TeamLogic IT Franchises Help Develop IT Business Continuity Plans for SMBs
The pandemic had many businesses scrambling to set up virtual operations and more, making them realize the value of a backup and continuity plan
In March 2020, communities across America shut down for what everyone thought might be a few weeks as the COVID-19 pandemic swept across the country. Two years later, we’re all still feeling the effects — especially businesses that didn’t have a backup plan in place, this was not the case for TeamLogic It franchises.
TeamLogic IT technology franchise customers were luckier than most. As a managed services provider, or MSP, TeamLogic IT offers clients a managed IT services contract. That means not just ongoing IT maintenance and repairs, it also covers planning ahead — and planning for contingencies.
Business continuity is top of mind in today’s economy
In 2020, that meant small- and medium-size businesses working with a TeamLogic IT technology franchise had a head start on getting employees set up for remote operations, moving functions to the cloud for easier offsite access and much more. That’s the kind of forward thinking that companies are looking for now, according to the Kaseya 2021 IT Operations Survey, which found some gaps in their thinking.
“A remarkable 82% of the respondents said that they back up their servers — physical and virtual,” the survey said, adding “Only about a third of the respondents (36%) back up their SaaS [software as a service] application data. This is indicative of the fact that most businesses are still under the impression that their SaaS service providers are responsible for their SaaS data. In most cases, businesses have this responsibility, not the SaaS vendor.”
A cybersecurity franchise offering wraparound care
TeamLogic IT franchise owners ensure that the businesses they support are aware of what their providers — SaaS and otherwise — do and don’t do around backups, cybersecurity protection and more. The end result is a business that always stays current with its hardware and software needs.
Importantly, that kind of forward thinking also protects business operations against the unexpected — such as a global pandemic. This is invaluable to smaller operators, and it’s why TeamLogic IT saw huge demand for services over the last couple of years and has continued to open new franchises at a record pace.
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 245 locations around North America and continues to expand in both new and existing markets.
