Ground vs. Cloud Computing: TeamLogic IT Helps Clients Evaluate Options
Franchise owners are subject-matter experts on all things tech, which gives clients peace of mind and helps build strong recurring business
Buy a new server rack or build a cloud system? It’s a common question for businesses of all sizes as they evaluate their computing options, and it’s one that a TeamLogic IT franchise owner and his or her team can tackle easily.
TeamLogic IT is continually expanding its service offerings, as well as refreshing and updating technology that its franchise techs already install, monitor and operate on behalf of clients. That means that whatever the trend might be, franchise owners are on top of it and ready to make recommendations.
Cloud option is good for some, not all
“When cloud computing began to take off a few years ago, we were right in there,” says Chuck Lennon, Executive Vice President. “Thanks to a strong and growing network of vendors, we were able to study all the major solutions from providers and then get that information out to the franchise owners. That let them be first in the door.”
At the same time, those same TeamLogic IT teams could let clients know that cloud options, at least in that moment, might not be best for them. That kind of honesty vs. a desire to upsell no matter what is a major TeamLogic IT differentiator. It’s also a big part of why so many TeamLogic IT customers are managed IT services clients.
Legacy systems often fill the bill
“When a relationship is built through the ongoing presence of managed IT, clients know they can call us with anything and everything,” Lennon explains. “They appreciate that, and they also tend to make referrals when they are asked how they’re handling their IT needs.”
And because TeamLogic IT franchises do have that deep bench of expertise and products, they can sometimes go “old school” and recommend a terrestrial system that more than meets a company’s needs. So, in the cloud or on the ground, TeamLogic IT franchise owners grow their business by having the right services and support, no matter what the IT challenge may be.
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 healthcare, 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.
