TeamLogic IT Franchise Owners Poised To Capitalize On Booming MSP Market
More and more businesses of all sizes are realizing that outsourced IT operations with a trusted provider is a sound business strategy
When it comes to commercial IT these days, MSP is the place to be. And it would make sense that the TeamLogic IT franchise opportunity comes up a lot in conversations around MSP providers, since this is the brand that pretty much invented the concept.
“When TeamLogic IT was just a concept, we looked at the IT landscape to see what was missing,” explains Chuck Lennon, Executive Vice President. “What we found was that there were a lot of ‘Mom & Pop” vendors taking care of immediate needs, but no one was helping small- and medium-size businesses plan for the future. It was a huge gap for an IT franchise opportunity, and so we filled it.”
A business model that goes beyond ‘break-fix’ work
The concept is simple: Take those one-off jobs of repairing a mainframe, or dealing with an equipment upgrade, and bundle them into something bigger. This would be a managed IT services contract, which would partner a TeamLogic IT franchise more closely to its clients — and create an ongoing revenue stream.
“By positioning ourselves as a trusted partner vs. just a vendor, we got a seat at the table,” Lennon says. “That meant when a company was talking about opening a second location, for example, our franchise owners and techs were there to take notes and then lay out an IT-support and expansion plan. And that, in turn, meant that the business grew in a sensible, strategic way with no technology gaps.”
IT franchise means recurring, predictable income
Those managed IT services contracts were good for TeamLogic IT franchise owners, because they meant steady, predictable monthly income. They have other advantages as well, Lennon points out.
“When our franchise owners are in on a business’ growth strategy, they are doing more than recommending the IT framework,” he says. “They are also recommending exactly what equipment to buy — and thanks to our carefully vetted and growing supplier network, they are in a position to offer those hardware and software solutions. It’s a closed loop that means a single, turnkey vendor for the client, and enhanced revenue opportunities 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. 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.
