TeamLogic IT’s Vendor Vetting Puts Franchise Owners Ahead of Tech Curve
Evaluation of capabilities, plus ensuring a good fit with current products and offerings, results in high-quality enhancements to our network
Keeping up with the latest hardware and software entering today’s fast-evolving IT landscape is a full-time job. It’s also vital to every TeamLogic IT franchise owner, even if finding the time to do it is difficult.
That’s why the TeamLogic IT corporate team works to track trends and vet new offerings. They continually meet with the brand’s existing vendor network, and with companies who want to become partners, to see what’s new, what’s valuable and what can help produce better results for clients and a bigger bottom line.
Creating value for franchise owners
“Owning a TeamLogic IT franchise means meeting with clients, networking, going on sales calls, helping techs if necessary … there’s not a lot of time left over to evaluate new equipment and software,” says Chuck Lennon, executive vice president of business development. “That’s why we have an experienced team in our corporate office to handle that job. They meet with our vendors, as well as with potential new ones, to look at upgrades, improvements and entirely new technology.”
If a product or service is deemed to be a good fit for TeamLogic IT, whether as a standalone offering or as part of a managed IT services contract, then it’s added to the roster of available tech, and a webinar or other training is scheduled so owners and technicians can learn all about it.
Growing network adds to service opportunities
The process is designed to make sure that every TeamLogic IT franchise has the tools at its disposal to help with any and all client needs, Lennon says.
“Over time we have been able to grow our vendor network the right way — quality versus quantity,” he says. “Now we have dozens of excellent offerings, and our franchise owners know what they do and how to present them to their clients. What’s more, we’re now big enough to negotiate bulk pricing on behalf of our franchise owners, so they are able to provide value for their clients while also growing their bottom line.”
