now serves a wide and growing variety of clients in every business sector, from tourism and hospitality to health care, legal and accounting. Along the way, TeamLogic IT has grown to more than 145 locations throughout North America and continues to expand in both new and existing markets.
