Technology Roadmap Gives TeamLogic IT Franchises Competitive Edge
Constantly monitoring evolutions in technology products and trends is one way TeamLogic IT helps franchise owners grow their business
Getting there may be half the fun, but it’s also important to have a destination in mind when growing a successful small business. That’s why TeamLogic IT franchise owners are headed for the future with a plan all mapped out.
In addition to the initial training and support franchise owners get when they open a TeamLogic IT franchise, there’s also the ability to tap into a knowledge base of products and services that are available now, as well as what’s coming down the road, says Chuck Lennon, President.
Connecting the right systems to business
“When we talk about ‘growth,’ we’re not just referring to dots on a map as we open new franchises around the United States,” Chuck says. “We’re talking about the support we provide to franchises to help them get to the next level. That can be through sales and marketing training and support, or through webinars for techs on specific systems. Even more importantly, we are working to follow and track IT trends and products so we can alert our network to what’s coming — and how they can benefit from it.”
As an example, TeamLogic IT franchise owners and their teams were on board early with cloud computing, creating an entire module that defined what cloud computing is and does, who wants it and why, and how services and support for it could be added to managed IT services contracts for new and existing customers. Result? TeamLogic IT franchises were on-trend, ahead of competitors and able to monetize their knowledge.
Vendor relationships provide early access
TeamLogic IT also has longtime, solid relationships with vendors across the IT spectrum, which deepens its ability to track and anticipate trends. This also works in the favor of TeamLogic IT franchise owners, Chuck points out.
“New programs and products are being researched, developed and introduced all the time,” he says. “It would be exhausting to keep up with all that and try to run a successful business. Our owners are able to do both, because we’re engaging with the industry and passing along what we learn so that they have not just knowledge of the latest trends, but also the products and other offerings that support it.”
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 around 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 healthcare, legal and accounting. Along the way, TeamLogic IT has grown to more than 100 locations around North America, and continues to expand in both new and existing markets.
