TeamLogic IT Franchise Cybersecurity Services Earn Media During Work-From-Home Era
Favorable coverage showcasing safety and security savvy is just the latest way franchise owners benefit from brand’s high profile
For more than a decade, TeamLogic IT technology franchise owners have been helping small- and medium-size business owners safeguard their data and information. In 2020, however, turning away hackers and other would-be thieves became a home-based problem as well.
That’s because the COVID-19 pandemic forced business owners to shutter for a few weeks, and then reopen in a limited capacity. They, and many of their employees, were forced to work from home offices. And often, those remote locations didn’t have the firewalls and safeguards in place that were needed. Enter TeamLogic IT.
Supporting business owners in any location
A recent article in The Boss magazine highlighted the need for beefed-up home cybersecurity. TeamLogic IT was front and center, talking about how computers, laptops and peripherals can and should be protected.
“The dependence on technology has never been greater, and the small businesses we serve cannot afford to be hacked. If their networks go down, they’re essentially out of business,” said Chuck Lennon, Executive Vice President, in the article. “There’s very little tolerance for downtime. Our franchise owners benefit, and today, 50% to 70% of their revenue comes from managed IT services, which means they have a predictable stream of revenue that allows them to grow effectively over the long term.”
Cybersecurity: a core TeamLogic IT franchise offering
When smartphones and other handheld devices began to proliferate, TeamLogic IT saw opportunity. In addition to providing the valuable service of integrating those devices into business operational systems, franchise owners also recommended vital security fixes that would keep the entire network safe. And, as Lennon stated, it all ties into the TeamLogic IT managed IT services business model.
“Business owners knew all about keeping their servers safe, and about phishing scams and things of that nature,” he says. “What they didn’t know about were the myriad other ways hackers can come in via the cloud and through modems, phones, tablets and other devices. When they find out that a TeamLogic IT franchise owner can make it all safe and secure, and do so as part of a monthly contract, they are very eager to sign up. IT’s good business for them, and a steady source of recurring revenue for our franchise owners.”
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.
