TeamLogic IT Franchise Owners Grab Huge Share Of Lucrative Cybersecurity Market
Online threats continue to proliferate, and business owners value a trusted partner who has the solutions for today and tomorrow
When TeamLogic IT technology franchise owners get together, the conversation often turns to those “3 a.m.” calls from clients — and how they were able to help. That’s because TeamLogic IT has become one of the nation’s most trusted managed IT services providers in the realm of cybersecurity.
“From the very beginning, we knew that cybersecurity would be a core component of our business,” says Chuck Lennon, Executive Vice President. “When we were structuring what TeamLogic IT’s managed IT services offering would look like, cybersecurity was front and center in that setup.”
Forward-looking services build revenue
Because of that advance planning more than a decade ago, TeamLogic IT franchise owners were ready when existing clients, as well as potential new ones, called with issues or concerns. Those calls usually led to additional services as well as new business, all boosting the franchise’s bottom line while also elevating its community profile.
“People were reading about malware and ransomware attacks, and they were concerned — and rightly so,” Lennon says. “They didn’t know how to educate employees about phishing emails, for instance, and they had no idea if the antivirus software they had was up to the task. It often was not.”
Tracking trends and staying prepared
TeamLogic IT cybersecurity services also mean that clients know someone is looking out for their best interests down the road, because threats never really go away.
“For every fix, there’s someone out there working on a way to hack into or through it,” Lennon says. “Our vendor partners know that, and they are always showing us new products and services. We vet those, and pass along the best and most effective ones to our franchise network. Our clients could never devote the kind of time and resources to cybersecurity monitoring and prevention we do, and they are well aware of that. They appreciate it, which is why we keep, and grow, their business over time.”
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 nearly 200 locations around North America and continues to expand in both new and existing markets.
